Adding a quick consent screen to your booth

Did you know that there are several ways to add a simple consent screen or disclaimer to DLSR Remote Pro?

Data is usally collected using a survey. However there are simpler ways to ensure guests agree to disclaimers or terms and conditions at the start.  This post runs  through three alternatives:

  • Add a disclaimer to the Welcome/standby screen
  • Add a disclaimer to the Ready screen (with optional link to detailed T&C)
  • Use a profile menu screen for the disclaimer

Note: All three methods provide a gate guests pass by answering one question. In the worked examples I use But first.. May we share your photos online. Replace this  with any question which suits your purpose.

When you need guests to answer several questions, record or analyze their responses, use a survey instead.

Use the welcome/standby screen

To query consent at the standby screen,:

  • Check Auto standby in Advanced settings
  • Add a suitable  graphic called welcome.jpg to the PhotoboothImages folder
  • Add the touchscreen action to switch from standby to your Ready screen

Check Auto standby

Auto standby returns the booth to the Welcome screen instead of the Ready screen at the end of each session.

Start DSLR Remote Pro and click on Advanced Settings. Check Auto standby and save your changes.

Checking Auto standby in Breeze DSLR Remote Pro

Add your welcome.jpg

Make your graphic a jpg image which is the same size as your screen (in pixels). Call the graphic requesting consent to use the photos welcome.jpg and add it to your PhotoboothImages folder.

To attract attention, you can also animate the screen.  How to animate screens.

Add the touchscreen action

Add the touchscreen action Switch from standby to ready  to welcome.jpg

Using touch screen actions

Use the Ready screen ready.jpg

You can ask the same question on the ready screen instead of the standby screen.

You can also link from the ready screen to Information pages providing detailed term and conditions.

Guests clicking Yes! starts the countdown. Guests choosing No are returned to the standby screen. Guests clicking Maybe are shown information screen(s).

In the example above, ready.jpg is white with  Yes, No and Maybe buttons. (Maybe is optional and links to information screens.)

ready_overlay.png provides the question text on a transparent background so that it shows in front of the live view.

Make sure both ready.jpg and ready_overlay.jpg are the same size in pixels as the screen.

You may prefer to switch off live view in the ready screen by checking Disable live view in ready screen in Live View Settings.

Add the touchscreen actions

You need to add three touchscreen actions to the ready screen.

  1. Add action Photo start to the Yes! button
  2. Add action Switch from ready screen to standby to the No button
  3. Add action Photo info open to the Maybe button
Adding touchscreen actions to Breeze DSLR Remote Pro ready screen

Learn how to add information screens here

Use a profile menu

This option may be preferred by advanced users comfortable with profiles. If you are not familiar with profiles, use  one of the approaches above.

Build a menu profile asking May we share your photos… ?


  • Yes/accept to take the guest to the ready screen of a second profile.
  • No/reject returns the guest to standby using the Switch from ready to standby action
  • Maybe takes the guest to information screen(s) as above

Before you leave…

Check everything works and save your changes before you finish.

Breeze DSLR Remote Pro & Photo Booth Expo

DSLR Remote Pro release

DSLR Remote Pro was released today, March 9th. This is a minor update, fixing issues in DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 where touchscreen keyboards converted all input to upper case and the program could crash when using SHIFT+Ctrl+left click to save the keyboard settings.

Photo Booth Expo 2023

2023 was our busiest Expo for years. Breeze, EventKite and Everybooth shared a stand showcasing Breeze for Windows and Breeze for iPad running on Everybooth’s lovely wooden booths. Images were uploaded to EventKite’s new  microsite and gallery.

Visitors loved  the black and white video and photos taken by DLSR Remote Pro, and were astonished by the power and speed of Breeze for iPad 3.3.

Breeze for iPads’ ability to offer built in background removal  with live view for both video and photos was a hit, as was the ability to pair the iPad with Canons’ mirrorless and DSLR cameras.

Sharp eyed visitors may have noticed that overlays on both the DSLR Remote Pro and Breeze for iPad images vary, sharing prime position between the three businesses on the stand. Both Breeze for iPad and DSLR Remote Pro include the ability to randomly vary layouts.

Replacing a computer running DSLR Remote Pro

Is it time to replace the computer you use to run DSLR Remote Pro?

Check out these two guides before you start

Choosing a computer for your booth

Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows) aka DSLR Remote Pro is very efficient, and often runs well on lowered powered devices than apps from other suppliers.

Before getting out your wallet, think about the ways your booth will be used, because this will affect the spec and cost of the computer you need.

  • Do you simply shoot still photos for social events?
  • Will you shoot burst GIFs or video?
  • What about about slow mo and video FX?
  • Will you use filters, background removal or other effects?
  • Do you require lightening fast results, or is a short delay before viewing the images unimportant?

When you are clear about the the services you will offer, Choosing the right computer for your booth helps you find the computer spec which meets your needs.

Making the move

Once you have obtained your new computer, you need to move DSLR Remote Pro from your old machine to the replacement.

Moving Breeze DSLR Remote Pro to a new computer will guide you through this process.

Chris and I had a blast in Las Vegas at Booth Mastermind and Photo Booth Expo. It was great to catch up with many of you after three years away.

We are taking a vacation driving part of the Pacific Coast Highway before heading back to the UK on Friday.

We have fallen in love with the laid back sea otters

Many of the Californian state parks along Pacific Coast Highway are closed after the recent storms, but we managed to see the awesome redwoods at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. Learning more about these giants was a reminder of National Geographic’s award winning Climbing Redwood Giants (which just happened to use Breeze Multi-Camera)

Once we get home Chris will put the final touches to Breeze Booth for iPad 3.3, which we previewed on the stand at PBX, then move on to the next release of Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows).

Breeze DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 released

Breeze Booth (DSLR+Windows) aka DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 was released today, February 14th.

This release adds support for Canon’s fabulous new EOS R6 Mark II camera, introduces a watermark over prints displayed in the print confirmation and sharing screens, and the ability to retry failed uploads.

EOS R6 Mark II support

The mirror-less EOS R6 Mark II is a superb camera for high end photo booth operators, especially those offering slow motion and video. The  R6 Mark II comes with

  • 180 frames/second or 120 frames/second slow motion at 1080p
  • Center hotshoe contact allowing external flash to be triggered
  • Class leading face and eye detect autofocus

DSLR Remote Pro already supports Canon’s EOS R10, R7, R6, R5, R and RP models, several M series cameras, and almost all Canon DSLRs.

Watermark on screen copy of prints

We’re getting a lot of interest in using DSLR Remote Pro for pay to print and pay to share booths at fixed installations.

To discourage guests from taking a photo of the booth screen instead of paying for it, DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 can watermark prints displayed in both the print confirmation and sharing screens.

The watermark image must be called print_watermark.png  and placed in the photo booth images folder.

Upgrade to DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 today

DSLR Remote Pro 3.18.2 is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased DSLR Remote Pro after 14 February 2022. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.
