What software options are there for taking videos and or pictures within Ubuntu (Much like Apple's Photobooth)?
Please limit one software solution per answer and include key features/description of the software
Cheese uses your webcam to take photos and videos, applies fancy special effects and lets you share the fun with others.
Cheese uses GStreamer to apply fancy effects to photos and videos. With Cheese it is easy to take photos of you, your friends, pets or whatever you want and share them with others. After the success of the Summer of Code, the development continued and we still are looking for people with nice ideas and patches ;)
