    Hello,
    In collage mode if you don’t want pictures to be cropped it’s possible just go to change settings menu then to slide show sub menu and here in the " display mode" choose the " collage x5 without crop " then your pictures will display as they are, no crop.

  2. friendlier radio selection in slideshow

    Provide recent radio selector within slideshow. It is not my experience that it auto-returns from radio selection to slides and it's terribly modal as is. Radio selection should be more intuitive at any rate, with recent stations at the top of the options.

  3. Awesome Frame!!!!

    Hi - I just wanted to let you know that I purchased a PixStar Frame for my husband's birthday - we got it yesterday, opened it up and had it working in minutes! We LOVE it! He wanted a digital frame and his requirement was that we could e-mail or somehow easily get the pictures from our iPhones to the frame. I search on Amazon and came up with this frame! So happy I found it - we just love it and it's been less that 24 hours!
    Thanks! Susan & Patrick Bivona

  5. Play videos from and SD card

    I was just about to purchase the 10" frame when I noticed it doesn't play videos from an SD card or USB stick. This is one of the main reasons for me buying a digital Photo frame. Will you be adding this facility as it seems odd that such a high quality frame doesn't offer this option?

  6. Is it possible to copy the photos from the frame to a USB?

    I cannot see a way to copy photos from the frame's memory to a USB. Is this possible?

    Hello,

    yes, of course.

    - go to the FILE MANAGER inside the frame.

    - select the pictures to copy.

    - press MENU and in the menu that shows up go down to

    copy selected to…

    - in the next window check the USB as destination the one that you’ve inserted and confirm.

  7. landscape vs portrait

    when you change from landscape to portrait, change the menu orientation, too. Currently the menus stay in landscape

  8. Great support!

    I emailed for help and got the answer back in minutes. Then responded with another question and got that answer in minutes. Wow! I work at a web company and that's impressive! Thanks.

  9. 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.

  10. The ability to drag and drop entire folder

    The ability to drag and drop entire folder (rather than needing to create folder within Pixstar and then drag individual files into it)

  11. 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

  13. 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 ".

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  18. 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!!

  19. 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.
