Webcams may not get you the best quality photos but you sure can do a lot of fun things with them using apps. An example of such is PhotoTime, a free program from the Mac App store that lets you add live effects to your webcam and take cool and creative photos. The app lets you preview the effects in real-time and you can even adjust some of the effects by moving your mouse.
