Flexible Software, Great Support

I've purchased the software and a few of the add-ons like the customizable backgrounds and hot folder. The ability in settings to have a robust interactive workflow, or a trimmed down, stupid simple workflow is great. I've set this up now using an Eye-Fi card pointed to the hot folder, works as a great alternative to a web cam. (But still works well with a solid Logitech webcam too! Also, I had an issue on one of my machines - something between upgrading to Win10 and removing a hard drive in between launching the app caused some problems. IPD was responsive and helpful, which is not only useful on its own, but I've found is indicative of good software companies.

Bug with Sony Wifi camera still not working

I purchased the full package outlining the use of the Sony Wifi camera. After uninstalling too many times to count, the app still is not working properly. This was too much money spent for something that is in beta mode and the bugs have been worked out.

Best Featured Photobooth App For the Price!

When building my DSLR capable photobooth, I looked at ALL of the other options that were out there and I can honestly say that none of them matched the options and quality that InstantPhotoBooth offered at this price. I love the a la carte type of purchasing so that you only pay for the features that you want at the time. The program is easy to use, looks quite sharp, and my users have no problems printing to my 2 Selphy CP910 printers embedded in my photobooth. Though there are a few quirks to the app, I would say that practically all of them are due primarily to how Metro apps work in Windows 8. I'm not sure what problems the people who are giving 1 star reviews are all about and all of the complaints regarding the customer service. I've contacted Thane on multiple occasions offering suggestions for the current build that would make the program better and he has actually implemented some of them!

It randomly shuts down....Not good

The print button doesn't print the pictures... it may be the dumbest oversight ever. The whole thing is useless if the program won't use the default printer with out asking every time. Not professional programing at all. If they can't fix that simple problem they need to refund my money.

Just wish it would print...

I like this app a lot, I like that I was able to design a layout for my sons birthday, but I'm pretty bummed about the app not being able to print to my canon selphy.... kinda bummed I have to print them later, and hand them out, or mail them. But the app and features are great.

Surface Pro 2

Nice app, but the pics taken from front camera are extremely dark no matter what I do. Max exposure, max brightness are the only settings to adjust and yet the image is still very dark. Preview image shows what I would expect - when max settings the preview image is so washed out that barely anything shows, but yet the taken image is STILL dark. Disappointing as I paid for upgrades!!

Top Notch Photobooth App

Great options and functionality! All it needs now is the ability to lockout users with a password from making any configuration changes.

Great App

I use this as my main photo booth software. Love the customization. I hope the add the new layouts to text-o-matic so they are easy to edit. If you have issues tech support get back to you pretty quickly.
