Breeze Software AddOn ~ Before-After-Photobooth

functionality

The guest starts the photo booth sequence, enters his name or another ID on the on-screen keyboard and takes the photo.
This is the BEFORE photo. The guest takes another photo with the same name or ID within a predefined period of time (e.g. 120 minutes). This is the AFTER photo.
The program is now looking for the matching pair of BEFORE and AFTER photos from the DSLRRemotePro Prints folder and copies both files into a freely definable new folder. From there z. B. with Breeze HotfolderPrint a print collage with the BEFORE & AFTER photo can be created and printed out.

Examples of usage scenarios

In the hairdressing salon

The guest can take a picture before being styled and one at the end of the appointment.
On the collage, the logo and address of the hairdresser can be seen and a code via which the guest can e.g. B. can share on Facebook with his friends. Every month, a winning picture is drawn from all shared photos in which the hairdressing salon was tagged and a prize is distributed.

In the beauty salon

The guest makes a before-after shot at each session.
The logo, the address and possibly also the service performed can be read on the collage. Here, too, the picture can be shared with friends using a code.
Every month, among all the shared photos in which the beauty salon has been tagged, a winning picture is drawn and a prize is distributed.

In the case of series of treatments lasting several weeks or months, the progress can also be documented with the pictures. Potential new customers also see that it is worth using the service.

At the folk festival

Start a competition in which the guest photographs himself after each measure and records his crash in a series of pictures.
Alternatively, the system can be used in front of the "worst" rides and guests can take a picture of themselves in the queue BEFORE the ride and once as white as chalk at the exit AFTER the ride.
So everyone can prove what a "crass guy" he is.
The picture can then be offered for sale.

At the gym

Here the scenario looks a little different. You can also set the period for the test between the before and after image to 7 or 10 days.
The athlete can then take a shot every week after training and get as before picture then the recording of the last training.
Once a year a video is then created with the pictures and the successes of the year ...
Instead of entering the name, a scan of the membership card would also be conceivable.

And there are certainly many other possible uses.

installation

Zum Download einfach oben den Button „Before-After-Photobooth Download“ nutzen.

Unzip the zip file into any folder.

To create a shortcut on the desktop for quick access, simply right-click on Before-After-Photobooth.exe and select Send to => Desktop in the menu.

  1. In the installation folder there is the file Settings.ini.
  2. Open this file with a text editor (e.g. Notepad) and enter the license key after LicenseKey = and the order ID from the purchase confirmation after PurchaseID =. Without these lines or with incorrect data, the software starts in the 15-day and fully functional test mode.
  3. When the program is started for the first time, the computer must be online. If a lifetime license has been purchased, the system can then be operated permanently without internet access.
  4. If a time-based license was acquired (e.g. monthly as part of the Photobooth Academy membership), the computer must be online once in each billing period when the program is started in order to query the validity of the license.
  5. To deactivate the license for a computer, an icon can be seen in the symbol area next to the clock while the program is running. A right click on the icon sets the function Deactivate License to disposal.

The program is started by double-clicking on Before-After-Photobooth.exe in the installation folder.

 

From this moment on, Before-After-Photobooth monitors the input folder of Settings.ini for suitable file name pairs.

 

What is a matching filename pair?

For a suitable file name pair, the file name must be identical from the start to the second _.

In the attached sample profile, you are asked for your first and last name. The file name structure in DSLRRemotePro looks like this.

{Survey1_text1} _ {_} survey1_text2% d_% t

{survey1_text1} contains the first name.
{survey1_text2} contains the last name.
%d and %t stand for the date and time.

 

Finished file names in the print folder thus look like this.

Juergen_Mayr_20180915_183500.jpg
Carina_Sommer_20180915_185720.jpg
Isabel_Leseratte_20180915_190816.jpg
Juergen_Mayr_20180915_191255.jpg

 

The bold part of the file name is compared.

The program would find a suitable file name pair in the example files:
Juergen_Mayr_20180915_183500.jpg and
Juergen_Mayr_20180915_191255.jpg

 

These files are then copied to the output folder defined in the Settings.ini file.
The older file is copied first and the newer file second.

  1. license data
    Instead of DEMO, enter the data from the Digistore24 order confirmation here.
    [License]
    PURCHASE_ID = DEMO
    license_key = DEMO
  2. The Settings section contains all other settings
    The lines with; are comments
