    Manned "Photobooth" Software

    by ks04 » Thu Mar 04, 2010 5:16 pm

    Hi Guys,
    For an event I'm attending soon I'm planning to have a manned Photobooth as such - Basically someone behind a camera plugged into a computer, press caputre a few times and print out the photos.
    What I'm after is a peice of software which will monitor a folder and when a new image is placed in it, Display the image full screen on a secondary monitor.
    Any ideas?
    Cheers.

    Lightroom can do it. If you're shooting Canon then the EOS Utility and DPP will do it as well.

    Dale.

    Use the EOS utitlity to shoot tethered and set DPP as the linked software in Preferences.

    When you take a shot you will see a window with the photo pop up on screen. Maximise that and it will show the new photo every time you take a shot.

    Where are you doing this ?

    I would love to have a look at the setup you are using.
