Photo Booth Alternatives

Apple's webcam app Photo Booth makes memories fun with live filters and the ability to replace backgrounds. Similar tools are commonplace now but being bundled with Macs makes this one an easy choice.

Free and open-source alternatives are abundant. Easily narrow down searches by relevant features like webcam effects and video capture. Probably the most relevant feature in Photo Booth's case would be ease of use.

Photo Booth alternatives are mainly Instant Messengers but may also be Camera Apps or Screenshot Capture Tools. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Photo Booth.
