Not only as mirror
Authored by: victory on Feb 25, '10 11:50:14AM

Well, this is probably beside the spirit of the original hint, but I tend to use Photo Booth on my MacBook as a quick-and-dirty scanner. Obviously, I'm not talking OCR-capable images or anything. Yet the built-in iSight is decent enough for quickly capturing sticky notes, receipts, back-of-the-napkin sketches, etc. (Another surprisingly common use I've found is to document license keys for physical software packages. This way I can keep the original card/form/sticker filed away for safekeeping and it reduces the chance of making mistakes over writing down the keys somewhere by hand)

Just remember to enable 'Auto Flip New Photos' in Photo Booth or you'll have to manually flip the image afterwards.
