The digital photo frame has a small amount of built-in memory (10MB) that stores a few of your favorite pictures directly onto the frame. The purpose of the small internal memory is to store a few pictures in order to display them on your frame when you do not have a memory card inserted into the frame. The internal memory on your digital photo frame is a fixed amount and cannot be expanded. However, you can increase the amount of pictures that can be displayed by using memory cards with a larger memory capacity. The digital photo frame features two built-in memory card readers for easy viewing and sharing of photos stored on the memory cards. View USB flash drive photos without a PC

Things to know when shopping for a Digital Photo Frame:
Similar to monitors, the screen size of a digital picture frame is measured in inches diagonally from corner to corner. The screen size should be the size of the visible display and not include the surrounding frame.
The resolution is the number of pixels that a digital photo frame can display. The higher the resolution the crisper the image. A high resolution is most important on large screens in order to avoid a blurred or pixilated display of your pictures.
An image’s aspect ratio represents a comparison of its width to height. A few frames can display images in an HDTV aspect ratio of 16:9 but most use the TV aspect ratio of 4:3. This means for every 4 units of width there are 3 units of height. The larger the gap between the two numbers the wider the display is going to be. Some digital photo frames automatically crop pictures to fit the display’s aspect ratio. If you have a frame that does crop photos with an aspect ratio different from the screen's aspect ratio, two sides of the photo are cropped so the screen is filled by the central portion of the image. Keep in mind, if you display portrait oriented images on a screen with a wide aspect ratio, they will either be very small on the screen or heavily cropped.
A lot of the time your digital photo frame will be turned off so you want to ensure that the frame itself looks nice even when it isn’t displaying your favorite photos.
Memory cards increase the number of photos the frame can display. The amount of pictures that can be displayed is limited to the size of the memory card. Try to find a frame that is compatible with the memory card you use in your camera. That way you’ll be able to switch your memory card between your camera and frame with ease.
Internal memory refers to the space or number of pictures the digital photo frame can save and store without the help of a memory card. Usually, the amount of internal memory is small. If you are hoping to display a large (or even moderate) amount of photos on your frame consider looking into purchasing a memory card with a large amount of memory space.
Most digital photo frames rely on AC power to run. However, some frames have built-in rechargeable batteries. Frames with rechargeable batteries are ideal if you plan on hanging your frame on the wall. This means the unsightly trailing wires will be seen only when the frame is being charged.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I increase the memory size to store more pictures on my DPD?
No. The internal memory of DPD is fixed and cannot be expanded. However, you could switch between different photos by using different memory cards on DPD.
Why doesn't my Digital Photo Frame show some of my photos?
Digital cameras take photos and store them in JPEG format according to camera industry standards. Digital Photo Frame is designed to show photos following the same industry standards. Some images, such as web images, scanned images, or photos in RAW format from professional cameras, are not stored according to camera industry standards and therefore cannot be correctly displayed on Digital Photo Frame. Use PC applications to convert such images into standard JPEG format for Digital Photo Frame.
Is the LCD screen touch-enabled?
The LCD screen is not touch-enabled. Use the buttons on the back to control Digital Photo Frame.
Can I print photos from Digital Photo Frame?
No, it does not support direct photo printing.
Why doesn't my Digital Photo Frame go into Auto-off status after I set it?
First, make sure you set CURRENT TIME, AUTO OFF at, and AUTO ON at correctly. Digital Photo Frame will automatically turn off its display exactly at the AUTO OFF time. If the time has already passed for the day, it will start entering AUTO OFF status at the specified time from the next day.
Will the LCD screen be damaged if I keep showing the same photo for a long time?
No. Digital Photo Frame can display the same photo continuously for 1,000 hours without any damage to the LCD screen.
