Default Settings vs. Edit Tools

All participants initially capture the same type of picture, based on the selections you make in your Photo Design Panel.

Enabling edit tools gives participants more control over the final appearance of their image. After capturing their picture(s), the app automatically advances to an edit page.

The edit page always includes a retake button in case anybody wants to start over, and it will also include whatever edit tools you choose to enable.

How To Enable Edit Tools

From your preset settings online or in-app, open the settings you are working on and scroll to your "Photo Editing" panel.

Click or tap the "Manage Tools" button to pull up the Edit Tools picker. Click (drag or tap in-app) or use the arrow icons to activate or deactivate different tools. Tools under the “available tools” column will be available during the event.

Drag & drop the tools to reorder them. The first tool in the list will be selected by default when the edit page loads.

How To Configure Edit Tools

Certain edit tools can be configured to a greater extent depending on your plan. When further customization options are available for an active tool, an "Edit" button will be available from the Photo Editing panel (to configure in-app, tap on the active tool instead).

Certain edit tools have their own panel that can be used for configuring, too.


Props

Availability

Special Event and Lite plans; Simple Booth Classic

Choose from a variety of free prop packs.

Standard and Pro plans

Choose from a variety of free prop packs, or create your own custom props. Props are unavailable for the video layout.

Configuration

There are two ways to set up your props. Custom prop packs must be configured before they can be enabled from your preset settings (learn more above).

  • Use the Photo Editing Panel's button to access a list of all the available props. Move individual props to the "selected" column in order to enable them.

  • Find the Prop Panel (below the Photo Editing Panel) in order to browse by prop packs.

    Tapping a pack will open a preview of all the props belonging to that pack. All props will be pre-selected by default -- disable any props you don't want to include (by clicking or tapping) before saving, or backtrack to preview another pack's props.

Tips

  • Consider limiting to 1-3 tools per event. When too many edit tools are available, it can feel overwhelming and might result in longer session times at best or confusion at worst.

  • Incompatible edit tools will be automatically disabled:

    • Rearrange and Layout are unavailable when the single-frame or video layout is selected as the default layout (there would be no frames to rearrange or choose between).

    • GIF speed is only available when the GIF layout is selected (not compatible with Live GIF).

    • Props are disabled from the participant experience ("Booth Mode) if the software can't detect at least one face in at least one frame.

  • If you have graphics uploaded to a uniquely-sized layout (e.g., a 1x4 photo strip), it is a good idea to limit guests’ options to other layouts that are similar in size (e.g., other photo strips) so that those graphics don’t become distorted.
