The following items about digital frames are from the link above where you may find additional information.
Another important feature to consider is how many images you can store on the frame. Most have slots for loading pictures directly from a camera's memory card. Make sure it accepts the same type or types of cards that your camera(s) do, as this will make transferring images to the frame significantly simpler. Also, look for a frame with a large internal (built-in) memory if you plan on loading lots of images for slide shows, videos and so forth.
With all the attention your digital frame will get from friends, family and members of your own household, you'll want to keep it updated with your most recent photos. Having multiple connectivity options can make this task a lot simpler. Most frames can connect to your PC using a ubiquitous USB cable
, while Blue tooth and WiFi-enabled frames let you sync wirelessly from laptops, camera phones and cameras that are WiFi enabled. Many WiFi-enabled frames can automatically sync images from PCs on your home network or from photo sharing sites
on the Internet, making it simple to keep updated.
If your computer has memory card slots
, you can copy from the computer to a memory card.
If there are no memory card slots on your computer, purchase a Targus card reader
at Walmart for $8.88 or another brand for less at Ritz/Wolf/Kit camera. Also, they do 3½ x 5" digital prints for 6¢ each on Tuesday and Wednesday.
CAUTION To prevent memory card corruption, keep batteries charged and don't delete. Wait for lights to stop flashing then turn camera off before removing memory. For card readers
, double click Safely Remove Hardware. Select then click Stop and OK.
Have just been playing with this and found that it works really well, but you should first format the memory card in the camera because it adds files to the card you will need.
Next, take a picture of something with the camera.
Place the memory card in the card reader and go to My Computer.
Open the memory card and you should see a folder on the left (DCIM) that has your picture. Do not open the MISC folder on the right.
Double Click on the DCIM folder
and you should see another folder (e.g.,100HPM417) which includes the name of your camera. Double Click on that folder and you should see the picture you just took.
When you copy from the computer to a memory card, that is the folder where your computer pictures must be copied. You may only be able to copy one picture at a time from My Computer.
One last thing, the file names of your pictures must not have any additional letters or those pictures will not be seen by the camera. Also, the file name format must match the file name of the picture you took e.g., HPIM1903. Rename files to the format of your camera photos.
If you have trouble with this, it may be easier to right click on Start and then left click Explore. Find and select the pictures you want to copy and then near the top left, click the X next to Folders to see a place to select Copy files. You can then select the memory card folder e.g.,100HPM417, that you clicked to see the picture you took and click Copy. You can copy pictures easier with this method.
