Even when sparkbooth is at full screen, I still get on the edge
of the screen the little keyboard hidden. So, I just touch that
specific area (users don't even see it) and the touchscreen
keyboard pops out.. Is that what you wanted to know??
ps. I use the mouse and the usual phisical keyboard to set
everything up. It is just more simple and quicker.. ONly when
things are ready to go, I press the full screen and hide the mouse
and keyboard... Is this what you wanted to know??
Yes, thanks, I was just wondering as I have not invested in a
touchscreen yet? Which one do you use/recommend?
I have also been looking into an all-in-one PC but have not
decided yet, I would like to have an external monitor setup to be
running the photos in a slide show as well as have another monitor
sitting on a table near the booth to help guests fill in their
email address, etc. a little quicker as I've found when there is a
line waiting and people are messing around it can slow things down
I did. The problem with that, is that it is good if I have a
separeted computer running on the booth.
What I want to be able to do is:
1) guests take pictures as usual
2) sometimes, one guest or the bride will want some of the pictures
re-printed. I want to go to kiosk mode, but don't want to mess in
the settings.. I would have a button to enter that mode that would
be passed protected. That way, only I can reprint the pictures. I
need this in order to keep guets from printing a lot of pictures of
them and other guests.. Only I could repint pictures.. As I use a
touchscreen, the passwd would be great to do it quickly and without
people understanding what the passwd is..
Is there a way to enable a payment in the kiosk mode or are you
working towards that? i.e. users come back and want to pay for a
photo or to print a duplicate photo, they find it on the kiosk and
click on it and it asks them for payment (paypal, credit card, or
even cash...there are so many credit card processors now this
should be quick to implement, like intuit gopayment, square,
paypal, etc). You can add a simple "Pay Now" button from paypal
very easily. Or a mobile version of SB may be what's needed next as
the kiosk, so you pick your photo and slide your card in any of the
3 or so mobile payment processors that you choose.
Think of it like this, you put your booth in an event for free
and people pay for their photos only if they want to, you get a
couple hundred people paying you $1-$5 per print and you come out
ahead. I've been doing it the old fashioned way and just asking for
cash and sometimes get almost as much out of reprints than the
fixed rental cost.
My printing costs are so low for photos now, I'm thinking of not
having any rental fees for some events and print out all photos
that are taken in the booth and then hanging them out like they do
on cruise ship to temp you to buy them (spontaneous purchase).
Please consider it, now that you have the kiosk mode you are
almost already there.
