    Deleted packaged apps (photo booth); how do I restore them?
    Okay, not me (although I STILL haven't gotten preview back after I made this mistake >.<), my girlfriend... She deleted photo booth from her macbook, and now she's bugging me. How can she get it back?

    You can use a Application called Pacifist. It will let you extract applications out of the DVD that came with your Mac and put them back.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    The options are:

    Insert your OS X disc and head for the optional installs folder - go through that and see if photo booth is one of the available selections - if not, you're limited to:

    reinstall OS X
    or grab Pacifist
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Good call Bobtomay. I keep forgetting about Optional Installs. If it's there just install the missing application.
