What are the best 15-inch digital picture frames on the market?
15-inch digital picture frames have a lot to offer aside from their big display and immersive viewing experience. There’s a lot more that goes into making a decent digital frame great, such as Wi-Fi, cloud storage, ease of use, sending/receiving pictures, video playback, multi-frame control groups, and much more. Here we’re looking at the best premium 15-inch digital photo frames to help you learn what to look for, where to find it, and what these frames can do for you, your home, and your family!
Pix-Star’s 15-inch digital picture frames have almost everything you’d need from a premium digital frame. Free-for-life cloud storage and automatic backups keep all of your – and your family’s – pictures, videos, and audio messages safe. You can manage your cloud storage from anywhere in the world via the web interface effortlessly.
Pix-Star’s frames can be grouped into multi-frame control groups where you can remotely adjust their settings, link web albums (picture albums from external sources like social media profiles), manage local & cloud storage, and much more. These multi-frame control groups are perfect for families and those with elderly users as you can always ensure that everyone in the family gets all of the latest photos as you load them. You don’t need to sit through long and frustrating phone calls trying to explain how the frames work for grandparents.
Pix-Star’s frames come with access to a fluid mobile app that lets you load photos to the frame from anywhere in the world. The Pix-Star Snap mobile app lets you send up to 250 photos to several frames at the same time. There’s no need to create an account and the mobile app is free to use. Additionally, you can send videos & audio messages to any Pix-Star frame via its unique email address.
Pix-Star’s 15-inch frame is immersive thanks to the 4:3 aspect ratio and intuitive interface. Slideshow settings can be adjusted without having to exit the slideshow, and you even change most of these settings remotely. You have fine control over the play order & frequency of photos within slideshows and can easily manage which sources are included in which slideshows.
These are excellent value-for-money 15-inch frames. They’re selling at massive discounts right now and you can browse through their product catalog at the Pix-Star Shop. They’re some of the best value-for-money large digital frames on the market at the moment.
How to send photos to Pix-Star’s 15-inch digital picture frames?
The best way to send photos to the Pix-Star 15-inch digital picture frame is through the Pix-Star Snap mobile app. You don’t need to create an account to use the frame – and unlike some other premium frames – you don’t need to unlock the app through a premium subscription. The mobile app lets you send photos, videos, and audio notes to several other Pix-Star frames at the same time. All you need is the receiving frame’s email address (and the frames need to be online & registered).
Another great way to send photos to a digital picture frame is by email. Pix-Star was the company that created the idea of a digital picture frame with a unique email address for receiving photos wirelessly. You simply need to add the photos as attachments to an email and send them to your frame(s) dedicated email address. The receiving frame can even be set to automatically display newly received photos in the current slideshows – making sure you don’t miss an important update.
Finally, Pix-Star’s web album feature lets you import picture albums from social media, photo-sharing, and online storage platforms. Web albums are saved directly to the Pix-Star frame’s internal storage and can be included in slideshows – even when the frame is offline. Pix-Star’s web albums can be set to automatically updated & sync when new photos are added to the connected albums. Additionally, web albums can be linked to several receiving frames and slideshows can be remotely started from any synced web albums.
Can 15-inch digital picture frames display artwork?
15-inch digital picture frames are excellent for displaying artwork thanks to their large immersive displays. You can easily display both portrait and landscape artwork on frames like the Pix-Star as they support both orientations. Pix-Star’s 15-inch digital frame can also mount on the wall with its standard VESA mount support (actual mount bought separately) and dedicated hanging holes. Even the attachable stand lets you switch quickly between orientations.
Make sure that the art you load to the frame is in a supported format and that it matches the frame’s aspect ratio – which is a big reason why we recommend getting a 4:3 digital frame (they’re more versatile and broadly compatible with most pictures).
Where to put 15-inch digital picture frames?
15-inch digital picture frames are often mounted on the wall as their large size makes them easy to see from across the room. These frames usually have broad viewing angles and immersive displays that are perfect for high-traffic spots around the house. Common places to place your digital picture frame include the living room, dining room, master bedroom, guest bedroom, entrance, common area, etc.
Avoid mounting or placing your digital photo frame in direct sunlight or where it’s at risk of getting wet. Most digital frames aren’t waterproof and can be damaged by being in a small room that gets humid such as a bathroom or some kitchens.
Are 15-inch digital picture frames too big?
Compared to the big-screen TVs, computers, monitors, and tablets, we’re so used to, you won’t likely find 15-inch digital picture frames to be too big. They’re just the right size for big rooms, homes, and families. They’re quite unique in that they offer a very immersive yet personalized viewing experience that many 10-inch digital frames can’t quite offer.
It’s worth noting that 15-inch digital frames are usually around 30% more expensive than 10-inch frames – and there aren’t quite as many digital frames to choose from. While 10-inch frames are still the most common size on the market by far – 15-inch frames could still be the perfect choice for your home & family. Demand for these larger digital frames has been steadily growing – and that’s not likely to change anytime soon.
