I am currently running Sparkbooth PE 2.5.3

The computer is set to run sparkbooth on start up to go straight to full screen, this works well however the problem i have (and has been from first installing) is the splash screen for sparkbooth comes up saying loading, the program still functions behind it but it just stays there
If i exit the program and restart it will sometimes fix the problem and the splash screen goes away. but sometimes i have to repeat a few times.
Another issue is i want photos to upload to smug mug which works great, however unless i go into options and click log in it wont and just saves local. Is there a way to auto log-in ? again i want to take away the hassle for other users.

any help would be appreciated

    and take a look?

    It should have just activated the software after you logged it. It
    won't charge you $200. Can you send me a screenshot or the web page
    after you sign in?

    Yes, the settings dialog will pop up on start if you are in trial mode.

    I have attached a fix for the splash screen - it was related to
    SmugMug not automatically signing in.

    Install SparkboothPE_v2.5.3f.air if you need to activate Sparkbooth PE
