I followed the instructions to configure the kiosk in a second screen, I prefer the option of the folder in dropbox and it works perfectly, but my question is, how do I send the impression from the kiosk? should the computer be networked equally and share the printer?

    Photo kiosk only browses photos file, not prints - if that is what
    you mean. You can print a photo from photo kiosk.

    If you have the main photo booth computer set to save the photos in a Dropbox, then you will need to set the kiosk computer to also connect to the same location in Dropbox.

    Thank you for your reply, but all this means that I must have two printers?
    one for each PC? In the kiosk I do not see the option to print with the
    network shared printer. If so, the kiosk does not make sense if it can not
    be printed on the same printer.

    Thank you

    The Kiosk ONLY watches a folder on the main computer
    and if you want the Kiosk computer to PRINT, it will need
    to have a printer connected. It does not sent commands to the main computer.

    Now if your printer and Kiosk computer can be set to Network (wireless) you might be able to use the same computer as the photo booth computer. Bur REMEMBER, the photo booth computer will be in control sending prints during sessions and this is the reason people set up a separate Kiosk for the reason of not tying up the photo booth computer.

    The main pc prints correctly, the folder and the printer are in network
    with the PC kiosk, I can see the printer in network from the pc kiosk. But
    the kiosk printing configuration does not allow choosing a network printer.
    I think the main function of the kiosk is to print the photos again, so I
    hope we find a solution.

    Thank you

    "the kiosk printing configuration does not allow choosing a network printer"

    I just opened Sparkbooth 5 in kiosk mode and ALL I have is networked printers (here at work) and they all showed up as available devices and I was able to print.
    It sounds like you may not have the correct printer drivers installed in the kiosk machine.

    I can confirm what Rob says. From the kiosk, I can also print without difficulty on my set up as a network printer DNP DS620.
