Welcome to Salsa!

Salsa's photos are organized into Events. Events are albums you will create for every different event you bring your Salsa to.

Each event you create can be fully customized to make your guests feel like guests of honor. 🌟

Let's start up a sample event using these easy to follow steps.  That way, you'll be a Master Event Planner before your next big event. RiRi herself will call you up before the next Met Gala* for sure.

Set up a new Event

First things first.

Launch the Salsa Booth app and tap on “Create Event”. Give your event a name and tap on Create Event. Fun fact: Guests will not see the name of the event. Feel free to name it anything you like.


Add an Event passcode

To add a passcode, tap on the gear icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and then tap on Passcode.

Enter a 4-digit passcode and type it again to confirm.

Use 1-2-3-4 as a passcode if you are cool with Kevin from HR hacking into your iPad at that corporate event next month. (Please, do not use 1-2-3-4 as your passcode.)

When you’re finished, tap on the arrow in the top left-hand corner to go back.



Event settings

To access your event’s settings, tap on the event. Then hit the gear in the top right hand corner - those are the event settings.

Select your desired capture modes

Tap on Modes to choose the capture modes you want to use.

Tap on each mode to enable it, and tap again to remove it.



Add an overlay

An overlay is the transparent image that sits on top of the photos (and other content) that you take. This is a great place to really customize your event - you can put branding, guests' names, and anything you can dream up as an overlay! For extra magic, you can also add a unique border around the image.

Tap on Overlay, then tap the Add Overlay text to add an overlay to your event's photos.

You can choose from existing overlays you’ve already added to Salsa Booth, or from photos on your iPad.

Be extra, triple, super sure this file is 2048 pixels wide by 2732 pixels in height, and in a transparent .png format. 

Once you’ve selected the overlay you want, tap on Select to choose it. Don’t forget to enable it!




Adjust your share options

Share options are found under Sharing (because we like keeping it simple). You have a number of sharing options you can choose to enable, including Email, SMS, AirDrop, and AirPrint.


Customize the guest interface

Customizing the guest interface is a great way to make your event shine bright like a diamond - in some ways, quite literally (those LEDs are pretty bright)!

You can customize the background (choose a pre-installed option, or use one of your own!), pre-background (what guests see before they start), and LED branding.

You can even customize the countdown duration (how long a guest has until their photo is taken) in case you want to move through the lines faster.


Starting and exiting an Event

Starting an event is easy.

On the main event screen, tap on the “Start Event” button.

To exit an event, tap twice in the top left-hand corner of the screen and enter your event passcode. From here, you can view a quick gallery of the photos from your event, or head back to the main dashboard.





Don’t forget to turn Guided Access on when you’re ready to start the real event!

Triple-click on the Sleep/Wake button to toggle Guided Access on or off.

On the 2nd generation iPad Pro, triple-click on the home button.

You're all done! 

Now you're a pro at creating new events. When RiRi calls, tell her we said hi.

*This probably will not happen. Sorry.
