Hotfolder Prints monitors a folder for incoming images (jpegs and PNG’s), then automatically formats them for printing, saving and/or emailing. Images can be sourced from a tethered camera, a cloud drive (Dropbox etc), shared network folder or a folder on your PC. Ideal for event photographers (real time, onsite printing), photo booths (reformatting for slideshows, sharing, printing) and photographers (batch processing of images).
The Twitter Hashtag Monitor monitors your event hashtags. When there’s a match, the images, captions and profile pictures will be automatically downloaded to your PC. Use Hotfolder Prints to then automatically format the images and print them. All in real time.

The ability to upload to and download from third party applications such as Smugmug, Twitter and Instagram is subject to each third party concerned continuing to allow such interactions.
These features are tested before they are released but may cease to function or be removed without notice if the third party concerned no longer allows such interaction, or changes the method/protocol required.
* Update December 2020: Instagram appear to have made changes which prevent the Instagram Hashtag Downloader from working.
