A three-second countdown allows the player to time their emotion so that it can be displayed on the TPC. The player's joke book will appear on the bottom screen, if available. If the player holds down the "R" button, the photo will be printed in sepia tone, and if the player holds down the "L" button, the photo will be printed in grayscale. After a picture is taken, the player may retake the photo as many times as desired for free before leaving the booth.
The Photo Booth can only be accessed when the player is not in multiplayer mode: that is, they are not connected to a network. The player is unable to have their TPC photo taken otherwise, and the green light above the booth turns red.
