Your Live Feed allows you to easily display a slideshow of the pictures taken with your booth.

Live Feed settings are customized after opening your Live Feed link from your gallery settings.

Feature Availability

With the exception of advertisements, all customizations are available on all software tiers.

Advertisements are available on the Plus, Pro and Select tiers.

Photo Customizations

Number Of Pictures Displayed

Choose how many photos from your gallery will display during Live Feed. Options range from 25 most recently added photos up to 1,000.

This is a great tool for sorting out older photos with permanent installations, where your gallery may have several months or years worth of photos.

Featured Photos

Make participants feel like superstars by calling out each new photo full-screen before continuing your Live Feed.

Photo Transitions

Decide how pictures will animate as they appear on the screen

Refresh Mode

Customize whether the photos in your feed cycle simultaneously or individually.

  • Cascade: All photos in your grid will cycle in a smooth succession, starting with the top left corner and ending with the bottom right corner.

  • Individual:Each photo will refresh individually, starting with the top left corner and ending with the bottom right corner.

Visual Effect

Choose how the photos in your feed appear as they transition.

  • Scale: Photos in your feed will shrink to disappear and new photos expand in their place.

  • Rotate: Pictures rotate or flip into the feed as it cycles through.

  • Slide: Photos slide from left to right into place within your layout.

  • Fade: Pictures fade into and out of place.


The delay tool pauses your feed after the last picture in the grid refreshes, you decide how long the pause lasts.

The delay option that is available will depend on the refresh mode you plan to use.

  • End of Cycle Delay: Available when using cascade refresh mode.

    The cycle delay pauses your feed after the cascade finishes loading all photos in your layout grid. The cascade will begin again after your cycle delay or advertisement(s).

  • Delay Between Photos: Available when using the individual refresh mode.

    The setting will determine how long your feed pauses between each individual photo. We recommend a shorter pause for larger layout grids.

Layout Customizations

Customize your layout to best fit your screen and event theme.

Auto Layout

This option automatically adjusts to the optimal number of rows and columns for your screen size.

Manual Layout

After disabling auto layout, you can choose how many rows and columns to display.

Background Color

The background color allows you to adjust the feed's background. Use a color picker to select any color, or the thumbnails to select one of the colors from your gallery settings.


Advertisements display a full-screen slide between feed cycles. Use ads to highlight your brand or sponsor, shout out a special guest at the event, and more.

Cycles Between Ads

Customize how frequently your ad will play. You can choose to display an ad after each cycle or to show it more infrequently.

Ads Per Cycle

Determine whether all of your ads will play in succession each time advertisements appear on the screen or if they will play periodically one at a time.

Ad Duration

Decide how long your ads will display on screen.

If you are using mixed media, the default duration will apply to JPEGs, PNGs, and GIFs but not MP4s.

Tips & Tricks

Live Feed uses a lot of resources and depending on your customizations, it might test the limitations of the device you are projecting from. If your device is less powerful, keep these tips in mind.

  • Mixed media (i.e., a combination of GIFs, stills, etc.) is not recommended for use with Live Feed.

  • Avoid the cascade refresh mode when using the Rebound layout. Rebound cycling in such quick succession can be difficult to load on certain devices.

  • Using a smaller layout grid and increasing the delay between photos can help things load more smoothly. This is particularly helpful with motion-based layouts like Rebound, and in circumstances where your internet connection is weak.

  • If you’re experiencing a lag in Chrome, try enabling hardware acceleration for your browser. This can be found in Chrome settings under Advanced > System.

  • Close other browser tabs and programs on your device.
