PT Booth users can now use Photo Booth Connected to create social media kiosks. PT Booth support has been added in v2.4.5, as well as some performance and stability improvements as well as an option to automatically close each photo after a user has uploaded.
One of the most requested features for Social Booth has been Green Screen removal, and it’s now here! If you shoot on green screen, just drop a handful of backgrounds into a folder and the user will automatically have the option to choose which background they want to use for their photo. You can even let them choose a different background for each shot. These green scree shots are also filterable and usable with the Animated Gif Mode!
Two other popular requests have been filled: Triggers and Timeouts. The addition of triggers opens the door for Social Booth to be used in a variety of commercial situations. You can now disable the touch to start screen and have Social Booth wait for a key press. This key can be sent from a physical button, coin acceptor, bill validator, or credit card swipe. You can also have it wait for a credits.txt file if your hardware supports that.
The timeout feature can be used to limit the amount of time the user has to spend on the upload screen. This way if they start to linger, or even walk away without hitting the done button, the software will reset.
Some professional audio prompts have also been added replacing my lovely voice overs.

The rumors are true, we’ve been very busy working on both an iPad and an Android version of Photo Booth Connected, and we’re nearly ready. But in the meantime, some ingenious users have pointed out that you can already run PBC on an iPad by using a Remote Desktop app like Splash Top. Simply run PBC on a laptop with the screen resolution set the the same thing as your iPad and use Splash Top to show the content of the laptop on the iPad. Very clever. It certainly won’t take the place of a native app, but if you just can’t wait, give it a try. As we get closer to launch, current PBC owners will soon have priority access to the iPad and Android Beta and will also get a special discount on the new version, so if you think you’ll be using both the Windows and the iOS/Android version, consider jumping on board now.
Introducing a new deal on the best combination of Photo Booth Software + Social Media Kiosk Software, Social Booth and Photo Booth Connected. For a limited time, when you buy either product, you’ll receive a coupon for $100 off the other. Think of it as $50 off each program, or $100 off of one. Either way, you’ll get 2 machine licenses of each program, so that’s 2 photo booths and 2 upload stations for under $500. Social Booth and Photo Booth Connected integrate perfectly. Just have PBC watch the output folders of Social Booth and you’ll have the option of uploading to social media right at the booth as well as at separate kiosks or tablets.
