To let your guests draw on, sign and now add virtual props, emojis and stickers to their prints, select Advanced Settings, then Output Options Settings. Check the box marked Sign or draw on photos before printing, and OK as you leave.
You can create your own icon sets, but we have included these emoji/basic props for starters:
Guests can rotate, expand and shrink the icons. You can restrict them to decorating part of the print, and even prevent them from defacing part of it if your clients are sensitive.

What is Flipbook Photobooth?
Breeze Flipbook Photobooth is Windows based event software for creating flip books using a Canon DSLR camera. Guests capture a short animation and play it back by flicking through the pages of a printed flip book.
Run Flipbook Photobooth as a standalone app shooting the animation, creating and printing flip books
Thanks to Nick Andrews of Open Air Photobooth for allowing us to show this demo of Flipbook Photobooth at Osheaga 2014
Nick runs events and sells photo booth/flip book station packages using Breeze event software.
Printing flip books from boomerang GIFs created in DSLR Remote Pro
Flipbook photobooth 1.8 comes with two scripts which create flip books when guests make boomerang GIFs in DSLR Remote Pro. One script creates a flip book for every boomerang GIF, the other asks the guest whether to print the flip book.
You can find these scripts in the Flipbook Photobooth installation folder. This is usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Breezesys\Flip Book Photobooth (1) as as shown here:
Note: These scripts use the free Windows scripting tool, AutoHotKey. You need to download and install AutoHotKey before you run them.
auto_print.ahk(2) prints the flip book automatically when the animated GIF is accepted in DSLR Remote Pro.
auto_print_with_prompt.ahk(3) ask the guests whether to print the flip book.
Breeze also provide a free script which creates a GIF animation of each flip book sequence. This script uses the free Windows scripting tool, AutoHotKey and the ImageMagick convert command line tool. AutoHotKey must be downloaded and installed before you run the script.
New photo booth mode where guests see themselves pose live, start the action and view the animated GIF/movie on screen
Ability to brand and customise the screens seen by guests
Integrated control for Esper Trigger boxes
Point and click camera alignment
Ability to add soundtrack to videos
Support for new cameras.

Note: the Canon EOS M50 and Canon EOS 3000D/Canon EOS 4000D are not recommended for event rigs where all the cameras need to be triggered at the same time because the cameras don’t have remote release sockets. The Canon EOS 3000D/Canon EOS 4000D also does not have support for external power.

Canon EOS M50
Smaller, lighter and slimmer than conventional DSLRs, this is the first model which can capture high quality slow motion video in a photo booth with no addional post processing.
Video is captured at 120 fps without sound and is saved at 30 fps resulting in high quality play back at 1/4 normal speed.
Canon EOS 200D/Rebel T7
Update of the Canon EOS 1300D/Rebel T6 and virtually identical but with a higher resolution 24 mega pixel sensor.
Canon EOS 4000D
Very similar to a Canon EOS 1300D/Rebel T6 with the same 18 mega pixel sensor but with cheaper build quality (plastic lens mount, fewer buttons, no remote release socket and no cable access for external power).
