Enjoy Your Digital Photos With Affordable Digital Picture Frames

in Digital

Everyone takes photos of their favorite moments to save forever. It used to be that the only way to do that was to place all your pictures into an album or a book. This requires film, developing and other costs that could be substantial. The advent of digital cameras has changed all that.

Affordable digital picture frames allow you to transfer pictures from your digital camera directly into the picture frame. The digital photo frame turns those pictures into a slide show on an endless loop. So you can enjoy those pictures for a long time to come as well as share them with friends and family when they visit.

Now, as with all things electronic, all affordable digital picture frames are not created equal. There are some tips to follow when selecting one, so let us look at a few considerations:

1. Do not pick one based on a brand name alone. Just because it carries a big brand name does not mean that it is the best selection you can make. There are several lesser known brands that are just as good and work just as well as the major ones.

2. Consider the user. This is especially true if you are looking for an affordable digital picture frame as a gift. Most are easy to use and very straightforward in operation. But there are some that may be a bit more advanced in downloading procedures, features and special effects. Of course, if the frame has special display effects (how the pictures transition from one to the other), it may be somewhat more expensive.

3. Resolution is important and is measured in pixels. A pixel is one small square of the image based on number of rows across and down. Basic digital picture resolution is 640 (across) x 480 pixels (down). The higher those numbers are, the clearer and sharper the pictures will be.

4. Next is something called aspect ratio. Affordable digital picture frames will have one of two aspect ratios; 4:3 or 15:9. Since most digital cameras capture images in 4:3, a digital frame that displays in 4:3 will probably be the best fit for your photos. The 15:9 aspect ratio frame will crop (cut off) the top and bottom of the image to fit it into the display area on the frames screen. Sort of like the wide screen and full screen formats on DVD's. I hope this clarifies things a bit more.

5. Last, you want to consider the place where the frame will be displayed. Affordable digital picture frames can be purchased in a range of sizes. If you plan to display it in a lower, easily accessible area, a smaller one may be the way to go. If it is going on top of a curio cabinet or something, you may want to consider a larger display size so it can be seen clearly.

No matter what the situation, it is possible to find an affordable digital picture frame that will fit your needs. In any case, you will be able to enjoy those pictures yourself or share them with visitors. Also, the pictures loaded on the digital photo frame can be changed at any time, so the versatility is there, all at an overall affordable price.
