Photo Booth Mirror

In an attempt to make your own image more human, less startling, Apple flips the feed from your iSight most of the time. That is, it flips the image horizontally when displaying it on your screen. It becomes a mirror, something you're used to. "This is done because for most people, the only time they see their self live is in the mirror." To others--say on the oppisite side of an iChat--the video comes through unaltered--right is right. If you want to see what they do, use iMovie or the option in Photo Booth--Edit, Auto Flip New Photos--Apple-Shift-F.

You think one's creepier than the other?

Try crossing your eyes to merge, I oughtta look friendlier then.

Or at least your average person would see so--symmetry is beautiful generally.
