How to Get Photos from Your Phone to Your Digital Frame
Almost any digital picture frame you purchase today supports USB drives. There are two big challenges to being able to display your photos on your digital frame. The first is how do you get them from your phone or computer to a USB drive. Some frames connect to WiFi or even email. Many people are not technically savvy enough to be able to set up these types of frames, no matter how detailed the instructions are. Another challenge is cropping the photos so they display properly on your 16:9 aspect ratio frame. Have you ever seen a portrait photo displayed on a landscape frame screen? There is a lot of black space on both sides of the photo and often, the people in the photo are very small. Also, many photos are rotated improperly. They may display on the frame as a landscape photo, when the photo was originally taken as a portrait photo or they can even be upside down.
If you do not know how to copy your photos from your phone to a USB drive and to edit them so they display properly on a digital frame, you can take the time to learn how to do this and to purchase the software necessary to edit photos properly or, you can use a revolutionary product called Phone2Frame featuring the Photo Backup Stick Universal. Phone2Frame is a digital picture frame that includes the USB storage drive but does not require Wi-Fi setup, email setup, or any accounts. The USB drive included with the digital frame is called the Photo Backup Stick Universal and makes it easy for you too copy your photos from your phone or computer to the USB drive. This USB device contains specialized apps to scan your phone or computer for all your photos, copy them to the USB drive, and allow you to edit them so they display properly on your TV. If you already have a digital frame but need to get your photos to your frame, the Photo Backup Stick Universal is sold separately and works with any digital frame that supports USB drives.
Phone2Frame with the Photo Backup Stick Universal works on iPhones, iPads, Android phones & tablets, and Windows & Mac computers. To back up from phones and tablets, install the Photo Backup Stick Universal app and plug the USB device into your phone or tablet. Run the app and tap the button to back up your photos. That’s it. Your photos will back up to the USB drive. Once backed up, you can edit them to fit your frame screen properly. To back up from computers, plug the device into your computer, run the backup app, and click the button to back up your photos. Again, you can then edit the photos to fit your frame screen properly.
The Phone2Frame photo editor in the Photo Backup Stick apps delete unwanted photos, rotate photos that are displaying improperly, and allows you to crop photos so they take up as much of the screen as possible. Imagine going from a portrait photo on your wide digital frame screen that is mostly black on both sides of the photo to a close up of the people in the photo that takes up the entire screen. The Phone2Frame photo editor places your photos on a virtual frame so you can visualize exactly how the photo will appear on your digital frame.
Once you have your photos on the USB drive and they are edited, simply plug them into your frame’s USB slot. There has never been an easier way to get your photos from your phone to your TV to create your own personal digital photo album.
