  2. Yes - please make a larger size and I will buy it

    It would be great to have a larger size frame. I love the current one and would want to buy another one - but larger.

  4. Remove pictures from Web Albums

    Not all pictures from a web album I'd like to share on my Pix Star. For example if I share my Timeline photos from Facebook, I'd like to hide certain ones. Can that be a feature in the future?

  5. 100% remote web interface control

    I bought the 15" frame (2019) for my father. This was a very nice upgrade to the Pixstar frame from several years ago.

    The frame is in the Midwest, while I am on the west coast.

    My father loves the frame....however he is challenged at times to understand the frame's interface (92years old).

    Anyway to get 100% frame control? I can't manually adjust time remotely. I can't control all the sorting options remotely. Having 100% remote access would only enhance Pixstar's brand. Many of my relatives have adopted the Pixstar brand after seeing the frame in action. These relatives fall…

  6. Display image metadata (date taken, etc) (please)

    I love your frame, but it has one glaring missing feature! There appears to be no way to display the "date time original" EXIF metadata. Instead we have relatively useless display fields like "folder" or "file name".

    EXIF data is present in all recent digital images, and can be selectively added to older images using any common photo editor.

    I use my Pix-Star frame to show around a thousand photos from family archives, and people are always asking "WHEN was that taken" - the data is there, inside the image, and it sure would be nice to be able to…

  7. Use email subject as picture name

    I wonder if it may be possible for the Frame to use the email subject as the picture title. This would make it so much easier to name pictures so that the recipient can identify what they're looking at!

  8. Auto sync network time with a manual time zone

    I went from Central Daylight Time (CDT) to Central Standard Time (CST) last Sunday night (2017/11/05 at 2 AM).

    The pixstar is set to auto sync with the network time.

    The pixstar still says its 1 hour fast. I.E. Right now its:

    $ date
    Wed Nov 8 08:03:43 CST 2017

    But the pixstar says its: 09:03:43 !!!! I.E. it is set to the Eastern Standard Time (EST).

    You should have a manual time zone.

  9. Select multiple Albums

    I would like a "Switch Slide Show" option to select more than one album (but not all albums).
    Basically check off which albums to play.

  10. Manage multiple Pix-Star frames from one account & unique group email address

    I have several Pix-Star frames and i want to send pictures to a common email address so that they all receive the picture and manage them from a single account.

  12. Multi Frame Account - Select Pictures per Frame Control

    With Multi Frame Account, I want to control which frames get certain pictures. My husband's parents are divorced and they HATE each other. I will be controlling the Multi Frame Account and I want to control which Frame gets which pictures cause they don't need to be seeing how the other half of the family is with my child. Also, I want to put more pictures of my family on their frames and more pictures of the husband's side on their frames.

  13. Reminders online

    I need to be able to create the reminders online. The remote control is too cumbersome without an actual keyboard and only up and down arrows. Additionally I need to be able to do it remotely.
    Also, I need these reminders to stay up the whole day or at least for an extended amount of time. They can appear at the bottom of the pictures.
    Birthday reminders should have a setting to repeat annually and stay up all day (like the weather).

  14. Allow Sorting on Website

    In the display on the website allow sorting by file name, file date, etc so it is easier to find and delete duplicate photos.

  15. IFTTT Integration

    I'd love for you to be able to kick off the playing of an album / photomails through IFTTT. This would allow for a huge jump in the number of things you can do with the photo frame.

  16. Connecting the frame to a NAS within the local network via SMB

    Dears,
    it would be nice to connect the Frame via the smb-protokoll to a NAS / Windows-Share and Play all found Pictures stored in all/different Folders.
    If the NAS/share is updated with new files, the Frame will Play them in the future (cycling or random) without updating the Frame itselve.

  17. Sort pictures on website in reverse order

    When viewing an album on the website, the photos are sorted by the upload date. It would be much more useful to sort in the reverse order so the most recent are at the top. I often use this web view to see what the most recent photos I uploaded are, and right now I have to scroll to the bottom which takes forever as the photos load 20 at a time.

  18. Add captions to photo from within the app

    I have over 300 photos in a folder that I would love tongonthrough each photo and add captions from within the app. The purpose is to allow others seeing the playback to read why a given picture is important to me. Today, this is only done via mailing a photo and adding a caption in the subject line.

  19. SAMBA server - drop the insecure SMB v1, upgrade to v2+

    The original SMB protocol (v1) has been deprecated for years, known to be very insecure (remember WannaCry?).
    Current systems don't even support connecting to that by default. In Windows 10 - since v1709 - you'd have to manually activate the old "SMB 1.0/CIFS client" feature to access this picture frame. And that is a BAD idea to have it enabled on a regular basis (makes you vulnerable to all kinds of attacks when connecting to any OTHER samba servers).

    My question is: do you even plan updating this (in firmware)? And when?
