I haven’t tried every photo frame out there, but the few that I have tried (CEIVA, Pacific Digital, PanDigital) miss something simple: I don’t ever want my frame to display anything without filling the frame.
Simple example: If I place my frame horizontally (ie landscape orientation), I don’t want it to display any portrait photographs — or at least not without cropping the photograph to landscape proportions first. No one would ever place a real photo frame horizontally and display a vertical photograph in it. Never.
If a digital photo frame is displayed horizontally, it should either exclude portrait photographs or provide some simple controls for a user to crop/zoom portrait photos to the appropriate proportions.
I wonder when a tech company will come along and do a digital photo frame the right way?
