Photo Booth Fixes for Flickr, Posterous, Print Margins | 2.4.5 and 2.5.5 Update

This is a maintenance release:

  • Photo layout settings control uses less memory.
  • Fix issue where the loading screen hangs on start up if the Flickr uploader is selected.
  • Tumblr uploader now works with accounts with multiple sites. Select the site to post photos by entering the correct tumblr.com url (i.e. yoursite.tumblr.com).
  • Posterous uploader renamed to “Posterous Twitter”. Posterous has different upload APIs, the Posterous Twitter upload uses their Twitter authenticated API.
  • Allow negative print margins. This is useful in cases where the actually print area reported is different from actual. For example, if the top of your print is being cut off by 10 pixels. In this case, you will want to enter a top margin of 10px and bottom margin of -10px to push the entire photo down by 10px.
  • Change remaining comment character indicator.

Twitter Photo Booth Oauth Uploads | 2.3 Update

Sparkbooth 2.3 has been released. This is a major release and contains many new features:

  • Convert Twitter service uploaders to new OAuth authentication. On August 31th, Twitter turned off basic authentication which is used by all the Twitter upload services in Sparkbooth 2.2, so these upload services stopped working on that date. The conversion to OAuth will allow those upload services to continue to work.
  • Add yfrog uploader
  • Removed ScreenTweet, TwitDoc, and TwitSnaps uploaders since they do not support Twitter OAuth authentication requirement
  • New re-print feature. Press control-P or command-P to reprint the last photo during the “Press Spacebar to Begin” screen.
  • New application lock feature. When locked, users cannot quit the application, exit full screen, access settings or camera dialogs. Press control-L or command-L to toggle lock mode. Unlocking can be protected with a password.
  • Added 3-photo and 1-photo layouts. Sparkbooth can now handle less than 4 photo sessions.
  • Added video display-only theme. This is useful if you are using a 1-photo layout.
  • Added usage statistics to Settings > Options > Other
  • Fixed issue with clicking on “Press Spacebar to Begin” message to start photo session.
  • Add missing “2 x 2 Top, Portrait” layout
  • New 1 + 3 layouts
  • New 4 x 1 duplicate strip with logo layout
