Sharing images at large and busy events, touch free sharing and sharing statistics
Updated July 2021
This is the second of two tutorials explaining how to email photo, GIF and video images from a touchscreen photo booth running DSLR Remote Pro.
This first tutorial Emailing images from DSLR Remote Pro Part 1 went through the basics
Emailing images from DSLR Remote Pro Part 2 focuses on efficient sharing at large and busy events, and reporting sharing statistics
Keeping the line moving is a priority at busy and large events. Use one or more of the these ways to reduce queueing
Breeze Hub is a sharing tool which is free for all Breeze customers to use. Hub can send emails and texts sent from DSLR Remote Pro, Kiosk , Webcam Photobooth and Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) in the background. Breeze Booth (iPad + iPhone) also sends background emails directly from the app.
Background sharing means there is no need to wait for images to upload before the next session. If your event internet is poor, Hub can send any remaining emails after the event.
To send your emails via Hub instead of directly from DSLR Remote Pro, adjust these settings in DSLR Remote Pro and Hub
You don’t need to check Log email addresses to file in DSLR Remote Pro because Hub will log them automatically.
If you are using Hub for sharing, it makes sense to change the EmailOffline caption used by the Setup Wizard
Alternatively you can replace the email_offline.jpg image in your PhotoboothImage folder.
Hub is a very efficient program which uses little power to send emails/texts. You can run it in the background on the same Windows device as your booth or sharing station. If you are running multiple booths and/or sharing stations, you may prefer to sync all the images to a single device (at the event or remotely in your office) and send all emails and texts from the same copy of Hub. Sharing and syncing event images
Cut down time guests spend at the booth by sharing from Breeze Kiosk . Guests can enjoy browsing and sharing images without holding up the line at the booth.
Offering virtual grafitti at a sharing station has several advantages
The Kiosk clipboard can be used to select and share several images in a single email.
Another fast way to share emails and texts at large scale events is contactless sharing.
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.
The Statistics tool in Hub can display statistics of sessions and shares from your booths, including
Copy and paste data from the Hub statistics page into spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel to create graphs for corporate clients.
Hub automatically logs the email addresses and cell phone numbers used for sharing. This data can also be copied and pasted into Excel and other spreadsheets.
This is the second tutorial about sharing emails from DSLR Remote Pro, and focussed on sharing emails at large and busy events, and collecting event statistics.
We have seen how Breeze Hub and a Breeze Kiosk powered sharing station can help reduce queueing. We covered background sharing, running a separate sharing station and QR code based touch free sharing.
