dslrBooth for Windows: v5.25 Update

Secondary Printer Support

You now have the option to use two printers with dslrBooth.

  • 2nd printer optionIn the template editor, you can set specific template(s) to print to the secondary printer. This can be useful if you allow your guests to choose their own template where one is a 4×6 and another is 2×6. You can set the 2×6 strips to print to the secondary printer that is setup for cutting. This is also useful if you want to allow your guests to print different size prints where each printer would be setup with a different paper size. You can choose the secondary printer in Settings > Printing then go to Template Editor to set the template to print to the secondary printer.
  • Alternatively, you can setup two printers for use in large events where dslrBooth will alternate printing across the the main and secondary printers for faster prints. Settings > Printing > Print to Both Printers.

GDPR and Our Apps

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into effect in the EU on May 25. This new legislation is all about giving you greater security, transparency, and control of your personal data online—a principle we are fully on board with.

The upcoming changes only impact those in the European Union, but we believe data security is important everywhere. In support of the new regulation, we have updated our Privacy Policy to address the new legislation.

Additionally, we’ve made the following changes to assist our European customers (also available to all other customers) to comply with GDPR standards:

  • Effective today, all our sites and services are only accessible over HTTPS to ensure that any information you transmit to and from our services or while on our website is encrypted and secure.
  • You can now download an entire album as well as reports of sharing activity from fotoShare Cloud (right to access). To enable download of an entire album, login to fotoshare Cloud, then go to Event > Settings > Enable Download Album. Album must be public. You’ll see a download icon on the album’s public page. Download album is disabled for private albums.
  • You can delete an entire album and all its shares from fotoShare Cloud (aka your right to be forgotten). Event > Select All > Trash Can. For shares: Event > Shares > Delete All.
  • For every new product and enhancement, we’re proactively applying the Privacy by Design principles.
  • We’re applying GDPR standards to all data not just EU personal data. That way, you will be well positioned with data protection regulatory frameworks around the world.
