For total control have guests enter data into your own webpage, generating a unique QR code they can use to power virtually every aspect of the booth. Feel free to start from this sample PHP script
Touch free sharing
Improve guest experience, encourage repeated sharing and reduce queuing. Guests enter their email addresses once using their smart phone, and scan their unique QR code each time they want to share an image.
Fantastic for festivals, theme parks and other large venues with multiple booths. Great for groups – everyone quickly scans their details into the sharing screen to receive a copy of the image.
Turning the QR code concept on it’s head, you can also display a QR code on your sharing screen for guests to scan with their smart phone. Use this to direct guests to your online gallery for immediate social sharing.
Pre-register your guests as they wait in line. Each guest receives a unique QR code they use to control your booths and kiosks. Make this a fun and efficient way to collect valuable data.
Use Breeze Booth for iPad registration stations for engaging surveys and printed badges with the QR code, or design your own webpages to collect the same data and generate the code without guests touching a booth.
AI Background removal
AI based Background removal is a great alternative to green screen. The quality is awesome, there’s no cumbersome backdrop, and lighting is much simpler.
Corporate clients will love the ability to shoot against a busy background..
… and get prints like this
We’ve made it much easier to incorporate background removal into DSLR Remote Pro. At the time of writing, we support third party background removal services from Photobooth Deluxe, Gadbooth and removebg.
Google changed the requirements for authenticating Gmail emails this year. As a result many Gmail users found they could no longer send emails from third party apps.
Gmail users now need to ‘authenticate’ ie approve third party applications which send emails from their gmail accounts.
The ability to upload to and download from third party applications such as Photobooth Deluxe, Gadbooth and removebg is subject to each third party concerned continuing to allow such interactions. These features are tested before they are released but may cease to function or be removed without notice if the third party concerned no longer allows such interaction, or changes the method/protocol required.
You will need to authenticate Gmail emails for Breeze on every PC sending gmail emails from DSLR Remote Pro. The remainder of this post explains how to do this.
*Update 8 June 2020: Kiosk 2.0 supports Gmail’s new authentication requirements
How to get your Gmail emails working again:
DSLR Remote Pro 3.15 users should go to the Email Server Settings screen, and
(1) Set Host to gmail.
You may need to select OK, then return to Email Server Settings window before you see the Gmail authenticate… button.
Select Gmail authenticate… to go through Google’s online authentication process.
When you press Gmail authenticate.. for the first time, a web page is displayed where you complete the authentication process. When you finish, Google sends you an email confirming what you have done :
If you have more than one gmail account, you may be asked to select the one you use to send emails from Breeze.
Give the program permission to send emails on your behalf:
Confirm the level of access you are giving to the program. Breeze apps just need consent to send emails.
Google will confirm that the app can send emails, and you can close the browser window.
Google also send an email confirming that you have allowed Breeze Booth to send emails:
Before you leave the DSLR Remote Pro Email Server Settings screen, send yourself a test email (2):
(3) DSLR Remote Pro displays a message confirming that you have been sent a test email
Please Note: if you are using a free Gmail account, the Email address used at (4) will be ignored by Google and the email will be sent using your ***@gmail.com email address:
What about other Breeze programs?
We will be adding Gmail authentication support to our other Windows apps in the next release of each program.
For the time being we suggest using an alternative email service to send emails from Breeze
