Hot Folder Printing
Hotfolder Prints monitors a folder for incoming images (jpegs and PNG’s), then automatically formats them for printing, saving and/or emailing. Images can be sourced from a tethered camera, a cloud drive (Dropbox etc), shared network folder or a folder on your PC. Ideal for event photographers (real time, onsite printing), photo booths (reformatting for slideshows, sharing, printing) and photographers (batch processing of images).
Real Time Galleries
The SmugMug and Gallery Uploader tools automatically create galleries and upload images, GIFs and mp4’s in real time, to: SmugMug, Hula Gallery or Photobooth Online Galerie. For advanced users, upload to your own custom made gallery system using POST.
Live Feed Slideshows
Use Breeze Viewer to run an auto updating, live feed slideshow of your images and GIFs. Run advertisements at preset intervals, apply image sharpening, image transitions and color effects. Pair it with Hotfolder Prints to create slides with multiple images and layouts.
