Hello. I currently use your software (DSLR) with laptop. But I am looking to add a 2nd booth but I want to use ONLY an IPAD and use only the Ipad camera. Is this possible with this software?

    Sorry, Sparkbooth only runs on Windows and Mac computers. Take a look at
    the Surface Pro https://amzn.to/2VEsJQN or Surface Book
    https://amzn.to/2w9xqTz if you want to run it on a tablet.

    Does that Surface have a front camera? and is yes, is that camera good for
    a photo booth?

    The reason I was saying Ipad is because their cameras are good.??

    Surface does have a front facing camera, but we still recommend using a
    Logitech webcam

    I was using a Logitech webcam before I went DSLR and I was having
    issues having enough light and getting dark pictures, if I do go that way,
    what do you recommend to fix that issue?

    Start with adding light so the camera can make adjustments,
    add a flash for the camera to add additional light when the photo is taken

    Ok, how do I attach an external flash to a tablet/ipad? so that it goes off
    when it takes the picture? and do you have a flash that you recommend?

    I appreciate your answers....

    You can not use a webcam with a flash...
    only with a DSLR camera.

    Ok, so how do I solve the problem that I was having before ( with webcam )
    where the pics did not have enough light, they were coming out dark?

    Ok with a webcam you don't require a flash, the webcam does not work with a flash it records the picture from the live feed video in your webcam you do need external light and we recommend a light color background curtain here is an example of my open booth and pictures of our event.

    Good color balance requires proper light (external) and a light color curtain webcam does not react well to dark backgrounds.

    Understand, in order to take good photos, you need LIGHT...
    a DSLR camera will have a flash built in ...
    webcams need lighting set up to provide enough light
    to get good photos. I have been using a webcam
    for over 8 years and it needs a light to be on the area
    where the guest/user(s) will be standing.

    Attached are some sample photos and a photo of my booth with the light I use.

    Hello,

    With Sparkbooth, can I have it sending all pictures to cell phones only,
    without prints?

    You can use the Send Photo Later feature to queue photos to send later when
    you do have an internet connection
