  2. Drag and drop capability for adding photos to Web Albums.

    Sometimes it is much easier to drag photos to a photo upload box rather than browse to the files and select them. For example, we use iPhoto which has a complicated file structure which makes it hard to find individual photos. To get photos into a Pix Star web album, you need to export the photos first and then select them (creating unnecessary duplicates). It would be great if you could simply select the photos from within iPhoto (or other photo application) and then drag them to a Photo Upload box within the Pix-Star site. Most browsers, except for some…

  4. Option to play last 5, 10, 20, 60, all pictures for Grandparents who cannot manage the frame themselves

    Great Grandparents/Uncles/Aunts cannot manage their local device. Either create an option for remote login management (delete or do not display) of the my inbox photos received via email or limit the pictures displayed to the last 5, 10,20....you get the idea.

    There is already inside the frame a feature to play only latest received pictures based on the date, for example the last 3 days, last 7 days, last 30 days.

    This feature does the same thing as you describe here and should answer your need.

  5. Remove Pause Button Icon From Screen When a Photo is Paused

    Often we enjoy leaving a specific photo paused on the screen when we see it cycle through a slide show. Sometimes we leave it up for hours, at times days would be nice, so it looks like a “regular” picture frame. But the pause button icon is also very obviously displayed on the picture about the size of a nickel and greatly detracts from the photo. Can you eliminate that distraction or make it toggle off?

  6. Allow multiple folders to play, but not all

    I would like the ability to select multiple (but not all) folders to be played. It looks like it's either one or all. How about some in-between? I have to work around this by creating a new folder and copying the ones I want to play to it, then select this new folder to be played.

    Hello,

    While it is true you cannot do this selection from the web site, you can do it inside the frame going to “my web albums pictures” menu inside the frame then enter inside the supplier name and then inside you can select the albums to play.

  7. Publish a suggested list of RSS Photo Feeds

    I'm running out of pictures to display on my frame, which sits on my desk at work (so it's looked at all day, every day). I have the time set to 1 minute to space them out. Can you publish a list of suggested RSS photo feed URL's so we can easily add some stock images to the frame? I've had a hard time finding these on my own.

  11. radio on/off within slideshow

    The new software with recents radio change from Remote:Menu in slideshow is GOOD. Thanks! Please sequence the play/pause on the remote to include radio on/off:

    mute/pause/unmute/play

    Can you make the volume available in slideshow?

    Save the radio station selection with the slideshow. Optionally, play the saved selection or override with timed station selections.

  13. 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.

  15. Ability to move video files into web albums

    All submitted videos currently have to remain in the INBOX. Would really like to sort those into web albums just like the photos.

  16. combine pictures to one album

    By combining pictures to one album you can delete albums with only one to a few pictures. Why would you want to an album only showing one to a few pictures?

  17. Display any of the following: Capture date/time, Upload date/time, Location, Web folder name, filename.

    Display any of the following: Capture date/time, Upload date/time, Location, Web folder name, filename. Possibly also description which can be "comment" from a file name, or subject from an e-mail.

    User selects with a tick mark and then that field is displayed.

    There is an option to only show date or show date/time (or neither).

  18. Web Folder force sequence upload option.

    Currently the two bulk upload options strive for performance and will operate on multiple images (apparent multi thread). This logic defeats the user's sequence. Prevents displaying in user predicated sequence (like action shots).

    Would be nice to still have a bulk upload but have the UI load & display in original camera shot order.

  19. better transitions between photos: fade to black for example

    I find the fade transition to be a bit jerky. Looks like a processor issue, but if not.. maybe it could be improved. Also, it would be nice to have a fade to black transition. I think this is also called dip to black.

  20. I would like to be able to show the complete name of the picture, without the "Picture taken: xx/xx/xx".

    I would like to be able to show the complete name of the picture, without the "Picture taken: xx/xx/xx". Or increase the display field (from 47) to fill the entire box....or allow 2 lines for display.
