Mirror Booth

I recently started checking out the Mirror Booth feature of the 6th version and I noticed that there is only 1 Photo Layout. I was hoping for a Portrait Layout with 2 or 3 shots per print. Will there be more layout in the near future? I have a gig in Nov and It would be a waste to provide 1 shot per print.

Thanks.

    ??? It appears you did not LOOK in the Photo Layouts
    dropdown list for each of the layout styles (Square / Wide / Portrait)
    that has many pre designed layouts
    Plus you can create your own layouts in the Layout editor...

    Go to Settings > Photo Layout to select or create any layout you want in
    mirror booth mode. If you select or create a new layout, you can enable the
    ability to draw on a layout. See

    @John Wu - Thanks for the info. I proceeded with your guide. Also, i noticed when I was creating a new mirror booth layout and I added the color selection, red. white, blue, green, after I press close and go back to edit it again, the color selection colors are different from the ones I chose earlier.

    My color selection: IMG_20181015_021646.JPG

    Can you export the layout with your color selections? The export button is
    in the toolbar

    Just a side note: I made a duplicate of a portrait layout and added the drawing option, then added the emoji and color selection. I closed the layout and it saved the rest but after doing some testing and towards the part where i sign, thats when i noticed the colors are different. i went back to edit multiple times the color selection and still the same.

    Here is the layout. I created from scratch and copied the photo size and added the drawing, emoji, color options.

    The "Before" layout/picture, i had exported the file before i pressed "close".
    The "After" layout/picture, i went in to edit and see the results and changes.
    Notice on the color selection that after the black color those are not my choices.
    Not sure if its a bug or im doing something wrong or different.

    The layout are in 7zip. Thanks for the help.

    I think I found the issue here. If you choose a custom color, it will reset to a "default color" . If you let it keep the colors it auto chooses, it will keep those.
    I hope this makes sense.

    I will keep testing and try out different layouts. Also, will you be able to release the fix for Nikon since I use this camera as backup.

    Thanks.

    Also, would it be possible to use below the recommended specs for Kiosk mode?

    We do not recommend using a computer that doesn't meet the system requirements that we have set. The only way for you to know if it would be possible to use below the recommended spec for kiosk mode is to try it... we can not be responsible if it crashes during an event, that would be your choice.

    I have heard others on the internet photo booth forums stating that they have do ne that and no issues... but I would not personally do it. The main part of a photo booth that runs the entire booth is the computer, I do not understand why people will spend $600-$700 on a Flash unit but think they can get away with using a $200-$300 computer (???)

    @Joe Connell - I think its because the function of the kiosk mode is very simple. Since its design is to provide browsing, printing etc vs the other mode. My plan is to use two laptops or pcs, one for the mirror booth function then hard wired to the 2nd laptop for others to view only as a slideshow, no printing etc.

    I briefly tested a simple Windows 7, 2.0ghz Celeron mini-computer as a kiosk and it had zero problems running Sparkbooth in kiosk mode.

    @ Thanks Rob. I remember when i was going thru different software that I ran into a Breeze PhotoBooth and they had a viewer/kiosk app separate from the actual booth software, almost like a supplement which was great cuz then it lowers the recommended hardware.

    I am actually looking at these i5 mini pcs just as a standalone viewer. I havent tried using the other picture viewer because I really want the program to refresh when new pictures are added and i have seen that on kiosk mode and I'm impressed.
