Cheese is a GNOME application designed to take photos and videos of you and your friends with your webcam, add special effects to them and share them with your friends and family. It was written as part of Google's 2007 Summer of Code lead by daniel g. siegel and mentored by Raphaël Slinckx, and has most of the classical photo booth features after a bare couple of months of development. Under the hood, Cheese uses GStreamer to apply fancy effects to photos and videos.
