The first time I opened Photo Booth after installing "Lion" a pop-up indicated I had to wait until the "files" were re-loaded.  After that Photo Booth just crashes every time you try and say "restore window" or even if you say "don't restore window".  In other words Photo Booth can no longer be used on my iMac.  I will try and use the software on my MBA and see if it runs into the same issue.  If anyone knows a fix please let me know.

    In reading through other Photo Booth issues, I found one that said to go to the Photo Booth Application in the Finder, highlight it and go to the pulldown file menu and select "get info".  Next, un-check "Open in 32 bit" and the application will work.  I did, and it now works.  GREAT!

    From What I've found.. it seems 3ivx or Perian could cause this problem. A friend had this issue and deleted 3ivx and it fixed his crashes. Alternatively, some folks are reporting that turning off 32-bit mode (Get Info) for Photobooth has also fixed, although this was already turned off in my friend's case. Or if you have iGlasses installed.
