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!

Image Grids, Live Feeds and Real-time Slideshows in LiveBooth

Posted on: April 12th, 2015 by admin 3 Comments

LiveBooth started as a social media sharing kiosk app. To make it easy to use in different situations, we made it really good at bringing photos to your iPad from different photo sources like synced albums, Dropbox and LiveBooth Direct for Mac. It didn’t take long for us to realize that once you get those photos onto your iPad, there are other cool things you can do! In late 2014 we added a slideshow mode so you can use LiveBooth as either a sharing kiosk, for a slideshow or both if you have multiple iPads.

Now we’ve taken the Slideshow mode to the next level. It can present either 1, 3 or 6 images on the screen at a time using the new Image Grid setting. These image grids super modern and popular, especially with animated GIF’s which are fully supported for Slideshows. After you have your settings ready for the Slideshow panel, you can press Launch and then choose Slideshow mode.

If you plug your iPad into a widescreen TV using a lightning to HDMI adapter it will adjust the display to fill the entire screen.

You can make it a real-time feed of the latest photos by using the new Recent Photos setting to choose between 10 and 50 of the latest photos. The idea behind this is that after a guest gets their photo taken, they are more likely to see their photo right away on the big screen! You can get the perfect mix of a variety of photos and guests who are nearby seeing their photos.

Another small tweak is that Slideshow mode will skip images that haven’t loaded yet (in most cases).
