There was a time when the Digital Picture Frame market was really high. I honestly don’t remember when that was, but it could have been shortly before or after the smartphone revolution. I mean, once we started getting really good at taking pics, we had to have a place to put them on display, right?
Especially when there is a whole generation of senior citizens who haven’t embraced smartphones, but want all the pictures of their children and grandchildren on handy display. It is almost who these digital picture frames are targeted for.
I case you haven’t guessed by the name, the PhotoSpring 10 Frame has a 10-inch screen, and it is fully touchable. In fact, the first thing it will ask you to do after you plug it in is connect to your Wi-Fi network, and it will take you password as well.
From there, you have to set up an account, and then you can download pics of whatever it is that you want. It is possible to do this from your laptop/desktop, or you can use an app from a smartphone/tablet.
I am told that it holds 16 GB, or 12 GB for user storage, good enough for 10,000 photos. It can even do video footage as well. Now, there are some ports on the back like a USB and SD card, but I tried to connect a thumb drive with photos, and I couldn’t get the frame to recognize it.
I am also having some trouble with the WiFi, and I hope this is a problem that will clear itself up.
You should be able to purchase the PhotoSpring 10 Frame for about $149 off the PhotoSpring site. You can also get the Premium version for about $169 here.
