Last week we told you about the new photo booth software release from the developers at Photo Party Upload. This week, we want to share a little bit about what you can do with it.
The best place to start is with the photo booth bread-and-butter: Green Screen. Photo Booth Upload takes green screen to a whole new level with an easy-to-use interface and “Smart-Placement Technology” that automatically places the guest in the correct location so they can link arms with the Scarecrow in Wizard of Oz or ride alongside Batman in the Batmobile.
All you need is a green screen, a DSLR camera, a JPEG to use as a background image and a PNG to use as an overlay and the software does the rest. It’s simple to load in your images and you can even create more than one green screen set-up, so guests can choose between the Scarecrow or Batman. Once your set-ups are created, you have full control over the keying threshold/color, contrast/saturation, placement/size and can choose from a wide range of customizable photo filters for a final touch.
Maybe you’re a fan of green screen but you’re tired of still images and want to get your guests moving – no problem, just turn on Green Screen Video. The set-up process is similar to Green Screen Photo but instead of a background JPEG, you upload a background video. You can even include an audio track if you want your guests to dance with a group of animated penguins.
Another option for movement would be to switch over to the Animated GIF option. This also incorporates the green screen technologies so your guest can be magically transported to Oz or Gotham. The settings allow you to choose how many photos you want to take and if you want the background to animate along with your guest, you can upload a different JPEG for each frame of the GIF. You can adjust the look of your GIF by adjusting the frame rate and choose if you want to export it as a GIF or as a video, which of course the guest can then share on their social media platform of choice.
