Then I uploaded an identical set of 86 photos from my library to each frame, from portraits to architectural shots taken with phones and digital cameras. "A customer was initially skeptical about the display quality because of its low price point, but ultimately they were “pleasantly impressed” with the” excellent, vivid colors that make all my photos look as good as they do on a much more expensive computer screen. Most frames allow you to customize photos to fill the frame when the aspect ratio of your photo differs from the image, although this method sometimes distorts or crosses parts of images. “Other reviewers assure that the app is simply set up: “My husband also downloaded the app and created an account, so when I 'friend' he could also send pictures to the frame,” says a customer who finds it's the “best digital frame I've ever owned.” Another reviewer who says that the frame has the right size for an office table, is also pleased with its “high resolution” and “satisfactory” size. Here at the Strategist we like to think ourselves crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we want, we can't try everything. Another satisfied customer calls this the ideal frame for their bedside table because “it is the perfect size and also because it has the clock and calendar function.

A new generation of supporting companies like Meural is emerging, combining larger formats, integrated access to artistic content and innovative control mechanisms. Another option if you want to use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant is to use a smart display as a photo frame, although in the end this could be more expensive.
