As the photo booth operator, you want to get it right. From shoot to print, your workflow should be fast and efficient. Your setup needs to be functional and rock solid, and you don’t have time for technical difficulties.
Photo Booth Software – Two Solid Options
A photo booth is about fun, not fussing with software or equipment. We recommend two photo booth software programs – DarkRoom Booth and dslrBooth Photo Booth Professional Edition.
The industry standard for event photography software workflow for over 15 years, Darkroom Software will make your workflow seamless so you can concentrate on running the photo booth and the photography. Once you take the picture with your tethered camera, Darkroom will immediately give you a preview on screen to make sure you got a great shot. Then with 1 button, Darkroom software will take it the rest of the way. This could be as simple as uploading the photo to Facebook, or a complex multi-step process. For example, you can set up Darkroom ahead of time to drop out a greenscreen background, add a custom border, send a print package that includes multiple prints and email the photo to the customer or post to social media. Or set up an auto print workflow and Darkroom software will process your photos and produce prints in the background as you shoot. The possibilities are endless.
While there are other programs that are great for editing and enhancing photos, Darkroom is all about workflow – shooting and processing hundreds or thousands of photos in a short amount of time Darkroom software will save you time, money and enable you to execute large profitable events. Easy to use, scalable to any size event, e-commerce friendly and compatibility with leading digital cameras and printers are other reasons to rely on Darkroom software.

IDTechEx Research finds that in 2018 the OLED industry will be worth $25.5Bn, rising to $30.72Bn in 2019.
OLEDs used in mobile devices dominate the OLED industry, comprising of 88% of the market revenue in 2018. These are predominately supplied by Samsung but recent capacity additions come from BOE Display, CSOT, EDO, Tianman and Visionox, all based in China.
The second largest sector is OLED TVs, supplied by LG, which are 8% of the total market by revenue in 2018, but 27% of the market by display area.
The third largest OLED application in 2018 is wearables, which is 2% by market value and 0.4% by area in 2018. The thinness, flexibility and appearance of the display are desirable in these applications versus LCDs.
Additionally, IDTechEx Research concludes that the OLED market will grow to $58Bn in 2025, with the total area of displays being 27.6 million sq meters that year.
The report also assesses the progress of emerging competitive technologies. For example, the impact of the Rec.2020 digital standard for next generation UHD displays are better satisfied by quantum dot (QD) displays. Emissive QD displays are still in development and IDTechEx Research expect the first QD emissive displays to come to market in 2026, at which point the OLED industry will be more depreciated.
In the race to innovate to differentiate, there is rapid progress from glass based OLED displays to plastic based/flexible displays and ultimately foldable displays. In 2017 25.6% of manufactured OLED displays were plastic based. That rises to 35.3% in 2020 with the first foldable displays coming to market then in volume.
Printed OLED displays are still in development the background, with JOLED having launched the world’s first commercial printed OLED display in late 2017 and others – particularly Chinese panel makers – aggressively pursuing research in this area.
IDTechEx Research has assessed the display industry since 2001. This report gives a detailed, impartial and realistic appraisal of the OLED markets and technologies, leveraging the full expertise of our analysts and the direct interviews with companies in the value chain.
