The Best Digital Picture Frame – A Buyers Guide.


I would like to talk to you about some of the best digital picture frames you can now get your hands on and also what to look out for when buying one.

The best digital picture frames will let you store and display all your favourite photographic memories in one place. Why have one photo and one frame when you can now have one attractive looking frame with 100’s of pictures to choose from, or even view as a slide show.

You will, I’m sure, have noticed that there are literally hundreds of digital frames to choose from and as with any piece of technology finding the best and making sense of all the jargon can be a bit of a minefield.

You need to ask yourself a few questions, such as, ‘what size screen do I need?’, ‘how much storage is enough?’ and ‘how much should I be spending?’.

What size screen?My personal opinion is that the best digital picture frames tend to be the ones with the bigger screens. You obviously get to see more of the detail in the photo. It is a personal thing and frames usually range between the 7″ and 10″ size range but there are some available that have screens at 15″ and above. The screen resolution (the number of pixels displayed on the screen) also has a big say in the quality of your images. You can’t go far wrong if you pick a photo frame with a resolution of at least 640×480.

How much storage?Digital frames often display photographs from your camera’s memory card but also have some internal memory to permanently store your favourites. Again this is up to yourselves and you will find that photo frames will often increase in price as the storage increases.

Are there any added features?The very best digital picture frames will have a number of added extras often as you may expect, at a price. Some frames will allow you to wirelessly transfer photos from sites such as Flickr or Facebook. Some also have music-playing capabilities with the option to download MP3 files to listen to while you view. You will also find that most digital photo frames can double up as an alarm clock and some also include a radio.

How much should I spend?Most digital frames worth considering range from around $40 for the very basic, going right up to amazing 3D image-viewers at over $1,000. Image quality, storage capacity and the build-quality all improve, naturally, as the prices increase.

I hope that this has been of some use if you were unsure of what you were looking for when picking the best digital picture frame for you.
