Hi, I have been looking at Sparkbooth and I am wondering if it is possible to use a mixture of different layouts? Is it possible to have the user select if they want either a landscape or portrait layout? I can only seem to have one or the other when I am trying it out in the demo. I plan to use the camera in landscape and use a cropped image for the portrait if possible.
Thanks, Ross

    Yes you can as long as its a 2x6 portrait or landscape but if you have a printer that cut automatic you cant go from 2x6 cut to 4x6

    We now have the capability for you to set up 2 printers on the same PC one prints 2x6 cuts and the other prints 4x6 no cut

    You can create different layouts for the guest/user to select from
    using the "Guest Selection" in Photo Booth Settings.
    See attached
    You will notice there are Portrait Strips and Landscape Strips
    that your printer can cut (2) 2X6 strips...
    Or you can create full 4X6 layouts in both Portrait and Landscape
    style and the guest can select from each of them.

    NOTE: You will need to make sure the the only layouts you want
    the guest to select from is set as Favorite (Red Heart) ...
    all layouts that are set as Favorites will be shown,
    so make sure you Uncheck all the red heart layouts that you do not want to use.

    If you are planning to create layouts with different photo box styles
    (Square/Wide/Portrait) that to can be done but you will also need
    to Uncheck the "Select by current photo size" in Photo Layouts
    Lightning Bolt ( see attached ) and ONLY have FULL layouts set
    as Favorites so the printer only cuts 4X6 prints

    Hi All, Thank you for your responses. It was the "Select by current photo size" that I wanted, so thank you for the pointers on that. Everything else on the software seems to do everything I need so will be looking to make a purchase soon. Thanks again!
