If you liked the red-white-and-blue look of the Barack Obama “Hope” poster designed by street artist gone viral Shepard Fairey, Dubi Kaufmann has made a plug-in for Photo Booth that allows you to “Obamafy” your photos.

With over 4,450 downloads and counting, just about any photo you pop into it will take on iconic status. Still, Obamafying yourself won’t get you elected. As Kaufmann says, the free app is “an exercise in pop culture and is not part of any campaign nor it is an endorsement for either candidate.”

Download zip file here, then expand it. Copy the file Obamafy.qtz to /Library/Compositions, then launch Photo Booth and enjoy the Obamafy plugin.

    Is there a Flickr group?

    Are Photobooth plugins Photoshop compatible? Or is there a photoshop plugin?

  4. Bill says:

    The name is misleading. The powerful poster of President Obama was the distinct creation of Shepard Fairey. This plug-in should be called the Fairey “Obama Hope” plug-in, or something that incorporates the artist’s name.

    Thank you for writing about my pop culture experiment.

    dubista asked “how do you make this work in tiger?” -no.

    Robert asked “Is there a Flickr group?” -not yet.

    Susan Kitchens asked “Are Photobooth plugins Photoshop compatible? Or is there a photoshop plugin?” – Photobooth plugins are not Photoshop compatible and I did not make a photoshop plugin.

    Bill said that “The name is misleading. The powerful poster of President Obama was the distinct creation of Shepard Fairey. This plug-in should be called the Fairey “Obama Hope” plug-in, or something that incorporates the artist’s name.” -That would be long and confusing. I mention and link to shepard Fairey’s site.

    This did not work for me. I put the file into the Composition folder and started up Photo Booth, but do not see the effect. Is there anything else you have to do? I expected it to be in the 3rd “tab” after the strecth, squeeze, etc effects.

    What am I missing?
