Make sure your PC includes the following for best performance:
- Quad Core Intel Core i5 8th generation 2.0 GHz or higher highly recommended. 64 bit processor or
Quad-core AMD Ryzen 5 or greater (2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ or higher)
- RAM: 8 GB (dslrBooth will be able to run with 4 GB RAM. However, it is recommended to have 8 GB RAM because the software is optimized to take full advantage of multiple cores. These optimizations will run better with 8GB RAM)
- Graphics card that supports DirectX 12
- NVIDIA® GPU released in 2016 or later.
- Intel® integrated graphics included in quad-core Intel® Core™ i5 or higher (8th generation or higher).
- AMD® Radeon™ Graphics included in quad-core AMD Ryzen™ 5 or higher (2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ or higher) or discrete graphics card with support for DirectX 12 and at least 1 GB dedicated memory.
- AMD® GPU released in 2016 or later.
- Windows 10 version 1903 (19H1 - May 2019) or greater or Windows 11 with latest updates. Set power mode to Best Performance.
- Display Resolution of 1920x1080 recommended.
- Touch screen is recommended for sharing features but not required.
- 64 bit processor..
Note: Intel i5 Surface Pros 7 and 7+ do not have internal fans. Due to this throttling can occur and cause lag. We recommend using a Windows tablet with internal fans.
- AMD APU processors are problematic in working with high performance multi-threaded applications such as dslrBooth.
- ARM and ARM64 processors such as those found on Microsoft Surface X (Microsoft SQ1/SQ2 processor).
- Intel Atom, Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium and Intel Gold processors are budget processors and are too slow to keep up with the demands of processing high resolution photos from DSLR cameras.
If you have a slower PC, dslrBooth might work for you but it will slower. To get it to run a bit faster, lower your camera settings to the slowest image size and set your template to 300x300 dpi. This should speed up processing.
If you have issues with dslrBooth performance, please run the user benchmark app and email us a link to your results and we can review. We recommend a 2-Core score >= 200 and 4-Core score >= 350 for best performance.
So if I got an AMD processor computer I won't be able to install the software?
Or it will just won't run as smooth as in Intel computers?
Thanks a lot
Regular AMD processors will work. AMD APU processors will not
The software it's looking great but beafore I buy can you please tel me if it's working On Surface Pro 1 (i5, 4gb ram).
It should work fine on the Surface Pro.
What component are key for a good performance.
Would 4x 1333 MHz with 2GB DDR3 be sufficient?
Lisa, we have many customers using windows 10 with no issues. It's likely a driver issue that will get resolved with windows 10 as it time goes by.
Philippe, that will be too slow. Please see specs above.
Hi, I bought dslrBooth when I had windows 8.1 and my computer upgraded to windows 10 and I cannot revert it. It seems to be running with windows 10 but I cannot change the template or settings, how can I fix this?
Paula, make sure dslrBooth is not running in tablet mode in windows 10.
Hi, Please, could you tell me if a INTEL Core i3, 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400 is good machine for this software??
I have similar question as Rodrigo, will it work on Dell Inspiron 11z Touch?
- INTEL CORE i3 4030U Haswell, 4GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400. I just need to use basic photo feature (no greenscreen),graphics over photo and instant print through Wifi.
i3 processors will work but will be slower to process. To get it to run a bit faster, lower your camera settings to the slowest image size and set your template to 300x300 dpi. This should speed up processing.
It says that Atom processors aren't supported but the Surface Pro 3 is. Is the Atom processor on the SP3 ok? I'm confused.
The Surface Pro 3 will work fine. Atom processor will be slower but it'll work.
How would I find out if my computer is AMD APU or regular AMD?
Is this ok for my photobooth? Lenovo IdeaCentre C40-30 21.5" FullHD Touch All in One (i3-4005U, 4GB, 1TB, Nvidia 820A 2GB)
Thank you very much!
We recommend i5. i3 will probably work but will be much slower.
