    Photo Booth was introduced after Apple switched the iMac to Intel.

    News to me! Photo Booth is included with the G5 iSight iMacs, too.
    A review article from Oct 2005 - http://www.gadgetreview.com/2005/10/...ur-isight.html

    Being a part of your OS X install, you could try an Archive & install of your OS X install. Could also be one of the bundled software, and you could try the restore DVD that shipped with your iMac. Insert that disk and install from the apps bundle that is on that disk.
    Serendipity is a lucky guess !

    I thought only the intel iMac's had iSight......
    MacBook Air 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, 80 GB, 2 GB, OS 10.7.4
    MacBook 2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo, 250 GB, 3 GB, OS 10.7.4
    MacMini 1.42 GHz G4, 160 GB, 1 GB, OS 10.5.8
    Xserve Quad 2.8 GHz Xeon, Triple 80 GB, 2 GB, OS 10.7.4
    iPhone 3GS 8 GB, Black, iOS 5.1.1
    Plus many other older macs.

    The last generation of G5 iMacs had iSights. Photo Booth should be on the system CDs, probably as an optional install, if not, use Pacifist.

    It should be there;
    Photo Booth was unveiled at an invite-only special media event in October, 2005, Apple released Photo Booth alongside the Rev. C iMac G5, the first one with a built-in iSight camera.
    http://guides.macrumors.com/Photo_Booth

    It is installed by default on Leopard, with or without iSight.
    Power to Burn.
    At speeds of up to 733MHz,
    The most powerful Mac in history
    burns CDs, burns DVDs, and
    burns Pentiums

    I have another post on here, I have a first gen imac with an external iMac. Installe dleopard runs great and can use Photo Booth. Problem is I have come to the conclusion you need atleast and Intel DUo to use effect wether in photo booth or iChat video.
