Having An Issue With Your Halloween Photo Booth Backdrops?

We’ve designed the Simple Booth platform to be user-friendly and intuitive to use. But in the off chance you’re running into an issue getting your green screen backdrops set up, here are two resources we recommend checking:

Halloween Backdrops, Overlays, & Props–Oh, My!

Just in case using a Halloween inspired backdrop with your Simple Booth wasn’t enough, take advantage of the props we’ve designed or add your own custom digital props.

In honor of Halloween, we made some especially spooky props. You can find them in the Simple Booth HALO app already. So, the only thing you’ll need to do to use these at your Halloween activation is to select them in the app.

Just navigate to the Props section in the Simple Booth HALO 2 app and click on Browse Packs–it’s outlined in red in the screengrab below and too the left.

On the next screen, select Halloween Party. Then you’re free to select as many as the props as you’d like.

The Simple Booth HALO 2 app has Halloween props preloaded into it.

Of course, the standard props included in the Simple Booth app could all work for Halloween too:

No costume? No problem. Use Simple Booth digital props to dress up for your Halloween photo. Here’s just a small sample of what’s available–there’s even a special Halloween pack as well.

As always, you can add your logo or other overlays to your photos as well. It’s a great way to build brand awareness, plus it takes your social photography marketing strategy to all-new heights.

While you’re customizing your overlays, don’t forget to check out the Halloween themes we’ve created as well. They’re also available in the app. Browse through them in the Themes section and select your favorite.

The themes transform the start screen as well as provide an overlay on the images and GIFs.

Alright, we’ll leave you to it! #HappyHALOween from all of us at Simple Booth! 🎃👻
