Digital Picture Frames Bring Families Together

Families generate a lot of pictures. Whether it’s a crowded holiday celebration, a family member blowing out the candles on their birthday cake or the grandkids looking adorable, someone is bound to whip out a camera and capture the moment. But how can you make sure that you share all your important pictures with the rest of your family? That’s where a digital picture frame comes in.

How Do Digital Picture Frames Work?

A digital picture frame is like a regular picture frame that holds a screen instead of a photo. Instead of one picture, the frame displays a rotating slideshow of different photos, so you’ll never have to choose just one! It’s a great way to showcase family photos in an age when most photos never get printed out.

But how do the photos get into the frame? There are a few methods that you and your loved ones can use to add photos to your digital frame, depending on the frame you choose. Some frames require you to download an app to your phone that you can use to upload photos. Other frames use a dedicated email address or include a wire that you can plug your phone or digital camera into. Most frames utilize Wi-Fi to transfer photos from your phone to the frame, so make sure that you have Wi-Fi and are able to connect to it before purchasing a frame.

What Frames Should We Use?

There are many types of digital frames to choose from! Here are just a few.
