You can also customize effects for photo gallery.

For PC or desktop, you need to have a webcam to make Pixect work. In mobile phones, camera is in-built.

So you don’t need webcam for smart phones.

This app works for different country languages like English, Portugese, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, Swedish and Norway.

Pixect – Definition

I decided to do a small research on this project. 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.

In 80s and 90s, people use to visit a kiosk for photo booth effects. But this has changed after the advent of pc and mobile. You can take pictures online and apply different digital effects.

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 Booth

The above screenshot shows the different features of the application.

  • Click on the red button below. There is a 3 second delay.

Pixect Effects

The camera online effects are shown in the below screenshots.

pixect_webcam_photoFirst time I faced some problems. 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. I could also share it 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.

Photo Collage

There is a new option using which you can take multiple photos of yourself and summarize into one picture.

pixect_multi_frameYou can also flip the photo horizontally and vertically online and is visible to you before you take the snapshot. You can also pause the webcam.

It’s also possible to change the brightness, contrast, hue and saturation.

pixect_brightness_settingsI was first not able to change these settings. Later I found out that, by moving the slider we can increase or decrease the brightness settings.

What are the Effects ?

The photo booth video effects will make you a dream photographer. All you have to do is click the “Normal” button beside the camera button. That will display number of effects possible with Pixect.

pixect_online_photo_booth_effectsYou can click on each effect and that will display the photo in that mode.

Once you click the camera button, a snapshot is taken.

Then you can save the picture with that particular effect and share it on different social network sites.

Conclusion

I really like the simplicity of the software. All you need to capture your image is a web cam.
