dslrBooth for Windows v6.36

Touchless Support

dslrBooth now allows your guests to remotely control the entire photo booth experience through their phones without touching the booth screen. This is useful for guests who would prefer not to touch the booth screen. It also opens the door to new possibilities of running dslrBooth on a monitor that does not support touch such as larger TVs, projectors as well as running dslrBooth without a guest-facing display.

 

When a guest arrives, dslrBooth displays a QR Code. The guest can scan the QR code using their camera’s phone app. The camera will read the QR Code and display the start screen on the phone. The guest can choose their session type such as photo, GIF, boomerang or video. They can also choose their green screen backgrounds, templates and effects from the phone. The guest will also be able to accept the disclaimer and fill out the survey on the phone. At the end of the session, the sharing options will appear on the phone. The guest can choose from email, sms, or print options. Once complete, dslrBooth will display a new QR code for the next guest to begin their session.

You turn turn on/off this feature under Settings, Display, Start Screen, Guest QR Code. This features requires internet access.

Custom Filters with LUTs

In addition to the built-in effects, dslrBooth for Windows now allows you to create your own effects and apply them to photos, GIFs, boomerangs and videos. This allows you to give a custom look for your events where you can change colors, brightness, and contrast.

Custom effects use a common format called LUTs that can be created in Adobe Photoshop and many other apps or downloaded from the internet then they can be imported into dslrBooth under Settings, Filters.

Guests will be able to choose from the filters selected or set filters to automatically be applied. Filters are applied to all sessions types and filter selection will be available before sessions start. More information on our support site.

We have also replaced the built-in black/white filter with a much improved version.
