    System Requirements webcam. Windows (7 or later) or Mac OS 10.7 or later, Webcam, 4GB or more RAM, and i3 processor or better (2.0 Ghz or faster) recommended.

    If your photobooth is connected to the internet: Microsoft Support end for Windows 7 is on January 14, 2020.

    While you can continue to use your PC with Windows 7, without software and security updates, you'll be at greater risk for viruses and malware. Looking to the future is the safest way for you - Windows 10. On a new PC, Windows 10 is even better. Although you can install Windows 10 on your older device, Microsoft does not recommend it.

    Windows 7 or 10 works fine ... the computers sold today
    all come with Windows 10... if you are building one
    then install Windows 10

    We know about older versions of software no longer have support

    Typically, photo booth computers don't see much internet surfing (where you get viruses etc..) so keeping with a cheap/free license of Windows 7 is just fine for the foreseeable future.
