  1. 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.

  2. Disable sensor motion on schedule.

    My frame it´s on my living room, and to go to the kitchen I pass in front of it, so in the middle of the night if I go to the kitchen to drink some water the frame turns on.

    I would like that the Motion Sensor turn on to had an optional "Do Not turn on the frame between X:XX and X:XX"

    In that way I could setup to not turn on say between 23:00 and 06:00, and could pass in front of it on that time frame and it would not turn on.

  3. Support High Efficiency Image Format (.HEIC files)

    Apple switched to .HEIC files a couple years ago and Android is adopting them as well, but these files don't appear on my Pix-Star PXT510WR04 FotoConnect XD 10.4 inch. Please update the firmware of existing frames to support Support High Efficiency Image Format. I know my phone can be configured to use JPEG files, but configuring my phone to overcome a limitation of a PIx-Star frame isn't the way to promote Pix-Star in 2019 and beyond.

    In the meantime, please add a Knowledge Base article describing High Efficiency Image Format, the plan for Pix-Star support, and which frames will support…

  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. Ability to add/change caption

    Please upgrade your website to allow users to add or change captions on photos in frame. Would be a great improvement and I would then recommend this frame to everyone

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. OwnCloud

    Hi,
    Please allow the frame to connect to an OwnCloud instance. I have lots of photos in OwnCloud and would love to be able to share these with family members who have the PixStar frame. I don't want to upload these photos to a public cloud provider to be able to share them.
    Thanks

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Create online view only login so others can view photos without having admin rights

    Background: As family members contribute photos to a frame for our Mother/Grandmother, they would like to view the pictures that others have contributed as we are spread across the country. It appears there is only a single login to the frame which provides admin rights. We do not want to have everyone use that for obvious reasons. Is there a way to offer a guest "view only" mode to the frame? Our mother/grandmother truly enjoys seeing current pictures on a regular basis without needing to be tech savvy! Thanks for the consideration.

  19. Allow reminders to be created online.

    Currently there is no functionality for reminders or alarms online. Creating them on the frame is cumbersome due to the interface.

  20. Sort external web albums alphabetically

    When importing external pictures the albums are not shown in order, which makes finding specific albums difficult. Please present a sorted list. Specifically, I use SmugMug so I don't know if this problem exists with other sources.
