Large Wall-Mounted Digital Photo Frames & Why Get One!


What are the best large wall-mounted digital photo frames for families?

Pix-Star’s 15-inch large wall-mounted digital photo frames are arguably the best large frames out there – both in terms of value for money and performance. These frames offer free-for-life cloud storage, extensive Wi-Fi connectivity & cloud-enabled features like automatic backups, access to a mobile app & web interface, and the ability to be remotely controlled from anywhere in the world.

Pix-Star’s 15-inch digital frames use a versatile 4:3 aspect ratio and play photos, videos, and audio. Unlike many other top digital frames, Pix-Star’s frames don’t charge any extra hidden or recurring fees. You can send videos using the mobile app or USB/SD card and they can be included in slideshows. Audio files, radio stations, and web music can be played over slideshows – offering a more immersive experience.

Pix-Star’s digital photo frames can be added to multi-frame control groups of up to 25 connected Pix-Star frames. You can use the web dashboard to remotely adjust their settings, start slideshows, manage storage (both local & cloud), change slideshow sources, and link web albums. Web albums are photo albums saved on social media & photo-sharing sites like Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive & Photos, etc. These web albums are saved to the frame’s internal storage and can be viewed in slideshows even while the frame is offline.

Pix-Star’s frames are one of the most versatile frames on the market – which is surprising when you consider how great their value for money is. Pix-Star’s frames are very easy to use, elderly-friendly, intuitive, and capable. They’re great choices for modern homes & families thanks to smart features and remote-control functionality. Pix-Star’s digital frames quickly become an important part of how you connect & share special moments & memories with your loved ones!

Can large wall-mounted digital photo frames be used to display art?

Large wall-mounted digital photo frames can be used to display art as long as the file formats are supported by the frame. Large digital frames are excellent for displaying art & photography thanks to their immersive displays, broad viewing angles, and versatility. You can create highly customized slideshows and breathe new life into your home gallery – or turn an ordinary room into a private showroom for your work.

For the optimal viewing experience, make sure the aspect ratio of the art/photograph matches the aspect ratio of the frame. This is one of the main reasons we recommend using a 4:3 aspect ratio. It better suits photos taken on cameras and a wide variety of artwork shapes & sizes than awkward aspect ratios like 16:9. It’s also worth noting that you should try to match the digital frame’s native resolution to save on storage space and avoid any odd cropping or distortion – though this isn’t an issue with premium frames like the Pix-Star.

How to send photos to large wall-mounted digital photo frames?

Most large wall-mounted digital photo frames fall into the mid or high-end of the market. Very few cheap digital frames have big displays or Wi-Fi connectivity. For all non-Wi-Fi digital frames, the only way to load photos to the frame is via USB/SD card. You usually need to copy the contents of the USB/SD card to the frame’s internal storage before viewing – though some frames offer a plug-and-play feature that lets you start slideshows directly from the inserted USB/SD card.

Most Wi-Fi digital photo frames like the Pix-Star offer multiple ways to load photos, videos, and audio messages to the frame. You can use mobile apps to send multiple photos (or entire albums) to several frames at the same time. Most premium digital photo frames offer a photo-mail feature that lets you email photos as attachments directly to your frames from anywhere in the world.

A less common method is loading photos via web albums. These are photo albums saved on your social media, online storage, and photo-sharing platforms. These albums are linked and synced to your frames via a mobile app or web interface. This is not a common feature and is only found on a handful of the best digital photo frames on the market like the Pix-Star. It’s an excellent way to make photo-sharing for the whole family quick & effortless – and lets elderly users get involved without needing to lift a finger!

How to set up a large wall-mounted digital photo frame?

Setting up a good large wall-mounted digital photo frame like the Pix-Star is exceptionally easy. They come with both a standard VESA mount and dedicated hanging holes. Pix-Star’s frames offer support for both landscape and portrait orientations – both with the hanging holes & the standard VESA mount.

Make sure to mount the frame on an area of the wall that’s out of direct sunlight – while still catering to as much of the room as possible. Make sure that nothing is blocking the frame’s remote-control sensor and motion/light sensor. Also ensure to keep the frame away from overly hot, humid, or wet areas like some kitchens and most bathrooms. Try to mount the frame in a room with a good internet signal/connection. This isn’t super-important and the frame doesn’t need to be mounted right next to the router.

Are large wall-mounted digital photo frames better than smaller frames?

This is probably one of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make when choosing the digital frames. Are large wall-mounted digital photo frames better? Who are they better for? Are they worth the extra money? These are all essential questions to ask before buying.

While large wall-mounted digital photo frames might seem like overkill at first glance, it’s important to remember that we’re used to big displays. Our TVs are getting bigger, brighter, and more versatile with each new generation. A large digital frame is generally considered to be any frame with a 12-inch display or larger.

The biggest difference is in their price. Larger digital frames are generally around 30% more expensive than smaller frames (for example, when comparing 15-inch frames with 10-inch frames). Another key consideration is their enhanced immersion and improved viewing experience.

Bigger displays mean broader viewing angles, longer viewing distances, being better suited to families & large rooms, etc. Much of this choice comes down to personal needs & preferences, so be sure to note what your most important personal, home, and family needs are before making your choice.
