Pixect – Create Photo Booth Effects Online

You can use Pixect to take photos online. It works in a browser and mobile also. The photo booth online picture taking is so easy, using Pixcet. The photo booth effects are awesome and can be shared on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

The Pixect video recorder is for web-cam savvy people who would like to share their videos with friends and relatives. The camera online effects are shown in the below screenshots. For mobile, camera is in-built. But for desktop, you need to have a webcam to make Pixect work.

In United States, UK and Australia people are well versed with this software application. But for me, it’s new as I am not a Mac user. So I decided to do a small research on this project. So when I checked the Wikipedia page, this is what I found about Photo Booth.

Photo Booth is a small software application for taking photos and videos with an iSight camera by Apple Inc. for Mac OS X and iOS (although only available on the iPad, starting with the iPad 2).

The cool webcam effects make your boyfriend and girlfriend envy of your videos and pictures.

So if you are a Windows user, we will likely to see about it in another post. Photo Booth is just like a web cam application where you can take a snapshot of yourself or a small video that can be displayed as a thumbnail.

What is Photo BoothThe above screenshot shows the different features of the application. Once you  click on the red button below, there is a 3 second delay. After which, a photo is taken or video clip begins recording, depending upon the setting you select.

Pixect Permissions DialogThis will be first screen if you have not authorized Pixect to access your web camera. The message is clear. Pixect never records you. Your pictures stay on your computer until you choose to share them.

pixect_webcam_photoThe first time I faced some difficulties. This is because there was another video device which was chosen by default. So I had to choose my default web cam and then re-open the web page 2 to 3 times, before I was visible.

What are the Options?

So when I clicked on the “camera” icon it immediately took a snapshot of myself.

pixect_snapshot_webcamNow I could save the image to my computer. Also I could share on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr directly using the sharing buttons. There is also a back button.

There are also two buttons beside the camera button. Using these two buttons you could capture the photo after 3 or 5 seconds. There is a new option using which you can take multiple photos of yourself and summarize into one picture.
