FotoFrame – get more photos onto your digital photo frame
In a simple phrase, it’s a bulk digital photo resizing tool designed to help you get more photos onto a digital photo frame.
]Digital photo frames are pretty popular at the moment. And they’re pretty easy to use – you just copy your digital photos either to the internal storage or to a flash card. You don’t need to do anything to those pics because the photo frame will resize them automatically.
But there’s a problem with that.
A typical 10MP digital photo takes up about 5MB of space. That means 2GB of storage will give you around 400 photos. But the photo frame can’t show all 10MP of each photo – it has to resize them on the fly down to the native resolution of the frame panel, which can be as little as 320×234-pixels.
So basically, the frame has to throw away as much as 95% of the pixels in each photo to show them properly. If it’s throwing away that many pixels, why store them in the first place?
FotoFrame is designed to do the resizing first, shrinking your photos down to a much smaller size, small enough to enable you to fit as many as 15,000 photos on a 2GB storage capacity.
