Any suggestion to improve your Pix-Star?

Allow you to rename the photos and or add captions

Would be nice to have a very brief description/caption displayed with the photo

    I just set up my frame for the first time and this was the first thing that I tried to do. I see this was submitted in 2014 and is under review. I hope it launches very soon!

    Yes, I agree too. But, here is a short cut around it if you are a Mac user. Pull the photo you want to send onto your desktop. It will open in Preview. In Preview, you can add text to the photo. Then drag it back into Photos. You can then send it with a label.

    Is there any plans to add captions. I have thousands of pictures and would like the ability to identify each photo.

    This would be an awesome addition. I am reading through the suggestions and wholeheartedly agree with the request to add captions to photos. This is one of the key reasons why I will not recommend this digital frame to friends and colleagues.

    What is the status update on this? Please let us know. We have been waiting for a long time.

    I agree with the commenters before me. I've been looking around the guides and articles and FAQ to find out how to caption, or change the caption, for the photos.
    I see that the title of a folder shows up, so that can give the event and date, but I can't add names to individual photos. And when someone emails a photo, I know the subject line becomes the caption, but I can't find a way to fix any errors.
    Also, it's a bit confusing on the "Display Details" having a choice of "Picture Name" when it's just a string of letters and numbers that you can't change.
    I also would like to remove the words, "Web Album", that show up alongside the album's name. It makes it harder to read the album title.
    Thank you for making this digital photo frame that can have photos emailed to it! That makes a really big difference to our family.
    Thank you in advance for upgrading and incorporating these suggestions!
    You will be making many customers very happy!

    Still waiting. We need the ability to update captions on the website. It has been over 4 years now.

    I agree that clearly this company is not interested in allowing users to add captions to photos. Seems like such a basic thing. We travel frequently and my parents have no idea what they are looking at when we email a photo of a gorgeous cathedral or even where we are or what is going on. Very disappointing.

    I’m also very disappointed.

    Captions are really needed when sharing photos with family far away, and difficult to add when sharing with the phone app.

    I’m wondering now if we should have purchased the Nixplay instead. When friends who are considering a frame ask, I’ll certainly explain this big deal-breaker.

    Please fix it so we can change the captions on the website!

    Considering that this original question has been under review since December 2014, I assume Pix-Star doesn't want or isn't going to allow an option to fill in the subject once the picture has been loaded to the frame. Very disappointing.

    My emails with subject line "caption" are not showing up as comments on the pics on the photo frame. There is nothing on the picture

  • Lynn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Which field on email should be filled in for display on the photo screen?

  • Ronald DePiro commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Good Idea ... Now the young'uns can get info with the pix of great, great great, and 3+G Meme, Poppy etc.

  • Betsy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please allow this - captioning is important when someone is viewing the pictures sent by other people. Think about grand parents!

    Add a choice of font & color to the emailed subject line. White doesn't show up very well.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    If you email the pic to the frame it will use the subject line in the email as a caption. Wish it could be done via the app or frame itself but i could only find e-mailing pics one at a time with the subject line being "grabbed" as the caption...

    Il serait bien de pouvoir renommer les photos une fois enregistrées sur l'appareil. Cela permettrait aux lecteurs de mieux comprendre les photos (lieux, dates, personnes...) qui figurent sur cette photo
