- The amount of space an image file varies according to size and quality.
- Photos taken at lower megapixel resolutions will take up less room.
Based on estimates from Which?, on a frame with 512mb memory you should be able to store about the following number of JPEGs:
- 2 megapixel - 570
- 3 megapixel - 425
- 4 megapixel - 255
- 5 megapixel - 205
- 6 megapixel - 160
- 7 megapixel - 130
- 8 megapixel - 115
Frames will be able to store significantly more images saved at resolutions lower than 2 megapixels.
- Many digital photo frames have a screen resolution lower than 1 megapixel; they will not be able to display the extra detail in larger files.
- You can change the resolution of your image files using a photo editing package such as Photoshop Elements.
Adding more memory:
- Photo frames often allow you to connect memory cards and USB sticks. These can be used as additional memory.
- Wireless frames can connect to your home network and access images directly from your hard drive or internet sites such as Flickr®.
Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific details.
