Digital photo frames are picture frames that are used to display digital photos. They do this without necessarily using a computer or a printer. These frames allow the display of images directly from the camera’s memory card. Unlike analog picture frames which only made one shot that had to be printed for display, digital photo frames can instantly create slideshows with nice transitions to display a large number of pictures. Digital photo frames are mainly used for stationary aesthetic display of photographs, which gives photos a nice look. Some, however, can add video and audio playbacks on the same.

These frames are available in different shapes and sizes and have a variety of features that the user must consider before purchasing. There is a range of digital photo frames designed by various companies; some who use Wi-Fi connection, some have a USB port while others have an SD card hub. The buyer, therefore, has a task to do background research for the best photo frame to suit his/her needs before purchasing. Some of the companies where one can find nice frames include Sony, Viewsonic, and Kodak.

Some of the factors to consider while buying a digital photo frame include the following:

1. Resolution

Screen resolution affects the quality of a picture; hence low resolution gives poor quality images. The resolution simply refers to the number of pixels that a screen can display at once. The more the number, the higher the resolution, hence the higher the picture quality. It is therefore advisable to consider buying frame models that have a resolution of 640 by 480 or above.

2. Size

Digital photo frame sizes range from 7 to 20 inches. The bigger the display size, the more expensive it is. Therefore a user may choose the size depending on their budget. With size comes an aspect of appearance in that some frames add a wooden surround to make a picture have a traditional look whereas others do not have this feature.

3. Aspect ratio

This is a factor that goes in handy with the screen size. Depending on the size of the screen display, it will support either 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios. Most still photo cameras use the 4:3 aspect ratio to capture photos; therefore a frame with 4:3 aspect ratio becomes the best for displaying photos. For a digital photo frame that uses 16:9, it will require that you crop the photo top and bottom or shrunk to properly fit in.

However, 16:9 aspect ratio gives a nice widescreen view of images unlike 4:3 which is a bit narrow. Some frames, however, display in 15:9 aspect ratio, which is also a suitable aspect ratio as it is neither too narrow nor too wide.

4. Features

When it comes to features, we consider the user of the frame and his/her needs. Some of the features that come with varied digital photo frames include Wi-Fi, streaming internet radio, full web browsers, USB port, SD card hub and Bluetooth.

If the user is simply after viewing photos and not into the web and internet stuff, it is advisable that he/she purchases a frame that has a USB port and memory card slot. Other complicated features like Web browsing and Wi-Fi are mainly for sophisticated users. Such users want Web-enabled features to be able to upload photos online to social sites such as Facebook, Picasa, and other sites.

Other features include the ability to view both photographs and videos; viewing in portrait and landscape modes among others. Best digital photo frames have a combination of all these features under one frame.

5. Price

Price matters depending on one’s choice and budget. They say cheap is expensive; hence you’d rather save for a year to buy a quality photo frame than buy a cheap one that may not serve you to satisfaction. However, expensive frames are those that have many features and could be purchased by sophisticated users.

Conclusion

From the discussion above, one can be able to tell the kind of digital photo frame they want and make a wise decision before buying one. The key point is, the best photo frames vary with the user’s needs and therefore it is the sole role of the user to choose what suits them.
