  2. Provide an option to download pictures to your PC

    We have people from all over submitting pictures to our frame to keep Mom up to date on our lives. I wish we could download them to my PC both for backup, but also to be able to make prints and videos incorporating those photos.

  3. Please remove the "bounce effect" when manually going thru pictures; it's really annoying!

    The bounce effect is nice the first 2 or 3 times it is used; after that, it just gets annoying; and it is even more so for older people that are not used to this kind of glitz....and of course, older folks are the majority of users.

    The bounce effect also seems to slow down the ability to progress rapidly through pictures. If you must keep this effect, make it optional.

    This brings up another request. It would be nice to be able to manually move quickly through an album. Moving one picture at a time is tedious (especially with…

    Hello,

    Could you contact us by email at ’ info@pix-star.com ’ we will give you an updated version without this bounce effect.

    To navigate more quickly inside an album that is playing in the slide show use the THUMBNAIL this has been design for quick navigation.

    When slideshow is playing, press the MENU button then choose the 3rd button from bottom the thumbnail will open then navigate quickly to the picture you want to show and press OK/Play to play it back in slide show.

  5. Allow web albums to be sent to the frame for offline use

    Please add a way to send albums (or selected images in a web album) to the frame for offline use.

    Alternatively, add a new album type to the web page, Frame Album, that is automatically copied to the frame, much like the e-mail inbox.

    Hello,

    It is already like this.

    All web albums are completely downloaded to the frame’s local memory and stay inside the memory so that even without Wi-Fi you can play them.

    It is NOT streaming.

  6. Plan for extra utilization of your server resources around holidays - e.g. Christmas...

    It is reasonable to expect significantly increased traffic around holidays, especially Christmas. Lease extra capacity from providers, like Amazon.

  7. Allow user the ability to delete an album.

    It appears the only way to delete an album is to click on each of 500+ photos one at a time. This is very low tech. I should be able to click on an album and click on the delete selection button and the entire album be deleted.

    Hello,

    Actually there is still this feature, no problem.

    Same as on the previous Android Pix-Star app, no change.

    1- if your mobile phone has physical buttons there are 2 methods to adjust slide show interval:

    a- by clicking on the MENU button when the slide show is playing and a menu shows up inside you can change the interval.

    b- or by clicking more than 2 seconds with your finder on the picture when slide show is playing this same menu shows up too.

    2- If your mobile phone has no physical buttons (for example the “Next”) then use the 2nd method above:

    - by clicking more than 2 seconds with your finder on the picture when slide show is playing this same menu shows up too.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Hello,

    We’ve just put online a new version that adds this feature. You can download it directly from the frame at the bottom of the main menu, a notification should be visible now.

    Thank you for this suggestion.

    Hello,

    This feature already exist you can activate it in the menu change settings then go to “slide show” and here to “play mode”, inside either use the mode " show latest pictures " or the mode " repeat latest pictures more often".

  13. Create a handheld product so grandmas can keep in their purse

    I have a friend who, due to a stroke, is struggling with mastering a smartphone. She loves her Pix Star frame at home, but would also love a phone-sized device that could passively receive photos and let her take it with her when lunching with friends.

  14. Ethernet vs. WIFI

    A family member does not have WIFI and so would need to hook directly into their cable modem via ethernet. What is the best solution? And which frame do you recommend?

  18. User interface needs a key/legend

    The page where I can view my photo Inbox has a green light besides some photos and a red light besides others. I have no idea what this means. Thanks!

    Hello,

    If you gently put the mouse on the little red or green dot (without clicking on it) you get a pop up window showing up with the relevant detailed explanation of the meaning of the red and green dot.

  19. Internet Radio Station: What type of stream URL format does this device use?

    I found a couple station URL's that work. But other formats don't. Can you provide more technical detail as to how the URL stream format needs to be sent.
