Every Mac that comes with an iSight is loaded with Photo Booth. When I was Mac-less, I used to frequent Apple stores and somehow Photo Booth seemed to appeal to me then. Sadly, after I bought a Mac for myself, the attraction didn’t last very long and later, I sort of forgot about this nifty application which attracted me in the first place.

To bring back the romance, I went on a search to see if I could add more effects to Photo Booth. There were only a few interesting pre-packaged ones and most of them had something to do with image distortion (squeeze, bulge, dent, mirror etc.). That was fun for a while but I need the “Wow” factor back desperately.

In my search, I managed to uncover a few sites that offer a good collection of free Photo Booth effects.

From B-L-A-C-K-O-P, I found CatEye, which is a collection of 5 sets of effects. Each set has its own theme:

  • RetroPixels – adaptation of 60’s and 70’s video effects.
  • Love For 80s – bringing back Space Invaders, Pong and VHS (yes, that’s video tape quality, ladies and gentlemen!).
  • Bent Pels – optical image distortion with a twist.
  • BoobToob – a set of TV screen effects.
  • Mac

  • FewTile – tiled-images effect.
  • I especially like the BoobToob set, it makes me feel like I’m on television. If you’re sick or bored with the default Photo Booth effects, this will definitely bring back some fun.

    CatEye will only work on Leopard and is free (direct download link)

    From another site called Macpoupou Factory, I found a collection of Mac Photobooth effects which has been around for quite some time: MoreIchatEffects. After adding these effects, I realised that I have been missing out on a lot of fun! The effects are incredibly awesome beyond the ones Apple provide, especially Hologram – if you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll love this one. It’s strangely uncanny.

    More iChat Effects 2.0.3 (direct download link)

    Besides that, several other effects like ASCII art and Line Overlay are pretty cool.

    MoreIchatEffects bundles 48 different effects and will only work on Leopard.

    UPDATE: This effects bundle crashes when running on Snow Leopard in 64-bit mode. More information here.

    I can’t remember how I managed to find this next site but it offers 4 Photo Booth effects (Leopard only), from which I only like one. Visit the site and guess which one it is and let me now in the comments. (Hint: Did you know that Photo Booth has the ability to record video? You can ask Bush what he thought about the shoe).

    Finally, a Photo Booth effect that must not be left out: Obamafy. Following in the footsteps of President-Elect Barack Obama, you can now quickly and simply create your “Hope” posters. Remember, Leopard only.

    UPDATE: Obamafy crashes Photo Booth on Snow Leopard. At the time of writing, it worked on Leopard. Save the effect in /Users/{your username}/Library/Compositions.

    In order to remove unwanted effects, just delete them from the appropriate folder. Keep in mind that if you add a lot of new effects at once, Photo Booth will crash while loading them. It’s best to add one set at a time.

    Also, these effects will work with iChat! So, you can fool your friends into thinking that something’s gone wonky with your iSight or that they’re really seeing you through a hologram.

    UPDATE: I strongly advise you to install each set of effects individually. Remember to quit Photo Booth before installing. To uninstall, empty the ~/Library/Compositions or /Library/Compositions folder.

    If Photo Booth becomes unresponsive, Force Quit the application and delete the effects from the Compositions folder.

But for some reason it wont delete and then it says it sent a message to the creater of the effects for making up passwords when i didn't AND I JUST WANT TO DELETE IT!

    16. How do you uninstall CatEye?

    17. hihi um how do you download it? (very confuzzled)

    18. okay, so the effects are great, but how do you download them?

    20. Hey i want these but how do i download them onto my photobooth?

    21. How do you get them?!!! wheres the download button????

    22. I am having the same problem with the 'open in 32 bit mode' and 'open using rosetta.' I just bought my macbook about two days ago and even the sales associate told me to download these effects but that it was mandatory to change it to 32 bit mode. however, when I pull up the 'get info' window for photobooth and ichat, there is no checkbox for 32 bit mode. the effects are working, but I have noticed that my computer runs slower and I don't want it to crash. please help.

    23. Can somebody post the .qtz files for the ones that require an install? I'm using my school MacBook, so I can't install them without the administrator password. Thanks.

    24. I am having the same problem. I have hit get info and the only box to check in open in rossetta. My ichat and photo booth dont even run anymore. Any help would be highly appericated.

    25. just leopard? sucks i have snow one

    26. how can i download the effects?

    27. why is my camera on photobooth so slow

    28. Why is my camera on photo booth so slow

    29. How can I get rid of this? i cant open photo booth and take a picture without it shutting down now...

    30. how do you download them!!!?

    31. how do you downlaod them

    32. thank u soo muchh

    33. uhh i dont think it works on snowleopard

    34. were the heck do you go to get them??

    35. ive deleted the effects in the composition folder but it still has the effects that say demo and stuff. how do i COMPLETELY delete all the effects and start with the basic photo booth.
      this fucked up my comp

      • Im having the same problem.. did you ever find a solution?

    36. Hey, I love these effects...but I'm using a school-issued Macintosh Running Leopard.
      My school blocked any and all installers that edit the Applications folder, so I can't install More iChat Effects.
      Is there any place that has the individual .qtz files for download?

      • Okay, I think I figured out part of the problem.
        The installer skips past the destination select, no matter what I do. So, it's installing for all users, which I can't do, because one of the users is 'admin' so, obviously, I'd need the admin password.

        Any way to get the installer to install it for just lil' old me?

    37. Gosh you people are really stupid, just read everything above and stop asking every 5 seconds how to!! >.<

      Jackson Chung you saved my boring photo booth, thanks man :D

    38. how do we make a new page for effects? cuz i downloaded all of the effects on this page, but i dont know how to make a new page so that i can add them all to photobooth :(

    39. i cant delete the ones with the 80's and all that. ( I did the whole library/compositions/ thing and it is not working on my computer and the application keeps closing automatically. this computer is brand new so i am not sure what to do.

    40. open finder, then go to macintosh HD, then applications. find Photo Booth. right click and select get info. there should be a check box that says open in 32 bit mode. it should be there.

      • I have the same 'issue' as ee, I have followed the instructions and have no option to click to run in 32-bit, just 'Open in Rosetta'. Does anyone have any further advice for those in this position? Thank you in advance.

        And thank you so very much for this article and the links.

    41. i cant find ' run in 32 bit mode' cos i only see 'open in rosetta'
      wht should i do?

    42. this might help some of you, my photo booth started crashing also after i added in the new effects. but after i went into the 'get info' option on photo booth and checked 'run in 32-bit mode' it started to work fine :)

    43. dont download. these effects make photo booth really slow

      • If you don't buy a mac that has the inbuilt camera, you can still download an app that is almost identical to photo booth but with a few little differences, and it will take photos with your plug-in webcam or camera. Here is the link to the web site where you can download it:

        hope this helps in any way.

      • the link will get you to the web site where you can download an app that only requires your computer to be a mac, whether you have an in-built camera or not :)
        Just buy a plug-in webcam, and it should allow you to take photos using it

    69. will this slow down my computer/make it crash/do anything harmfull to it???????????????????????????? because i REALLY want them but im afraid something bad will happen to my computer. and that would be bad because its a brand new computer and i share it with the rest of my family so everyone would get mad if i ruin the computer. please answer!!!!

    71. After reading comments and/or complaints I (speaking for myself of course) would use some UNIX comands to get rid of unwanted files and/or
