  3. play video, preferably from folder of mixed photos and video

    I store folders of mixed photo and short video clips (like from a vacation). It would be nice if when I select that folder to play a slideshow, the frame play BOTH the photos and video clips that are in the same folder. I don't think video is currently supported, but wouldn't that be cool to see a mixed photo and video slideshow?

  4. Ability to add/edit picture subtitle through the web interface

    Currently, one can choose to add a subtitle to a picture by entering it as the email title. However, it is impossible to edit that subtitle (or add one) through the web interface. This is a weird design choice and one of the most important missing features in my opinion.

  5. Synchronise picture frame clock with web time server

    Hi, I've noticed that the clock in the picture frame slowly drifts over time, this results in the time that my frame switches on and off gradually shifting. As the frame already has access to the internet, could you please consider adding a feature where the frame re-synchronises the clock (perhaps via an NTP server) possibly once a day? This would prevent any drift and keep the clock super accurate. You could even get the clock to auto adjust for daylight savings time.

  6. I like the random mode, but I'd like to have new pictures displayed more frequently.

    Random mode keeps the frame from being predictable, and I like that. But if you have a lot of pictures and you send a few new ones, it may be a long time before the new ones display. An option to show newer pictures more frequently would be fun.

  7. Why is there no ability to rotate the pictures on the web interface?

    Rotating pictures on the web interface is necessary for those looking after a frame. Otherwise the elderly person needs to sit with the crappy remote and hit 6 or 7 buttons QUICKLY everytime a infrequent picture comes up.....not everyone sits there with the remote in their hand waiting to rotate. Please fix this.

  8. Show photo creation time based on EXIF ( YYYY/MM ) and show the folder name

    We have start to use Your photo frame product with a very large satisfaction.

    But all the peoples whos see the photos ask the same questions all the time :


    • when this picture has taken ?

    • where You take this picture ?

    I suggest, if it’s possible, please extend the feature set in Your firmware with the following :


    • show photo creation time ( the year or year/month sufficient ) based on EXIF information


    • show the folder name of the actual pictures ( we are separating the photos in different folders, like „Barcelona trip” or „Birthday party…”


    Thanks

    Andras

  9. Weather should update hourly

    Weather should update hourly. Only updates once a day early morning which is very misleading in the afternoon.

  10. Ability to select multiple albums to display

    Dear Support,
    I suggest to improve Your service with ability to select multiple albums to display. Because AFAIK I can select one or all albums located on web or local.
    Would be very nice to select multiple albums.
    Thanks in advance,
    T

  12. Play video from Web Albums

    Would be really nice if the frame could play videos from Web Albums (Google Photos, etc.)...is it possible to add that functionality, or is it out of the question?

  13. Allow color temperature adjustment

    All 3 frames I've set up display pics much cooler (bluer) than they appear on any other device or in print (and much cooler than intended). Skin tones look zombie-ish. A firmware update allowing adjustment to a warmer color temperature globally would make this a perfect frame. As is, it makes all your good photographic work for naught...

    Hello,

    This was a technical limitation on older hardware.

    Since November 1st, 2015, all new Pix-Star sold on the market have now the possibility to adjust Saturation and HUE in addition to Brightness.

    The Pix-Star Team.

  14. Change album automaticaly every day

    The ability to have a new album played every day from the differents web album.

  15. User specified sort order

    I would like to be able to drag & drop images on the web interface to rearrange the order of images to be displayed.

    If that is not feasible, then I would like to be able to specify new files names and be able to sort by the file name.

  17. Support High Efficiency Image Format (.HEIC files)

    Apple switched to .HEIC files a couple years ago and Android is adopting them as well, but these files don't appear on my Pix-Star PXT510WR04 FotoConnect XD 10.4 inch. Please update the firmware of existing frames to support Support High Efficiency Image Format. I know my phone can be configured to use JPEG files, but configuring my phone to overcome a limitation of a PIx-Star frame isn't the way to promote Pix-Star in 2019 and beyond.

    In the meantime, please add a Knowledge Base article describing High Efficiency Image Format, the plan for Pix-Star support, and which frames will support…

  18. Onedrive not really working

    I'm not sure if you realize this but most of my pictures are on OneDrive and I finally looked into why I keep seeing the same pictures over and over. It looks to me that you only look at the root and never show pictures within folders which really needs to get fixed, my other frame (different MFR) does show all pictures in all folders.

  19. show date metadata - similar to display details - show folder name, picture name, email details

    It would be really nice to be able to show the date the picture was taken (pulled from file properties) on the actual image showing on the frame. There is already the option to show Folder Name - Picture Name - Email Details.
