dslrBooth Success Story: SD Photo Booth in San Diego, California

SD Photo Booth, based in San Diego, California, started using dslrBooth in 2012. They first came across the software at the Photo Plus convention and soon after downloaded dslrBooth’s free trial. SD Photo Booth uses dslrBooth mostly at corporate activations to help spread brand awareness for the company that hired the booth. The customization of the templates, start screen and other functions allow for branding from the time the guests step into the booth to when they receive their print.

Some of SD Photo Booth’s favorite features include the surveys, automatic Facebook page uploads, GIFS and boomerangs. While those features are some of their favorites, what they find the most useful is the template editor. SD Photo Booth chose the software due to its ease of use and the simplicity in teaching it to their other staff members. Currently SD Photo Booth has a total of 5 booths in use.
