Picture it: You have a memory stick full of digital pictures, and you really want to display them, but somehow, the notion of printing every single one just doesn’t appeal to you. Or maybe you have printed a bunch of them out, but you haven’t got the time to mount and frame them. Thankfully, we live in an age of technological magic, and there is such a thing as a digital picture frame.
I have to confess, when I first heard the phrase, I thought, “Digital picture frame? A normal one won’t work?” But then I took a look at the website for DigitalFramez, and realized that what they’re actually selling is essentially a small monitor screen bordered like a photo frame, attached to a card reader. You plug in your memory stick or data key, and it lets you display any digital photo.
Frames come in sizes from 7 to 10 inches, and run from $99 to $199. They come with a remote, so you can change the setting of your digital frame on the fly, and – how cool is this? – these you can even show short movie clips, the kind you take with a regular camera, on a digital picture frame. It’s just like having one of the talking pictures from the Harry Potter books.
Oh, and if you’re worried that digital frames won’t match your decor – don’t. They’re not all shiny and metallic. Some are wooden, and some are clear acrylic, as well.
DigitalFramez.com ships worldwide, according to their website, but you should contact them if you have any questions.
