Sparkbooth 6.1 Beta WebView Update

This is the first release of the 6.1 beta.

The web browser view has been updated to a modern web browser standard. Previously for the Windows version, Sparkbooth used Internet Explorer web browser component for this. Many web sites, like SmugMug, Flickr, and Tumblr, are no longer supporting Internet Explorer. With this update, you will be able to sign into those web services without opening an external web browser. The new web view browser also has the benefit of signing out of Facebook and other services much faster.

The Mac version of Sparkbooth for this update is now 64-bit. With the upcoming MacOS Catalina release, 32-bit applications will no longer work on Mac.

Please download and give this beta a try and let me know if you find any issues.

Stay tuned for more updates and features.

With the latest Sparkbooth 6 update for Premium and DSLR licenses, stickers can be moved, resized, and rotated by guests. When a sticker is placed on the photo, the sticker will have touch controls for moving, resizing and rotating the sticker. Works great for applying virtual props to photos.

New Sparkbooth movable, resizable, and rotatable stickers and props

To allow guests to move, resize and rotate stickers, go to the Layout Editor and select the drawing area on the layout, and in the properties dialog enable "Make draggable". If the "Make draggable" settings is disabled, the stickers will be applied to the photo immediately instead of being movable.

Sparkbooth 6 also comes with a set of image set of virtual props. In the stickers list, select "Props" to enable these new stickers.
