Ability to select multiple albums to display
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,
Pix-Star 10 inch and 15 inch sold after nov. 1st, 2014 have now the possibility to play a selection of web albums.

I just rec'd my 10" frame as a Christmas gift (12-2018) and this is only partially true. From the website I select multiple albums and a message pops up that I can select only one.....or, of course, I can view ALL of them. No in-between. On the frame itself, I can select specific albums to view; however, the frame will not allow me to see more than 8 albums in the viewfinder, so my 9th album is and beyond are unavailable. The good news is that the website should be an easier fix than the frames!!
How? I have a new 15 in and it seems that it will only play one album at a time.
Go inside you web album menu inside the provider name for example " pixstar" and you can see them there.
contact our customer support if needed.

So Pixstar.... When will the ability to select particular albums to display be available on the 10" frame? I have the latest version of software but still only have pixstar and weather as options to select.
Referring to Pix-Star response of February 16, 2015 ... though that is useful, it would be really key to be able to do it remotely through the site. When will that be enabled?
Thank you. I see this. But this doesn't really do what I was hoping. I want to pick between albums I made on the Pixstar website. Of album 1,2,3,4 I want to play 1 then disable it and play 2 and 4, then 3 and so on. Can I do that? If not, I would like to submit this and an idea.
on the 15 inch go to the menu " my web album pictures" inside the frame then to the provider, here you see your albums and you have a button on the second line to select the albums. This does not exist on old 10 inch and is not supported.
Hello, I have a 15 inch frame bought after November 1. How do I do this? Also have a 10 inch I've had for several years. Great products. Would like to be able to do this on both. Please advise. Thank you! Caren Pourciau
To select multiple albums you can only do this from the frame itself, go to
my web album pictures
menu then go to picasa, inside you have a button to multi select.
Admin, can you tell me how to do this? I've got all my Picasa albums on my pixstar online page, but only see an option to play all albums, or none, from the frame menu.
I think I agree with Tamas. I would like to play different albums at different times - for instance - my "family" photos album when they are visiting; my "friend" photos album when friends are visiting and my "grandchildren" album when the kiddos come.
Any chance that could happen? Thanks
Agree, would be great to allow display selected web albums and not only one or all.
I have many and wanted form time to time refresh and disaply the last 10 albums for example
Many thank !
Selecting multiple albums to display would be a really nice and useful feature. Moreover, the multiple checkbox interface is already existing.
That is a user case: With hundreds of albums and thousands of pictures, I would like to display only the 5-6 latest albums.

It would be great to be able to select multiple, but not all, web albums to display. I have a lot of web albums and I manage the frame for my mother in a different state. If she gets tired of the contents of a specific album it would be great if I could turn off that album for awhile but leave all the others running.

I think what would be great is to play one or more "web albums" (not linked, rather images on your servers) PLUS emailed pictures. That would automatically put the newest images on the frame (coming from multiple family members sending them in) plus an edited list of old time favorites "Favorites" web album, plus perhaps another topical web album. You might want to use "Pix-Star" album (your servers) rather than the more generic "Web" album (could be any online service) to differentiate and clarify for your users.

I believe this user is mistaken, in that, the PixStar will retrieve images from as many linked web albums as you have selected. As an example, I have linked to facebook plus several sub-albums on SmugMug plus the weather in three cities. They all appear randomly. Since there are literally thousands of web images, the user may not "believe" all web albums are being polled, but they are! Put the frame into "collage" mode to see more of your photos at the same time for faster cycling.
