Introduction

This tutorial outlines several ways you can rapidly customize Breeze Booth for iPad screens to create custom interfaces for your clients and reflect your business’ style.

Breeze Booth Event Editor has three simple ways to change your screen backgrounds.

  • Copying and adapting themes
  • Replacing or editing individual screens
  • Combining custom themes and individual screen changes

Creating and adapting themes

Breeze Booth includes a professionally designed theme called Chameleon. Choose this in the Event Creator to quickly build a stylish working system.

Adapting a theme to allow flexible background colors

To generate events whose screens have single color backgrounds use a theme without background.jpg or keyboard_background.png.

Here I have created a new theme called Chameleon (without background).

I copied the Chameleon folder and named the new folder Chameleon (without background). Then I deleted background.jpg and keyboard_background.png.

When designs are created with this new theme, they will have whatever background color I choose in the Event Creator.

My new theme folder is identical to Chameleon, except for the two images I deleted:

Theme folder for Chameleon (without background) does not include background.jpg or keyboard_background.png

When I run the Event Editor’s Event Creator, I can select my new theme from the drop down menu and choose the background color for my screens:

The screens I generated are stored in the screens folder for this event

When I run my new event on an iPad, all the screens will have the same background:

Custom sharing screen

Replacing the theme background with a custom background image

To replace the background in the original Chameleon theme with a seasonal alternative, I can could simply swap out the original background.jpg, or copy it and create another new theme.

Here I have copied the original theme, renamed the old background images and added new images called background.jpg and keyboard_background.png.

I now have three themes to choose from in the Event Creator.

Replacing or editing individual screens

Themes are great when you are working at a high level, but you may find it easier to edit or replace individual screens than create a whole new set.

Here I have used the Chameleon (without background) theme I created earlier, and edited the plain white ready screen to add a discrete client logo. The other screens still have plain white backgrounds.
