Summary: I tried to load photos that were formatted to baseline using Gimp and Irfanview, to no avail. No photos will show up on this digital frame. I'm already well past the time frame for return because I thought it was my issue for not being able to load the pictures properly.
Another high quality digital photo frame from ViewSonic ~ Bargain too!

Summary: I've purchased digital photo frames from various different companies, but find that for the money ViewSonic offers the best value. While some reviewers have reported they've had problems with frames from this company, I can say that I've had no issues whatsoever.
Great price, good display, poor documentation 4 stars

Summary: Great price, good display, poor documentation 4 stars - included printed booklet is of no help to novices - you can figure it out or ask help from knowledgable techy person (like me, I suppose) - gift recipient could not set it up with info provided.
Summary: This frame is very nice, the pictures are extremely clear. The only drawback is that it cannot be battery-operated which would mean that I could move it from place to place. However, it doesn't make it any less excellent.
Summary: You'll be hard pressed to find an 800x480 photo frame for this kind of price, got it for $23. Very nice crisp screen. And don't let the name fool you, just because it has "portrait" in it doesn't mean you can't use it in landscape.
Great photo frame for the $$ - Here's how to fix image errors
4 March 2013
Summary: This is a great photo frame for the money. I paid less than 20 dollars for it on Amazon. I was getting the red circle with the dash for many of my uploaded pictures. After a couple hours I found that each image needs to fit the following criteria: 1. Around 1.5MB in size (might be smaller).
Summary: We wanted this to work. Now I've got to find another (we won't try this one again) low-cost replacement for my wife's Valentine's Day present. Embarrassing.
Pros: Resolution and brightness were acceptable for the $20 we paid. We were looking forward to having the frame on my wife's desk at work.
Cons: The frame only lasted for 18 hours before completely dying. I replaced its battery, plugged it into several outlets (which should automatically turn on the frame), and held down each of the buttons (including the home which is the one that should start the frame when it is switched off). Basicall...
Summary: I'd been wanting a digital photo frame and the price was right. This is very simple to operate; you just insert an SD card with the photos and it starts itself. The colors of the pictures show well.
Summary: This is the perfect gift we have purchased two to send as gifts to the Grandparents . It was very easy to load with our pictures And it also displays a clock and calender. For the price you can't beat it.
