SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide: Quick-Start
SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth Quick-Start
Setting up SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth is simple. Let's get started and launch the application.
SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth is nearly identical between platforms. We will use screen shots from both
Macintosh and Windows systems throughout this guide. If there is an element that is platform specific, it will be
noted specifically according to the platform it pertains to.
Launch SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth
Double-click the SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth icon on your desktop (Windows) or in your
Applications folder (Mac).
At this point, you should see the application's splash screen. Loading
time will vary depending on your settings, memory, and the processing
power of your computer.
Activate SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth
If you haven’t activated
SnapShot Studio™ Photo

Studio™ Photo Booth’s features are fully functional in demo mode; a watermark will be placed on all output
until SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth is activated.
Running SnapShot Studio™ for the First Time
If this is the first time you're running SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth, you'll be taken directly to the Setup
Wizard window. The wizard will walk you through the basic setup. For advanced settings, you'll want to exit
the wizard and use the main Preferences window.
The first page of the Setup Wizard gives you a brief overview of what you'll set up.You are given the
opportunity to exit the wizard and go to the main preferences window. Otherwise,click the continue button to
proceed.

SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide: Quick-Start-Camera Setup
Setting Up Cameras
Webcam:
Using a webcam is needed in
order to provide an on-screen
preview, even if you wish to use a
DSLR camera with your photo
booth.
If your webcam is not showing a
live preview, click the Webcam
Connect button to initiate the
camera. Be sure that it is
connected and functional.
DSLR:
SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth
allows you to use a PTP Remote
capable camera. Most DSLR
cameras have this capability. Please refer to your camera's User Guide if you do not know if it is PTP Remote
capable.
If you haven't already, connect your camera and power it on. It is
probably a good idea to turn off any power saving features your
camera may have.
When you select the PTP Camera Capture setting, a connection
window and camera setup window will appear.
Macintosh: A small window will show a pop-up menu, listing any
cameras it may find. If the pop-up menu reads "Searching...", it
means SnapShot Studio™ has not found a camera.
Windows: You should see a standard device connect
window, listing any available cameras to your system.
It may take as long as ten seconds before a camera can
be found. If your camera can't be found, check your
connections and be sure that your camera is set to PTP
mode.
Both Mac OS and Windows systems are designed to
detect and take action when a camera is discovered. This
can be problematic when running a Photo Booth because
you do not want any other applications to take control of
your camera except, of course, the Photo Booth.
Windows: Disable Auto-Play
You can disable Auto-Play from taking control of your
camera when it is plugged in. If not, you'll be prompted
each and every time your camera is attached or powered
on. To disable Auto-Play from doing this, Plug in your
camera and turn it on. The Auto-Play will show a dialog
and ask what you wish to do. There is a link to the AutoPlay control panel at the bottom of the window- click on
the link.
Once you are in the Auto-Play control panel, you should
see your camera listed at the very bottom of the list.
Macintosh: Disable Other Photo Programs from Using Your Camera
Connect your camera and open the Image Capture application located in your Applications folder. Your
camera should appear in the upper-left hand corner and your applications options should appear at the bottom
of the left panel. Be sure that you select "No
Application" for the camera connection.
This is often overlooked but a common issue
when it seems your camera is not working
with SnapShot Studio Photo Booth- another
application has taken control of your camera.

SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide: Quick-Start- Select a Template
Page Template
You'll need to set up at least one Page Template in order to start your Photo Booth. Step 3 of the Setup
Wizard allows you to preview
and select the layout of your
choice. If you have created a
custom layout, it will appear in
the list.
Each template will display
information that will be helpful in
your selection: the width and
height of the page, how many
photos will be taken for the
template, and how many
banners you have to add your
own graphics
You can have up to ten photos in
a template and up to two
banners. Banners are places on
your template where you can
add custom graphics like "Joe
and Mary's Wedding 2011" or "Holly's Sweet Sixteen".
All templates can have a custom background and overlay graphic added.
Setting Page Graphics
Adding graphics to a layout can completely transform your photo booth prints and custom tailor your prints for
a specific event. Adding elements like background graphics and overlays can be easily done with the help of
your favorite image editing program.
In this example, this template will
accept only page overlay and
page background graphics. The
text shown is part of the
background image, but could
have easily been incorporated
into a banner. If it were used as a
banner, it would make it very
easy to reuse the background
image for other events.
We wanted to give the impression
of the images being recessed into
the page, so our overlay graphic
is no more than a transparent
PNG containing the needed
shadows to achieve the effect we
are looking to produce.
In order to create truly stunning prints, our suggestion to you is to experiment as much as possible. We've
given you the needed options to create prints like no other Photo Booth.

SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide: Quick-Start- Other Setup Details
Other Setup Details
Settings Name: Give your new
layout a descriptive and unique
name to make it easier for recall
later. As time passes, you may
accumulate many layouts and the
more descriptive you are, the
easier it will be to differentiate
between them.
Printer Setup: If you plan on
printing your photos, you will need
to configure a printer. The basic
settings are page size, printer of
your choice, and margins. If any of
these settings are not correct, you
may have unexpected results with
your output.
Print Duplicates: Allows you to automatically print multiple copies of all composite photo booth images.
Auto-Save: You must specify a location to save your photos. SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth will save both
composite and individual photos neatly, automatically.
Color Effects: One-click setup of Black & White and Sepia effects. You can also apply an auto levels filter to
your images. This is especially effective with Black & White/Sepia photos as it gives your images a little more
"punch".
Special Considerations When Setting Up Your Printer
There are minor differences between setting up your printer on Macintosh and Windows systems. You won't
need to worry about orientation for either platform.
Windows: Outside of specifying the proper paper size for your
output, you should take note to zero out all margins.
By default, the Windows Printer Setup Dialog will show one-inch
margins. Unless that is what you desire for your prints, zero out
all margins.
Macintosh: You will need to specify the proper
paper size and printer. Both are very important
to ensure expected output.
A common mistake when setting up your printer
is to leave the 'Format For:" section as "Any
Printer". This will not render your prints
correctly and should be set for the specific
printer you intend to use.

SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide: Running a Photo Booth Session
Running a Photo Booth Session
Start Page
Once your photo booth settings are stored, you can
begin a session. SnapShot Studio's start page will allow
you to start a session or return to your preferences
settings.
If you have more than one layout available for your
session, pressing the "Start Photo Booth" button will
bring you to the Welcome Page. If only one layout is
available, SnapShot Studio will bring you straight to the
Photo Capture Page.
Welcome Page
If more than one layout is available to your users,
the Welcome Page will be their default starting
point. If only one layout is available, the default
page will be the Photo Capture Page.
This page allows your users to browse and
select all layouts you have made available to
them. The process is straight-forward: Browse,
select, and begin the session.
Also built into the welcome page is the ability to
quit SnapShot Studio™ and to gain access to the
photo booth's settings; both are password protected in order to avoid a user from gaining unauthorized access
to your system.
Photo Capture Page
SnapShot Studio's Photo Capture
Page is where the user starts the
capture process.
The main section of the window shows
a live view from your webcam.
The visual countdown is shown
above the webcam's live view. It will
give a "Ready" message, then
proceed with a numerical countdown.
Below the live view area is the start
button. This begins the capture
process.
The Preferences button is located in the lower-right of the screen. This allows an administrator to stop the
session and return to the photo booth's Preferences window.
Thumbnails are displayed on the left side of the screen, showing photos that have already been taken.
Thank You Page
SnapShot Studio will show a Thank
You page immediately after
processing the captured photos.
This page displays your thank you
message (or instructions) to the
user, along with a preview of the
composite image.
The Thank You Page will stay visible
for about ten seconds before
returning back to the Welcome or
Photo Capture pages..

Backgrounds
There are two types of slide show
images that can be set in
SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth.
Set Background: This is the
background image that will render
behind your photos during a slide
show. Be sure to check the
resolution of the monitor on which
the slide show will run. You will
want to create this background to
match the monitor's resolution.
Holding Image: The holding
image is meant to display an
image or graphic when there are
no images available to begin
building a slide show. Like your background image, you'll want your holding image to reflect the size of the
slide show's monitor.

post photos and/or albums to your account or its Fan Pages.

SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth User Guide:Facebook Integration
Advanced Settings
SnapShot Studio™ Photo Booth
allows you to use a custom
Facebook Application ID, account
setting, and token.
This is meant only for those who
are familiar with Facebook's
developer information. If you are
not familiar, do not alter your
advanced settings as they could
disable your ability to post images
to your Facebook account.
Allen Christopher provides no
support and extends no warranty
for Facebook or the usage of these
advanced controls. Facebook
development is outside of the
scope of this guide and, therefore,
will not be discussed in detail.
You can find more information
about Application IDs and
Facebook development at their
developer's portal.
Application ID
You may have the need to register your own Facebook application. If so, you can use that App ID with
SnapShot Studio™.
Facebook Account
This will lock your Facebook requests to a specific account.
Custom Token
Allows you to use a token obtained by a web page or similar means.
