    Question Photo Booth - not updated in Leopard?
    Sorry for this question about a very minor thing indeed, but it's bugging me!

    In Leopard there are meant to be various changes, updates to Photo Booth. Mine however is the same as before - only 2 pgs of effects, no video backdrops.

    I installed Leopard as an upgrade on my iMac G5.

    Any thoughts?

    Muchas gracias.

    Can you post like a screenshot? Cause Photo Booth has definitely been updated with Leopard...

    I think it depends on the Mac you install it to. If your Mac didn't meet the minimum requirements or if it doesn't have a built in camera, Photo Booth might not have updated.
    You didn't tell us what Mac you're using.

    Sorry - I did say I was using an iMac G5 - is this not enough information? It certainly has a built-in camera.

    Here is more info if that helps:
    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: iMac G5
    Model Identifier: PowerMac12,1
    Processor Name: PowerPC G5 (3.1)
    Processor Speed: 2.1 GHz
    Number Of CPUs: 1
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB
    Memory: 1.5 GB
    Bus Speed: 700 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: 5.2.6f1

    I will try to post a screen shot, though I've not done this before...

    Thanks for your help.

    Btw. I am aware of what the new Photo Booth is *supposed* to be like - it's just that mine isn't it!

    Oooh, I know what might help: giving you the version number of photo booth:

    2.0.1 (72) - is that what it is supposed to be in Leopard?

    Thanks!

    According to Apple's website, back drop effects require a Core Duo or faster processor. This is why you see no change. I thought it included some G5 iMacs (specifically ones with the built-in iSight b/c not all do) which is why I asked for more specific specs.
    No need to get snippy.

    MacHeadCase - I'm a little insulted by your post. 15 min before you posted it, I did exactly that and posted the hardware system info as requested, so it should be clear that I do already know how to gather info on my Mac!

    If you can tell me how to supply the requested screenshot that would be much more helpful!

    Thanks anyway though - I know you meant well. Maybe you didn't see my previous post.

    Hmm. Didn't know about this Core Duo being required for video backdrops.

    In any case, to take a screenshot, hit Command+Shift+3 for whole screen, or Command+Shift+4 will give you a target cursor so you can drag out a screenshot.

    That post insulted you ? Jeez...

    You sounded like you didn't know how to look for the exact model of your iMac. I was just trying to help.

    Anyway. Remember that the more info you give, the faster we can help.

    Hey, no worries, not deeply insulted MacHeadCase! I think you must have missed one of my posts that's all, which made your response rather odd...

    As I said in my reply, I know you were trying to help, and I'm grateful for that!

    I will try to remember to supply as much info as I can in future. I really appreciate all the good work done in these forums.

    Yeah just saw it, my bad.

    The snow we have in the streets must be in my brain too.
