| Digital Photo Frames
A great, creative way to show off your photos and memories is with a digital photo frame. Bring your favorite memories to life in stunning quality and clarity. Choose from different models and styles to fit your needs and create a montage of unforgettable memories with family and friends.
Style and Appearance: Digital photo frames are offered in a large variety of styles, sizes, and appearances. Choose one that blends in with your home with the right finish or color. Also, some offer interchangeable faceplates that allow you to change the look of your frame depending on your mood or decor.
Display Size: Frames come in a range of display sizes to fit your preference. Sizes typically range from 7 inches to 14 inches.
Resolution: Make sure to choose a digital photo frame with a higher resolution. More pixels per square inch allows for a sharper and crisper photo.
Aspect Ratio: The aspect ratio is the ratio of the horizontal dimension of your picture to the vertical dimension. Most frames offer different aspect ratios. The most common are 4:3 for standard full screen or 16:9 for widescreen. Most digital cameras shoot in 4:3.
Contrast Ratio: Similar to resolution, a greater contrast will create more vivid photos.
Image Control: Digital frames that offer image controls let you increase the clarity, sharpness, and crispness of your images.
Storage Capacity: Digital frames offer a range of storage capacities. Most come with internal memory that stores around 128MB (megabytes). This will typically hold about 30 photos. If you plan on storing entire albums you will want to make sure your frame has an expandable memory slot or a USB port. Expansion slots allow you to expand memory up to 8GB so you can store thousands of photos.
Speakers: Some digital photo frames include speakers. This allows you to set slideshows to play MP3 music in the background or experience sound if your frame is capable of video playback.
Touch Panel: Customize your photos and viewing options with an easy-to-use, touch-sensitive border.
Power Option: Some frames require a wall outlet, while some run on batteries. A frame that can use both power options is most practical because it gives you the freedom of placing the frame anywhere.
Wireless or Bluetooth Options: Certain digital photo frames include built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. This allows you to transfer photos to your frame wirelessly from your computer or Bluetooth enabled phone.
Other Viewing Features: Digital frames offer a variety of personalized options. Some give you the option to display photos with special effects, transitions, or even the ability to display a clock or calendar.
HDMI Output: HDMI output-enabled frames allow you to view your photos on a high definition (HD) television.
Display Options: Digital photo frames can be displayed either on a table or shelf where they can be easily moved, or wall-mounted to be displayed as a gallery. Make sure your photo frame comes with mounting brackets if you plan on going this route.
Remote Control: Most picture frames come with a remote that enables you to easily scan through your photo collection.
