  1. sync pix-star folders with my smugmug.com account

    Thanks for the wonderful digital picture frame! After using it for a couple days, I thought it would be even better if you could update it such that
    folders in my pix-star sync automatically with folders in my smugmug.com account. It will be a win-win-win for you and smugmug and users, for example, I will only need to upload once, either to smugmug or to pix-star, you will not worry about the memory limitation in pix-star (new folders can be downloaded to over write old ones), smugmug will expand the viewers with pix-star.

  2. Have the Clock and Calendar hide in the background while weather pages are displayed.

    I currently use the clock and calendar in the top right corner of the screen, however when any of the weather pages are displayed the clock and calendar cover and obscure the information on those pages in the upper right corner. It would be nice to have the clock and calendar disappear when the weather pages are displayed similar to how it disappears when the Daily Information page is displayed

  4. Transitions between pictures

    Is there anyway to select what transitions the frame uses to get to the next photo? I would choose to change photos more frequently but the wizy "Fly in" , "Spinning" and "Bouncing" transitions are distracting in a room.

    E.g. I would go for a simple fade in, fade out which would make the frame more subtle and allow me to choose more frequent picture changes.

    YES, you can.

    When the slide show is playing just press MENU button. On the left side a menu bar will show up.

    In this menu bar go to the 2nd button from the BOTTOM named “options”, inside go to “transition” and here select or un-select the transition you want or don’t want.

    Inside there is a simple fading effect transition that you can choose.

    Any problem do not hesitate to send us an email at " info@pix-star.com ".

  5. Add Polish language to frame's software

    The idea behind a frame controlled remotely is great as far as addressees can easily control it as well. It is kind of a limitation for many countries and older generations.

  6. Kudos for the USB keyboard interface, BTW!

    You should note in your documentation that you can plug in a USB keyboard, which makes the initial setup _MUCH_ easier. Entering my WiFi password, navigating through the menus with the arrow keys, really, really nice!

  8. Able to turn off the slide show to be able to manually scroll the web album in chronological order

    Or even add a feature to show in order. I have done an album for my daughter for when she was a baby to the present day. When viewing, it randomly presents photos regardless of order in the web album and there is not a setting to address this. I bought this frame for that sole purpose to give as a present. Thank you!!

  9. multiple folder playlist created remotely from web

    Add ability from web to play a slideshow that consist of selected folders, not just one folder. You can do this from frame but my mom cannot do this herself. It would be great to be able to do remotely.

  10. Optional up-scaling of small images

    I show Instagram images on the frame that are mostly 800x800 at the moment. This are slightly less than the device resolution, so I got a black frame around images.

    This is also essential for gif animations, as they are usually quite small and take about 20-30% of the screen space.

    Is there any chance you can add an upscale option, so more screen space is used?

    Hello,

    we wil implement a mode

    Fit to screen (keep ratio)

    which will apply only if the picture is not really small, meaning that the condition will be something like maximum different with the screen less than 30%, otherwise more than that it will be really look too pixelated till not acceptable.

  11. Loop GIF animations 2

    If I set a slideshow to switch images every 5 minutes and one of the images is a gif animation, it plays just once and then switched to the next image. This ruins the user experience as there is no chance for the family members to re-watch the animation, or show it to someone else.

    The idea is to loop the animation for the same time you show static images. If I have a 20-seconds gif animation and 5-minutes slideshow period, you need to show the animation 15 times instead of just once.

    As this changes the current behavior, maybe…

    Hello,

    it is not easy to do this on video as it works differently.

    also some users don’t want to look their videos. Adding an options to this makes the frame too complicated, it is already too complicated for some users and they complain.

    Regards,

    Arnaud

  12. SMS

    SMS. Picture-share concept of PXT515WR04 is brilliant. Rudimentary SMS via wireless keyboard would be nifty!

    Uber-simple GUI, possibly via split-screen. Source of given photo is known, elderly viewer wants to respond to photo, uses wireless keyboard with XL keys, sends messages, initiates bi-directional exchange of msgs. (Possibly independent of photo source.) Currently, infirm elders interact with outside world only on other's people's visitation whims. Easy-to-use SMS would reconnect the infirm to the outside world. Possible to integrate this concept to your already-smokin' PXT515WR04?

    First and foremost = simplicity of use.
    Secondarily = connectivity to the outside world.
    Tertiarily = over-sized…
