The Photo Booth Solutions Blog
With the addition of a 2nd watch folder in 2.3, many users are now monitoring for both the strips and the individual shots to display in the upload station gallery. In Breeze, this means watching both the output directory as well as the prints sub directory. In Social Booth this means watching both the originals directory as well as the customized directory. Either way, this is resulting in much larger files having to be transferred over the network and more of them, too. PBC 2.3.3 has been optimized to help handle larger file transfers in quicker succession as well as improving the speed that photos appear in the gallery over slower networks and hotspots.
Photo Booth Connected‘s social media kiosk just got a bit more social with the addition of Pinterest. You probably already know that brides love Pinterest. Now they will love being able to pin their photo booth photos to their favorite board right at their event. Pinterest is now another option to share photos on the upload station along with Email, Facebook, Twitter and SMS.
If you’ve ever seen PhotoMingle™ or TapSnap™, they are very cool products. But did you know that you can create your own version of PhotoMingle and TapSnap using Sketch Booth? Sketch Booth is a software only alternative that lets you draw on the screen and drag & drop virtual props and stickers, but without the expensive franchise fees associated with those other guys. It also is a full featured photo booth software with Photos, Videos, Filters, Printing and Social Media uploads, right at the booth. You can use your own equipment, but there’s also several hardware manufactures bundling Sketch Booth for people who want a more turn-key solution. It’s priced “aspirationally”, but compared to buying into one of the franchises, it’s still a bargain. Check out this video and contact us for more information and a walk through demo.
BYO Booth was recently featured in an article on Geek Sugar, signing the praises of InstaPrinters at weddings. It shows some nice photos of very creative devices that some BYO customers have come up with.
