UI for viewing the last taken picture of a connected camera and give the possibility to print it.



  • Hi,

    I have my wedding in two weeks and I want to set up a photo booth. I have the setup done but now I am thinking of a small interface.
    I want to connect a PC or Mac to the camera (Nikon D550) and the printer (Polaroid PoGo). Every time a picture is recorded with the camera, the full screen UI should show this picture full screen (just show the newest picture in a specified folder).
    There should basically only be one big button flowing over the image that says “print” which will then send the picture to the PoGo printer.

    As I am no big programmer, is there anyone willing to help me with this? Would be really awesome :D

    Thank you so much,
    JRS



  • Hey,

    I just made a little research and what I found so far:

    Watch for an added file with QFileSystemWatcher::directoryChanged and printing with QPrinter.
    I will now try to use those classes and see how far I can get.

    I then want to show the file that just has been added to the directory with QImage and QLabel.

    Is there a better way to do this?
    The button should then be a QPushButton with set alpha value.

    I will give it a try :)

    Thank for any comment :P

    Best,
    JRS
