Note: This tutorial has been rewritten to reflect enhancements ito sharing email from DSLR Remote Pro 3.16

Efficient sharing at busy and large events

Keeping the line moving is a priority at busy and large events.

DSLR Remote Pro shares emails in the background*. Waiting is reduced because there is no need to wait for images to upload before the next session. If internet at the event is poor, DSLR Remote Pro can send any remaining emails after the event.

You can also use the following ways to reduce queueing

  • add a separate sharing station
  • move virtual grafitti to the sharing station
  • use touch free QR code based sharing

Run a sharing station on a separate tablet with Kiosk

Cut down time guests spend at the booth by sharing from Breeze Kiosk . Guests can enjoy browsing, sharing and decorating images  without holding up the line at the booth(s).

Virtual graffitt and sharing

Offering virtual grafitti at a sharing station has several advantages

  • Keep the line moving and reduce queuing at the booth
  • Guests can make, print and share different versions of each photo/print
  • Original is still available to view, reprint and share

Decorating a print in Kiosk

Select and share several images

The Kiosk clipboard can be used to select and share several images in a single email.

Restrict guests to  sharing their own images

At large events and those where GDPR or privacy is a concern, guests scan their unique QR code and display just their own images at the kiosk. More.

Touch free sharing

Another fast way to share emails and texts at large scale events is contactless sharing.

Fast, accurate, touch free sharing station powered by Breeze Kiosk.  Here a selection of photos is shared using the clipboard.  More

QR code based sharing is lightening fast, encouraging all the members of a group to share each session by simply showing their phone to the camera.

Logging email addresses & sharing stats

Guest data collection is hugely important to corporate clients. It’s also important to collect contact details for leads at trade shows and other events.

DSLR Remote Pro automatically records email addresses and phone numbers each time guests share from the booth.

Running the Photobooth Sharing Report collects the addresses and phone numbers into a .csv file which you can view from the app, copy and paste into Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheets.

If you only need the email addresses and don’t want the summary data, you can log them directly into a .csv file to read in a spreadsheet.
