Hi John,

as marketing of companies focusing on social media and engagement they simply freak out with animated gifs as a tool to generate audience for their brands and company.
I'd suggest that:
GIFs are handelnd like pictures. People can choose if the want a gif or printed picture. Or set up a gif only booth. Or give them a print and the possibility to receive as well a .gif and a .mp4 so they can directly share them on Facebook from their (mobile) devices.
And let the booth share them to the clients page.
As gifs cannot be directly shared on Facebook like pictures, your competioners use giphy or the amazon cloud to host them and share the link to Facebook.
What do you think?

    Do you have a schedule?
    One feature I have seen at an app for iPad is users can adjust the speed of the gif.
    You already implemented that as a global adjustment. But here you can adjust for each gif.

    Is there currently any option for the guest to see the GIF that was created? Or share it? If not, then it's a shame that it just gets created, saved, and buried in a save folder.

    If you provide the saved photos/layouts to give to your client
    via DVD/CD or Flash drive, you can also provide them the
    GIF files that they can see...
    Currently FB and other social media has issues showing GIF images.

    You can allow the guest to EMAIL the GIF file as long as you save them in the same folder/directory as the layouts where the Album can see/show the first image frame of the GIF for the guest to select and email.

    We (John) is working on making adjustments to be able to Upload to the social media sites... but at this time the GIF images will not play on the social sites.
