o Output Choice Page - If the output template has only one image you can ask the system to take up to 4 images and then let the user pick the one to be processed

o Output Selection Page - lets the user choose the output method that is desired
o Thank You Page - while the images are sent to the printer or email this page is shown
The Opening Page is the page that the user sees when he or she walks into the booth. It is a required page. The background graphic is defined in the skins sections. The text in the center comes from the program that is selected.
Version 4.0 lets you create image definitions that specify the output. Up to 8 image definitions can be shown on the opening screen. The number of photos taken is determined by the number of images in the output format. All of the pages are designed to be used on a touch screen monitor.
Here are a few more opening screens:
Background Choice Page
The Background Choice Page lets the user select the background image for his session
from all the backgrounds in a folder. The right and left arrows let the user scroll thru the backgrounds.
This page is optional as the image definitions can pre select the background.
Template Background Choice Page
The Template Background Choice Page lets the user select the background image for each image in an output template. If the user wants to change a background they can click on a background and that will bring up the Background Choice page. The use can make a selection and then the selected background is shown on the Template Choice Page.
If the user is happy with the backgrounds then clicking the camera icon will start the session.
Take Your Place Page
This screen gives the user time to get into place before the live view is turned on. The current program detemings how many seconds it is shown. If the time is 0 the screen is not shown.
Live View Page
The Live View Page will show the photo with green screen removed and overlays added. Its look cannot be customized as the locations of the live view images are fixed. The page can show horizontal or vertical images scaled to match the desired output set by the program.
Here is a horizontal image with a background replaced.

The Live View Page will show the image in real time. A countdown box will count down from 9 to 0. The number of photos to be taken and how many have been taken so far is shown on the right. Normally there is no user action on this screen other than to position yourself in the frame of the photo. Sometimes the booth is being operated by a technition and he wants to decide when the photo is ready to be taken. For example if you were takeing photos of dogs. In that case you can select to fire camear manually and a red button will appear on the screen.

Once the green screen photos are taken each high resolution photo is then processed to add the background and overlays.

The background graphic is defined in the skins section. There is no user interaction.
