Hi,

I think this software is fantastic, just as good as photoboof!

Is their any chance of seeing a live slideshow feature on a 2nd/3rd monitor?
I.e - When Guests are waiting to use the photo booth, their is a live slideshow of the photos that have been taken at that event?

    If you implement this, can we have it as an automated window that auto fills a second video source so it does not interfere with functionality of standard photo booth. A nice option would be choice of live vs pulling from directory.

    This seems more like something a 3rd party app should be able to do.

    You'd probably need the computer you're using to support dual monitors, and then run a 3rd party application to automatically pull images from a specified directory into an automatically rotating slideshow on the second monitor.

    I can't think of an app at the moment to do this, but I'm sure there's something if you look around.

    You can create a wireless network. Then, connect a 2nd computer along with the photobooth computer onto the network. On the 2nd computer you run a program like Faststone Image Viewer. Simply point this software to run a slideshow off the folder of pictures being taken by the photobooth computer.

    One more thought... Perhaps you can run that Faststone software on the same computer that the party booth software is on. I don't know. I haven't tried. If you do, and you have dual monitor's, you may be able to just run the Faststone on the 2nd monitor, and no wireless network would be required.

    Again, I have not tried or tested that.

    I have tried the FastStone Image Viewer Software which is FREE and can be downloaded here: http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

    If you download the software and select your folder you want to show pictures from and then press the 'S' button on your keyboard to bring up the slideshow mode. It will then automatically create a live, updating slideshow. I have tried it and I am using it now with my photo booth service hooked up to projector!

    I already had been using the FastStone. What I am looking for is 1 program since I want the same machine to be able to do the slide show at the same time as taking pictures to avoid setting up a wireless network at an event for projection.
