Random picture display on electronic picture frame

Question: Random picture display on electronic picture frame

We have an electronic picture frame which seems to always display pictures in the same order - there is no "random" picture display option.I would like to randomly organise the photos on the computer and then copy them across to the memory card. I can organise them alphabetically, by date, by size etc. but can anyone suggest an easy way to randomly organise them?Thanks in advanceDave

I've had a look at the Toshiba webpage on Google.(Just type Toshiba and then search) and on the left side of the page is Customer Support. It may not be on the front page as I clicked on "Displays etc......". See what you can get from there.

I finally went ahead and chopped up an old laptop to create a "moving" picture frame. I have hacked the registry to use the slickr screen saver as the default (when either no user is logged in or when a user is logged in via RDP.)

The problem is that I have certain pictures located on another PC that I want, and if I am logged on locally to this PC, it works fine, but if I am not logged in, the slickr screen saver defaults to showing "everyone's" pictures from the internet.

Does anyone know how to change this? I've already e-mailed the author, but haven't received a response yet. I am hoping someone here knows about slickr enough to help out!

thanks in advance!

Hello,

I've got a Technika TPFA70 7" photo frame which is doing nothing and I wondered if I could connect it up as a monitor - this would be ideal for my "music pc" in the back room

It only has a usb port (same size as standard pc usb port) and power port, that's it - (I'm running winXP)

If I buy a usb to usb cable and connect it to my pc would work as a very small monitor?

If not, is there a way of doing it with adapters etc?

Help much needed, thanks in advance

Andy
 

Answer:Can I use a picture frame as a monitor?

You would need a VGA to USB adapter. Also you would need something like DisplayLink software. http://www.networkworld.com/columnists/2007/081407-cool-tools.html

I think this is embedded within the Windows coding. I can't find a way for the user to delete the frame. You could, of course, create a "picture" using a plain color to match the screen background color but you would still have the frame. Is it that annoying to you really? It's not as if you view it for that long or that often

The story... I'm on my second digital picture frame brand. I've been having weird issues since connecting to the first frames and worse after trying the second frame... then I hear about the viruses....

Issues:

- Now, everytime I reboot it wants to run checkdisk... if I let it run, it just runs again and again.
- PnP manager seems messed up. When I did connect the frame, it showed up in "My Computer" once, now it just cycles through showing up and never connects.
- I cannot safely remove my thumb drive. Always says there is a program accessing it when there isn't
- Never successfully attached either frame to my computer... First was a Smartparts and the second an HP.
- Ran Adaware and couldn't delete the cookies it found
- Uninstalled USB devices from Device manager and reinstalled... didn't seem to do anything.

Does ANYONE know where I can purchase one of these?

It's a nice little unit; you slip in a flash card and that's it. It runs off batteries.

I search the net. Ebay has not had one for a month.
I write Digiframe.com and get told they have not made it for quite some time--all they make is the 17" one.
I go to www.prosoyo.com/cu who apparently also make it (they're in Hong Kong) and learn I would need to buy 10 or 20.
Many, many sites list it, but when I look for details, they are minimal but minimal and there is no price or ordering information. Some sites have a Buy Now link that gives no buyng info or opportunity or directs you to some other site that turns out not to have any information or stock either..

I strongly suspect low demand has stopped the unit's manufacture, but I want one really badly. Hence this letter.

So please write if you have even a hint of a lead (new or used)...a possibility even. Is there some useer group where I could post my request?

Thanks.

I was just given a new wireless picture frame a Kodak EX1011. I immediately went out and purchased a router to facilitate the new hardware. I have been working on this now for two weeks and cannot get the darn thing to work. The router is working fine. The picture frame seems to be working. It can recognize the network I created. That is as far as I can get. I installed the Kodak Easyshare software but to no avail my computer does not show up in the kodak frame and the frame does not show up in the computer. Can anyone help me out? I am using a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router. WRT54GS It is working fine in conjunction with my Sympatico DSL high speed connection. I have Windows xp as an o/s. The transfer is supposed to be through Windows Media. I go in and try to set up media sharing but it does not seem to see my picture frame. I checked with Kodak and this router is supposed to be compatible with the wireless frame. I went into my Windows firewall and added the TCP HTTP protocol 10243 as advised by Kodak. I downloaded the firmware upgrade for the frame on the Kodak site and installed it ...still the same result... the frame finds the network but cannot find the network computer and visa versa I guess. Can anyone help me before I do something drastic...or return the digital picture frame. I can make it work with an sd card or by usb but we paid for wireless and that is what I want.

Answer:EX1011 Wireless Picture Frame

Wib,

I consider the Kodak EX1011 to be a lousy frame (wasteful 16:9 format for 4:3 photos, customer service who have zero knowledge of the product, and no RANDOM play feature!!!!) but the feature you are trying to implement did go easy for me.

1. The Easyshare software is unnecessary.
2. Upgrade to Windows Media Play 11 if you haven't done so already.
3. Go into the WMP library and share the media folders you want to share.
4. The Windows Firewall will open all of the ports you need. There are more than what Kodak mentioned. Just Google 'upnp ports' if you are using a different software firewall.

That was it. You should see your computer.

I grabbed an old dell laptop (circa 2001), which is in great condition. I put it in a box, flipped the monitor around and installed slickr. All go. Then I moved it to my apartment and went to enable WPA and discovered that it was a non-service pack edition of XP. I went to update it and discovered it was a non-legit copy of XP, so it's not updateable.

I would like to get rid of that and do this in a legit fasion. Does anyone have any ideas for a linux distro that would be good for this project? Something that would be easy to install, easy to manage remotely, and would allow for something like slickr - a screen saver that pulls from one of my flickr photo albums.

The CD Drive is pretty unaccessable at this point, so ideally it would be something that I can install via usb drive. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Answer:Kodak digital picture frame

Are you trying to load images using the USB cable or with a media card?

If USB, does a new device get recognized and pop up with a new drive letter or identifying description in the devices with removable storage or other area on the My Computer window? That's where you copy to.

If you're using a media card, same thing, copy it to whatever drive letter or other device listed in the My Computer window that is associated with that media card and then transfer that media card to the picture frame.

I have a 10.4" Digital picture frame by Smartparts. I am trying to view avi. motion clips on the frame but can not find a way to convert them. The manual says that the digital picture frame can play video clips that are in the AVI Motion JPEG format.up to 640x480 resolution and up to 30 frames per second.The video clips that I want to use are in the motion avi format. I use a logitech 510 clicksmart webcam to record the video clips.Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks.
 

Answer:Smartparts digital picture frame 10.4 help

Try this: http://www.divx.com/divx/windows/converter
I have a SmartParts SP104C (10.4" screen) and it will play Divx/Xvid .avi files with a 640x480 or 320x240 screen resolution. You should be able to use the Divx Converter to convert your movies into Divx format.
Note: The picture frame only recognizes movie files with the .avi extension, so be sure to rename your files with that extension, or they will not show up on the picture frame.

If the video plays on your picture frame, but you get no sound, then you're having the same problem I did. Which is, the SP104C picture frame only supports WMA audio, and the typical Divx movie uses MP3 audio.
If you re-encode the movie's audio into WMA format, you will then get sound with your movie when playing it back on the picture frame.

If the Divx Converter allows you to choose WMA audio when you're converting your movie, use that. Otherwise, you will need to use a program called VirtualDub.
main site: http://www.virtualdub.org/
download: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/virtualdub/VirtualDub-1.7.8.zip?download
The instructions for using this program are kind of complicated, so if you get this far and need more help using VirtualDub, post another message and I will post more details.

My mom died in January and so I loaded a slew of photos of her onto my dad's HP digital picture frame from my computer. Then my computer (with all the original photos) was stolen. Since I had not been smart and backed up the photos of my mom, the only copy of these precious photos is now on the digital picture frame.

Is there any way to recover these photos from the digital picture frame? I have tried putting in a flash drive as well as connecting the frame to my new computer using a USB connection, but the frame does not show an option to transfer photos from it to anything else.....only the other direction. I can delete photos, but I can't move them back to my computer.

Can I take the frame apart, remove the internal memory card and somehow retrieve the photos from the drive?

It brings up a nice resolution pictures for about 5 seconds and then switches to a low pixel resolution of the same picture for about 15 seconds and then moves to the next picture and does the same thing. I saved the pictures at 900x600 pixels at 150 resolution. Any ideas why it keeps changing to a lower resolution. The frame is a 4x6 size so it is not very big to begin with.

Yes, its authui.dll. I was just looking at that file.

Find:

And do either of the two

<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" height="0" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

<UserTile resid="UserTileTemplate" margin="rect(0rp,10rp,0rp,10rp)" visible="false" layout="verticalflowlayout(0,2,2)" sheet="UsersStyle">

I would use the first since it actually shrinks it and doesnt take up space, the second method still uses up the space since its simply hidden.

And as always, back up your files before you attempt any mods to system files.

Good luck.

I recently bought a Qosmio F60 laptop and when initially setting up/ testing the webcam for use on Skype, I rather foolishly chose a graphics border for around the frame of the webcam picture with lots of yellow stars.

This ends up blocking a large part of the webcam picture when on Skype, which is very annoying, but I can't seem to figure out a way to get rid of it. I'm sure it's a very simple option somewhere in the webcam settings to turn it off, but any help would be appreciated before it drives me mad!

Answer:Smartparts Digital Picture Frame Stopped working suddenly

Kellie, do you have a different SD card you could plug in to see if the frame is working? Or is it possible you could be inserting the card upside down? Is the power adapter in place? Check the Operation Manual and the Quick Start Guide for something you may have overlooked.

If none of those ideas work, the manual\guide should provide you with a website URL for support. Or you might get some help from JustAnswer.Smartparts Support.

I'm running identical Vista Enterprise computers in a lab environment on a Windows Domain, and am having an issue with the user account picture. Namely, on the user logon screen, just above the fields for the username and password, there's a giant empty frame where the user account picture should be.

I've already replaced the user.bmp and guest.bmp, so that our company logo will show up for users in the start menu after they've logged in, and will show up in the logon window for their user name if they've locked their session, but I'm unable to get the picture to show up on the original logon screen before the user logs in.

Somegroup policies we have include:




Interactive logon: Do not display last user name
Enabled

Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL
Enabled




Always use classic logon
Enabled

So far I haven't found any good info thatrefers to this problem. I've only seen two posts on these forums that come close to the problem I'm having, but neither touch on it directlyand provide a solution. They are:

I have found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.


If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

PLZ SOMEONE...
HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM?

MY MICROSOFT WORD 2007 Spec:
Microsoft? Office Word 2007 (12.0.4518.1014) MSO (12.0.6514.5000)
Part of Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007

Answer:Microsoft Office Word 2007 picture paste Bug *same picture is repeated

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
Then use the Insert image option in word...
It's just a safer way to do an operation,
Cheers.

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

Answer:login profile picture revert back to previous picture

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

I'm doing some data recovery and have come across lots of duplicate pictures,also a lot of them are obviously broken. It started out as 250,000 pictures from practically the entire life of the hard drive,I've narrowed it down to 10,000 in 9GB of which there are still many broken pictures and duplicates making it almost impossible to browse on a normal hard drive so I can't give back to the user in this state,I'm currently browsing them on a fast SSD.

I'd like to remove all the duplicates by reading the actual picture information and not the files name which most do,I've tried a couple so far and none have found a single duplicate.

I've tried Duplifinder

As a keen flickr member I have a lot of photographs on my computer. These are all neatly allocated to different files, depending upon a variety of variables. So far....all is well.

Yesterday my neighbour kindly upgraded me to Windows 10. Everything seemed fine.

Today I tried to take 4 photographs off my camera and load them up to my computer. Initially I got a dialogue box asking me what I would like to do in future when I plugged in my camera - I said "upload the pix to my computer".

Previously they have always arrived on my desktop in a separate file. I would then edit them, afterwards splitting them up into different files, depending on what I want to do with them.

Anyway, this morning, after taken 4 photographs, I plugged in my camera. I then get a message saying "We found 880 photos. Would you like to import them into your picture folder". And the only alternatives given were IMPORT or CANCEL.

Aggggggggh! I do NOT want all my pix jumbled together in a picture folder. I want them all neatly organised into the folders I have set up.

Is there any way I can get rid of this 'Picture folder' and go back to using my existing folders (they are all still there, and all still containing the photographs they should rightfully contain.)

I would be hugely grateful for some help.

Answer:Picture file trying to over-ride my existing picture files

What happens if you click Import? Does it give you the option to move them into a specific folder or does it just appear in the Pictures folder? Usually, you can just double-click the camera in This PC so that you can see its contents and you can copy over photographs that you want into the locations that you want them in.

Hello,

Recently, I have noticed that when I turn on the display it takes about 40-50 seconds until it displays the picture, whereas it used to display the picture almost instantly when I turned on the display. Once the display is on, the monitor seems to function just fine.

I can't recall making any sort of changes that would effect this sort of issue, so I am wondering if anyone in here has had a similar experience, or can offer up any sort of advice on how to go about fixing this?

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,

Answer:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

Unfortunately, Dell doesn't allow you to use Pip for this function, so I thought of replicating the effect with software. I've tried a number of virtual desktop management programs from Download.com, but none seems to allow a virtual desktop WITHIN the desktop itself.

If anyone knows of software that can perform this function, I would be grateful.

We had one of these devices (a Sony) for Christmas and have managed to get it set up so that it will show photos which have been put on to the internal storage system. However, supplied with it was a card that fits in to one of the available slots.This is great, but how do I get photos on to the card? I do have a card reader which should be fitted internally in my computer, but I am loathe to jigger the case up when I try to install it. (It seems to be deeper than the slot but not as wide as the slot it is supposed to fit in!)The obvious thing to do is to buy a separate external card reader, which are quite cheap, but will I be able to transfer photos to the card through an external reader? Or does it just read a card that is already loaded, i.e. straight out of the camera?ThanksTonyV

The photo frame will read a card straight from a camera or one filled with pics from a PC.The PC will need a compatible card reader.

It will display the bootup screens no problem but once windows goes to display the desktop then I lose signal and the screen goes blue.

Answer:My tv won't display picture after startup using VGA

---------------------------
EDIT: no wait a minute. It seems like the HD 6530D is an integrated GPU, and looking at specs seems like it's limited to up to 2560x1600 resolution, which would be a 30-ish'' screen, but that is a 42'' one.
No wonder it freaks out.
Try to alter TV options (if possible) to have a screen resolution within the gpu's limits, or buy a discrete GPU card, even 50-60$ ones will do.
You can try what I said below, but I think it won't work.
-----------------------------

Try booting the PC with a normal screen, then connect the TV, go in Screen Resolution (right-click on an empty are of your desktop) then select Detect and see if the TV gets detected as a second screen, and works fine as secondary monitor.
Then switch to it as primary screen, power off, disconnect the normal screen, power up again.
I know, you probably need a DVI-to-VGA adapter and another VGA cable or a DVI cable.

Also try looking into the TV's own options and manual to see if there is something that can be done on its side as well.

I then swapped monitors and once the new one was turned on, the shaking had stopped. However, when I plugged in the monitor that was shaking into the other CPU, it was fine. I assumed that maybe it was just hot and that being off for about ten minutes gave it enough time to cool down. It is very hot in the main office space and has been so for quite some time. So I decided to wait and see if this happened again and today, the left monitor started shaking again. I reinstalled the driver to the video card with no luck. I then decided to swap out the video card. The replacement cards that we have are nVidia Quadro FX 1100's and when I reinstalled this I was still seeing the bootup screen shake.

Answer:Picture on Display is Shaking

just to confirm, its always the left monitor that shakes, whichever monitor that is?

I got a bit confused reading that, my fault i'm sure, its past my bed time.

is the left monitor nearer a heat source, or something that might cause interference, such as speakers.

what other electronic devices are on and around your desk?

Hi all
Just brought a pc to tv converter. It came with a sound adaptor which wnet directly from sound port on laptop to red and white sockets on tv. I then tries connecting s video lead to laptop but didn't have a s video socket so i brought a adaptor which went from VGA to s-video. This then went directly into the tv. I then pressed presentation mode on laptop and it found the tv so i clicked on the laptop to tv setting. Then the tv flashed and showed a small black and white flickering picture of my current laptop screen. I could just see the mouse moving around the screen on the tv. Is there any way of resolving this and making the picture 5 times as big?
Thanks

Is there any setting to force all pictures selected from a folder/file to display as the picture and not the symbol. Now, I have to guess what pictures are in the file and open one to see what it is. Big waste of time! In Win 7, all pics displayed as I wished these would.
