Sparkbooth Help Center is now online. You can access it from the Support/FAQs menu item or going to http://help.sparkbooth.com.
I am still answering all support questions, but now everything will go through the help center system which will help me organize questions a little better. The help center has a FAQ and knowledge base which will answer a lot of your questions.
There is also a new discussion board where you can post your questions to other Sparkbooth users and exchange ideas.
Please take a look and let me know what you think. If you run into any problems, please email me by clicking the Contact Me link at the bottom of the page.
Some Mac users have been asking what Sparkbooth has to offer over the Mac’s own Photo Booth app. To start, I am a Mac user, Sparkbooth is developed on a Mac, and I created Sparkbooth because the Mac Photo Booth app didn’t offer everything I was looking for in a photo booth software, including:

Automatic printing has been a frequently requested feature for Sparkbooth. I have been working on a solution which is waiting on the release of Adobe AIR 2.0. [Note: Please do not install Adobe AIR 2.0 beta and run Sparkbooth. I am getting reports of webcam and printer issues when running the beta. Only run Sparkbooth on the latest release, Adobe AIR 1.5.3]
In the meanwhile, wedding photographer Josh Rodriguez has come up with a solution in Mac OS X using a simple Automator script. Check out Josh's article. Great job Josh!
[Update April 2, 2010]: Someone has pointed out AutoPrint as a similar printing solution for Windows users. If you are using this, please let me know how well it works.
