People nowadays have several reasons to take pictures. We share them with our friends and most importantly, we take them so that we can update our profile picture on the social networking sites like FaceBook, friendster or even Twitter.
If you use a mac, you will love the Photo Booth where you get the chance to take pictures of yourself with your built-in computer camera. But what if you don’t have a mac? Well now there are online applications that will now allow you to play around with different cool effects like black and white, fisheye, etc…
Not only do these applications allow you to share your mug with friends and family, you can also share them on the social networking sites that you belong to.
Cameroid - Lets you take pictures using your webcam – not only plain pictures but it also allows the user to use special effects the same as that of the PhotoBooth available on the Mac.
Seenly - Seenly is similar to Cameroid, it is your alternative to PhotoBooth.
DailyBooth - Document and share your life with others. Get real time updates on what your friends and family are doing every day.
DailyMugshot - Daily Mugshot is a free service which helps you chronicle daily images of yourself and share them as an animated sequence. They have widgets which you can place on your profile or blog and they automatically update when you take new mugshots. (You can always make your mugshots private so only you can see them.)
Whatever your reason for taking those mug shots, the great thing is now you do not need to own a Mac to take those photo booth style photos. There are so many online alternatives now. All you need is a webcam and some creativity!
