29 January 2015: Breeze Kiosk released - New Product!

Breeze Kiosk is software to run a touchscreen kiosk which allows users to select images for printing, emailing or uploading to Facebook. It is aimed at event photographers and photo booth operators who need to offer users a simple to use touchscreen interface for printing, emailing and uploading photos to Facebook.

Breeze Kiosk is designed to work with our popular photobooth software and also with photobooth software from other vendors. When running a photobooth at a busy event it is important to encourage people to leave the booth after their photos have been taken to avoid queues building up. Running Breeze Kiosk on one or more touchscreen computers or Windows tablets outside the booth provides a fun way for people to look at their photos and choose reprints, email photos or upload photos to their Facebook pages without clogging up the photobooth. When not in use the kiosk can automatically run a slideshow of the photos.

An Instagram print station can be made by teaming up Breeze Kiosk with our Hotfolder Prints software. This allows users to post photos to Instagram using the hashtag for the event and have them automatically displayed in Breeze Kiosk where they can be printed, emailed or uploaded to Facebook.

Special offer: Save $25 off the normal purchase price of $75 by purchasing Breeze Kiosk with a full license or upgrade license for DSLR Remote Pro for Windows, NKRemote or Hotfolder Prints
