iChat's picture-in-picture and Snapshot is "mirrored"
This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
Views from your iSight camera appear flipped or reversed to you, like a mirror image. These views include:
- In the "Preview" window in Preferences under the Video tab
- The picture-in-picture view while in a conference
- The Snapshot
- The preview in the First Time User interface
This is by design. The effect is similar to what you would see if you were looking into a mirror.
Your image will appear in its natural, unreversed state to those with whom you chat.
