You now have the option to use two printers with dslrBooth.
In 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.
Watermark Captured Photos
You can now place your own watermark, logo or overlay on the photos captured during a session. The overlay gets added above the entire captured photo.

Select an effect options and buttons are now raised higher on the screen for vertical booths.

Save Settings Per Event
You can now pre-configure each of your events in dslrBooth with different settings. This will make it easy to run multiple events on a busy weekend or to have different presets for your booths that you can switch to quickly. You can do this from the Event dropdown in the main menu. When creating a new event, you can copy its settings from an existing event as well.
Re-sort Template Dropdown
Sort template dropdown by date modified or alphabetically.
Hide Retake/Cancel Button
You have the option to hide the retake/cancel button. This is useful if you accept payment for your booths using a coin or credit card acceptor or if you simply don’t want guests to have the option to retake photos. Settings > Display > Capture Screen.
Sending SMS to Other Countries
You can now send SMS messages to countries different than your Twilio From number. This is useful if you want to send from a different country than where your guests are located and is useful for countries that don’t have SMS sending numbers yet. Add the country code for your country in Settings > Sharing > SMS. The Country Code will get prepended to your guests number in the background so they don’t have to enter it in.
Mirror Booth Display Improvements
The Start Screen icons and Done button will automatically be raised to the upper third of the screen when using vertical screens such as those used for mirror booths. Also, when using multiple templates with a vertical screen, the capture button is moved to the right side.
