Digital picture frames store and display many photographs, usually shuffling through the photos in random order. The photographs are stored in the frame using the frame's internal memory or a memory card.
Things You'll Need
- Digital picture frame
- Digital memory card (optional)
- USB card drive (optional)
Select the digital photos you want to transfer to the digital picture frame. To make the transfer quicker and easier, create a folder on your desktop and store copies of the photos in this folder.
Connect the frame to the computer using the supplied USB cable if the digital frame has an internal memory. Open the folder in which you stored all of the photos you want to load on the frame. Upload the photos onto the frame's internal memory by opening Windows Explorer and clicking on the "Folders" button at the top of the screen. Navigate to the "Desktop" folder, and open the temporary folder of the photos. Highlight all of the photo files. Right click and select "Copy". Navigate to the folder for the photo frame, right-click and select "Paste".
Once the transfer is complete, disconnect the USB cable to separate the frame from the computer.
If the frame uses a memory card, use a memory card reader to facilitate the transfer. Connect the card reader to the computer and insert the memory card into the slot in the memory card reader. Upload the photos from the temporary folder on your desktop onto the memory card by opening Windows Explorer and clicking on the "Folders" button at the top of the screen. Go to the "Desktop" folder and open the temporary folder of photos. Highlight all of the photo files, right-click and select "Copy". Open the memory card's folder, right-click and select "Paste".
Remove the memory card from the card reader and insert it into the digital frame.
