If you're looking to get a custom look, you can use the power of Photoshop to create a custom action that dslrBooth will apply to your captured photos. You can apply any Photoshop actions using a droplet to post-process your captured photo before it's used in a layout or an animated GIF. You can also use any 3rd party image processing software as well as long as it can save to the same filename when it has completed processing.
If you're looking for simple changes such as changing colors or brightness, or contrast, custom filters with LUTs are a better choice as they're much faster to apply and do not 3rd party apps to process each photo.
Using Photoshop Droplet to apply Photoshop action
Open Photoshop to Create Action
- Window > Actions
- Record new action and give unique name.
- Merge layers if needed and flatten image.
- Make sure to record a SAVE step.
- Stop Recording
Make sure to be clicked on the name of the action before exporting.
File, Automate > Create Droplet
- Set: Default Actions
- Action: Action you created
- Destination: Save and Close
- Errors: Log Errors to File > Save As
- Drag and drop a test JPG image to the droplet you just created and make sure your action is getting applied to the test image. If it doesn't work, you'll need to recreate the droplet and troubleshoot in Photoshop until you can get the droplet to modify your test image. If the droplet is still not working with test images outside of dslrBooth, please contact Adobe support for additional help. Unfortunately, there are several reasons why droplets might not work correctly in Photoshop and we're not able to troubleshoot 3rd party software.
Note: the effect must be applied to the original file when creating an action.
Modify dslrBooth Settings
- Settings >General > Effects > Post Processing.
- Click Browse and choose the droplet you saved.
- Click Save.
- Run a session. The photos in the session will have the action applied to them automatically.
