We all know that photo booths are a lot of fun at parties and functions. However, as our demand for visual media and entertainment increases, we are gradually seeing the rise of a new form of visual media: moving images. To many, photos are just so yesterday. In fact, major social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram all recognise this fact, and have since launched support for animated visual media such as videos and GIFs.
Here at Instantly.sg, we are dedicated to keeping ourselves up to date with this latest trend with our brand new GIF photo booth rental service.
Our animated GIF booth (also known as GIF Photo Booth) will take up to four shots in succession. All these shots will then be merged together to form a looping animated GIF. You can then email the GIF to yourself instantly (#punintended) through our iPad. On top of that, we are bringing this service up a notch by allowing you to get these four shots printed out on a fully customised design template. So all in all, it’s like a photo booth and a video booth combined!
How Does Our GIF Photo Booth Works
Grab a friend or two and strike a pose in front of our backdrop. With our live view monitor in front of you, you can pose and position yourselves accordingly.
Once ready, our friendly GIF photo booth rental assistant will snap three or four photos in succession (the amount is up to you). Automatically, these three or four shots will be merged to form a GIF. You can then proceed to email the GIF to yourself.
Automatically, these three or four shots will be merged to form a GIF. You can proceed to email the GIF to yourself.
Lastly, the three or four shots taken will be embedded on your event’s design printout template, and get printed out instantly for collection.

Frequently Asked Questions
In what format will the GIF be sent over to my guests
Our GIF booth system will automatically convert the GIF file into .mp4 format before sending it to your guests. We do not send over the GIF file in .gif format. Reason being, in most social media websites (such as Facebook and Instagram), they do not accept direct posting/sharing of .gif files. Instead, .mp4 files are more compatible.
