How do I send photos to my Pix-Star digital frame Wi-Fi?
The Pix-Star digital frame Wi-Fi offers quite a few different ways to send photos to the frame. Like most other digital frames, you can load photos via USB/SD card view them directly on the frame – or copy them across to the 8GB internal storage. This is the most common way to send photos to digital frames, especially with cheap frames. Note that all photos (including web albums) are saved to the Pix-Star’s internal storage and can be viewed while offline.
The easiest and quickest way to send photos to your Pix-Star digital frame with Wi-Fi is with the Pix-Star Snap mobile app. You can take pictures and record videos & audio directly through the app, or you can select and send media from your phone’s gallery. There’s also an option to send entire folders of media to your frame. The Pix-Star Snap mobile app lets you send up to 250 photos to multiple frames at the same time. It’s a great feature for large families and helps to reduce the time cost and effort related to sending photos to several frames in the family.
Through the web interface, you can link photo albums on your favorite social media and photo-sharing platforms directly to your frame. They’re automatically synced and updated each time new photos are added to the linked accounts. The web albums are saved to the frame’s internal storage so that they can be viewed offline in slideshows. Additionally, the web interface can be used to export all your photos and to manage all connected frames’ photos and cloud storage.
Sending photos by email is another very common method. Pix-Star created the idea of a digital photo frame with email and has long since mastered the system. All you have to do is add the photos as attachments to an email and send it your frame’s unique email address. This can be done from any device and from anywhere in the world. These photos are saved to the Pix-Star frame’s internal storage and can also be viewed while the frame is offline.
Is the Pix-Star digital frame Wi-Fi good for big families?
Features like multi-frame control, a smooth user interface across the mobile app, web interface, and frame, and free-for-life & unlimited cloud storage make the Pix-Star an excellent choice for large families.
You can control up to 25 frames from a single user account. It’s all done through the web interface via your dashboard. You can add all the Pix-Star frames in your family – regardless of where they live and how long they’ve had the frame for. Once they’re added, you can manage all of the photos and remotely control the frame to start slideshows, change settings, create new albums & folders, etc.
The Pix-Star Snap mobile app is very capable, letting you send new photos, videos, and audio notes directly to all the Pix-Star frames in the family at the same time. You don’t need to spend hours sorting through photos and making sure that everybody receives them.
Web albums are another great feature for large families – especially if they have elderly users like grandparents that don’t want to be left out. Once you’ve linked your favorite social media and photo-sharing sites to your frame (done via the web interface), all the photos in the selected albums will be synced to and saved on all linked Pix-Star frames.
Each time you add new photos to the linked albums, the new photos will automatically sync and download to your Pix-Star frame. All you have to do is add photos from your latest trip to an album that’s connected to all frames, and everybody in your family will see them on their frames.
Can the Pix-Star digital frame work without Wi-Fi?
Thanks to 8GB of internal storage and USB/SD card support, you can use the Pix-Star digital picture frame without Wi-Fi. This is a great solution if you live in a remote area or don’t have consistent Wi-Fi access. You can download all the pending photos and media when you connect to a Wi-Fi network for later use. All received photos are saved to the frame’s internal storage (including imported web albums) and slideshows can be started and managed without needing an internet connection.
In the unlikely case, you’re running low on storage space, you can use an inserted USB/SD card as expandable storage or as a source to play photos, videos, and audio from. Note that while you’re not connected to Wi-Fi, you won’t receive any photos send from the mobile app, email, or web interface. You’ll need to reconnect to a reliable network to start the syncing process.
Is the Pix-Star digital frame Wi-Fi worth the money?
If you need a frame that’s capable enough to handle the needs of a big family with elderly users without sacrificing versatility and functionality for the individual user – the Pix-Star is an excellent choice. You’re getting one of the most popular frames on the market. It’s packed full of useful features and focuses on ease of use and an immersive viewing experience.
Unlike many other premium digital picture frames, the Pix-Star frame doesn’t have any subscription fees, recurring monthly or annual fees, one-off fees, or hidden costs. You get all features fully unlocked and ready to go – including features like unlimited cloud storage and multimedia support (often locked behind paywalls with most top frames).

You’ll find that Pix-Star frames quickly become an important part of how you connect and share precious memories and moments with your loved ones.
How to remotely control a Pix-Star digital frame over Wi-Fi?
Log in to your dashboard at Pix-Star.com. Near the top-left of the screen, you’ll see your frame name “email@example.com”. Just under that is a clickable “Configure frame” option. Alternatively, in the left-side panel, scroll down to the bottom where you’ll see “My Frame Configuration”. Click on either of these to be taken to the remote-control dashboard for your Pix-Star frame.
Make sure your frame is online by turning it on and connecting to Wi-Fi. Here you’ll see all the remotely adjustable settings for your frame. You can change settings, start slideshows, adjust the screen brightness & colors, and much more. Note that changes might not be immediate and can be delayed slightly, so don’t stress if you don’t see an immediate response.
