1.0 out of 5 stars Big Surprise -- No Portrait Capability, December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ViewSonic 8-Inch Digital Photo Frame (VFD820-70) (Electronics)
This frame physically cannot sit in a portrait orientation [600x800]-- when you put it on a table or desk, it's in landscape orientation [800x600]. A real big surprise, especially compared to other ViewSonic frames that will sit on a table at either orientation, that is not disclosed by specs info. I bought two, so it gets one star to help warn people; for landscape only users, about four stars,

Reviewing the specs - and more importantly the pictures - could have helped.

Have you tried resizing your photo? I know changing from landscape to portrait would create a smaller image but it might work for certain pictures, if at least smaller in size.
Just a thought.

Thx for the thought, but I shoot in both portrait & landscape & bought 2 digital frames so I can display both orientations. BTW, I resize everything (in a copy) to the digital frame's resolution (800x600 for these guys). You can display a lot of pics this way.
