Hi there, the screen resolution for that frame is only 800x400 pixels. When you're in your photo editor doing resizing, make sure you don't make the picture any bigger than that. Try it out and let me know how it goes.

Some of my vertical (portrait) photos on my 15" are displaying as horizontal (Landscape). What can I do to fix this?


Have you saved the images that are appearing as Landscape in Portrait?

The frame should display the images as you saved them. Rotate the image in your photo editing program until they appear as Portrait, then save them. This should fix your problem.

Will not display larger file size pictures from my new digital camer. The digital frame is model DPF-1021. From our old digital camera, the file sizes of pictures wer under 200KB. The new camera produces...


No you simply MUST have the pictures in the EXACT format & size that the Frame uses...You can simply re-size the pic's Usually they are pretty picky what they run... usually it will be a set format.. say JPG, and size say 200KB and color depth say 24/32bit. If one uses anything else your are going to get problems.
Go here to get a free good image resizer, download and install, then all you do is right click image and resize.

Brookstone my life pocket album error


I had the same problem. I lwas able to load more pictures because I bypassed the function. It is easy. Just open the resized picture file on your computer, then, copy (control c) the pictures you want, and then open the photo album device through "my computer" and paste into the appropriate album. My digital photo album was listed as F Drive in my computer.

Digital Picture Frame Shows Black Bars


The nature of 16:9 basically means that you will be losing photo information in normally framed 4x5/5x7 photos. There is no way to fix this because the frame size of 16:9 is wider than 4x5/5x7. The options the frame offers are the only options to make your photos fit. Either crop, or distort.

The best solution is to keep this in mind when taking photos from now on and assume you will be cropping the top and bottom of the image.

As for the photos you have already taken, the only viable tactic to take is to reframe them for 16:9 yourself. You can download a free photo editing application like "GIMP" to do this. Create a new project that is 800x450 pixels. This will give you a 16:9 canvas. Next drag your existing photos into this canvas and move it around and resize it until you find a suitable framing for your picture.

Unfortunately it seems that as 16:9 solidifies itself as the new screen standard people are finding that shooting photos framed for 4:3 or in portrait dimensions are not translating well to this new standard. You may even want to consider returning this frame and looking for a 4:3 aspect ratio frame if cropping/resizing is not acceptable for you. Good luck!

Not all jpeg images will load on 7'' Pandigital Photo Frame


I was having a problem too with my Smartparts frame. All the pics were from the same camera but some of the vertical (portrait) orientation shots wouldn't show right. Just a bunch of thin colored lines. After some phone calls I did try to "resize" the photos to the "resolution" of my frame (had to look that up too). My frame is 640 width by 480 high. So I took a shot and changed all the goofy photos to 480 width (since they were vertical) and let Photoshop change the the other number. Low and behold the buggers are showing up fine now. Well on to my next problem - focusing with the new D90. I think that one is going to be more challenging yet. Hope this helps you out.

I have a Brookstone digital picture frame that refuses to complete the boot cycle. It appears to get about 3/4 of the way through before locking up with the status bar and the big Brookstoneon in white on...


cheap **** - Really Brookstone? No reset? No way to format? Crappy warranty? Poor workmanship? No software that resizes your images so they won't crash your picture frame? screw you guys, I'm never shopping here again
