Introduction

 
Webcam Photobooth is fully featured software for using a standard USB webcam on a Windows PC to run a photobooth. The software displays live images on the screen and runs an automated picture taking sequence before formatting and printing out the results. Webcam Photobooth is suitable for a wide range of professional and semi-professional photo booths from simple setups printing a traditional 4 photo strip right through to more sophisticated photo booths with green screen shooting and touchscreen controls.

 

Webcam Photobooth also supports video booth shooting to record short video clips, complete with sound, and save it as a standard AVI file. In operation the booth and switch between stills photo booth mode and video booth mode.

 

The software works in the same way as our other photobooth software (DSLR Remote Pro for Windows for Canon DSLRs, PSRemote for Canon PowerShot cameras and NKRemote for Nikon DSLRs). Please see this series of articles on photobooth shooting for lots of useful information about setting up the software, selecting a suitable printer and designing the print layouts.

 
 

Suitable Cameras

 
Any Windows compatible USB webcam should work with Webcam Photobooth. For best results use a high quality webcam such as the Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD, Microsoft LifeCam Studio, Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 HD or Logitech C910 HD Webcam. These webcams give good quality results even in poor lighting conditions and have autofocus and a wide angle lens making it easier to take pictures of groups of people in the photobooth.
