Make your own virtual photo booth
Photo Booth does exactly what you would expect: it recreates the fun of being in a photo booth on your PC.
When you first download the app from the Windows 8 Store it will ask you for permission to use your webcam to create a home-based photo booth picture. From there this Windows 8 app allows you to easily apply various quirky effects to your photos before you take them. These effects include fishbowl, mirror imaging, and gray-scale.
You can only apply one effect per photo, as selecting a new effect will override the previous one. All photos are saved in a gallery within the app where you can print them, set them as the lockscreen, or share via email or social media.
Nothing in life (or photo apps) comes for free
While Photo Booth is an easy-to-use and fun program you don't get much for free. There are a limited number of effects available for free; if you want more choice, and the ability to record video, you must upgrade to the Pro version.
Fun and simple
Photo Booth is an incredibly simple Windows 8 app that effectively allows you to apply neat effects before taking photos and videos. You don't get much for free, but if you're willing to pay a little extra to recreate the fun of a photo booth then this is the app for you.
