Hi, I have the earlier versions of Sparkbooth and looking at mirror booths and upgrading to the new version with mirror mode. It looks good but I have a question
When composing the shot there seems to be no on screen display. Yes I know there is a mirror unti and you can see yourself, but how does one know if they are in the photo (the camera view) or not until after the shot is taken
Am I missing a setting - I am testing this in my personal PC but it should make no difference

    Did you notice the Ready screen setting
    in Screen Settings Ctrl+2 (see attached)

    You can set the time from 0 to 60 seconds
    for the guest/user to Get into the shot.

    Thanks for the prompt reply Joe

    And in answer to your reply. NO

    I went through the menus several times and still could not find it. But the hot keys I did not use. Ohh the learning curve

    One last quick question

    I have the earlier version and one booth. The other two licenses are one a dead PC (gone and the one I use to edit the backgrounds etc.

    I know I can recover these but for now I just want to ask re upgrading to the new version.

    How do we do this. I installed the demo (TRY) version on my main PC and there is no automatic upgrade

    Consider me dumb (I am an electronic engineer but…)

    regards

    My new mirrorstyle booth is arriving tomorrow and I need to set it up. Oh the joy and fun

    But I would like to ask one question – do you have any Australian based companies that you work with to forward MMS (pics) from the booth

    VIvIal Connect on sends SMS, not MMS, internationally so that is no good
    Mogreet states that it is US based only

    Tivilo – I waiting on a response from them but I am not holding my breath

    I have spoken to many local Australian companies and they do not seem to be able to help on this matter so I am hoping you can shed some light

    regards

    No, I do not know... why not use email and send SMTP
    It is totally free using a Gmail email account...
    cell phones can check their email and see it there
    just as fast and Gmail works world wide...

    I agree Joe

    But I have been asked by a few potentials for txt and email

    Many phone users here do not have email on their phones. So they want text.

    I can possibly setup a dropbox style (if you support that) and text them the link ???

    Or I can send to their facebook (shudder!). or do I send on to mine and they log in.

    Just asking for advice

    regards

    Sparkbooth has no control over the countries supported by Twilio or Vival
    Connect. They are separate companies and services.

    To upload to Dropbox, go to Settings > Send to Account > select Dropbox
    from the list.

    To send photos to the guest's Facebook account, see

    Getting there

    Talking to Vivial now. They do what I need but it is not in your tutorials. I found it in the trial software though

    But I need to delete all my activations and reset the two I need

    I can recover my licenses and upgrade but need to know

    It is showing $103.00 to pay out. I assume then the upgrade is not free ??

    Can yu advise please

    regards

    Upgrades are not free... Updates are free
    an Upgrade is moving/changing/switching to a New version
    and there is a charge to Upgrade.
    The cost to Upgrade is a discounted amount compared to full purchase.
    Updates are changes within the version you have
    like fixes/adjustments/changes within that version
    that we have made to help/fix the software.
