Is this a party/events item or a permanent installation?
Sounds like a costly tool, if one exists. A human filter would be less

Auto up the files to server or Dropbox via the camera uploads tool, an
upright primate filters the images (via laptop/desk or phone), share with
other primates.  You can have a folder in Dropbox configured that you'd
move the good pics into; and they would get uploaded to facebook. Yes, your
scripts would work too. But I'd think having access in your hand would free
things up(?)

And if you need a Dropbox invite, let me know. I can always use more
space.   :)
