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.

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.
