  1. Slideshow: only Inbox (without local storage or web-folders)

    Hello! Thanks for the great product. I buy it for my grandma in Germany and she love it.
    Is it possible to show only the pictures of the "inbox"?
    the more recent pictures are stored there
    - we didn't want to show ALL web-folders and ALL the local storage - only the recent pictures

    sorry for my bad english

    best regards
    jm

  3. 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

  4. The ability to edit alarms/reminders online

    It would be most helpful to be able to edit existing alarms and reminders online. I would love to be able to change the time on a reminder rather than having to create a new alarm/reminder with the new time and then having to delete the old reminder.

  5. Show picture that is coming from the inbox.

    When I open the inbox and say yes to a new picture, this picture should be desplayed as the next picture.

    Hello,

    When you open the inbox manually to confirm the picture you already see it on the screen so you can visualize it as long as you want.

    it’s already more or less what you ask for.

    Once accepted we can only put it in the slide show and display it at the next rotation depending on the type of slide show normal or random it will have a different position.

    We cannot display it again just after you accept all the pictures of the inbox.

    The Pix-Star Team.

  6. Great product-Thanks! Set up a challenge using th buttons on the back. How about a touch screen interface?

    Set up was difficult using the buttons on the back. Once frame was registered much easier. My suggestion is to include a touch screen interface--I keep hitting keys to input by Wi-Fi network--using buttons on back and then clicking Ok was time consuming. Thanks

  7. set slide show remotely

    Can we please have complete access to settings through the account instead of only some? I have needed to make adjustments on a frame I manage for family and it can only be done with the remote. This product is marketed to be managed from a distance (through the account) but the slide show, choice for captions, and other issues require the remote. Please enhance account management options!

  8. Better Instagram Support

    Modern Instagram images are up to 1080x1080 pixels and may be not square. So far I got 800x800 on my frame with white borders on rectangular images to make them square.

    It would be really nice if you can export Instagram images in full resolution and without adding borders.

  9. Share account photos across multiple accounts

    Is there any way to use the configuration from my first frame to be used for multiple frames when linked together? It looks like just emailed photos and new shared albums are linked but I can't link an existing album.

  10. Remote Firmware Update

    It would be great if an "Update Firmware" button could be added to the Pix-Star portal. We bought two frames, the closest of which is 2 hours away. Neither of the recipients are particularly tech savy.

  11. Automatically accept photos and display them without the menu/timer

    Automatically accept photos and display them without the menu/timer, maybe display a star or email icon to indicate they are new.

    When I have automatic enabled, I hear the ding of a new photo, but who knows when it will display. Automatic and show throws up the menu and blocks half of the new picture.

  13. 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.

  14. Automatically move pictures from internal memory to sd card

    Since the SD card is not used to expand the internal memory nor is it accessible through samba (for technical reasons). Could it not be possible to have the option to have internal memory pictures automatically moved to the SD card?

  15. resize on upload

    Resize pictures on upload or emailed to the web site before storage. The size should be configured to be the native resolution of the frame retaining aspect ratio.

  16. 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.

  17. Automatic Firmware Update

    I once had a problem with the frame which was fixed in one of the updates, but I was not aware about that, as the frame simply shows images all the time and I have no need to look at the menu, so I didn't see the notification.

    It would be really nice if the device could automatically install firmware updates by itself while asleep or early at the morning. You can make this optional, though.

    Thanks :)

  18. Improve bezel quality

    This frame is premium price due to its high level of functionality. However, the quality of the bezel is not great and doesn't give a quality feel. I would much happier with the product (even if it cost an additional £50) if the device had a better quality frame (high gloss black for example) and had a bit more substance to its weight.

  20. On/off (sleep) button on remote should disable motion sensor

    It honestly doesn't make sense to have the sensor running and waking the frame if I manually choose to put it to sleep.
