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 www.simplebooth.com!
If you plan to use a DSLR that is not tethered to a computer, there are some good options for you. You do not even need to have a computer at your event, an extra iPad will do! The extra iPad is necessary to run an app that will receive your photos either directly from your DSLR’s wireless or from a separate device such as an Eye-Fi card. Do not count on the iPad with LiveBooth running an app for this purpose in the background because it will most likely time out or get shut down by the operating system.
Two options to use on this second device are Eye-Fi or Shuttersnitch. Make sure to consult with the makers of these apps with any specific technical questions. These tips are not guarantees that a third-party app will work for you.
Eye-fi places photos into Camera Roll when it receives them which also means they will be added to My Photo Stream if it is enabled on your iPad. Therefore, if you receive photos to an iPad on the same iCloud account and Wi-Fi network as the iPad running LiveBooth you can access those photos in LiveBooth almost instantly.
Shuttersnitch app has a lot of ways it can receive photos. As long as you get it set up to successfully receive your photos, you can create an Action in Shuttersnitch to “Save to Photos” which saves them to Camera Roll. You can also create an Action to export them to Dropbox. Therefore you could either use My Photo Stream or Dropbox to access the photos in LiveBooth. The possibilities are endless!
