How to Take a Picture of Myself With a Mac Computer

When Apple introduced Photo Booth software, it became easy to take pictures of yourself with a Mac. As with most Mac software, Photo Booth is intuitive and easy to use. Once you have snapped a photo of yourself, you can use the photo as a desktop picture, email it to friends or upload it to a website. Photo Booth also allows you to change your photo and add some pizazz to it.
