Best photo sales during this summer on the Rosskopf in Sterzing by Liftpictures …
..with several hundrets of sold phoths each day – each for 5 €. Caused by the optimal set-up of the self service machine in front of the Sunkid toboggan run exit nearly nobody can pass this without buying his perfect souvenir at the self service booth. The payment can be done by cash (coins and papermoney) or cashless (2024).
This also is a good example for the long-live qualitys of our systems and our service:
Our customer started his photo-business with our system already 2015. During the last 8 years he used it at his different attractions in the summer- and winterseason, continously updated and serviced by us – last update was in July 2023.

The actual EasyCam system from Liftpictures is able to show 3 different outputs from one machine/software: The acutal selling dialog, the presentation screen and the leaderbord.
From this a customers review:
“We decided against Liftpictures almost 10 years ago and started with a competitor, even though the investment was several times what Mr. Nolting was offering us at the time.
After the first good years, however, the service got worse and worse, so we had to carry out numerous repairs ourselves in recent years.
Then in the summer of 2023 it was finally over:
A visit from the service staff cost €3,000 and was broken off without a successful repair, passwords and technical documents could no longer be found at our supplier, contact persons have been eliminated and remote maintenance is not possible, despite an internet connection.
Although our summer toboggan run in 2023 is again very well attended, we were no longer able to sell any photos.
Then we remembered the company Liftpictures.
The rest is quickly told:
The contact was made at the end of July 2023, the delivery and assembly then just 2 weeks later!
Since then, we’ve been back in business without a hitch, at a fraction of the cost before.
Advice, keeping promises, documentation and service – everything is great and definitely recommended!…”
Thanks! says Marvin Wittmann from the giant slide in Enzklösterle on August 22, 2023

Winter with Liftpictures photo systems
Posted on 9th of Dec 2022 at 12:43 PM
End of season for some….
in the “lowlands” and review of a very successful photo season with a Liftpictures photo system.
For our alpine customers, now the work begins (and earning money really starts:
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year into 2023 – may this spare us from further crises and instead be stable and successful in terms of health and business!
Posted on 18th of November 2022 at 17:43
… the guest, the operator laughs!
At least if the passenger buys his photo at the self-service machine directly at the exit, and thus ensures more income without additional staff. Perfect for any ghost train, roller coaster, looping train… etc.
Whenever photography has to go fast, no additional staff or the stand space for a photo booth is available. We will be happy to advise you, without obligation and competently.
Whether in ghost garb or in street clothes

This is the 196th camera with separat flash, of course at a tobbogun run, of course with flash, speed measurement and self service sales machine.
Posted on 9th of July 2022 at 09:17
Because of the additional credit card payment system (behind the existing cash devices for coins and paper money) our customers could increase further more their income with our self-service terminals. This almost reduce the payback time to several months (in this example the investment was only 40T Euro, the income in one year more than 100T Euro)

FunFotobox with speedmeasurement
Who dont want to buy his funny speed photo at once (15 sec) and get back change money?
Stabel – simple to use – no extra stuff needed – easy to calculate:
Each day about 15% of the runs buy a photo; regular sell price is at minimum 3 Euro; the material is only 0,09 Euro/photo.
This little investment from about 30.000 Euro has normally a payback time less than 3 months.
Futher modules like paper money checker, cashless devide and receipt printer are available.
Posted on 07 March 2022 at 12:29
New: Slide camera with speed measurement Stainless steel lasts forever and brings fun and profit.
This is known not only at Wiegand, but also at Liftpictures Fotosystems.
Who wants to do without his great speedster flash photo for only 3 €, paid immediately and – even with money change – taken with him?
Per slide, this results in a contribution margin of approx. 50 cents each run (material 0.9 euros, sales price 3 € per photo, 20 % purchase rate),
and thus contributes to the added value of the total investment, while the use of the slide is free for guests.The additional investment of around 30T€ for the photo system is therefore payed back within one season.

FlyLine with onride-camera and self-service terminal
Our machines can be used stand-alone or interegrated as a wall mount system.
Nevertheless the functions are equal: choose photos, pay (cash or cashless) and print.
So this installation requires a minimum of stuff, as it sends daily statistic mails and in case of soon missing photo-material or change coins alert mails to the customers admin.

More projects “behind the camera”
Corona generates ideas: So we could generate more projects of picture/video analysing during the last months. Now we can offer a new modul to control/count the number of visitors based on MPEG4 / H264 straeams (so already existing camera installations can be used) . With this you logg each camera the counted objects (different kind of objects are choosable or trainable), for each defined time- and square section. The software can alos generate alarm messages in case of more detected objects than defined limit. This can help running visitors attractions during corona-times.
Posted on 27 Jan. 2021 at 12:14
Extension of our software modules:
We have expanded our range of functions through new projects and software modules in the field of image analysis. Talk to us about sample analyzes and references if you are planning other tasks than merchandizing and / or social networking “behind the camera”, e.g. documenting, checking, measuring, reading, counting and object recognition in the departments
- security (access and parking lot control)
- quality control
- traffic monitoring and evaluation
And the best: Ready-to-run packages makes it easy and cheap to ship worldwide – also during Corona!
Posted on 07 Dec. 2020 at 14:22
Record sales in November 2020 on the Titlis After further updates to the Liftpictures system, the franc “rolls” surprisingly well despite Corona at one of our self-service summit stations, topping all sales of our customers in D-A-CH this year.

- Photo print in 25 x 30 cm; with or without a QR code
- the QR code separately
After scanning the code, the guest can access his photo directly using a smartphone; to download, mail or post: see here
Posted on 9. Oct. 2020 at 17:12
most successful this season:
The Wiegand Coaster in the most north of Germany – on the island Rügen.
Several reasons caused this record of selling pictures – although corona:
1. the top quality of the pictures, the stable installation and the very easy handling – of the Liftpictures photo system.
2. the very good designed and well positioned elements of it: monitors at kassa and entry, signed camera with flash on the run, self-service terminal at the exit, and – last but not least – the post card selling point at the kassa again – including stamps and post box!
So each guest is animated to run again and agian and agian – on the search for the best photo AND the daily/weekly/monthly record of the measured speed!
Hochkönig – Top Design & Top Result!

The self service photo installation in Saalfelden is the winner of the design award – for the best labeling of the FunFotoBox.
Working since 2005 to replace the existing old and not winning rental erlebnisfotos-system, the robust Liftpictures metall case was redesigned often by our customer – but as now it looks perfect:
This machine was the first with the new developed Liftpictures software; it offers:
- quick sales – up to 4 photos/minute
- operating by touch screen – with 2 languages and sound animation
- independent control of a separate presentation screen
- daily closing / receipt printing by receipt or email
- exception messages in the ticker (eg “paper stock in 45 photos exhausted – please notify staff ..”) or as an email
- integrated pay-/changing system for 6 kinds of Euro coins and 3 kinds of Euro paper money
- option: booth camera with selftimer, live picture and flash, personalizing by rfid reader; Social Media
- New: RFID credit card reader available
New attractions for amusement parcs..

. .are needed for their business developemt – also in times of Corona, although if those can cause investments from around 2 Mio Euro.
Only 1 % of this budget is needed for a Liftpictures Onride Camera System including a self service selling station; but with this daily income up to 500 Euro are possible – without any extra stuff.
Thats makes sense – also in times of Corona!

How long Corona will still brake our business, and will our branch be supported from our government..? Nobody can say.
But independend from this we have a optimistic view, and are well prepared with new tools, functions and well known good service for our customers.
Corona - a catastrophy in slow motion. Hard times have dawned not only for the tourism industry (and its suppliers like us ...), it will hit all areas economically hard. We are less concerned with loosing money than with all people and their health worldwide and - finally, also for ourselves. Stay healthy and keep your distance ..! This is the only way to combat this devilish virus effectively. If everyone around the world could keep it at the same time, it would be returned after 3 weeks into Pandorra's box again. And - if you should need a photo system nevertheless, look at out ready-to run sets, we ship and service remotly all around the world. yours, Tom Nolting March 20, 2020
New photo flash system on Rügens Alpine Coaster – like police traffic photo, but much cheaper and in better quality!
Posted on 20. January 2020 at 13:09
Our most northeastern customer since 2009 has kept the Liftpictures system up to date with regular updates. Since 2020, guests have been offered an even better image quality, light mix of flash and daylight, and extra fun because of the integrated and verifiable speed measurement.
This is how “being flashed” is fun!
The self-service vending machine with receipt and change of banknotes and coins, the additional postcard printing at the ticket office, the optional QR code on the photos for sharing in social media and the best speed/record display with self-updating winner photo not only make the Liftpictures photo system an important attraction at the attraction for guests. The operators are also happy about additional business, customer loyalty and e-awareness in google and social media.
What’s new at Liftpictures?
Posted on 18. December 2019 at 10:39
We say THANKS! to our customers and suppliers at the end of the successful year 2019 for the good cooperation and wish you a happy Christmas and a happy new year!
The good add-on business by selling photo souvenirs has also been very stable this year for our custumers, while the importance of eMarketing through online use in social media has increased significantly in the areas of awareness, image and brand advertising for years.
It is therefore worthwhile for everyone involved to continue investing in this field.
We are expanding two software modules:
- Photo booth/self-service machines: shopping cart function and credit card payment with new terminals (all-in-one)
- Online portal: admin area with DirectMail functions for automatic e-campaigns
At the same time, we are expanding our service concept for quick help
- also on weekends and public holidays by hotline and remote support (free of charge, as this service is rarely required due to the high system stability
- by express delivery of spare parts
The Liftpictures team is looking forward to your projects next year!
Going with the times - further developments guaranteed! Posted on 30. October 2019 at 13:09 After 13 projects until the end of the summer season is now more time for the further development of the system, already done:
- Upgrades the camera control for improved dynamic range
- Image storage with data protection according to current jurisdiction
- Cameras up to 12 megapixels
By the end of the year are planned:
- Concluding the conversion of our customers with older systems to the current software version under Windows 10
- Testing of the credit card terminals of Ingenico, which can already be integrated in self-service machines, in different countries / with different providers; Cash operation (coins and banknotes) is possible parallel to the cashless payment in the self-service machines
Easy export by ready-to-run sets
Posted on 26. July 2019 at 14:28
Shortly before the company holidays, we still have a photo system set off as a set – to the company Sunkid for export.
Further export projects the last months went to the “Ahr valley”, to the “Erzgebirge”, to Switzerland (2x), to Lithuania, to Spain, to the Slovakai,
to Taiwan and Korea.
The components are all tested and installed, the end customer can easily assemble them himself – with our instructions and
support via hotline and remote support.
This saves costs and reduces the delivery time to a few working days.
Total Fotosystem from Liftpictures witch flash and self-service-terminal, already mounted for 25.000 €
Posted on 12. July 2019 at 10:11
This is an easy calculation – pay back in a couple of months:
Sell each day between 50 and 200 photos without extra staff (= 10 – 20 % of the runs), to each sell price of 4 Euro, and material costs at 0,10 €.
Also changing light- and weather conditions are no problem, so easy to use for guests and staff!
So in this example the decision to stop the old manual system from another company was clear for our customer

Not even on the longest summer toboggan run in the Alps. This project honors us especially because it concerns the realization of current technology at one of our first customers from 2006, and the thus documented satisfaction with our price / performance ratio. Finally the first data protection method is realized here.

A new fun installation from the Burgmuseum Salzburg: Here the guest is automatically photographed while opening the coffin - accompanied by a scary laugh. Creepy - surprisingly and optimally suitable for thematizing the museum.
We used a 5.3 MP camera, 4 flash units and a central server PC with software for camera control, green screen conversion and cash register sales. 3 monitors for animation, presentation and sales dialogue complete the installation. This is our second photo installation at the Museum of Liftpictures at Dr. Ing. Berer, Fa. Salzburg Highlights.

This attraction is really exciting: One slides down 188 meters vertically in a Wiegand tube in the mountain tunnel. At the end there is a great SmilePhoto by Liftpictures - sold via the self-service machine at the end of the slide.
On Ride Photography
Posted on 22. November 2018 at 12:59
A young lady asked you – sitting in the lift chair – wether you want a photo. If yes, you was photographed by her and got a printed number at the exit of the cable car. With this number you could got to a photo shop in the city and order+pay your photo souvenir. After some days you got it deliverd by post. A very long time – compared with the technic today.
This i thought to me in the year 2005, after using this manual service.
In those times the industrial cameras we used for other projects at Siemens had really bad quality, so the only way was to use digital consumer cameras (with self developed software) or the grabbing an image from an analog video stream – in PAL quality (720 x 576). * This you find even today at some companys, if you look at their names *
Starting with option 1 we offered already photo systems with digital 4 MP quality images in 2006 with low budgets; “Liftpictures” was born.
Our customers use 9 MP industrial camera system with a selfservice terminal. So the guests are shooted automatically and can choose, pay and print their pictures immiatally at the exit – on good days more than 200 times/day – making good profit (selling price for example 3 €; material costs 0,09 €).

Also at summer toboggan runs sometimes a flash unit is needed for technical reasons. If for example sometimes a day the sun or its reflections shines into the camera or a use during darkness is needed. The actual 1″-chips cameras with 9 MP resolution und semi-light measurement provide independent from the changing daylight perfect results!
Posted on 23. July 2018 at 9:52
Great snapshots, 360 pieces / hour, are fully automatic “in the box”. The box is realized as a wall installation, where the pictures are sold fully automatically.
The printer can be supplied with photo paper during operation from the back easily accessible, every 700 photos a change is necessary, so every 4 to 7 days.
The motivation for the photo sales already takes place at the ticket office, so image buying rates of 10% and more are realistic.
