Maintaining Family Ties Using Digital Picture Frames
As human beings, we love to share pictures; old and new, with family members and friends. And in this day of personal computers and the internet it is so easy to instantly send photos via email or by posting to a personal web page that so many of us do it on a regular basis. But what do you do about those technology challenged relatives; the ones who want nothing to do with a computer, let alone the internet? Enter the digital picture frames, the perfect gadgets for sharing photos with the computer-less and for even drawing them into the world of computers.
Essentially an LCD monitor surrounded by a traditional-looking wood frame, digital picture frames can display just one photo or multiple photos in a slideshow format. Little children love seeing their faces in these desktop frames. A great way for moms to show off their kids at work or to friends, for grandparents to run those dear memories of their grand children and for aunts, uncles to show off their nieces and nephews! These frames help computer dads stay close to their family while at work. Moreover, one can run as many of these frames on their desktop as they have room. An instant way to recall that aunty or uncle from the extended family that one's mind never really seems to be able to capture and store!
Fresh, lovely photos that we want to keep and show to all can now find their way right into the homes and hearts of loved ones without need to store them in an album and devising ways to ensure that none is pulled out by relatives who get too attached to the picture. There will be no more need to find ways to store negatives protectively and of struggling to tell which bears whose or which image. Digital picture frames offer the perfect solution to photo storage, selection and distribution for the close knit family. Moreover, there's no limit to the number of family members one can share precious images with because the cost is a little fraction of what it would have been in the days of photo printing. Loved ones can then choose which ones they would like to print for special framing.
Finally, putting together and cataloguing family albums has never been easier. All it would take is pulling out photos from stored digital picture frames and bunching them together to one's preference. Creating memoirs for funerals, fun pictures to attach to family get together invitations and precious memories just to keep can be done at a fraction of the time and cost.
