What is a Virtual Photo Booth

For years, photo booth has offered its guests the chance to capture one (or multiple) snapshots that can be printed out or shared digitally onto social media platform.

Same goes with a Virtual Photo Booth: guests will take photos and these photos are placed into pre-selected layouts, and receive their branded images digitally framed. These frames/filters are usually designed by the event organiser that aligned with the theme of their event.

The only difference is that the camera is not placed at a crowded event or venue, but in the lens of their smart devices. Regardless if whether the guests are physical or virtually at the event, thousands of people are able to capture their experience at the same time. Virtual webinars, conferences, live events or even weddings, the virtual photo booth has a role in it.

Not techy enough? How about adding an AI background removal option? This means your guest can take any photo in any messy background and the background can be replaced with fun backgrounds using our AI background removal technology (without any green screen).
