These releases include the following enhancements to photobooth mode:

  • Added timeouts in photobooth mode for print confirmation and touchscreen keyboard input (and video confirmation for DSLR Remote Pro for Windows and Webcam Photobooth).

When the timeout occurs the software automatically cancels the operation and returns to the ready screen ready for the next user.
  • Displays optional reprinting,jpg screen image and skips the print confirmation screen when reprinting photobooth images. This avoids the need for users to confirm printing when selecting reprints and allows a separate reprinting.jpg screen to be displayed.
  • Added optional checkboxes to the touchscreen keyboard in photobooth mode. This is useful when uploading photos to the web as you can ask users for their consent

DSLR Remote Pro for Windows and NKRemote now have improved noise reduction when displaying black and white live preview images in photo booth mode. DSLR Remote Pro for Windows and NKRemote now include a monochrome tint/toning option to support printing in sepia and other tints in photobooth mode (Webcam Photobooth and PSRemote already have this option).
