Thanks to the excellent cameras in modern smartphones, it's easier than ever to build up a big collection of photos of family, friends, and other fond memories. Sharing pictures on social media is one way to look back on photos, but if you're looking for something you can display in your home, you should consider a digital photo frame.
Digital photo frames are dedicated screens that can show slideshows of pictures you either load directly onto the frame or access from the internet. They saw some popularity for a period of time but started to wane as social media became a more integral part of sharing photos. But there are still some nice, artsy digital frames on the market, and they serve their intended purpose very well.
There are also some other, more versatile options you might want to consider.
Voice assistants have come a long way. First, they appeared on smart speakers like the Amazon Echo. Then companies added a screen to the mix, creating smart displays. This countertop, desktop, and tabletop devices provide all of the voice control functionality you get from smart speakers, along with a colorful screen that can display additional media. That media includes photos, letting you turn any smart display into a digital photo frame simply by uploading photos to your favorite service and asking the display to show them off.
Most people are guilty of having thousands of photos on their phones, but never actually getting around to printing them out. But digital photo frames are the solution to this modern-day predicament.
Digital photo frames can display photos from your phone, computer, social media, or memory cards, rotating through the albums or showing more than one photo at a time. After the initial setup, it’s a totally hassle-free way to look at your images.
Many digital photo frames require an app on your phone, which lets you upload photos to cloud-based storage. The extra clever part of this is that friends and family can also download the app, and if you give them permission they can add photos too. This creates heartwarming surprises and many smiles.
And these photo frames are seriously smart – many alter the brightness of the screen depending on your room and have motion sensors and switch off when you’re not in the room.
The price of the frames is reflective of this breath-taking quality – they’re certainly a considered purchase. So, when choosing a frame think about whether your photos are mostly landscape or portrait orientation and find your frame accordingly.
