Digital photos are so convenient to take and to store. The problem is many people tend to leave them stored in a file on their computer without the enjoyment of ever looking at them again. Don’t let all those vacation, family, and other photos go to waste.
Digitally displaying photos is a great way to enjoy the photos you have. With so many technological features already present in many homes, it’s very likely you may not even have to purchase any additional equipment. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can put your existing technology to work to display your favorite digital memories.
It’s likely that you already have a background set up on your computer. If you’re like most people, your background is probably one of the generic ones your computer manufacturer offered. Change up your display to make it more unique to you.
Not only can you change the background of your computer monitor, but you can alter the screensaver as well. Many computers have the option to do a slideshow of multiple images. This is a great way to brighten up your office or den.
If you’re like most family homes, your television is the centerpiece of many rooms. Use this to your advantage. Instead of staring at a black screen, liven up your room with a slideshow or standard image. You can set an image or images to display when you’re not using the television.
This makes a perfect picture that can become the centerpiece of your living room. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a large canvas painting. Instead, you can use your existing large television screen to act as your very own canvas for whatever photos you feel flow with the theme of the room.
Digital Photo Frames
When you think of displaying digital photos, a digital frame is probably one of the first things that pop up in your mind. These frames are great for accenting rooms. Instead of the traditional photos that don’t change, these allow you to alter the theme of any room in seconds.
Just imagine instead of having one wedding photo, you now have a whole slideshow of those photos. Guests will enjoy viewing the on-going show. Frames come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. You’ll be sure to find unique ones that will fit every spot in your home perfectly.
The first step in creating your very own digital displays throughout your home is organization. With so many different memories spread out through multiple vacations, family gatherings, and other events, it can be a real chore finding all of them.
Plan some time to start gathering up all your images. At this initial point, you just want to get them organized in one place on your computer. Next, move on to categorizing different themes in different folders on your computer. This will make it much easier to refer to pictures you want later.
Once you have your theme folders, it’s time to go through and pick out a handful of images that you would like to display. Try not to overdo it too much. A maximum of about ten images per digital display is ideal. This allows for enough rotation without capturing your attention for hours on end.
When it comes to images that are blurred or cut off, you should avoid using them. In most cases, digital displays are just going to make the imperfections more obvious. Once you have your folders set up simply upload the content to the devices of your choice. It’s truly that simple to create our very own digital display.
