    Post Automatically Print (from tethered camera)

    I have My camera Tethered.

    So I shoot, and it automatically Imports and applies a preset.

    Now I want to take it a step further and Automatically Print as well.

    So Basically I want to run Lightroom for a PhotoBooth Event and every time I snap a shot I want lightroom to print Automatically.

    Kind of what this guy did, but making the print automated: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya65P...qGYBIs4tPLLo8Q
    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Hi thealika, welcome to the forum!

    I can't think of a way to do it, without at least some user intervention. You might be able to use something like Keyboard Maestro to automate the mouse movements though.

    Just for information:
    There is actual photobooth software about, the one I have (not for the photobooth function mind),
    is DSLR Remote Pro, which is for Canon, but there are at least a couple of versions for other cameras.
    http://www.breezesys.com/DSLRRemotePro/ (Admins please remove the link if not allowed here).

    The downside to it is, you can't process or edit with it, it's straight from camera to disk and/or printer.

    The upside, which is the reason I got it way back when I had to do a product shoot,
    is just about EVERY standard camera function is remotely controlled, a big plus when doing a product shoot in a light tent,
    well, for my amatuer self that is.
    I did the shoot, and besides the images saving on my card, also sent backups to my hard drive.
    And then Lightroomed them when I got home.

    It looks like Total Folder Monitor might be what you are looking for. Search for it on CoolUtils.com.

    Sorry, didn't look at your specs first. I think this is a Windows util. Try Google with auto print watch folder.

    Do you perhaps know how to "Auto Export"?
    The "Cool Utils - Total Folder Monitor" sound liuke a plan, I have parallels, so its not a problem for me to use it.

    I just would really like to find a way to use LR as it can apply some cool presets i made as well as complex watermarks

    YOu are right about external software for photo-booths. there are plenty out there:

    here is my top 5 list if anyone is interested:
    1. TriPrism TEPS-X - $695 - $1595 (Mac & Win)
    2. PhotoBooth Solutions - $200 - $400 (Win Only - 6 different apps for use with other PB software)
    3. Breeze Sys - $175 (Win Only)
    4. Dark Room Booth - $300 (Win Only)
    5. Photo Boof

    Photobooth Solutions are something very close to what I want, they include some filters, but its still nowhere near what I would like to do, as compared to what Lightroom can achieve.
