12-Inch Digital Photo Frame
Digital photo frames offer an experience that the traditional frame simply cannot match. In this modern digital era, where everyone returns from vacation with hundreds if not thousands of photos, settling for a single image to frame is quite hard. The digital picture frame creates slideshows and collages of memorable experiences and you can swap them with ease whenever you want a change of scenery.Photo Aspect Ratio and Direction
When choosing a 12-inch digital photo frame, one of the most important things to look for is the aspect ratio. If you are using a regular digital camera, chances are that your photos are in the standard 4:3 picture format, so choose a frame that has the same ratio as well. A 16:9 ratio digital picture frame might be more suited if you use a high-end DSLR camera. Still there are no absolutes, so be sure to check the aspect ratio in the camera settings. This is also important for mobile phone cameras, as they can be adjusted to take pictures in both 4:3 and 16:9. Even if you get an electronic photo frame with the wrong aspect ratio, you will still be able display your photos. Some frames even have an auto-crop feature to avoid leaving dead spaces on the sides. However, cropping manually or automatically can remove some important detail from your photos, so it's always best to find a frame with a matching aspect ratio.Image Orientation
There are 12-inch digital photo frames that display photos in portrait, landscape or both. Consider the use and the placement of the frame in your home and choose accordingly. If the frame is going to be positioned on a fixed location, you can choose a single orientation frame and not worry about options which you won't use. However, if you plan to move the frame around the house, dual orientation is a must, especially when it comes to larger frames.Image Source
LCD SD digital photo frames are a common option when it comes to image source. Just stick in an SD card and they will display images from it using various fade and dissolve effects at different speeds. More sophisticated frames can also connect to the Internet through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or a cable and display photos from online albums.
