Breeze Booth for iPad 3.4.1 – AI image generation

Breeze Booth for iPad 3.4.1. was released today, linking AI image generation services to the power of Breeze Booth for iPad’s photo booth app.

To create AI  images of your guests use Breeze Booth for iPad’s new post processing feature with a third party AI generation service*

This release also includes an easy to use survey builder.

Create AI effects

Booth 3.4.1’s new  post processing option supports third party image processing, making it possible to create, print and share AI generated images of guests at events.

*Third party services adding AI effects to images

We Fly Kites and Printaparty are currently building AI Image generation services designed to integrate with Breeze Booth for iPad.

Steve Bliesner and Faisal Achmad have kindly let me try pre-release versions of both. See the results below:

Booth’s new survey builder is a fast and simple way to build custom surveys. The following screenshots show how to build a survey with an age gate, autoemail and choice of cartoon style:

The survey builder can include check boxes, radio buttons and text, optional or mandatory fields. To automatically email my photo select autoemail:

Tip: Choose meaningful field names for your surveys.

Survey tokens

Special survey tokens are created which can be used in many ways, including

  • separating output into different folders
  • print captions
  • using radio buttons to offer a choice of effect (here Manga, Pop or basic cartoon) by selecting different post processing URLs

AI Image generation with Breeze / PBX London 2023 Round Up

The first European Photo Booth Expo (PBX) in London was a great success last week, with attendees flying in from from Australia, Canada, the USA, and South America, across Europe and the UK.

The hot topic at the show was undoubtedly integrating AI image generation with photo booths.

AI Image generation with Breeze

The next release of Breeze Booth for iPad includes the ability to post process photos using AI or PhotoShop Droplets using third party services such as Stability AI.

Similar AI Image processing can already be applied using post processing and third party processing in DSLR Remote Pro.

  • Breeze Booth AI Image processing support includes both text to image and image to image processing.
  • Text to Image AI allows the background to be switched in repsonse to text chosen in advance or entered during survey questions.
  • Image to Image AI changes photos in response to a text prompt. Again text can be chosen in advance or entered during survey questions.

There was frequent laughter as guests saw themselves age in Steve’s AI demo.

Audio Booth Integration

Steve’s integration of a phone for audio and video recordings with Breeze Booth for iPad was also a huge hit at the Breeze stand.

Guests picked up the handset to record an audio or video message for their mother, or took a selfie. Recordings/photos were emailed directly to Mum.

Use the same concept at weddings to record messages for bride and groom.

Steve Bliesner: My rules for running a successful event business

Tuesday morning  08:30

Keep things simple. Be early, but not too early (and definitely dont be late). Make friends. Look out for each other. Learn your tools and RTFM. Experience first. Money second. The end.

Who’s Steve?

Breeze Ambassador Steve Bliesner is the founder and Creative Director of Australian based companies: The Photo Booth Guys and At the Beep. With nearly 15 years experience in the Photo Booth, and Events Industry, and regarded as an “out of the box” thinker…  Steve is probably now considered to be a Dinosaur, who’s probably run out of fresh ideas. But this old T-Rex somehow managed to have some of his best years in business through-out the pandemic, and might just have something worth listening to.

Chris, Sue and Steve also look forward to welcoming you to the Breeze PBX trade show stand on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.  The Breeze  stand is right at the entrance.

Chris’ comments on the new cameras

The Canon EOS R100 is the best value camera for camera arrays. If you need better image quality from a full frame camera the Canon EOS R8 offers the best value.

The Canon EOS R50 is fine for product photography, but not suitable for camera arrays because it does not have a remote release socket.

Quick Tips – Print Preview Issues

A couple of quick tips for beginners using the Print Preview screen in their booth.

This post has been written for Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows) aka DSLR Remote Pro, but also applies to Webcam Photobooth.

  • New users sometimes ask why the print preview shows a photo or strip in the wrong orientation, while the printed output is fine.
  • Another issue which occurs with the print preview is that the print covers all or part of the buttons.

Print Preview in wrong rotation

This is most often seen with DNP 4×6 media after running the Photobooth Setup Wizard:

Breeze DSLR Remote Pro Print Preview screenshot with double strip in wrong rotation
Breeze Print Preview double strip before fixing (Breeze DSLR Remote Pro)
Breeze DSLR Remote Pro Print Preview screenshot showing incorrect rotation
Breeze Print Preview single photo before fixing (Breeze DSLR Remote Pro)

Why does this happen?

DNP printers swap portrait and landcape when you print 4×6 inch (100 x 150 mm) prints.

This has no effect on the physical prints, but makes Print Preview screens look strange.

How to fix:

  1. Open the Print Layout Editor
  2. Click on Printer Setup
  3. Swap Orientation from Portrait to Landscape ( or Landscape to Portrait)
  4. Click on Preset Layouts
  5. Select your chosen layout – here Double Strip of 4
  6. Check Print Layout
  7. Check Print Preview

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next most common issue reported for in print previews is that the print partly covers the buttons.

Print Preview image overlaps the touchscreen buttons

Breeze DSLR Remote Pro Print Preview screenshot with print partly covering buttons

This problem usually happens when buttons are placed at the bottom of the screen and the print is in portrait (vertical).

How to fix:

Open the touchscreen actions window for confirm_printing screen and reduce the size of the print preview image:

Adjusting the print preview images in the Touchscreen actions window

If you are new to touchscreen actions, read the tutorial here

Open confirm_printing.jpg in touchscreen actions, and click on Print preview area

Drag and drop the Print Preview area until the buttons are no longer hidden:

Touchscreen action print area no longer covers buttons

Save your changes as you leave the touchscreen actions window,  and run a session to check everything works as expected.

Remember to close DSLR Remote Pro when you finish, to save your changes.

Buying upgrades for Breeze licenses

Breeze Windows apps all include one year’s free upgrades from the date your license is issued. When this year ends, you can keep using the license or buy an upgrade to the latest release using the Buy.. buttons on the website Upgrades page  here
We have automated the process of issuing upgrade licenses – generally you should receive your new registration in minutes instead of hours, providing
  • existing name and code are entered correctly
  • same email address is used as the original license
  • comment field is empty
  • the existing license is still valid – ie has not already been upgraded, refunded, cancelled etc
There are a few exceptions & Multi-Camera orders are always processed manually.
Processed manually means we check the order before issuing the new registration. This is almost always done within 12 hours of your payment being accepted. Occasionally at weekends and UK Public Holidays it takes a little longer. Very occasionally we take a break at a weekend or Public Holiday and you may might have to wait until the next business day to receive the new registration.
