One Year Ago

One year ago, Sparkbooth debuted at the Adobe MAX conference as part a promotion for Adobe’s purchasing system. The product was a much simpler piece of software – little graphics, no voice prompts, no animation, no printing, no uploading. Very different from what it is today. Thanks to all the great feedback and encouragement from Sparkbooth customers, the software was improved to what you see today. But there is more to come. Keep an eye out for some very exciting changes and additions in next few months. Look for announcements here, on Facebook, or Twitter

Thank you! And Happy Halloween!

Photo Booth Uploads ScreenTweet, Plixi, Video Hotkey | 2.3.2 Update

Sparkbooth 2.3.2 has been released. Changes include:

  • Switch ScreenTweet uploader to new OAuth API
  • TweetPhoto is now Plixi. Updated service urls for new domain
  • Use control-K or command-K to switch video/image color on “Press space bar to begin” screen
  • Print prompt dialog now shows print preview

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
  • New 2” x 4” strip layout

To update, start Sparkbooth on your computer while connected to the internet and you will be prompted to install the update.

Twitter Authentication Switch Over

Starting today, August 31th, 2010, Twitter is switching off basic authentication for third-party services. This means all the Twitter upload services in Sparkbooth 2.2.1 or lower will no longer work. If you want to continue to use any of these Twitter upload services, please download and install Sparkbooth 2.3 Beta. TwitrPix, Img.ly, MobyPicture, Posterous, TweetPhoto, TwitGoo, TwitPic, and yFrog have all been updated to use the new OAuth authentication method now required by Twitter. Unfortunately, ScreenTweet, TwitDoc, and TwitSnaps have not updated their services to use the new authentication method, so they have been removed from Sparkbooth for now until they have been updated.
