This has been a long few months and it is great that events are restarting at least for some of us.
Make sure you are ready. If DSLR Remote Pro is new to you, please download a copy and try it for yourself. There is no charge for the first two weeks. If you have an older license and would like to try v3.15.1 before committing to buying the upgrade, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org including your current registration.
We have added a bunch of great new features in the latest release of Kiosk. Guests can collect and share several images using the new clipboard. You are loving Touch free operation in DSLR Remote Pro and Booth (iPad + iPhone), so we have added touch free sharing to Kiosk.
There’s more – Kiosk 2.0 introduces a QR code based filter you can use so guests see only their own images.
Kiosk 2.0 also adds a new startup screen displayed while Kiosk loads the first images, an improved algorithm for caching thumbnails, support for Gmail’s new authentication requirements, and a few fixes.
Select and share several images
Guests can select several photos, GIFs or videos and share them in a single email with the new Kiosk clipboard
You can choose the look and position of the clipboard, and set a limit to the number of images guests can share.
Note: When filtering images include email address* or another unique identifer in both QR code and DSLR Remote Pro or Booth (iPad + iPhone) image filenames.
New startup screen
startup.jpg is a new screen displayed while images are being loaded into Kiosk each time it starts.
Usually only the operator sees this screen. To replace it with your own version add a jpg called startup.jpg to the Kiosk screen images folder. Like other screens startup.jpg should be the same size in pixels as the screen on the device.
Google changed the requirements for authenticating Gmail emails this year.
To send Gmail emails from a PC running Kiosk you will need to ‘authenticate’ ie approve third party applications which send emails from their gmail accounts. Go to the Kiosk 2.0 Email Server Settings screen and enter gmail in the Host field. You can find step by step instructions for DSLR Remote Pro here. Authentication for Kiosk works in the same way.
Try Kiosk 2.0 for yourself
Breeze Kiosk 2.0 is a free upgrade for all registered users who purchased Kiosk after 5th June 2019. Customers with older licenses need to buy an upgrade license to use this release.

More about background removal with DLSR Remote Pro and Booth (iPad + iPhone)
The ability to upload to and download from third party applications such as AI Background Remove, 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.
