Thanks for the answer, but there still is a problem of mirror images.
When I take a photo using the iSight and PhotoBooth without autoflip turned off, then the photo taken is reversed. When autoflip is on there is no problem.
If I use the video record function in PhotoBooth then the movie recorded is reversed even no matter whether the setting of autoflip is on or off.
I have installed iGlasses and it looks like the way to go. I did pick up another thread on this subject and explained why a mirror image is used. Maybe Apple should put the explanation in the help pages for PhotoBooth and about the autoflip setting.
I am happy now and no longer worried that friends will think I am going backwards in time being reversed.
