I'm looking for a digital photo frame for a present. I have lots of old photos - some sepia ones that I would like to put on a frame
How would I get them from the computer to the photo frame? Would i have to get a particular one to do that or will they all do that?
I know you can use an SD card but how can I get the photos off the computer

ive never owned one but im sure they all have USB mini ports and should come with a usb cable,
and so you can access any SD cards plugged in

I have a multi-card reader that you plug into the USB port of your computer & plug the sd/xd card into the reader. It just comes up in my computer like a flash drive & so you can copy from sd card to computer or vice versa. I used it to copy pictures from my computer files onto sd card for the digital frame I bought my parents & works really easily. Just search card reader & loads of them will come up.

Attach a card reader via a usb port and introduce the memory card that fits your frame, notice which drive letter it tells you the card is in !.
Then in your root directory find the file with the pics in, then drag and drop them into that drive letter !
Nice and straightforward.

I have two digital photo frames. They are easy to connect to a computer. All have USB connections and they come with the connecting lead. You don't need any special software on your PC. Assuming you have already got your photos onto your PC, you're halfway there. When you plug the Photo frame into a USB port, the PC sees it as a removable storage device. You can then just "send" files (generally photos and movies) to it (or even drag and drop). Operating system/software on photo frame takes care of the rest. Thats assuming that the photo frame you purchase has some built in (on board) memory. If it hasn't, you need to transfer (copy) the photos from your PC to a USB memory stick (portable removable storage device). These only cost £10 or so (depending on the storage capacity you want). This then plugs into the photo frame. It's really easy using USB transfer. You just need to pick a photo frame to suit your needs/budget. I have a large high quality one that is mains powered only, that is a bit like a A4 frame and sits nicely on a table, and a smaller one that has inbuilt rechargeable batteries - ideal for passing round like you would a photo album. The smaller one is also ideal to take to a relatives house, to show off your holiday snaps. Horses for courses I guess. Don't forget to use the Internet to read the many reviews on these devices. Advice: Get a "hi definition" display model.
