If you are new to DSLR Remote Pro or Webcam Photobooth, first run the Photo booth Setup Wizard. This creates all the screens for a basic working system. It also creates print layouts with a plain white background. The video demonstrates

Copy the zipped file to another folder to unzip it. I have copied the file to my templates folder Sue Photobooth Print Templates which is in the same directory as my PhotoboothImages Folder.
Start DSLR Remote Pro and run the Photobooth Setup Wizard
At Step 3
1. Check the printer is set correctly.
2. Choose the print layout closest to the template you are using
3. Click on <Finish>
If you look at the Print Layout Editor now you will see the default 1 + 3 print layout. (Cancel to leave the Layout Editor).
Drag and drop into DSLR Remote Pro
DSLR Remote Pro allows you to drag and drop a print layout into the main screen or into the Print Layout Editor
You will be asked to confirm whether you want to import the template:
Select Yes and the Print Layout Editor will display the template you imported.
Customize and save the revised template
First save a backup copy of the original layout using Export Layout, then customize the layout to meet your needs.This post does not explain how to use the Print Layout Editor; you can find detailed instructions here. In this example I will change the caption.
The changes are shown immediately in the Print Layout Editor.
When you have finished customising the print layout, export the template to save it.
Alternative: Use the Print Layout Editor to import templates
There is an alternative to dragging and dropping templates into DSLR Remote Pro. You can copy templates into a folder accessible to your booth, then import the template you need using the Import Layout (1) button in the Print Layout Editor.
(2) Select the folder containing your layout(s), and then the layout you want to import. (3) Click on OK to import the layout into the Print Layout Editor. You can edit and save the customized template as before.
Webcam Photobooth users need to select the “DSLR template compatibility” option at Step 3 of the Photobooth Setup Wizard to use templates designed for DSLR Remote Pro.
Zipped files: many templates are downloaded or copied as zipped (compressed) files, which need to be unzipped before they can be used. The example here uses a zipped file downloaded from the Breeze website.
Printer drivers: you may need to download and install drivers for your printer to the computer you are using.
Using a second computer to edit print layouts. You do not need to create and edit print layouts on the booth computer. Keep a copy of DSLR Remote Pro on an office computer to design, customize and edit your print layouts; export them from the program and either store them somewhere accessible to your booths, or copy the complete layouts to each booth computer.
