LiveBooth was an app I created for live event photographers and photo booths. I developed and maintained it for several years, but this year I committed full-time to Simple Booth and realized I can no longer continue working on it. Thank you to you everyone who downloaded and used the app. If you still need it, is is available on the App Store, but it is no longer actively being maintained. If you’re looking for world-class photo booth apps and hardware, I encourage you to check out!

How to use LiveBooth for Large Events

Posted on: May 3rd, 2013 by admin No Comments

Are you the photographer at a large event and wondering if LiveBooth is going to be able to handle the capacity? After all, only so many people can use one iPad at a time, right?

In fact, if you just set up one iPad at an event with several hundred people, you may have a line ten people long the entire night! It will happen, trust us. Just having one iPad will be a big hit.

What is beautiful about handling capacity with LiveBooth Photo Share is two-fold. First, it’s as easy to set up one iPad as it is five or fifty. Second, as you add more iPads, you will not need more people to show guests how to use it because LiveBooth Photo Share is very intuitive in the first place and most guests will figure out how to use it on their own.

We recommend setting up approximately one iPad with LiveBooth Photo Share for every two hundred people at an event. Not only is this a good idea, but you can most likely up sell your client on the ability for more people to share branded photos from the event.

In order to set up multiple iPads running LiveBooth Photo Share, you should be using Photo Stream as the photo source. All the iPads will need to be on the same iCloud account and they will need to be syncing to the same stream. Once you have this in place, all the iPads will sync the same photos across each other as they are added to your stream. Just make sure that you are adding photos to the stream somewhere, whether it be on another iOS device with an Eye-Fi app running that’s paired with a card in your camera or through a watch folder and Apple’s provided software for PC or Mac.

There you have it! Have a blast. We know your guests will.
