How to Use the Virtual Photo Booth
How do I use the virtual photo booth?
1. Open the virtual booth link in any internet browser. You can use a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone! (Google Chrome is the browser we recommend)
2. The first time you visit the photo booth page (virtual.theselfiespot.com), it will ask for permission use your device’s camera, click/tap “Allow”.
3. Choose your photo type and tap Capture to take your photo (or upload a photo).
4. If you like your photo, click Approve. You will then be taken to a page to choose a background to appear behind you!
4. Tap Email to send the photo to an email address. Or Text to receive the image to your smartphone. If you prefer to start over, just refresh the screen!
Please note: your photo will only be saved to the event gallery if it’s Approved (see step 4) . Otherwise, it will not be stored!
How can I retake a photo?
Just tap the Back arrow at the top left of the screen or refresh the page, and you’ll be taken back to the start screen!
How can I download or save my picture?
You’ll need to visit your event gallery or share your photo by email or text message to receive a downloadable version.
Where are these photos stored? Who will see them?
Each event has its own photo booth link. Only those with access to your unique link can take photos. Photos are stored in the event’s online gallery and/or shared with the event organizer. Your event organizer may or may not have chosen to share the event gallery with event attendees.
After your photo/GIF is taken, you’ll be given the choice to Approve or Retake your photo. If you hit Approve, your photo will automatically be saved to your event’s gallery. If you’d like to retake or discard a photo, just click Retake or refresh the screen. That photo will be automatically deleted permanently and there won’t be a way to retrieve it.
How can I view the event photos? When will the photo gallery be available?
Your event organizer may or may not have chosen to display the photos from your virtual photo booth in an online gallery. If there is a photo gallery, it will either be available directly on the photo booth page or within 2 business days after the event at gallery.theselfiespot.com (unless other arrangements have been made). Please ask your event organizer for the gallery password, if there is one.
I accidentally blocked camera access, how do I fix this?
You’ll have to reset the camera permissions in your browser’s settings.
Chrome Menu (3 vertical dots) > Settings > Privacy and security > Site Settings > Camera
Click “virtual.theselfiespot.com” and select Allow
Safari App Menu > Settings for the Website > Preferences > Websites > Camera
Select “virtual.theselfiespot.com” and select Allow
I am seeing the following error "Unable to access camera'". How do I fix this?
Please ensure that there are no other programs or apps open that are accessing your device’s camera (e.g. Skype, Zoom, Google Meet, Webex, Microsoft Team, etc.). It’ll be best to close those programs or switch off the camera in those apps before attempting to launch the virtual photo booth.
You are always able to use the photo booth from a different device (i.e. smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc). Just paste the photo booth link in your browser. If you need the exact link, please contact us or ask your event host!
