How to Print and Frame Digital Pictures the Right Way!


What is the best way to print and frame digital pictures?

The best way to print and frame digital pictures is to get a digital frame. Digital frames offer immersive displays and versatile slideshows, along with internal storage space and USB/SD card support to let you transfer and view all of your favorite moments & memories.

Many of the best digital picture frames like the Pix-Star let you send photos, videos, and audio messages to their frames remotely from anywhere in the world. This is done via Wi-Fi through mobile apps, email, web interfaces, and importing photo albums from social media & photo-sharing platforms.

None of these features are universally offered, and most cheap & mid-range digital frames don’t offer any Wi-Fi or cloud connectivity. Only a handful of the best digital frames like the Pix-Star can cater to the needs of families without excluding elderly users. Other features like free-for-life cloud storage, automatic backups, remote control functionality, and video & audio support are more commonly found among premium frames than with cheaper frames.

If you’re going to get a digital picture frame, we suggest saving up a little longer and getting a top-end frame. Their 10 to 15-inch displays are well worth the wait, and they can bring you effortlessly closer to your loved ones. Photo-sharing won’t be such a headache, and top choices like the Pix-Star let you automate much of the photo-sharing process.

Which digital frames are the best for printing and framing digital pictures?

Pix-Star’s frames are probably the best digital frames for virtual printing and framing digital pictures. You can hold up to 30,000 photos on Pix-Star’s 8GB internal storage, start versatile and personalized slideshows from selected files & folders, and even play videos & audio files in these slideshows. Pix-Star’s frames also support USB/SD cards to let you transfer photos to the frame’s internal storage at any time – and the plug & play feature lets you start slideshow directly from the USB/SD card without first having to copy anything to local storage.

Pix-Star’s frames offer extensive Wi-Fi and cloud features such as the ability to send & receive photos from anywhere in the world, remotely manage any connected Pix-Star frame (up to 25 frames from a single user account), and import photos directly from social media & photo-sharing sites. Pix-Star’s frames offer access to the Pix-Star Snap mobile app and web dashboard, which makes photo-sharing & connection effortless for families and elderly users.

Can I print and frame digital pictures from my smartphone?

Picture frames with digital displays offer the perfect way to virtually print and frame digital pictures. Top digital frames like the Pix-Star can send & receive photos from anywhere in the world via mobile app, email, web interface, and even offline via USB/SD card. It’s worth noting that most cheap and mid-range digital frames don’t offer Wi-Fi or cloud connectivity – they only work through a combination of USB/SD card support and offline local storage.

Despite being premium digital frames, Pix-Star’s digital frames are very affordable (particularly their 10-inch digital photo frame). You get free-for-life cloud storage, free-for-life cloud storage, automatic cloud backups, and much more. Versatile slideshows and highly customizable frame settings let you set the frame up just the way you like.

Pix-Star’s frames can be wall-mounted as they support using a standard VESA mount and have built-in dedicated hanging holes. They can also be rested on a flat surface with the robust attachable stand (that also does a great job at hiding the power inlet cable).

Pix-Star’s frames can be remotely managed & controlled via the web dashboard no matter where you are. You can manage up to 25 connected Pix-Star frames from anywhere in the world, change their settings, start & manage slideshows, manage local & cloud storage, import photo albums from social media & photo-sharing sites, and much more.

Multiple secondary features include weather, web music & radio, video & audio support & playback, a mobile app & web interface, along with several fun brain games to pass the time. Pix-Star’s frames are arguably the most versatile premium digital frames on the market – and they offer excellent value for money compared to other top digital frames. You don’t need to pay for any extra recurring or hidden fees to unlock features like cloud storage, use of the mobile app, video playback, etc. (as is the case with Skylight and Nixplay digital frames).

How to print and frame digital pictures than play videos?

Many of the top digital frames not only let you print and frame digital pictures, but they also let you play video & audio files. For example, with Pix-Star’s frames, you can send pictures, videos, and audio messages to the frame via the Pix-Star Snap mobile app. These media files can then be displayed in slideshows that include (or exclude) video and audio files (videos can also be set to play muted or with their original sound).

Note that most cheap or mid-range digital frames cannot play videos or audio files. This is usually a feature that’s provided exclusively by high-end frames like the Pix-Star. Even in the premium, video & audio support isn’t universally offered. For example, Skylight and Nixplay frames require an additional subscription fee (paid annually) to unlock video support and use of the mobile app; Dragon Touch frames only offer 30-second video clip support, and Aura frames cannot play videos or audio files.

How many digital pictures can I print and frame on a digital frame?

Depending on the size of the digital frame’s internal storage, you can save and display up to 30,000 photos on a single frame. For example, Pix-Star’s digital frames have 8GB of internal storage, which is enough space for 20,000 to 30,000 photos – though this number might be less depending on their sending resolution (it’s best practice to match the frame’s native resolution), format, and whether you save video files to the frame too.

It’s worth noting that some top digital frames like the Pix-Star support USB/SD cards and offer a plug-and-play feature. This feature lets you play slideshows directly from an inserted USB/SD card on the frame’s display – all without needing to copy the USB/SD card’s content to the frame’s local storage first. Pix-Star also doesn’t place maximum limits on the USB/SD card’s capacity – giving you virtually unlimited storage space for viewable photos, videos, and audio files.
