Digital Photo Frames: 5 Epic Reasons They Are Worth Having


Digital Photo Frames

Digital Photo Frames, once crazy expensive, have come a long way since they first came out several years ago. Models are now available from tiny key-chain sizes to 20-inch family portrait-friendly styles.

You’re probably on your second or third digital camera by now (not to mention the camera on your cell phone). You have already taken thousands of pictures; maybe you’ve even organized them through some complicated system understood only by you.

You’ve posted some online, created albums on Flickr, and e-mailed a few now and then.

Didn’t you make your photo holiday card a couple of years ago?

Digital Photo Frames Solves Your Media Problems

The biggest problem with your beautiful pictures is that you never see them.

The fridge can only hold so many pictures. Digital picture frames, once crazy expensive – and not that good-looking either – have come a long way since they first came out several years ago.

Models are now available from tiny keychain sizes to 20-inch family portrait-friendly styles.

Look for resolution and brightness in a picture frame, plus off-access viewing – picture frames aren’t like TVs, so you won’t always be directly in front of one when viewing.

Most now do several other tricks, such as play MP3 audio files and video files and allow wireless photo transfer via Bluetooth or WiFi. A remote help, but you’ll probably lose it.

Here are five reasons why today’s digital photo frames might be worth looking at.

1. No Need To Give Grandma a Crash Course

Why is a dusty generation of shoddy digital frames still scrolling through junior-high photos of kids now entering law school?

Simple: the pain of updating SD memory cards. Today’s devices require little more than a Wi-Fi connection to let anyone access a legion of photos.

With the digital frames from the brand Skylight, friends and family can send shots straight to a unique email address.

Once you press send, grandma needs merely tap to view on the HD touch screen and enjoy new images.

2. The Screens Are More Innovative

Using a similar tech that automatically adjusts a smartphone’s brightness to a room’s ambient light, Netgear’s Meural Wi-Fi Photo Frame outwits the distracting glare of high noon.

The cable-operated frames feature a 15.6-inch diagonal HD display to show off family photos and cleverly avoid energy waste.

Instead of screening images in empty rooms, they can be set to power down when they stop sensing light automatically.
