The Bosco's Animated GIF Booth
May 3rd, 2012
It’s with the ease and appeal of GIF technology in mind that The Bosco is excited to introduce the world’s first entirely automatic animated GIF-making photobooth. The GIF booth, already our most popular option, works the same way our other booths do: it uses our 18.1 megapixel camera to take a series of four photographs, the photographs are then animated together into one GIF and uploaded to the web, where they can be shared easily. Users also receive a hard copy of the four images printed instantly on high-quality photo paper. The four-phased photographic process creates a new kind of self-portraiture that allows users to showcase their humor and creativity in photo-linear form. Also available is the incorporation of custom graphics and branding watermarks over the photographic animations.
Animated GIFs have quickly become the most fun way to share images, just like the Bosco Booth is the perfect combination of Polaroid-esque, instant-print gratification coupled with the appeal of long-term digital shareability. Together they extend the moment of an image beyond the event itself.
