Please refer to the following guide created by the manufacturers of Social Booth, the software we utilize in each and every photobooth! This explanation can be found at their support website also!
If you have a Surface Pro 4, the printer tweaks should be the following:
- Auto Print
Enable this to have photos automatically print when the session is complete.
- Auto Print Copies
This is the number of copies of photos to print when auto print is enabled.
- Enable Print Button
Enabling the Print button will show the print button on the Share screen along with the upload options.
- Max # Prints to Choose
Settingthis to anything greater than 1 will show the user a dialog box asking them how many copies of the print they want. The number set here will be the maximum number of prints they will be allowed.
Max # Prints/Event
This allows you to disable all printing after a certain # of prints have been reached. Leave this set to 0 for unlimited prints unless you plan on limiting the # of prints at the event.
Max # Prints to choose
This allows the guest to increase the number of photos per session. The count will not continue to increase past the max number listed here.
Rotate Print 90
This will rotate the print by 90 degrees before printing.
Require Share to Print
This will require a user to share the photo to social media, email or SMS before they can print. The print icon will be transparent (like in the screen shot above) until the photo is shared.
Print 1/2 # copies
This feature is useful if you are printing strips where 1 4x6 usually ends up getting cut into 2. When this is enabled, when a user selects 2 copies, only 1 4x6 will be printed, and it is assumed the printer will be cutting it into 2 copies for the user.
This will display in the window after the guest hits the print button.
It shouldn't be necessary to change these values, but if you can't get the photo to print properly, adjust the scale and the margins in small increments so you can see the effect. Please be aware that these are the Printer Tweaks for the Surface Pro 3.
If you have a Surface Pro 3, the printer tweaks should be the following:
- Left Offset: 24
- Top Offset: 0
- Scale: 1.48
However, if you have a Surface Pro 4, the printer tweaks should be the following:
- Left Offset: 39
- Top Offset: 30
- Scale: 1.96
