I have sparkbooth 6 and wanted to purchase a template I saw online that said it works with the photo booth software sparkbooth commercial. Is this compatible with sparkbooth 6?

    It might be helpful if you provided a link to the template.

    YES I am sure all layout templates that you can buy
    on line are compatible but you will need to create
    a NEW layout using the Paper size 6X4 DNP
    because all the layouts sold on line are created
    with a larger size (called bleed over) and Sparkbooth
    uses (as default) the size that is the actual size of a 4X6 layout @ 300 DPI

    If you have ANY issues with the layout...
    post it here and I will be able to help you

    Is there a way to get that layout for free?

    So you don't want to spend $30, and steal from the maker of the template?

    Sorry no... the one I have looks like that one but is not the exact same layout. PLUS if I had the original layout, when you purchase layouts you agree to not Sell/Give away/ or trade layouts that you purchase.

    Mike Bendor creates a lot of layouts and sells them.
    Anyone here who would purchase a layout and break the agreement by giving it away would be violating that agreement. I personally will not help people who would do that. Sorry

    or is there a reasonable sparkbooth template service to simplify the
    process and cost?

    The software has a layout creator built in
    you only need to add the graphics and images
    that you want to use for your layout.

    I would be happy to show you how easy it is to do
    in Skype where I can share my screen and we can talk.

    This way you learn how to do it

    That seems cool but my customer wanted a specific Great Gatsby themed
    background template. Paying $29.00 for 1 template just seems like an
    amateur move.

    No not amateur at all, 100's if not 1,000's
    of photo booth people use Profession layouts
    purchased from that web site...

    Just cover your cost with your price to rent your booth.

    We are always here to help when needed.

    If I order it and make it on my desktop using Sparkbooth 6 am I able to
    save and transfer it to another computer using sparkbooth 4, 5 or 6? Do I
    need to purchase the layout editor as well?

  15. Support Staff 15 Posted by John Wu on 14 Dec, 2018 12:30 AM

    Layout editor is built into Sparkbooth 6. See
    http://help.sparkbooth.com/kb/getting-started/photo-layout-editor

    You can export the layout using the export button in the toolbar of the
    editor to transfer it to another install.

    The layout came with files... There is a Background image
    and possibly an overlay image..

    Start by opening the Sparkbooth software in Settings and
    go to the Photo Layout page...
    Next click the Layout Creator icon (square with pencil - above lightning bolt icon)
    check to make sure the layout is set up for the WIDE photo boxes
    (near top left - the icon that has the wide looking box)
    In the layout creator top left click the icon New layout
    and in the window that opens - Name it something "Gatsby"
    Next in the Paper size click the drop down and scroll down
    to the 6X4 DNP and select it.

    Click ok and you should have a portrait blank layout.

    Top right area you add the Background image with the paper clip
    it will fill the background of the blank layout...

    This can all seem difficult...
    We should Skype and you will see how easy it really is
    my Skype email is ccuvideo @ gmail . com (no spaces)

    I will show you...
    or type more in my next reply.

    BTW Skype is free to use computer to computer

    ...so I did not get a Skype message to connect

    Next step is adding the overlay image
    DO NOT add the Overlay image from the top right
    (under where you add the Background image)
    add it using the Add image icon top center

    This way you can place the photo boxes
    over the overlay window and send each photo box
    BACK (behind the overlay)

    Next add the first photo box and size it to fit
    the size of the top overlay window
    when you add another photo box, it will be
    the same size so all you need to do is
    place it over the next window
    (Repeat for the 3rd photo box)

    Now click on photo box 1 and click the
    down arrow icon (on right side) to send
    the photo box behind the overlay image.

    Now you can add your Text (T icon) and
    make it any size/color/font you want.

    Let me know if you need any more help or have more questions.

    If we Skype, you will be able to watch how it is done
    and we can talk and review how easy it really is.

    Let me know...

    How do I add a new font to the Sparkbooth layout editor?

    We are now connected in Skype. When you are online today
    you will see my reply about adding Fonts...
    All software uses the Fonts that are on the computer. To add a new font to the computer, you would download it to the Fonts folder and install it..

    Call me in Skype and we can talk and I can show you how to get this Gatsby layout all set up and how easy it is to add the Fonts that came with the layout.

    I will be available after 11:30am ET (I am in Michigan)
