A Green Screen Photo Booth is an automated photography system that lets a user start a photo session that can take one or more images and in some cases view a live image for each photo so that they can orient themselves. The output is often multiple images on a single printed page.

Many Photobooths are aimed at people at a party that are just having some fun and do not care about the quality of the photo. Green Screen Wizard supports the party folks but it also can be configured to offer very high quality output. The benefit is that you can configure the booth to be fast and efficient with few user choices or you can configure it to produce high quality images with lots of user selected options.

The Green Screen Photobooth extends a simple Photobooth system by adding green screen support with its proven best of class green screen engine. It also gives support for sandwich overlays in even in the live view mode.

Easy to Use


Green Screen Photobooth After installing the system click on the Green Screen Wizard Photobooth icon on your desktop to start the program. After starting Green Screen Wizard Photobooth you will see the Photobooth icon.

Clicking on it revels the Photobooth dialog. To run the Photobooth you must select a program, a printer and a camera. Once this is done (your last selections will be remembered) you can click start Photobooth.

It is that easy for the operator!

The screen will fill with the Photobooth Pages. What pages are shown, what they do and how they look is controlled by the program you are running and the "Skins" that were selected by the program.



Great Camera Support


Unlike less expensive Photobooths that only support webcams, the Green Screen Wizard Photobooth supports Nikon, and Canon EOS cameras and for folks on a budget it also has support for Webcams.
In the beta version of the software there were problems controlling the Nikon and Canon cameras. The new version 3 software makes use of the proven DigiCam software to reliably control the these cameras. An improved webcam system has also been added.


This gives you the advantage of using the camera you have or selecting the camera that fits the budget of the Photobooth you are building. With the Green Screen Wizard as the processing software you can select any resolution and size of output and get the great results only a high quality DSLR deliver.

Customers will love seeing a system that appears customized to their event. Photobooth manufactures will love the idea of banding the look of their Photobooth. Whatever the reason the ability to customize is a great feature. The Green Screen Wizard Photobooth can run programs that change the behavior of the booth but it is the skins (user defined backgrounds) that give the look.
Each set of backgrounds can be put in a folder that is selectable by the program.
Here are the backgrounds that can be changed:

OpeningPageBackground.jpg - the background for the opening page
OpeningPageStartButton.png - the opening page start button
BackgroundChoicePageBackground.jpg - the background for background choice page
BackgroundChoicePageStartButton.png - background choice page start button
BackgroundChoiceBack.png - background choice page scroll back arrows
BackgroundChoiceForward.png - background choice page scroll forwards arrows
ProgressPageBackground.jpg - the background for the progress page
ReviewPageBackground.jpg - the background for the review page
ThankyouPageBackground.jpg - the background for the Thank you page

The system ships with three skin folders Curtains, Party and Wedding. You can modify them or create whole new skins.



Amazing Image Quality


Many Photobooths are not concerned about image quality. Green Screen Wizard supports fast low quility images but it also can be configured to offer very high quality output. The benefit is that you can configure the booth to be fast and efficient with few user choices or to produce high quality images with lots of use selected options.

The Green Screen Wizard Photobooth extends a simple Photobooth system by adding green screen support with its proven best of class green screen engine. It also gives support for sandwich overlays even in the live view mode.

The Green Screen Wizard Photobooth uses a fast overlay and green screen removal system for the live view preview. Then after shooting is over it will create high quality images using its normal green screen engine.

For this reason, the Green Screen Wizard Photobooth software can be used as fun Photobooth software but also as an automated professional quality portrait system.

Infinite Printer Templates


The Green Screen Wizard Photobooth expands the printer template generator capabilities of the standard program by adding background images and lets the user assign a photo sequence number to each image. The program uses this number to determine how many images will be taken by the booth. The template can select any paper size it wants and add as many images of various size to the template (4 is the maximum images that the booth will take but the same sequence number can be used on several images). Layouts can be designed for horizontal or vertical orientation.

The program is supplied with 15 standard printer templates.

Flexible Output


Green Screen Photobooth The Photobooth has many options for dealing with the output. It can send it to the users email address, text it to his phone or print it on a printer.

What options are presented to the user are determined by the program. You can choose not to display the page at all and the system will simple print the photo. You can choose to do any combinations of Printing, Email or Text. The keyboard is presented if you select email or texting so that touch screens are supported.


If the user is happy with his or her photo then they can click print or enter an email address and touch the letter. If they want a text sent to their phone they enter their phone number with area code and then click on their carrier.

If they are not happy with the photo they can choose to take it again by clicking on the camera.

The decision to show a horizontal or vertical output is determined by the program that is running.


Easy Program Generation


Why would you need programs? The answer is that this software is designed to smoothly meet the needs of the situation.

For example if you are running in a museum and want to offer the system for free you may not want to pay for printing the photos and only allow email or texts.

At a trade show you want the uses to go through the booth quickly so you give them lower resolution photos and do not give them background choices or let then review the output.

In a realtors office you would want very high quality output and a selection of backgrounds.

If you are selling photos at a fair you would want to give the user choices of overlays.

Program Name
The first entry is the name of the program. You must provide a unique name so that you do not overwrite another program.

Image Size and Orientation
The system offers a large verity of images sizes and orientations. The most popular sizes for a Photobooth are 4x6 or 5x7. The size of the image is not the same as the size of the printed output. For example you can print 2 5x7 on an 8x10 printer. Making the image size a higher resolution will slow down the final processing but give you better output. Experiment with your printer. If you only allow multiple image photos then you can should use the low dpi images.

The Single Image Template
This dropdown will select the printer template that will be used then the user selects single output. Even if they only want a single image on the printout it can be borderless or inside a background border. Click here for more information on how to create/edit templates.

The Multiple Image Template
This template will be used when the user selects Photobooth style output. The template determines how many photos it needs to fill itself up to a maximum or 4 images. This effects the number of background choices on the Background Choice Page and how many photos will be taken by the Live View Page. Click here for more information on how to create/edit templates.

Opening Screen Output Button Choice

Other Options
Mirror Preview Image - When a person looks at the screen they expect it to work like a mirror if I move right the image should me right. But a photo is not a mirror. By checking this the user will find it easier to position themselves in overlays. They will be surprised when the final image is not mirrored.

Do Green Screening - You can turn off green screen and the system will act like a normal Photobooth. Overlays can still be applied so the background screen is shown.

Rotate Print Preview - Depending on how you layout your printed output you may want to show it as rotated on the Review Page. Note: In green screen wizard the image is always printed vertically (portrait style)

Length of Photo Session Factor
Depending on the camera, your computer and the complexity of the overlay the user may need more time to compose the photo. This number will cause the system to add live view frames between the countdown images. This will case the live view preview to last longer.
