I always wondered, how about taking photos throught console? I mean, without using PhotoBooth. Making bash scripts that use the built-in camera would be awesome! One easy way is installing isightcapture.
This is how you can use it
- $ ./isightcapture image.jpg
will output a 640x480 image in JPEG format
- $ ./isightcapture -w 320 -h 240 -t png image.png
will output a scaled 320x240 image in PNG format
Note: Seems the project has been discontinued.
