digital photo frame & my pictures
« on: September 15, 2008, 02:28 AM »


I bought a digital photo frame, with the following specs:

7"  16 x 9 display

Most of my pictures are shoot with a sony DSC-T100, @ 3264 x 2448

My question is what is the best way to put the pictures on my USB flash and connect it to the digital frame?

If I put them as they are they are displayed stretched and occupy unneeded space in the 1GB usb flash that I devoted to the digital frame.

For best display do I have to crop them or change pixels or photo's dimensions?

I mostly use compupic for resizing and the relevant window is like this:

Each photo frame will have a native display size in pixels. In theory, you can resize photos to that size and it will work perfectly. In practice, I've tended to see better results from using larger sizes and letting the frame work out how to do the display.

The software on each frame is something that you can only test out by trial and error. Many 16:9 frames aren't actually 16:9 when it comes to it.

It's worth testing a number of options, with one photo each.
Cropping and Resizing to the number of pixels the frame displays natively.
Cropping to the dimensions the frame displays natively (apparently 16:9).
Leaving the photo untouched.

Whichever is true, you will only fill the frame if all the photos have one orientation (portrait or landscape).
