This article will guide you through each settings panel in your Classic app.

Classic settings can be found in-app. You can also access your galleries from an online dashboard but cannot customize the settings online.

Step 1: Touchless Mode

Simple Booth supports a touchless mode for a more hygienic experience as long as your iPad supports iOS 14.

Touchless mode allows participants to control the booth through gestures. It includes fewer customization options, which you can learn more about below.

Step 2: Select a Gallery

The online gallery is where your participants can view, download, and share their photos. You'll want to set up a new gallery for each separate event or activation to keep the pictures separate.

Creating a new gallery

Tap "manage galleries," then use the "new gallery" button to get started.

Using an existing gallery

Use the dropdown menu from the gallery panel to select an existing gallery.

Step 3: Start Screen

The photo booth will rest on the start screen between "sessions" with a message that says, "tap to start booth" so participants will know how to get started.

This panel allows you to choose the camera, number of countdown & delay seconds, and whether or not a "get ready prompt" appears.

The get ready prompt shows participants which layout you are using for the booth and how many frames to expect to take.

Step 4: Photo Design

The photo design panel is where we will customize the pictures your booth takes!

This panel is where you'll change everything from what layout type is being used (either motion-based or more traditional), filter effects, crop type, and where you can add a logo to your layout too.

Step 5: Booth Themes

Scroll through our library of pre-made themes for an easier customization option. The themes will add an overlay to your photos and a matching start screen.

We include themes for holidays as well as events like birthday parties and weddings!

Step 6: Colors

Customize the booth's color theme. The colors panel adjusts the background and font colors throughout the participant experience to match your other customizations.

Step 7: Photo Editing & Props

After participants finish taking their pictures, they advance to the edit screen in the app.

As the event host, you'll use the Photo Editing panel to choose which tools will be enabled/disabled in order to allow them to make changes.

Available props include filters, crop, margin color adjustments, digital props, layout changes, frame rearrangement, and GIF speed when the GIF layout is in use.


You will find a Props panel beneath the Photo Editing panel. Use this area to adjust which props appear during your event.

Step 8: Send Options

Decide how participants will be able to receive their picture once they finish their session.

Options include QR code, email, text message (US only), or printing!

Step 9: Save Options

Enable Camera Roll saving for easily-downloadable copies of the finished layouts and individual images.

Step 10: Preparing and shutting down your booth

You will want to take some steps before using the booth to ensure a smooth experience. Then make sure everybody received their picture afterwards!
