Comments about Darkroom Software Booth 2 (Download):

I purchased my Mac Pro just so that I can start my own photobooth company. Just to find out that being a MAC user this isn't something that you would want to do with such an expensive device. I downloaded this software to test the device out but it wouldn't work. Thats when I noticed that you can only use this software with Windows.

    Comments about Darkroom Software Booth 2 (Download):

    We use Darkroom Booth on our PCs. Wish we started with it!

    This wasn't our first software. But it will be the last. Once we realized what our strengths were (selling) and our weakness (graphics), we found Darkroom. We are graphic artist wannabes. We were so close to buying AND learning photoshop, but guess what? Darkroom Booth 2 is a drag and drop editor. We customize every layout and all of the screens the guests see and we still spend less time and effort than we did just designing the layouts with our original software. We have never used the same print layout or screens since we moved forward with Darkroom Booth. Clients LOVE personalization.

    Also, the way it organizes files, it is a cinch to transfer the graphics we create on our office computer to the booth computer/s. We used to sdesign directly on the booth computers, that was cumbersome and meant we had to be where the booth was. Now, we can do the backend work from anywhere!

    These folks are rolling out new features practically faster than we can learn them. Thankfully, the publisher has great communication with the users to spoon feed the latest and greatest to make sure we know how to use everything!

    Training/tech support is via LIVE human beings who speak English as a first language, you tube videos and a very active FB forum.

    Green screen is easy. I mean, really, really easy. Just playing with my laptop in my living room, the software keyed out my house plants. My other software involved tweaking during testing, then again at set up, then again as lighting would change during an event. Darkroom Booth 2 is a relief!

    Printer drivers are built into the software so you don't have to use the same port every time.

    Sure wish we would have started with Darkroom Booth 2, but I don't know if we would have known how truly powerful it is.

      I setup this software with my MacBook Pro using Bootcamp. I called Darkroom Software and they said yes it would work. After installing everything, yes it indeed worked at my house. Everything was perfect... Until I took the whole setup to the wedding where this photobooth was to operate. I set up everything just like I did at home, and what do I get? Error. Darkroom Booth kept wanting to go online and connect to a server or whatever the error was. No matter what I did, I could not get the software to just open up and print to a printer connected through a USB cable. No matter how many times I kept telling the software that the printer was physically connected to the computer. Error error error. Software would not let me take a picture and print it. Error and closes out software. Utter junk.

      This software made me and my company look like fools, amateurs, so buy and use at your own risk.

        This product is easy to use and setup. Customizing is very easy and works great. I can use my DSLR camera and able to add and use push buttons. I use a touch screen with this product and it is awesome. This product also can do video recording.
