• Android tablet or phone
• Standard camera tripod
• Tripod adapter for your Android device
• Party PhotoBooth app
Let's get started!
Step 1: Install Party PhotoBooth
Step 2: Configure Instant Upload (optional)
If a network connection is available when the photos are taken, the photo strips will be posted immediately. Otherwise, they are scheduled to be posted once a network connection becomes available on your device.
Step 3: Enter Kiosk Mode
To exit the app, press & hold the top right corner and enter the passcode you set. If you forget the passcode, power off the device and reboot.
The software setup is done. Let's get to the hardware!
Step 4: Select a Tripod Adapter
For smaller phones, iStabilizer also makes the Mount. The choice of tripod adapter is up to you, you just need to make sure whatever adapter you choose does not cover the camera of your device ;)
Step 5: Put It All Together
Step 6: A Few Useful Tips
2. Background. Wallpapers with subtle patterns illuminated with a spotlight work very well. If you find that at the venue, it will save you a lot of time making a background and figuring out how to stand it up.
3. Signage. It always helps to let guests know what this tablet on a tripod is doing here. Yes, putting a bunch of props beside it makes it pretty self-explanatory, but having a simple sign doesn't hurt. If your photo booth area is hidden at some corner, make signs that point to it or have your MC announce that a photo booth exists.
4. Power. Wouldn't it suck if the battery on your tablet/phone runs out halfway through the event? Keep your device plugged in, recharge it during down times, prepare two devices, or keep one of these portable batteries plugged in throughout the event. I am sure you can figure something out!
