The ability to email photographs straight to the frame was a much-praised feature, and it was especially important to those who wanted to send pictures to older and less tech-savvy family members.

What experts didn't like
You can see a gallery and choose an image to display, and you can pause the slideshow on an image indefinitely, but if you run the slideshow you're stuck with one speed and one aggressive wipe from one picture to the next.

Aspect Ratio is a issue that goes in at hand with the monitor dimension. Relying at the dimension of the display show, it will reinforce both four:three or 16:9 aspect ratios.

An Overview On Picture Frames

In addition to photographs, picture frames are excellent for displaying artwork, special certifications and even memorabilia, like ticket stubs or Broadway playbills. Adding picture frames to your wall or setting them on a mantle can make a house feel like a home.

If you’re in the market for a new picture frame, make sure you first consider how you want to hang the photo. Some frames only come with wall hooks, while others, like the Americanflat Picture Frame with Mat, 11×14, come with mounting materials. Check that you’ll be able to display the photo either vertically or horizontally, so you can set it just the way you want it.

There’s also the option of going with a frame that can be displayed on a shelf. For example, the AmazonBasics Picture Frame, 8×10 has an easel-back that allows the photo to rest on any flat surface.

Carefully inspect the frame to ensure it is sturdy and durable. The RPJC Solid Wood Picture Frame with Mat, 11×14 is made of solid wood and has a glass front to protect photos from dust and accidental scratches. The back is equipped with easy-open tabs for inserting and removing photos as often as you like. You can even get the frame in one of eight different colors.

Of course, in this high-tech world, you may want to go with a digital picture frame. This type of frame allows you to upload pictures and display them in a slideshow. The Skylight Frame Digital Picture Frame, 10in actually connects to your home Wi-Fi and uses a special email to electronically transfer pictures to the frame.

DYWM Fun Fact

One of the first picture frames ever constructed was found in an Egyptian grave between 50-70 AD. The frame was made from wood and was used to display a picture of an unknown woman.

Surprisingly, picture frames are not subject to copyright law. Anyone can copy another person’s design and sell it as their own. Perhaps this is why there are so many similarly styled frames on the market. While classic frames are more likely to match the rest of your home decor, it can be more exciting to go with a uniquely designed frame that is more of a conversation starter.

The Picture Frame Buying Guide

  • It’s good practice to dust your picture frames regularly to reduce the allergens in your home. This is especially important if anyone in the home is sensitive to dust, dust mites or pollen. A damp microfiber cleaning cloth will work well for this task.
  • Cleaning a digital picture frame should be done with care. Stick with cleaning solutions specifically designed for use on LCD screens.
  • Before purchasing a digital picture frame, find out if you’re required to open a paid account to view pictures and videos.
  • Protect your purchase when buying picture frames that are on the expensive side by going with a company that offers a satisfaction guarantee or your money back.
  • Size, construction and the number of frames in a set all play a roll in the cost of a picture frame. The RPJC Solid Wood Picture Frame with Mat, 11×14 and the Americanflat Picture Frame with Mat, 11×14 are the most affordable frames, thanks to their simplistic designs. The AmazonBasics Picture Frame, 8×10 costs just a little bit more, thanks to the addition of a second picture frame. You’ll find the Skylight Frame Digital Picture Frame, 10in has the biggest price tag, but that’s because it uses digital technology that requires connecting to your home Wi-Fi.
