Searching for the best digital photo frame? Whether you want a smart display for your desk or a simpler screen for your bedside shelf, our guide below features the very best digital frames for showcasing your photo collection.

Digital photo frames today are smarter and sharper than ever. The very best models offer a combination of outstanding image quality, versatile display options, and advanced connectivity – from cloud storage to social media integration. We’ve tested and ranked all of the top options, so you’re sure to find a frame to suit your needs and budget in this buying guide.

Available in a range of sizes and styles, there’s plenty to consider when choosing your ideal digital photo frame. If you’ve only got a small amount of shelf space, for example, you might want a freestanding frame with an 8-inch display – or one that can be mounted on the wall. You’ll probably also want a design that fits with your interior decor, while the option of a portrait orientation might be important if you’re planning to show family photos.

Compact frames tend to be more affordable, while features such as Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic color correction and high-resolution screens are generally reserved for more expensive models. A few frames still ship with an SD card slot, but the majority now allow you to upload images wirelessly from your smartphone or computer via Bluetooth and cloud storage.

Of all the frames that made our list, our current favorite is the Aura Mason. With a distinctive, minimalist design, the Mason pairs a vibrant display with a compact footprint and an easy-to-use app. It doesn’t offer too much in the way of customization, but it’s a versatile and accessible option that ticks all the key boxes. Or if you’re looking for the best affordable digital photo frame, Nixplay’s small and simple 8-inch model is our top budget pick.

But be sure to read the entire guide below before choosing the right digital photo frame for you: we’ve reviewed a whole range of options, so you might find one that’s even better suited to your exact requirements.

The best digital photo frame 2020

1. Aura Mason

The name of Aura’s minimalist frame is no accident: the Mason feels as if it’s hewn from stone. With a tiered bezel, sculpted back and premium finish, it’s a lesson in stylish understatement – a real thing of beauty. And though its display is a decent size at 9in, the freestanding design gives it a compact footprint that can fit anywhere a traditional frame would.

The Mason’s 1600×1200 display is one of the best out there, offering excellent depth, sharpness, and saturation. Images are vivid but balanced, and the added pop helps counter what is a slightly reflective screen. While the standing angle cannot be changed, its viewing angles are the class of the field – aided by the ambient light sensor’s brightness adjustments.

As with the frame itself, the partner app is pretty pared-back. Customization options are limited to slideshow timing and sleep schedules, while individual images can be selected as favorites and the crop on portrait shots adjusted. While some might want more control, the interface is uncluttered and intuitive, even for the uninitiated – which is ideal, given that you’re able to invite family members to contribute. Snaps can be added individually or as albums, and there’s also support for Live Photos.

Two touch bars are seamlessly integrated into the top and right sides of the frame. These can be used to swipe through photos, bring up more details, and select the current photo as a favorite. Subtle, smart, and effective, they’re just like the Mason itself.

Features:

  • Display: 9-inch LCD
  • Resolution: 1600×1200 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, 
  • BluetoothDimensions: 246 x 193 x 48 mm
  • Sources: App
  • Remote control: No
  • Cloud storage: Unlimited (free)
  • Orientation: Portrait/landscape (automatic)
  • Wall-mounting: No
Pros
  • Seamless design & interface
  • Vibrant, high-res screen
Cons
  • Fixed display angle
  • Only ships with a US plug

2. Nixplay 2K Smart Digital Photo Frame

Nixplay’s 2K Smart Digital Photo Frame features one of the sharpest screens on the market. With a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, the display offers detail for days – and it’s vibrant, too, with impressively deep blacks and more than enough brightness to beat the screen’s reflective coating.\

At 9.7 inches, the display also strikes an excellent middle ground: with a flexible stand setup that can support the frame in portrait or landscape orientation, the Smart Digital Photo Frame will fit on almost any shelf, while also giving images enough real estate to really be seen and enjoyed. Handily, it can also be wall-mounted.

As with other Nixplay frames, the settings menu offers no shortage of customisation options, from transitions and colour adjustments to sleep timers and the sensitivity of the motion sensor. Controlled via the physical remote (or the virtual replica in the app), the frame is responsive and pretty intuitive, even if the high resolution means text sometimes appears a little small.

Loading up photos via the partner app is a straightforward process. Create, populate and organise multiple playlists using photos from your smartphone, or sync with Google Photos to display AI-generated smart albums. You can also connect with friends to easily receive snaps and assign them to your frame.

One final note: in matte black, the frame’s bezel is sizable but understated. In contrast, the metal-effect variant is both excessively reflective and a serious fingerprint magnet, distracting from what is otherwise a sharp and capable Wi-Fi frame.

Features:

  • Display: 9.7-inch LCD
  • Resolution: 2048 x 1536 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi
  • Dimensions: 248 x 199 x 31 mm
  • Sources: App, cloud storage
  • Remote control: Yes
  • Cloud storage: 10GB (free) 
  • Orientation: Portrait/landscape (automatic)
  • Wall-mounting: Yes
Pros
  • High-resolution display
  • Proportions are close to perfect
Cons
  • The resolution makes menu text small
  • The metal-effect bezel is too reflective

3. Facebook Portal Digital Photo Frame

Primarily a device for calling friends and family, Facebook’s social screen does a side-gig as a slick digital photo frame. Styled like a floating box frame with neat lines and a quality finish, it’s an attractive fit for contemporary shelves – provided there’s space for the supporting leg. The stand can prop the Portal in portrait or landscape, but it sticks out by 12cm – and the power cable exits from its end, so it can’t sit flush against your wall. 

Up front, the 10-inch display is vibrant and responsive, with good detail and colour reproduction. The panel is quite reflective, but there’s enough brightness to counter glare – though this dips when viewing from a 45-degree angle.

Setup is straightforward and the slick touchscreen interface is matched by the polished partner app. Photos can be sourced from Facebook, Instagram or your smart device, then sorted into albums which can be individually enabled. 

You can’t change how the Superframe slideshow is sorted or tweak the transition style, though – only the duration of each slide. Nor can you extend the sleep setting beyond an hour: if the Portal’s sensor doesn’t detect motion for 60 minutes, it’ll automatically sleep. Not a major issue, unless you position the Portal on a high shelf or in a far corner where it misses any movement.

You do need a Facebook or WhatsApp account to activate the Portal, which will be a negative factor for some – but with Alexa, Spotify and family apps included, it’s certainly a feature-packed frame.

Features:

  • Screen size: 10-inch touchscreen
  • Resolution: 1280×800 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 260 x 175 x 141 mm
  • Sources: App, social media
  • Remote control: No
  • Cloud storage: Unlimited (free)
  • Orientation: Portrait/landscape (automatic)
  • Wall-mounting: No
Pros
  • Chic contemporary design
  • Vibrant smart display
Cons
  • Fixed stand is too big for some shelves
  • leeps after an hour without motion

4. Nixplay Nix Digital Photo Frame 8-inch

Compact and affordable, Nixplay’s 8-inch digital photo frame is also surprisingly feature-packed – provided you’re happy to skip the cloud connectivity offered by more expensive frames.

Front-on, it apes the aesthetic of a traditional photo frame. Its plastic build doesn’t feel premium, but a bevelled bezel and unique rippled back mean it stops short of characterless. Propping it up is an adjustable stand that works in portrait or landscape (the display automatically rotates) and can also be removed for wall-mounting.

The 8-inch screen is at the smaller end of the spectrum, but it displays landscape snaps at a size similar to standard photo prints, so it’s a natural fit for most shelves. The panel is bright with decent colour reproduction, though there’s noticeably less contrast depth and detail definition than some frames with the same 1280×800 resolution.

That said, the matte finish means reflections aren’t an issue, while the brightness, contrast and colour settings can all be adjusted to suit. In fact, from transitions to interval times to sleep settings, tinkerers will find plenty to customise in the settings menus, including the activation of the motion sensor.

The downside is an interface that feels like a file browser. The infrared remote is easy to use and navigating images on an SD card or USB stick is straightforward, but the system simply isn’t as slick as some – and it can sometimes feel quite sluggish, especially when scrolling through thumbnails. But it’s a minor compromise on an otherwise versatile budget frame.

Features

  • Screen size: 8-inch LCD
  • Resolution: 1280×800 pixels
  • Connectivity: N/A
  • Dimensions: 212 x 148 x 30 mm
  • Sources: USB, SD card
  • Remote control: Yes
  • Cloud storage: N/A
  • Orientation: Portrait/landscape (automatic)
  • Wall-mounting: Yes
Pros
  • Good value
  • Plenty of settings to adjust
Cons
  • Definition could be better
  • File browser interface isn’t the slickest

5. Aura Carver

Bigger sibling to the Mason, Aura’s contemporary Carver takes the same streamlined and premium approach, but packs a bigger landscape display with a higher resolution to match.

At 10.1 inches, the sharp, sizable screen offers lots of space for your photos to shine. Snaps are vibrant, displaying with the kind of detail, saturation and depth that made the Mason a winner. Though the triangular stand is fixed, viewing angles are excellent and adaptive brightness brings out the best in almost any image.

Surrounding the screen is a minimalist bezel that appears to float within the frame. It’s a neat and understated design that’s mirrored around the back, where an angular, textured shell supports the Carver in style, without stealing too much shelf space. That said, a serious snag for some will be the landscape orientation which, unlike most rivals, can’t be rotated.

Then again, the Carver looks subtly sublime as a landscape frame, and its party trick is displaying a pair of portrait photos side-by-side. It’s a simple yet striking solution, powered by Aura’s Intelligent Photo Pairing software, which uses AI to match similar pictures – often in happily unexpected ways.

Because the Carver also shares the same pared-back partner app and interface as the Mason, there isn’t much to tweak. You can’t manually adjust brightness, for example, or change color settings. But surrendering control does net you an intuitive interface that makes selecting favorites, uploading albums and inviting contributors straightforward. Similarly, a touch bar atop the Carver means swiping through the slideshow is a cinch.

Features

  • Display: 10.1-inch LCD
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1200 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 270 x 189 x 66 mm
  • Sources: App
  • Remote control: No
  • Cloud storage: Unlimited (free)
  • Orientation: LandscapeWall-mounting: No
Pros
  • Big, sharp, and vibrant screen
  • Streamlined, intuitive interface
Cons
  • Landscape orientation only
  • Limited customization options

6. Google Nest Hub Max Digital Photo Frame

The Nest Hub Max is both a hub for smart devices and a portal for accessing Google Assistant at home, but it also does well as a digital photo frame. Styled like a 10-inch tablet attached to a fabric-skinned speaker, it forms a neat free-standing package with a small shelf footprint – even if the screen’s plastic shell and bezels don’t feel particularly premium.

The fixed stand setup means you can’t adjust the display angle from its default upward tilt. While this will be an issue if you want to place the frame on a higher shelf, the viewing angles are otherwise good, with decent saturation and plenty of brightness – provided you’re fine with a reflective panel.

At 1280×800, the resolution of the touchscreen could be higher, but there’s still good detail with no noticeable pixellation – and it makes controlling the Nest Hub Max a cinch. Swipe between photos or tap the pop-up controls to hide, star or share particular images, or do the same thing with voice commands.

The Nest Hub Max can display art backgrounds, a full-screen clock or a selection of snaps from your Google Photos account. It supports Live Albums, features the option to show portrait pics in split-screen and offers time, weather and image data overlays – but you can’t manually change the slideshow order. And because it only works with Google Photos, the Nest Hub Max makes sense mainly for those already invested in the company’s cloud backup service.

Features

  • Screen size: 10-inch touchscreen
  • Resolution: 1280×800 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 250 x 183 x 101 mm
  • Sources: Google Photos
  • Remote control: No
  • Cloud storage: 15GB (free) or pay to expand
  • Orientation: LandscapeWall-mounting: No
Pros
  • Decent screen brightness
  • No shortage of smart features
Cons
  • Screen angle is fixed
  • Slideshow only supports Google Photos

7. Nixplay Seed Wave Digital Photo Frame

If you’re looking for a centrepiece display, the Nixplay Seed Wave is one of the biggest digital photo frames you can buy: at 13 inches, there’s no shortage of screen real estate – though the widescreen proportions mean many images will be cropped or bordered by black. 

And while the Full HD resolution is higher than on many alternatives, the extra pixels are stretched over a larger area. As a result, images lack detail and, though colours are fairly well balanced, photographs can feel a little flat and lacklustre.

On the other hand, the matte finish keeps glare at bay and viewing angles are decent. With a smooth but chunky plastic bezel around its edge, the frame isn’t especially subtle, though it does feel sturdy. Flip it round and you’ll find two mesh elements harbouring the 5W speakers. These are surprisingly punchy and, with support for Spotify and 15-second videos, give the frame a welcome dose of versatility. 

As for the stand, that’s a flexible affair: the thick, reinforced cable – which also houses the power connection – can be adjusted to almost any angle to support the Seed Wave, aided by a clumsy but effective rubber base.

Photos are added through the comprehensive Nixplay app. Snaps can be uploaded in batches to different playlists, while the app also allows you to adjust the Seed Wave’s many options – from transitions to sleep schedules. Alternatively, you can use the bundled infrared remote. Both are useful compliments to what is a slightly cumbersome but generous frame

Features

  • Display: 13-inch LCD
  • Resolution: 1920×1080 pixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Dimensions: 336 x 213 x 38 mm
  • Sources: App, social media, cloud storage
  • Remote control: Yes
  • Cloud storage: 10GB (free)
  • Orientation: Portrait/landscape (automatic)
  • Wall-mounting: No
Pros
  • All sorts of settings to tweak
  • Integrated speakers with Spotify support
Cons
  • Chunky bezel isn’t subtle
  • Images aren’t crystal clear

8. NIX Lux 13 Inch X13B Wood

Photo frames come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and designs, but digital photo frames tend to all look like mini TVs, with plain black borders the norm. That’s all well and good for some tech, but for something that’s explicitly intended to be on display, you might want something with a little more pizzazz.

That’s what Nixplay hopes to offer with its latest digital frame range: Nix Lux, which comes in your choice of a metal or wood finish, and so avoids looking like just another featureless black rectang

Features

  • USB & SD/SDHC content playback: plug a USB or SD/SDHC card on the frame’s back to instantly display all your digital photos and videos
  • Hu-motion sensor turns the frame on when you enter the room and off when you leave the room
  • Built-in speakers, clock/Calendar function, and multi-language capability – Comes with a full one Year Warranty
  • Perfect for everyone; from professionals to parents and grandparents.
Pros
  • Rosewood veneer finish.
  • Clear, crisp IPS display.
  • Basically no setup.
  • 8GB thumb drive included.
Cons
  • No Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • 16:10 aspect ratio not for everyone.

9. Pix-Star 10 Inch Wi-Fi Cloud Digital

Image quality for the Pix-Star 10.4-inch Wi-Fi backlit LED Cloud Digital Photo Frame is impressive, featuring a 4:3 aspect ratio and large, bright display with optional adjustments for hue, saturation and contrast. It’s got that square look with a presentable matte black plastic frame that’s designed to perch on a table — there’s no option to hang it.

While the resolution is lower than some other models of its size, the aspect ratio compensates by filling the entire frame with your image.

Features

  • 8 GB internal memory (~30,000 pictures)
  • USB stick, SDHC and SDXC card compatible
  • Wi-Fi (compatible 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz NOT supported)
  • Motion Sensor
  • UPnP – DLNA
  • Send by email, Android & iOS apps, web dashboard
Pros
  • Can send and receive images and audio messages via email
  • Lets you tune in to international radio stations or play music files
  • iOS and Android apps
Cons
  • Multi-frame account setup is complex
  • Low-resolution screen

10. Aluratek 8 Inch LCD Digital Photo Frame USB SD

Your digital photos will be displayed clearer and vibrant on the “true digital” LCD panel. Easy menu navigation with push button controls. No required setup or software to install. Place the frame on a counter or mount on a wall to enhance your message to your customers

Features

  • Configure photo slideshows to play in various display and transition modes
  • Supports various photo formats
  • Supports SD / SDHC / SDXC memory cards (up to 32GB)
  • Connect a USB hard drive (power adapter required),
  • USB flash drive or SD card to easily access and share your favorite photos
Pros
  • Very easy to use and set up

Cons
  • Low-resolution screen

Digital Photo Frame Buying Guide

It is a daunting task to choose a suitable digital photo frame from the different makes and models. This buying guide provides you an insight into the different features that are offered by digital frames.

But before buying a digital frame, you should consider these things

Screen Size

Usually, the size of the digital frame ranges from 3 x 5 to 10 x 12 inches. The best digital frames are the larger sized ones that have frame sizes of up to 7 inch and 8 inch. Like televisions and computer monitors, LCD photo frames are measured diagonally.

So a 7 inch to 9 inch digital photo album matches the standard photo print size 4 x 6 or 5 x 7. However, there are also larger digital picture frames that have a diagonal size of 20 inches.

Resolution

Display resolution determines the number of pixels, horizontally by vertically, that the frame can display. In short, the resolution is the size of the screen image measured in pixels.

It is recommended that users should buy digital photo frame with a pixel resolution of at least 800 x 600 or 800 x 480 pixels. This display resolution produces pixel density of about 100 pixels per inch.

Aspect Ratio

Aspect ratio determines the relationship between the height and width of the image. Most of the digital frames use a 4:3 or 3:2 aspect ratio.

Assess at image quality and aspect ratio. The digital recreations of photos must look sharp and realistic, while maintaining a natural-looking crop.

The dimensions of the digital picture frames differ as those of HDTV and computer screens. If the aspect ratio of a digital frame closely matches the dimensions of the photo then the image will fill the whole screen.

Most common aspect ratio used in digital frames

Standard (4:3)

It fits most of the photo print sizes. The typically sized photos will fill the entire digital photo frame.

Widescreen (16:9)

It is mostly used for movies and TV shows. It is ideal for those who are planning to display videos along with still photos on their digital frames.

Ease of Use

Ease of use is another element we consider while reviewing the best digital photo frames. If a frame is simple to set up and navigate, it often has more value. However, an expansive offering of connected features is important, too. We think most of the photo frames on this list strike a solid balance.

Frame

The frame that surrounds the display screen is made using different materials, colors and styles. They can be built from plastic, metal, wood and also glass. Some types of digital frames also offer interchangeable face plates that can change its look to fit the surrounding decor.

Image Quality

The image quality is a very important factor of a digital frame. The surface of the screen can affect the way the photo is displayed. Most of the best digital photo frames come with matte, non-reflective screens.

However, there are others that come with a screen placed under a piece of glass. This creates a bit of glare, and in such cases an anti-glare coating will be required.

Built-In Storage

Some digital frames offer built-in memory that allows users to store images. This becomes a convenient way for users as they do not have to use the camera’s memory card in the frame. The ideal memory size to look for in a digital frame is 512 MB.

Memory Cards

Apart from internal memory, some digital frames provide memory card slots that allow users to add to the already existing storage space. The most common types of supported memory cards are SD, compact flash and memory stick.

It is necessary to ensure that the memory card used in the frame is the same as that used in the camera.

Connectivity

Some digital photo frames offer various connectivity options such as USB, WI-Fi and Bluetooth. Users can easily transfer digital images directly from the computer to the digital frame through a USB port.

Some digital frames also provide WI-Fi connectivity that allows users to download photos from the computer’s hard drive and even connect to photo-sharing sites. Also, Bluetooth connectivity is offered in most digital photo frames. This feature allows users to connect the frame with their camera or mobile phone wireless to transfer photos.

Motion Sensors

Meanwhile, a motion sensor is practically a must. Digital photo frames do not need to waste energy by playing all day long if no one is in the room to view them

Many frames offer calendar, clock, reminders, games, calculators, weather app widgets and speaker ports. These features aren’t expectations, but make nice extras.

Frequently Ask Questions

Why do I need a digital photo frame?

Digital photo frames are the latest innovation to allow a simple and delightful way to access and view your digital photos. We all now have these stored and largely unseen on memory cards, computers, digital cameras and telephones. The digital photo frame is a unique way of displaying those pictures that mean so much – whether it’s in your home or your office.

Instead of setting just one photo in a traditional frame, the Digital Photo Frame with its sharp LCD screen and clever electronics, allows you to show hundreds of photos – continuously scrolling in a slide-show of memories – easy to configure and update. And unlike your PC slideshow or stored telephone images, this is a dedicated electronic photo album and a delightful way to present those images that mean so much. It is a great gift for friends and relatives and increasingly a product that offers amazing value – as screen qualities improve and features are added.

How do I use my digital photo frame?

Most digital photo frames have built-in stereo speakers and will play MP3 music files. This allows you to store music on the memory card. Then in slide-show mode you can set pictures running with one or a variety of tracks playing as background music – or simply use the device as a music player. Additionally they all play video files (check individual manual) – mostly MPEG’s. You can store short video clips and scenes on the memory card and play these continually or on demand.

How to update the memory card?

By far the easiest way to add and delete images on your memory card is via the PC. Typically you would copy your photos from the camera or telephone into your pictures folder on the PC. You can then view them, crop them, edit them and put them into an order of play that you like. Now you want to copy this folder – ideally onto a fresh memory card. You can do this in several ways:

Does your PC have a built-in memory card reader? If so, insert the card and copy the picture files to this drive. Use your camera as a memory card writer. Insert the fresh memory card in the camera connected to the PC. Copy your picture selection back onto the camera. Then remove the card If you would like more flexibility with different card types, buy a simple multi-card reader (£8.95 on this website) and connect via USB to your computer. This allows you to copy between your PC and 17 different types of memory card – effectively becoming an additional storage device in “My Computer”

What else can the Digital Photo Frame do?

They are designed to be driven by inserting a memory card or stick. Typically the digital photo frames accept a wide variety of the most common memory cards and many additionally accept USB sticks. Simply insert one of the accepted cards into the frame, loaded with your photos, and a slide-show of the pictures will automatically begin. You can adjust settings like the speed and style of transition between pictures.

Which digital photo frame should I choose?

Although the features vary between digital photo frames, the key difference is probably in style and design. Choose between traditional classic wooden frames and modern acrylic and plexi-glass materials. Select a display size according to your budget and a format (4×3 or 16×9) according to your viewing preferences. All will offer crisp picture quality, ease of use and remote control selection and adjustment.

What accessories will I need?

It is a good idea to invest in an additional memory card to power the frame. In this way you can store your favourite slide-shows on it and easily edit and update whenever you want to. You may also want to purchase a multi-card reader to connect to your PC for simple memory card loading and editing.

How do I Play Videos on Repeat

When playing the movie, please press the “OSD” key. Press “Right” key to move to the end of the function. Firstly when at the end you will encounter “No Subtitles”. Press “Right” once more to read “2 ch MP3”. Now press once more “Right” again, it will read “Standard”. At “Standard” press “Enter” changing it to “Repeat One”, and press again for “Repeat Dir”

How do I change the order my pictures show up on my frame?

Every time you take a picture on your digital camera it adds a timestamp to the file, all of our frames use this time stamp to determine the order it displays your images. If however you would like your photos to be displayed in a certain order you will need to open the image up on your computer with some image editing software such as Microsoft Paint and then resave the image on to your computer’s hard drive in the order you want them to display.

Does the Digital Picture Frame have built-in memory?

No. The Digital Picture Frame does not have any internal memory to store your files. You must use a compatible memory card to play your Media files.

Can I insert multiple memory cards?

Yes. Turn off the unit before you insert any card. The screen will show what types of memory cards are in the slots. Use the remote control to select the memory card.

What is the maximum picture size?

The Digital Picture Frame is able to display pictures up to 12 Megapixels.

What is the best picture resolution displayed on the screen?

The frame’s best resolution is 640 x 480.

Does it play every type of AVI and or MPEG4 videos?

No. The device only works with the avi/mpeg4 files taken by most digital cameras.

Can I rotate a picture on the screen?

Yes. Use the ROTATE button on the remote control to rotate a picture. Note: The rotated picture will return to its original orientation after you power down the Digital Picture Frame. You will need to edit the picture on your PC if you want to permanently change the orientation.

If I keep showing the same photo for a long time, will it damage the LCD screen?

No. The Digital Picture Frame can display the same photo continuously for 1,000 hours without causing damage to its LCD screen.

How do I store music files?

First, use a personal computer and popular audio editing software to convert your music toMP3 format. The Digital Picture Frame will only play MP3 files so all Windows Media Player™ and/or iTunes™ files will have to be converted first. You can use a card reader or your digital camera to transfer those files to your memory card.

How come the Digital Picture Frame does not show some of my photos?

The Digital Picture Frame is designed to show photos following the same camera industry standards format as digital cameras. This format is a JPEG format. Images, such as web images, scanned images, or photos in RAW format, are not stored according to camera industry standards and therefore cannot be displayed correctly on the Digital Picture Frame. Please use your PC applications to convert such images into standard JPEG format before viewing them on the Digital Picture Frame.

Can I switch between different photos by using different memory cards?

Yes. When you connect your memory cards to the Digital Photo Frame, it will display photos, music and video files stored on that specific card that are in the required format. You can even switch between different card reader formats to view different pictures.

How can I make my photos automatically start displaying when I switch on?

This is the default factory setting and can be accessed via setup; slide show setup; select Auto-start; Exit.

Why is the video shown on the screen in small size and not full screen?

Most digital cameras take video in 320×240 or lower resolution. The best supported resolution of a photo or video is 640×480. Use the Zoom button on the remote control to enlarge it.

Conclusion

Usually, a range of digital photo frames is between 50 to 200 dollars with more expensive boasting larger screens-10 inches or more and Wi-Fi connectivity. It is up to you if you buy an expensive frame then that frame will bring more functions in it.

If you buy a cheaper unit tends to have little or no internal storage, so that you have to buy an extra SD card or USB flash drive in addition to the frame.

Some SD cards are very cheap as 15$, and 16 GB USBS can be bought for as little as 6$. These drives will help your frame to store hundreds of pictures and video so you can play them for your frame.

We are here for you to guide you with the best digital frame according to your budget. If your budget is low, then we recommend you to buy a non-Wi-Fi device because they are cheap then the others.

The price goes up significantly when HD screens and the internet come into play. A device that doesn’t use Wi-Fi is much easier to use and to maintain, especially if they aren’t comfortable with the technology.
