|When you have a lot of digital pictures you
want to display or share with others but
don't have a convenient way to do so, digital
picture frames can be the perfect solution.
Available in a variety of sizes and styles,
digital picture frames display your pictures
in a framed LCD screen using a slide show
format -- all without the need to have a
When choosing a digital picture
are some features to consider:
- Large screen size and resolution. The larger
both are, the better, but also the higher
the cost. Some models trade off resolution
to get a larger picture without increase
memory costs while others provide higher
resolution with a smaller picture to hold
down the display costs. Consider how the
unit will be used (for example, on a desktop
where it will be examined up close or a mantle
where it will be seen from afar) to determine
the appropriate sized screen.
- An adequate amount of picture storage so
you don't have to continually replace the
photos in order to show all your pictures.
The amount of storage required depends on
the resolution of the display. Also, some
units use memory sticks or other removable
memory so that you can simply plug new photos
into the unit; others have built in memory
(thereby saving you the cost of buying it)
and use a PC connection to upload new pictures.
- An on/off option and motion sensor so that
your frame does not have to operate when
no one is around to see it.
- The ability to add audio, music, and transitions
options to create more interesting slide
- Adjustable background color for a nicer presentation
of your pictures.
- The ability to show pictures in portrait
or landscape mode so that pictures are always
shown in the correct orientation.
- If the frame is meant to facilitate sharing
pictures, consider a frame that has direct
Internet connectivity. This allows you or
anyone with your permission to update remotely
the pictures that will be viewed on the frame.
Although this service does have a nominal
monthly fee, it may also come with other

news, sports and other specialty information
in addition to the photos.
