check your photo booth folder permissions
macintosh hd/users/your_user/pictures/"photo booth"
I've had a number of the machines at my building have that folder's owner become blank or change to system.
once you have the folder selected in the finder go to
and if your user isn't listed as the owner with
read & write
privileges then click the + to add your user and/or change your privilages then try to take a picture in photobooth.
i did this and the pictures folder came back, i can see my pictures now and now the Photo Booth app takes a picture but it freezes after taking the picture and still doesn't save it. It doesn't come back either as if its ready to take another picture. I'm having a problem with iPhoto and i'm sure the two issues are related. iPhoto won't open at all, i've restored it from backup etc but i guess i'll have to find another discussion for that one but ...my Photo Booth no longer gives me the "can't save your photo's" message but won't save the photo's just the same.
