  • Web space for storing the photos and letting visitors download them

[edit] Setup

In this use of the photobooth, visitors could have their pictures taken with Tux, the penguin mascot for Linux. Thus a second person was needed to run the camera/computer.

[edit] End result

Photobooth visitors can scan the QR code or grab the URL to download their photos:
