Photo Booth can do more than take snapshots, it can also create video.

Here is how to do that:

1. Open Photo Booth - If it is not in your dock, you can find it in your Applications folder. Drag it to your dock for easy access.

2. Set the Application to "Auto Flip New Items". That way you won't have to flip the photos with text on them after they are taken.

2. To take a snapshot, the picture button should be selected, which also displays the camera you click to take the snapshot.

4. When taking a picture or video, after you click the center button, Photo Booth will count down from 3 before taking the picture or recording the video.

5. Once pictures and/or video is taken, thumbnails appear. You can drag them to your desktop or into other applications from here.
