Like magic, but more hygienic. The complete photo booth experience without touching the booth. Touch free booth software takes and shares photos, burst and slideshow GIFs without attendant or guests touching the booth.
Instead, guests use a unique QR code generated on their smart phone to control the booth and share images. This QR code can be generated in several ways
This tutorial explains how to make the Breeze contactlessbooth.com web page your own, and how to use the free banner designs kindly provided by 6 Figure Photobooths

This tutorial explains how adapt contactlessbooth.com to make it your own, and takes you through
Just to be clear. You don’t have to brand the contactless booth screen, it works straight from the box. You can
This is the basic screen displayed on a smart phone:
Read on and learn how to transform this screen for your own business and events.
First add some graphics. Your business brand, your client’s logo, a theme for the event. Use different graphics for each event if you choose.
You don’t need to use your own graphics, you can choose from the set we host. Caroline Winata (6 Figure Photobooths) has generously created a set of 16 banners for Breeze customers to use with contactlessbooth.com, which you can find here
To use your own banner, you need to add a parameter to the original webpage url
Look carefully at this url https://contactlessbooth.com?banner=https://contactlessbooth.com/banners/banner3_1.png
(I have used four colors to make this easier to understand. You don’t need them.)
To use your own banner, you need to host it on your own website. Then simply replace https://contactlessbooth.com/banners/banner3_1.png with the location of your banner.
To change the title use a different parameter called title. Add the title SuperBooth like this:
See for yourself https://contactlessbooth.com?title=SuperBooth
There are a few annoying details (aka URL encoding) when titles include spaces and special characters. These are the most common:
To remove the title, you need title=%20
Don’t worry about guests typing out or seeing these urls – they won’t need to! I will cover this later.
Put a question mark ? before the first parameter, and an ampersand & before any extra parameters
We have covered the more complicated stuff now, the rest is a romp in the park…
To allow the QR code to have two email addresses, use a different parameter called cc
Adding a custom background image is similar to the way you add a banner.
The parameter for a background image is bg and you need to host the image on your own website. For example
If your background is dark, you may need white text to contrast. The parameter for this is dark
You can combine any of these parameters together.
Remember to use a question mark ? before the first parameter, and an ampersand & before any extra parameters.
Nobody wants to actually see https://contactlessbooth.com?title=I%20Branded%20this%20Screen&banner=https://contactlessbooth.com/banners/banner1_1.png&cc&bg=https://contactlessbooth.com/background.jpg

QR codes are back with a vengeance since Apple let iPhone cameras read them without downloading an App. You may not want your guests to see a url at all. Consider converting the URL to a QR code, and have guests scan this code.
You can share QR codes by email and MMS, print them on badges and signs, add them to your idle screen…
QR code generators such as QRCodeMonkey will create unique QR codes from the URLs above. Show or share the QR code with guests, who scan to see your custom QR code generator.
The 3 QR codes below were generated using QRCodeMonkey. They all take you to the same place, but some are simpler than others to read. Check your own QR codes scan well the way you you plan to use them.
I would love to see how you transform contactlessbooth.com into an attractive entrance to your events. If you are up for sharing, do email an example to firstname.lastname@example.org.
