  1. Allow photos to be displayed in order by upload date.

    I would like the option to view my photos in chronological order. I would like to be able to chose a sort order for my Frame photos that includes by upload date.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Weather should update hourly

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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. Create iPhone and iPad app

    Create an app the will allow the user to manage their pix star account. Currently I am unable to move pictures while on the web site account using my iPad

  10. 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.

  11. Add image name and properties to display

    Add an option to display image name, folder (=web album) name, tags from image properties to the display

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Yes - please make a larger size and I will buy it

    It would be great to have a larger size frame. I love the current one and would want to buy another one - but larger.

  17. Remove pictures from Web Albums

    Not all pictures from a web album I'd like to share on my Pix Star. For example if I share my Timeline photos from Facebook, I'd like to hide certain ones. Can that be a feature in the future?

  18. Use email subject as picture name

    I wonder if it may be possible for the Frame to use the email subject as the picture title. This would make it so much easier to name pictures so that the recipient can identify what they're looking at!

  19. Auto sync network time with a manual time zone

    I went from Central Daylight Time (CDT) to Central Standard Time (CST) last Sunday night (2017/11/05 at 2 AM).

    The pixstar is set to auto sync with the network time.

    The pixstar still says its 1 hour fast. I.E. Right now its:

    $ date
    Wed Nov 8 08:03:43 CST 2017

    But the pixstar says its: 09:03:43 !!!! I.E. it is set to the Eastern Standard Time (EST).

    You should have a manual time zone.

  20. Select multiple Albums

    I would like a "Switch Slide Show" option to select more than one album (but not all albums).
    Basically check off which albums to play.
