The Customization tool should be regarded as the control center of The Incredible Booth software. It has been developed to ensure the simplest and most effective way to customize The Incredible Booth, Custom Green Screen and Custom P.B.O modes of the software. The customization tool is exempt from amending any settings within the GIF Booth or Video Booth, these 2 photo booth modes should be amended by loading Profile 4 through the conventional Breeze Systems DSLR Remote Pro v3.6.1 dialog box. Once open, the Customization Tool will display an array of options and settings which mirror the settings seen and used in Breeze Systems DSLR Remote Pro v3.6.1. Each setting can be customized to suit your individual photo booth setup and an individual client’s requests. Once a setting is amended and customized the value will remain stored within the customization tool and the software until it is either changed to an alternative setting or the Default button is actioned to return The Incredible Booth to its default state.

FONTS, CAPTIONS & OVERLAYS

Fonts & Captions
The Font setting enables the global customization of the font and font size to be applied to the final print. As default, a token entitled {comment} is used within the text field box to enable the user to add a desired message or caption to the print by utilizing the “comments” text field within Breeze Systems DSLR Remote Pro v3.6.1. This is benneficial to the user as it does not require The Incredible Booth software to be re-customised to simply add a small line of text.

Captions
In addition, the captions and comments are pre-programmed to be added to specific locations on each layout excluding the keyrings layout which is exempt from captions and fonts altogether.

Overlays
The custom overlay function enables 5 different custom overlays to be applied throughout The Incredible Booth software. Each custom overlay button is specific to an individual layout allowing unique overlays to be designed and applied to respective layouts. The overlay file must be in a png format and is recommended to be created to the same size as your printer’s resolution. Custom overlays are applied to The Incredible Booth photo booth mode only, Custom G/s and Custom P.B.O photo booth modes are exempt from this feature as they are specifically designed to be used with one off custom designs with custom overlays. Once a custom overlay image has been added to The Incredible Booth it can simply be overwritten or replaced by adding a new image in the same way. Complete removal of the image is achieved by using the Default function or by adding a blank png file to each layout.
