Make your booth unique
Social Booth comes with it’s own set of user interface graphics, so you don’t really need to change a thing, but if you want to make your booth stand out, you can easily use your own backgrounds, buttons and audio prompts. This even makes using Social Booth with other languages a snap.

Silly but oh so fun
Animated GIFs are now more popular than ever. Give users the choice of uploading a still photo or Animated GIF, or skip the still photos completely and set up Social Booth as an Animated GIF booth. You can even create Animated GIFs with animated overlays! Users can upload and share their GIFs to Social Media and still print their still photos.
Thanks to Instagram, everybody loves filters and Social Booth has them. Let users choose from basic filters like: Color, Black & White, Sepia and a variety of Instagram inspired vintage filters. Or enable Advanced filters like: Cartoon, Sketch, Warhol, Night Vision, Thermography, Pixel Art, Comic Book, Mosaic and Cross Process. Enable or disable the filters that you like
Clients love data
Ask users a series of questions before they are allowed to share their photos. Social Booth will store this data along with email addresses, Facebook and Twitter usernames, as well as other valuable Facebook user info.
Combined with built in reports for social media usage, this kind of data collection provides an opportunity for your client to get insight into their users and even more value out of the activation.
A unique photo booth experience
Use video hosts at your photo booth with Social Booth. Use the built in host or create your own and define cuepoints to trigger the camera and external devices like LEDs and wind machines.
www.photoboof.com – In June Photoboof made a number of improvements to their current version of the software (3 releases in fact). These include a long laundry list of features most notably an improved layout editor, multiple background choices for green screen, singleton implementation (only 1 instance of Boof can run now) and a whole host of fixes and tweaks.
Here is a complete list of changes:
- New layout editor! Much easier to use than the old layout editor, and just as powerful. To use it, click File -> Layout Editor. Usage notes are here. And note that you can still use the old layout editor if you prefer by clicking File -> Layout Editor Classic.
- Added the ability to have two background choices when using greenscreen. To use, go to Preferences -> Greenscreen and set the greenscreen mode to “Background Chooser – 2 Choices”.
- Added the ability to shoot square pictures, for easier Instagram sharing. To use, open the new layout editor (File -> Layout Editor) and set the “camera type” to “square pictures”. Now your live view and all pictures will be square.
- Added a print chooser that lets users choose how many prints they’d like. To use it, go to File -> Configure Printing, and check the box at the bottom labelled “Ask how many prints”. It will now let them choose between 0 and 3 prints.
- Added the ability to build layouts using whatever test pictures you like, by clicking Test -> Test Layout With Chosen Pics.
- Added the ability to use any layout built with the new layout editor as a summary, meaning the last screen of the photobooth session. This gives a tremendous amount of control over what you show your users at the end of the session. You can show them the completed layout, or the layout with some additions (“and thanks for using the photobooth!”), etc. To use, go to Preferences -> Summary and select one of the new layouts, or build a new one using the new layout editor.
- Fixed an issue with rounding the edges on the live preview and trimming from the edges.
- Changed the webserver system for displaying the slideshow from remote computers, so antivirus programs should no longer get suspicious. You can also have it running on ports other than port 80 now.
- Added the ability to use physical buttons to emulate all touchscreen buttons. So now you can let users choose their own greenscreen backgrounds or color mode even without having a touchscreen. The gist is you go to Preferences -> Triggers and set the button action to “touchscreen-1” (to trigger the first touchscreen category), etc. More details here and here.
- Improvements to the OEM rebranding for resellers.
- Added the ability to use the background chooser for greenscreen backgrounds and still have the background images chosen sequentially. In other words, if someone chooses the second greenscreen category, you can have it use the images in the “button2” greenscreen folder sequentially instead of randomly now.
- Fixed an issue with the monitored folder and layouts that have less than 4 pictures.
- Many under the hood improvements.
- If you’re using the bulk Facebook uploader (in other words, uploading every session to a single Facebook account) and getting logged out of Facebook after a few hours, this should fix that. Note that if you’re using your own app ID you’ll need to go to Preferences -> Facebook and add your app’s “App Secret” code, which you get from facebook.com. More notes in the advanced tip here.
- Photoboof now checks for multiple instances, and warns if you’re trying to start more than one copy of it simultaneously. In other words, if someone accidentally clicks the shortcut twice, it will warn them about starting it multiple times.
- Restores the ability to set the paper orientation in Photoboof’s print configuration screen, as opposed to the printer driver.
- Fixes some issues with the 2nd column of pictures in the new layout editor if you’re using cropping or rotation. If you still experience any issues with the new layout editor, please email support so we can fix it.
- Fixes an issue with picture confirmations.
- If file paths are getting truncated in your installation (for example in Preferences -> Greenscreen), this update will fix that.
- Start screens. Option to replace on-screen button with separate screens to select photo layouts, photo effects, and screen overlays
- Cover screen options to display a start image or slideshow of photos. Use this for Sparkbooth DSLR to turn off LiveView in between session
- Update Facebook log in screen and uploader to Facebook’s 2.0 service
- Post to Facebook event page
- Photo layout search in photo layout settings to quickly find the layout you want to use
- Photo layout reset options to select next or random layout for next guest
- Twilio SMS can now send photo links uploaded to you Facebook, SmugMug, or Flickr accounts
- Send Photo Later can throttle uploads due for services with rate limits
- Send all photos to an account email. Great for websites with “post by email” photo galleries like SquareSpace or WordPress
- Reset Layout Editor customizations for a photo layout – removing any images and text objects
- Doubled limit of image and text customizations for Personal license users
- Added counters for Facebook, Twitter, emailing, SMS
- Submit emails to MailChimp from Send Photo Later queue
- Keyboard enabled prints count on print prompt screen using arrow keys
- Hide photo layouts
- Workaround for Twitter login service changes
- Click to update from notification
- Name and re-order counter by dragging and dropping in list
