Upload to Multiple Locations

Sparkbooth 3.8.9 update is now available. This update allows you always send photos into the Send It Later queue regardless of the selected uploader. So you can select the one of the “Guest” uploaders to allow guests to post photos to their own Facebook or Twitter accounts. Then later after the event, you can upload all the queued photos to your Facebook page or other location.

To use this feature:

  1. Go to Sparkbooth Settings
  2. Go to Uploading and select “Guest Upload Chooser”, “Guest Facebook”, or “Guest Twitter”
  3. Check the option at the bottom of to “Queue into Send It Later”

Now as photos are taken, guests will be given the option to upload to their Facebook or Twitter account, and the photo will be queued in “Send It Later”. After the event, you can go to the “Send It Later” upload settings and upload photo to a Facebook page or other upload location.

Sparkbooth Commercial Suite Updated

Updates are now available for both Sparkbooth Layout Creator and Photo Kiosk. Both these applications are part of the Sparkbooth Commercial Suite of applications, and are great complements to Sparkbooth. If you have an Commercial license you can use your activations to unlock them.

Sparkbooth Layout Creator is a visual editor for creating your own layouts to use in Sparkbooth. You can create layouts for a variety of paper sizes, photos, and customize the background and overlay images. This update is the initial 1.0 release. Changes include cleaned up UI components, and added option to toggle guidelines that divide the paper vertically and horizontally.

Sparkbooth Photo Kiosk allows you to setup a separate station for your guests to browse, print, and upload photos to Facebook or Twitter taken by your photo booth. Just network your photo booth and kiosk computers together, and point Sparkbooth Photo Kiosk at the shared folder where your photo booth saves photos. This minor update improves the text and instructions.

Sparkbooth Photo Album Kiosk is a standalone application for creating a separate station where your guests can browse, print, share on Facebook/Twitter, or email photos taken from your photo booth. Just share your photo booth computer’s photos folder with your kiosk computer, and your guests can get prints and share photos without stopping your photo booth.

Check out Epic Party Booth’s article on their experiences with setting up a separate print and upload kiosk.

If you are currently using the “Photo Album Kiosk” mode in Sparkbooth, please take a look at this beta. The “Photo Album Kiosk” mode will be removed from Sparkbooth, and you will be required to use this application. The setup is also much easier with the standalone version.
