You can transfer your custom images onto the device via iCloud, by emailing them, or through File Sharing in iTunes.

Emailing Images
Email your attached images to be received on the device. Open the email on the device, tap and hold on the image to get a popup menu that will include the option Save Image. When you select this option, the image will be saved into the Camera Roll or Saved Photos on the device.

Once you have your images on the device, tap the Kiosk button on the main screen, and tap the Customize button. Select the Custom Images tab. The images currently in use are displayed. To change an image, tap the Select Image button next to the image you wish to replace. Choose the image from your Saved Photos. Tap Save to save the settings.

Your Images using File Sharing
To change images using File Sharing, connect your device to your computer, open iTunes and select the device name, then navigate to the Apps tab. Scroll to File Sharing at the bottom, and click on Attendance in the list of apps. You can drag your replacement files directly to the area labeled Attendance Documents.

Image Sizes
Custom images must be in PNG format when uploading via File Sharing and must meet exact specifications, or be rejected by the app. Refer to your device-specific image dimensions in the Customize Kiosk > Custom Images screen.

Image Naming
When transferring images with File Sharing in iTunes, your files must be named exactly as follows to be recognized by the app:

  • Portrait Background: backgroundPortrait@2x.png for retina display, backgroundPortrait.png for non-retina display.
  • Landscape Background: backgroundLandscape@2x.png for retina display, backgroundLandscape.png for non-retina display.
  • Attendee Top Form: formtop@2x.png for retina display, formtop.png for non-retina display
  • Attendee Bottom Form: formbottom@2x.png for retina display, formbottom.png for non-retina display
Right-click on the thumbnails, below, and save images to your downloads folder for a layered .psd template to help create your own background, using the template as a guide for optimal placement of your logo.

Once you add custom images, they will override the equivalent theme images until the custom ones are removed. Remove the custom images by tapping the Remove All Custom Images button located on the Custom Images tab, or delete them from File Sharing in iTunes.
