Frame I met a pysanky artist, at my Ukrainian Center bazaar, who created a slide show of her work using a digital frame. My first instinct was that the frame would be useful for my pysanky classes, to demonstrate a processes or to show past class photos, or show my own pysanky.
In the photo to the left, I am demonstrating at an art school open house. Several people stopped to watch my demo and many watched the digital slide show, which were slides of a previous class of 17 held at this center.
What frame should I buy? I researched "digital frames" by going to stores like Target, Best Buy, Walmart, etc., to look at frame sizes on the market. I opened boxes, I read the descriptions, and finally chose a 10.1" HP, which stores up to 1250 photos, that was within my price range. If you find any frame size smaller, it is too difficult to see details in photos.
Be sure to buy a frame that allows you to insert a memory card and memory stick! This will enable you to fix up your images in Photoshop and then move them to the frame via a memory stick. Also look for a frame that has a USB port connector, so that you can upload photos directly from your laptop or Ipad. The smaller models don't have the port cable.
Organizing Photos You can organize photos into folders for different slide shows. You can adjust the speed, transitions, etc, just like with any computer slide show.
Down-side My digital frame only works by pugging it in to an outlet, it does not work on batteries. So I always carry an extension cord, in case I am not set up close to an outlet.
