Photo Booth

With Photo Booth activation, you can create fun and memorable experiences that can be shared instantly, complete with branding. You can share your photos with friends immediately after the session with the Photo Booth Gallery, or by instant download.

 

 

Here is how it works:

  • Launch the activation

  • Select a template to use

  • Either upload the image from your device storage or use the device camera to capture a quick selfie

  • Tightly crop your face and hit Apply

  • And that’s all!

Settings

Play Restrictions

Here you can set the restrictions on game play. There are two options available:

Event Group: The user is allowed this many game plays across all activations associated with the Event. This total applies to any activation that has the Event Group setting enabled.

Individual: Limits the number of times this activation can be played. Empty or 0 is unlimited.

Experience

Photo Booth offers two different modes/experiences:

  • All in One - Opens the device's camera when the photo booth starts. This mode is great for full size photos. There are two different Photo Fit options available in this mode. These options will help you adjust your photo booth within your template cutout depending on your setup and camera.

    1. Contain - Contain preserves image quality; however, higher resolution cameras may create an empty margin at the top and bottom of your photo. This depends on the device and template you’re using.
    2. Fit - Fit will stretch your photo, if needed, to fit within the template cutout. Fit will never show any margins in your photo, but image resolution might be lower.

  • Capture then Adjust - Takes the user through a sequence of steps to create their photo. This mode is ideal for face swap photos as it makes it easier to take a picture then position the user's head inside the cutout. In this experience users can also upload their own photos instead of using the device's camera.

Templates

Photo Booth comes with a wide range of prebuilt templates (or frames) that you can use to take photos. For a customized template, contact your account representative for more information.

 

Custom Templates

You can use your own custom templates (or frames) if you like. The following parameters are required for any uploaded custom image:

  • X Coordinate
    This is the X coordinate of the template (pixels to the right of the bottom left of the template image) where the center of the inserted photo will be positioned.

  • Y Coordinate
    This is the Y coordinate the template (pixels up from the bottom left of the template image) where the center of the inserted photo will be positioned.

  • Photo Container Width
    The width of the container where the captured photo will be inserted into the template. For example, a camera could take a 1024 x 768 photo. If the Photo Container was 500 x 200, then the entire 1024 x 768 photo would get scaled down and inserted into the 500 x 200 container that gets added into the template.

  • Photo Container Height
    The height of the container where the captured photo will be inserted into the template. For example, a camera could take a 1024 x 768 photo. If the Photo Container was 500 x 200, then the entire 1024 x 768 photo would get scaled down and inserted into the 500 x 200 container that gets added into the template.

  • Inserted Photo Rotation
    Degrees to rotate the photo when added to the template. For example, if your template has a cutout of a head and the head is slightly tilted, you might add 20 (for a 20 degree tilt) as the Inserted Photo Rotation. Values can range from 0 to 360 (degrees).

Sharing Photos via Email

Photo Booth allows the option to share photos via email once they have been captured. There are two options:

  • Share via Email (Automatic) - This option will send an automatic email from the system to the provided recipients.

  • Share via Email (Using Device’s Email Client) - Uses the device’s default email client to send the email message. In this case, the From: address will be the email clients From: address, not a generic system email address.

  • Select from a List - Gives option to select person from a pre-loaded list. It requires a Security Code to allow access to the list. The Security Code should be at least 4 characters alphanumeric.

    Here is the workflow for selecting from list once the photo is taken:

     


    The following parameters can be customized with this option:

Beyond that, everything else is also customizable so you can set your own Email Subject, Email Message as well as Email Button Text etc.

Note: When playing Photo Booth with Captello iOS mobile app, the user will have to enter the pass code every time they play.
