The standard size for a photo booth strip is 2 x 6 inches or 600 x 1500 pixels. Our photo booths can produce digital images of any size, but for printed images, the two sizes available are 2×6 inches or 4×6 inches. Photo strips come in a variety of sizes. The most common size is 2 x 6 inches (5 x 15 cm) with four individual frames forming the photo strip.
Some machines print three frames, while others print five or six frames in a variety of different frame sizes, often printed as a single 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) photo. Some (often homemade machines) simply take normal pictures instead of photo strips. Consider how you want the final product to appear. Therefore, the following photo booth comparison information below gives details of the differences and similarities between our vintage and digital photo booths.
While both types of photo booths are sure to provide a good time at events. Therefore, the following information can help you decide if a digital or vintage photo booth would best suit your event. If you like the look of our photo strips but prefer them large, take a look at our giant photo strips. By default, vertical or horizontal images are usually too short or too tall to occupy a standard 4×6 or 5×7 paper size.
The forced adjustment will automatically crop each photo based on face detection so that prints have uniform margins throughout the design. Naturally, the larger the photo booth, the more people can fit in each shot, however, you need to consider your place and also that bigger is not always the best. We've worked hard to make the print format as simple as possible in Simple Booth applications while ensuring that your digital photos look amazing. Unless you have a specific need for Adobe RGB or Pro Photo images, make sure that your devices and workflow are configured to work in sRGB.
The closer the print gets to the way you want it to look before you turn on force adjustment, the less you crop your photos to print and the better it works. And depending on the photo booth software you use and the printer you print, there are even more options. Turning on square or circular cropping is an easy win that tends to make photos use page space better. Most photo booths require power, which means that installing a cabin in the local park may be impractical, while a photo booth might work well.
