Introduction: Raspberry Pi Photo Booth Controller

Photo booths are fun! They can inspire goofiness in just about anyone.

For my first project with the Raspberry Pi I built a photo booth for a party. This was a great project for learning to tinker with photography and electronics on the Pi. People were happy with the booth, and curious how it was built, so I thought I'd share what I learned.

This project tutorial assumes a very basic knowledge of linux/bash and the ability to solder a simple circuit.

Overview: four main components of the booth

  • Camera, with USB connection and preferably with an AC power adapter and tripod
  • Photo printer
  • Controller, the user interface, with a start button and indicator lights, and a brain of Raspberry Pi, which controls the camera, assembles the photo montage, and drives the printer. This is what I will show you how to build.
  • Booth enclosure, not strictly necessary, but does provide the intimacy essential for maximum fun; best when filled with beautiful women in fabulous dresses

Parts needed for the controller:
Enclosure
Raspberry Pi
Powered USB hub
Electronic components:
GPIO ribbon cable
Perma-proto-board Pi cobbler
LED-illuminated momentary contact switch
LED indicator lights
various resistors
wire for making connections
soldering iron and solder

During setup:
SD card reader
computer to set up the SD card
monitor/TV with HDMI
USB keyboard and mouse

Step 1: Setup RPi

Do you already have your RPi with Raspbian installed and can access it through SSH? Then skip to Step 2: Connect the Camera. Otherwise, grab your RPi, an SD card, an SD card reader, and another computer and:

1) Prepare an SD card with a Raspbian install

2) Boot up and configure
Enable the SSH server during configuration, so you can run your RPi headless, i.e., without a monitor or keyboard, via the command line from a remote terminal.

3) Set up a network connection
Open Midori to test if you are connected to the internet. Then, once you are successfully connected, open a terminal window and type "sudo ifconfig" to get your ethernet IP address; write down this number (something like 10.0.1.19).

4) and lastly, set up SSH
Log in to your RPi from another computer on the network. Now you're ready for the next step.

Step 2: Connect the Camera

After getting your Pi initially set up, get a camera hooked up. You can control most cameras with the RPi using Gphoto2, a well supported, actively updated, free, command-line digital camera controller for *NIX operating systems. Using scripts you can thus automate your camera's controls.

First check to see if the camera you intend to use allows "Image Capture" (under Additional Abilities) by gphoto2

Install gphoto2 from the command line (via SSH on your other computer, or LXTerminal from the RPi desktop)

1) Update the system:

sudo apt-get update

2) Download and run this script, which installs and updates gphoto2:

sudo wget raw.github.com/gonzalo/gphoto2-updater/master/gphoto2-updater.sh

sudo chmod 755 gphoto2-updater.sh

sudo ./gphoto2-updater.sh

3) To ensure your camera mounts properly to be controlled via USB (see this thread), remove these files:

sudo rm /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.gtk.Private.GPhoto2VolumeMonitor.service

sudo rm /usr/share/gvfs/mounts/gphoto2.mount

sudo rm /usr/share/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors/gphoto2.monitor

sudo rm /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor

4) Restart

sudo shutdown -r 0

5) Attach your camera to the RPi with USB and test it out

ls

gphoto2 --capture-image-and-download

ls

Do you see a new file in the home directory? This is the photo that was captured. Yay!

Step 3: Connect the Printer

Now you need a printer. A dye sublimation printer makes decent quality photo prints fairly quickly. I used the Canon Selphy CP900, which I randomly bought at Best Buy for this project without doing much research. Luckily it worked out.

Use CUPS to drive the printer. You can check to see if CUPS supports a particular printer. The Canon Selphy CP-900 is not on that list. I got it working using the SELPHY-CP770 driver (this was the lucky part), which, though it was available through the actual CUPS installation, I do not see on the list linked to above (as of Feb 2014).

1. Install CUPS from the RPi command line (for further guidance/troubleshooting, see here)

sudo apt-get install cups

Add the user (pi) to the group allowed to print (lpadmin)

sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi


2. Connect your printer and setup CUPS from the RPi desktop
Attach to the RPi by USB and power up your printer.

Open Midori and type into the URL line
http://127.0.0.1:631
This will open up the CUPS setup.

Click "administration" and "add printer;" enter your username and password (e.g., the defaults "pi" and "raspberry").

You should see your printer listed under "local printer;" select it and click "continue."

Set the name and location of your printer as you like, and click "continue."

Select the driver for your printer. For me, there was no CP900 driver, but the CP770 driver worked just fine.

Set the default options.

Now you should be done with printer setup.


3. Test printing
Check for active printers

lpstat -p

Do a test print. "lpstat -p" will give you the name of the printer, in my case "Canon_CP900," which was designated during the CUPS setup above. List the files in your home directory by typing "ls." "capt0000.jpg" is the photo previously captured by the camera. Substitute your own printer name and photo capture name into the command to print, "lp"; the -d argument determines the print destination.

lp -d Canon_CP900 capt0000.jpg

Step 4: Build the Electronics

There are three parts for the user interface:

  • start button, lights up when ready for shooting and starts the photobooth process when pressed
  • pose LED, tells the subjects to pose, flashes faster just before the shot
  • please wait LED, lights up while the photos are being processed and sent to the printer, lets the next subjects know they need to wait; necessary so the print queue doesn't fill up and crash the Pi

To me the most exciting thing about the RPi is the GPIO (general purpose input/output), which lets you work with electronics with your Pi.

1) Set up the GPIO as described here.

2) Get the electronics. I used LEDs that came with the RPi starter pack. The lighted momentary pushbutton switch is also from Adafruit. Not very fancy but it all works just fine.

3) Wire the circuit. See the circuit diagram. After breadboarding it up and trying it out to your satisfaction, solder everything together using a PermaProto for Pi. I made the "pose" light a green LED and the "please wait" light a red LED. The "ready to start" LED in the diagram was wired to light the pushbutton switch.

4) Mount it all in a box. I ended up using a cheap enclosure from Radio Shack. I wish I had spent more time on this part of the project, making it look more fancy. I bet you can get more creative.

Almost ready to go! Now we just need to do a bit more prep of the RPi.

Note: the button is based on this useful tutorial.

Step 5: Set Up Full Rig, Download Scripts, Test

1) Connect the printer and camera to the RPi using a USB hub.

2) Make a label for the montage. Name the file "photobooth_label.jpg" and put it onto your RPi in the home directory.
I used Illustrator, exporting a ~110x1100 pixel .jpg, oriented vertically. The words read from bottom to top. I guess you could also use Photoshop, GIMP, or Inkscape.
Upload the photobooth label file to your RPi by opening a local terminal window, change to the local directory where this file is and transfer the file:

scp photobooth_label.jpg pi@10.0.1.19:~

Alternately you could email it to yourself and use the RPi GUI to get the file. Or, with a windows machine, use WinSCP.


3) Get the scripts. On the RPi make a directory for and download three scripts; make them executable.

mkdir -p ~/scripts/photobooth

cd ~/scripts/photobooth

sudo wget raw.github.com/safay/RPi_photobooth/master/assemble_and_print

sudo wget raw.github.com/safay/RPi_photobooth/master/photo_booth.py

sudo wget raw.github.com/safay/RPi_photobooth/master/startup_script

sudo chmod 755 *

Edit the "assemble_and_print" script. Change the "lp" line to include your printer name.

sudo nano assemble_and_print

^X to exit, save the changes


4) Make directories for assembling the montage and archiving shots.

cd ~

mkdir photobooth_images

mkdir PB_archive


5) Install ImageMagik

sudo apt-get install imagemagick


6) Test: try it out and run the script (ctrl-C to quit).

sudo python ~/scripts/photobooth/photo_booth.py

If it's glowing, push the button.


7) Set script to run automatically.
If the step above works, then make the script run automatically at startup. This will be allow the booth to operate without an external computer or network.

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

Now, add the line
/home/pi/scripts/photobooth/startup_script &
above the "exit 0" line
^X to exit, save the changes

Restart the RPi

sudo shutdown -r 0

The script should automatically run in the background.

You can get archived photomontages off the RPi by scp'ing from your local terminal:

scp pi@10.0.1.19:~/PB_archive/* .

Step 6: Have Fun!

To fully deploy the photo booth, you're going to need a party.

As for building an actual booth?  Here's an opportunity for you to get crazy creative.  You can hang some fabric in a corner.  Or here's a good description of how to build one out of PVC: https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Portable-Wedding-Photo-Booth/step4/Frame/  
Don't forget to supply props.
Please comment and let me know how it goes.
Be sure to have fun!

Thank you to Daniel B for inspiration and clueing me in to dye sublimation printers and ImageMagick code.  And thank you to HK, TK, and MM for helping make the booth a total success.

I plan on using this for my wedding next year, but decided to test it at my future stepson's birthday party. I started last minute and ended up running into some issues with the wiring / gpio portion, so for this test run I ran the commands manually.

I found that using mogrify sample instead of mogrify resize saved a bit of time on the resizing of images. It also makes a huge difference in processing time if you start with a smaller image, so I set the camera (Nikon D5000) to take smaller images.

I added a command to copy the original files before resized so they are available for prints at a later time.

For the stand I bought a Cube storage shelf (2 cubes x 2 cubes) from Target and removed the middle divider on the top shelf. This gives me a place for the printer to sit, and with a tablecloth over it allows all the electronics to be hidden.

I tried a mirror for the preview but it ends up being too close / doesn't show as much as is actually in the picture. I had a handheld camera laying around with RCA video out, and a handheld TV and combined those to give a good preview. Another idea I had played with would be a cheap android tablet, put it on the front facing camera, and leave it running. I already had the camera/tv so I did not pursue this.

I attached a little basket to the shelf the printer sits on and the photos fall into it once they are printed (Canon Pixma iP2702). Since I was running this manually, I decided to push the limits a bit - I noticed that CUPS had no issue queing print jobs up for me. At one point I had a job printing, a job qued, and was in the process of taking 4 new photos. At this point the commands to take the photos were running a little slower, but I wonder if the rPi 2 would handle it better. Perhaps making it wait for the printer to be idle isn't necessary?

I did this test run to find ways to optimize it so it's ready / smooth at our wedding. I still need to get the button functioning, and need to figure out how to get the printer to print at a lower quality for faster prints. All I see in CUPS is print quality : Normal or Manual. Manual doesn't seem to make a difference.

Overall, even though I was running the show and had a few hiccups, it was a hit and the birthday boy asked if he can have it again at his next birthday.

What I think I will work on in the future is A - reformatting the layout to use landscape images instead of portrait - it was difficult at time to fit everyone into the frame - and B a way to secure / hide the camera and make the whole project look more finished - without losing the flash on the camera.

As I am a noob in this field, can you please give me a copy of this command ? I think it would be very interesting for me !

thank you !

Perfect tutorial! Everything worked as described. Thanks! I made my photobooth with a built-in printer (Canon Selphy CP800). I got some troubles with finding a working driver at first, but in the end the Gutenprint driver for the Canon MP550 did it for me.

(P.S.: Attention when connecting GPIO on Raspberry B+ or newer, as the tutorial is written for Raspberry Pi A/B which only got 26 ports. So you have to find the correct pins on model B+.)

Pin numbers are the same, as the header counts the same way. Of cause you have to start with pin 1 which is the only one with a square on the pinout. I also used a Pi2 with 40 pin gpio connector.

If you want to use a Pentax DSLR these are not working with gphoto2, so i wrote a pentax version of safay's script. Could be downloaded from

Didn't bother with the printer, so I removed those lines from the script. And changed it to copy the original photos before they are resized. I will upload the photos for enery to retrieve later and I'm now trying to get a slide show to display the pictures. I'm also trying to add a random sound to play just before the camera takes a picture.

It works great so far, my biggest problem is the camera doesn't charge from the USB port so I have the change the batteries every so often.

I was wondering about the need to print. I wanted it to save to an external HD to upload to a Flickr account or something like that. How would I do that?

author
safay (author)gleemonex692015-05-25

Great idea!

Here's a python package that you could use to modify my script:

It uses the flickr API, if you're curious about learning more:

Excellent tutorial - everything worked as described. My 'Vintage Camera' box and tripod houses everything. Added a 'vintage' LED light. Used an illuminated button from an old desktop PC case. Wiring a bit messy but it all works. Camera: Canon EOS 1100D Printer: HP Photosmart. Setting the camera to a lower resolution, setting the printer to high (not Photo) quality and using A6 cut photo glossy paper gives great results and returns the booth to ready status in 90 (ish) seconds. Access via SSH is great but I find the easiest way to change printer settings and get images off the SD card is to use a second Rpi. Also I solved the live view issue - I use a mirror!!

Exactly what I'm going for! Do you have more pictures of the construction process, by chance?

author
safay (author)Lanzaboy2014-06-30

Slick! I love it. Such a cool project!

Do you use a handheld mirror? A mirror is way superior to a video screen for feedback; the latency, especially, is just awesome. I wanted to try to implement a one-way mirror in front of the camera like in the old photographic-paper-style photo booths, but never got around to it. Next time!

author
Lanzaboy (author)safay2014-07-01

Thanks. Yes the latency is way fast and the resolution is beyond 4K! Truth is I dual screen; hand held and freestanding (on a pole).

bdh1976 (author)2014-03-15

Be sure to check that gphoto2 supported camera page lists "image capture" for you camera, otherwise it won't work.

Great point! Edited accordingly; thanks for the tip.

ValentineD1 (author)2017-07-27

Hello !

Thanks for sharing !

Any idea how to replace the gphoto2 command line by a raspistill one to use the picam instead of an external camera ?

My main problem is to give a name to the photo which are taken so the assemble and print command can find the photos...?

Thank you !

Hi @all,

finally my wedding is
over and the photobooth was a great success. As mentioned in some
comments i used a Raspberry PI 2 and a Pentax DSLR, a Canon Selphy cp910
printer and a 63inch (1.6m) tall case for the photobooth. Also a usb3
hard disk drive was used to store all the images.

I also added a
RTC to the Pi as the start date/time was always 1.1.1970 and so all my
additions to the script would not work as they need date and time
correct.

My "buzzer" is a 100mm arcade button with a modded dual
led for red/green illumination of the button. Connected are the casing
and the "start panel" with a standard ethernet cable. All texts are in
german, but as i need to set up the photobooth for an international
wedding again, so i also build an english version.

One photo (the first i hope) showing me, about 3 hours before my own wedding :), installing the photobooth at the party location. Very messy because of the long night of adjustments before. Printer paper was always jamming into the enclosure :(.

What i will change after the usage is the pose led, i have put it into the start panel. It should be in the region around the lense. And i will add a lock, as everyone tries to look inside :(

Safay, many many thanks for making this instructable. It makes my addicted to raspberry too :).

Hey darkman77, I see you are still active ! I wanted to thank you for the improvement you made, EXIF for time, reboot, etc. Its nice to see people sharing. I am a novice at Rpi and python, but I am getting better. I used a Pentax K5 but it never worked with pslr-shoot, i used pktriggercord ultimately. Also I added a QR code in the label with qrencode so the guest can download fullsize pics afterward ! I plan to upload pics afterward or add a function that upload pics via FTP to my site if I have some time... the fun never stops !! :D

My photobooth is still under construction (painting atm), i will post pictures and after.

Many thanks

Hello

Super tutorial. It works great.

Only one problem : the script didn't run automatically. I made exactly what do you said, but when I reboot, nothing. The green led didn't turn on, and when I push the button for the photo, nothing happening.

I made and remade the "7) Set script to run automatically.", but still nothing.

Somebody have an Idea of my problem ?

Thanks a lot

This is simple amazing project. I am in, i just waiting for arriving of photo printer MITSUBISHI CP 80DW. Does anybody try with this printer?

I have one concern: my photoboot will work 24/7.
When the script photobooth.py is in ready status (Ready for next job), CPU on my raspberry is on 50% (python while loop), is there any fix code for this?

MikalV (author)2015-07-30

HI and thanks for a great tutorial! I have a Makey Makey laying around at home so I was hoping to skip GPIO all togethe instead making the script/Gphoto listen for a keystroke, is that even possible?

author
safay (author)MikalV2015-07-30

I haven't used the Makey Makey, but this sounds like a fine idea. To detect a keypress you might try the approach described in this Python docs FAQ here:
https://docs.python.org/2/faq/library.html#how-do-i-get-a-single-keypress-at-a-time

author
MikalV (author)safay2015-08-11

So I dropped the Makey Makey idea and instead went for the GPIO pins. Using Drumminhands python script to take the photos since I'm using the picam but using your bash script to assemble and print, seems to be a lot quicker than using python. My question is: Any idea why the graphics (and images) are 90 degrees off from what you have? :)
Printer is Canon Selphy 910:

author
darkman77 (author)MikalV2015-08-14

When i look at your picture from tumblr, i see you are using your camera in landscape mode. The script expects portrait mode, so you have to turn your camera 90 degrees.

Do you use the cp910 with USB? If so, what CUPS driver did you use? I could not get the cp910 working with usb, only WiFi.

author
MikalV (author)darkman772015-08-17

Hi there and thanks for the reply. I realized that myself as well and did some minor changes. I never got the printer to work with Wifi and decided to go with wifi. Works fine. The booth is really fast at assembling and printing pictures. I guess its down to the smaller size files from the picam. Will do some experimentation with DSLR. I also had a screen to display the pictures and instructions in addition to four leds in the front, around the lens, to keep peopling looking in the direction :)

Attached is a nice shot of me and mylady the morning after our friends wedding.

Dear Safay, my compliments for the great work, this looks amazing!!! i'm building it right now for my wedding. I have an issue which i kindly ask you and anyone willing to give me an hint to resolve it. Issue: after installing gphoto2 i go to remove the 4 files which prevents the camera detection (eg. sudo rm /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.gtk.Private.GPhoto2VolumeMonitor.service) but i can't find them. the same goes for the other 3 files. I can't understand what's wrong. I updated the system to latest version with apt-get update... anyone has an idea? Thanks a lot Emanuele

Great guide! I made it with a twist.

RPi photobooth automatically uploads photos to Google Drive with Google URL shortener for quick, direct guest access to each set of pictures using my fork: https://github.com/sojojo/RPi_photobooth

Using: Raspberry Pi, USB WiFi, controller described in this instructable, Nikon D3100 camera (compatible with gphoto2 - other models will work as well).

Requires use of a monitor to retrieve the link to the photos, as is. Someone fork mine and make a proper GUI!

Hi. Firstly I found that this was a good tutorial to follow with. I managed to build the photo booth according to your tutorial, and I am very happy that it was work. But what come to my concern is, is there any way that we can display the live view of the dslr on the monitor by using the same concept as your tutorial?

Nilsemann (author)2016-08-15

Thanks for sharing this Project. I changed my former Photobooth from an Arudino+iPad solution to an Raspberry with Touchscreen option. No printing option.

The setup is simple, push the button, photo will be made and displayed. And this is my problem at the moment? How can I display the last photo taken on the display? I use a CLI Python script at the moment. Any idea?

Thanks for a great and well-written tutorial! Here is my version of the Photobooth.

I made some tweaks, the biggest change was to add one extra button + led. It is used to restart the Photobooth if the camera goes into sleep mode. You can read about it here:

I'm trying to make this but running into some issues on my Pi2. I got everything connected, tested the camera and printer and they worked. Wired everything up. LEDs don't work....hmmmm. Pressed the button and it takes a picture..... and then it hangs. Not sure what else to try, I posted more details on reddit below. Any help is appreciated!

Hi all!

This project looks awesome!
I'm trying to show the photos using fbi command, but I cannot set the correct filename due to fbi does not recognize %H%M%S.Jpg

How can I implement this?

Sorry for my bad English :(
