Features to Look For
High resolution LCD screens like the 800 x 600 pixel displays in some of the 8 inch Digital Photo Frames offer great looking images. WiFi adds a little complexity to the setup process but it makes it easy to load photos from any computer in your house. Many Digital Photo Frames can play MP3 files on built-in speakers so you can play a soundtrack with your picture show. Some players also support QuickTime, AVI, and MPEG-1 and MPEG-4 video files so you can play movies on your picture frame.
