How to Disable Flash or Countdown in Photo Booth
Photo Booth is a really fun app that comes with all macs that have a built in iSight / FaceTime front facing camera.
Here are a couple tips that make using Photo Booth on your mac even more enjoyable; the ability to disable the ‘white screen’ flash and the ability to disable the 3 second countdown.
Try them out yourself, if you want to disable flash or the countdown in Photo Booth for Mac, here’s all you need to do:
Disable Flash in Photo Booth
Disabling flash in PhotoBooth is really easy all you have to do is hold the Shift key while you click to take a picture and the screen will not flash white.
Disable Countdown in Photo Booth
Disabling the picture count down in PhotoBooth is just a matter of holding down the Option key while you click to take a picture, your photo will take immediately.
You can combine the keystrokes by holding down Option-Shift and you’ll immediately take a picture without the flash.

Simply why people hate macs……its only vamped! i paid too much for this crap!
if digital cams required you to hold shift, no one would buy them…….i wanna trash this damn mac cause of all of its combined little stupidities that aren’t user friendly!
This is ridiculous…..how am I supposed to take a decent non-flash photo without looking stupid with my hand on shift? HELP?
No options on file and only keyboard shortcuts is pretty narrow!
is there a way to PERMANENTLY disable the countdown. its annoying.
Did you ever get an answer for this?
I just got a Mac & it IS annoying! thanks
To disable Flash and Countdown at the same time:
Hold Shift Option Command and T all at the same time
Hope this helps :)
I have an IPad and some how my timer was turned off. How do I turn the timer back on?
[…] uses an all white screen as a virtual flash of sorts to brighten your mug when you take a picture (you can disable that by holding down the Shift key). I’m guessing it won’t be long until some developers […]
Is there anyway, where you don’t have to hold the keys? Maybe a preference to take the flash out completely? I just really hate that the flash makes me look even more pale. -_-
Your grammar is terrible.
[…] you want some more Photo Booth tips, you can disable the flash and countdown and set Photo Booth to flip […]
I was wondering if anyone knows of a hotkey on the keyboard that allows you to switch between video record and picture taking? I want to be able to run photobooth with out a mouse.
Please let me know.
I’m sorry. Just the Shift key would do (w/o the Command key)
You have to press & hold the Command+Shift keys BEFORE you click on the snap photo button, to disable the screen flash,
and add Option key to the combination to disable the countdown.
