Hi,

I'm looking for a program that would automatically print photos after the "FX PhotoKey Pro 4" software proccesses the green screen images. I've used Breeze Systems "HotFolder Prints", but I was wondering if anyone knows of a less expensive alternative to this program.

The photo printer is $29 and dose a lot more then all the other programs i have found also the photo workflow is a must have program with it you can save extra copys into other folder all auto and save the done green screen image to back up folders and even send the all done image to another networked PC that is running Breeze slide show to show customers.

We do Green screen every day and use this set up and it works 100%

With the Photo printer software you can set up as many printers as you want and back up files with it to.
I print to a Sony for 5x7s. A DNP for 8x12s and a Canon largeformat printer set up for two settings one for 16x24s and one for 24x36.
I export out of Photokey into any of the set up folders and thats it it starts printing. I can be printing to all the printers at the same time.
