The very best high-density screen shows off your treasured photos with the same 'real life' rich detail and vibrant colors as high-quality prints.
Multiple Viewing Modes
Flexible display modes give you the freedom to display your photos in a variety of different views.

Keep in mind that Philips digital photo frames are compatible with JPEG files. The JPEG format is in accordance with the camera industry standards and the frame is designed to display photos with the same industry standards. Pictures that are not in JPEG format, such as web, scanned or RAW images, cannot be displayed on the digital photo frame. However, these images can be converted to the JPEG format for the digital photo frame using specific computer applications.
You can switch between different slideshow photos by using different memory cards. When a memory card is connected to the digital photo frame, the slideshow will play photos stored on that specific card. By permanently inserting a memory card into the digital frame, it will perform the same functions as the internal memory. By using two memory card slots simultaneously, one memory card slot can be dedicated for external memory and the other for reading and copying pictures from the camera memory card.
Multiple-photo collage effect
The Multiple-photo collage is a slideshow effect that displays your photos in collage form that will automatically and randomly compile different photos together to avoid unattractive borders that may result from photos which are smaller than screen size.
The digital photo frame has some built-in memory that stores a few of your favorite pictures directly onto the frame. Pictures will continue to display on your frame even when you don’t have a memory card inserted into the frame. The internal memory on your digital photo frame is a fixed amount and cannot be expanded. However, you can increase the amount of pictures that can be displayed by using memory cards with larger memory capacity. The digital photo frame features two built-in memory card readers for easy viewing and sharing of photos stored on the memory cards.

Imagen is exclusive Philips photo enhancement technology that automatically analyzes your photos to the correct color and adjust for optimal contrast. Imagen separates colors to avoid "crosstalk" and adjusts brightness distribution for great visual contrast and corrects Gamma for color accuracy.
RadiantColor is an exclusive Philips technology for displaying smaller photos in the optimal 4:3 ratio by extending the color on the edges of a smaller photo to the sides of the screen. This eliminates unwanted black bars and aspect ratio distortion.
SmartContrast analyzes the contents you are displaying and automatically adjusts colors and controls backlight intensity to dynamically enhance contrast. This process results in the best digital images and optimum contrast for more entertainment fun when viewing photos and videos that have dark hues. When selecting the Economy mode the contrast is adjusted and backlighting is fine-tuned for the right combination for your display.

Things to know when shopping for a Digital Photo Frame:
Features and Attributes
Similar to monitors, the screen size of a digital picture frame is measured in inches diagonally from corner to corner. The screen size should be the size of the visible display and not include the surrounding frame.
The resolution is the number of pixels that a digital photo frame can display. The higher the resolution the crisper the image. A high resolution is most important on large screens in order to avoid a blurred or pixilated display of your pictures.
An image’s aspect ratio represents a comparison of its width to height. A few frames can display images in an HDTV aspect ratio of 16:9 but most use the TV aspect ratio of 4:3. This means for every 4 units of width there are 3 units of height. The larger the gap between the two numbers the wider the display is going to be. Some digital photo frames automatically crop pictures to fit the display’s aspect ratio. If you have a frame that does crop photos with an aspect ratio different from the screen's aspect ratio, two sides of the photo are cropped so the screen is filled by the central portion of the image. Keep in mind, if you display portrait oriented images on a screen with a wide aspect ratio, they will either be very small on the screen or heavily cropped.
A lot of the time your digital photo frame will be turned off so you want to ensure that the frame itself looks nice even when it isn’t displaying your favorite photos.
Memory cards increase the number of photos the frame can display. The amount of pictures that can be displayed is limited to the size of the memory card. Try to find a frame that is compatible with the memory card you use in your camera. That way you’ll be able to switch your memory card between your camera and frame with ease.
Internal memory refers to the space or number of pictures the digital photo frame can save and store without the help of a memory card. Usually, the amount of internal memory is small. If you are hoping to display a large (or even moderate) amount of photos on your frame consider looking into purchasing a memory card with a large amount of memory space.
Most digital photo frames rely on AC power to run. However, some frames have built-in rechargeable batteries. Frames with rechargeable batteries are ideal if you plan on hanging your frame on the wall. This means the unsightly trailing wires will be seen only when the frame is being charged.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I increase the memory size to store more pictures on my DPD?
No. The internal memory of DPD is fixed and cannot be expanded. However, you could switch between different photos by using different memory cards on DPD.
Why doesn't my Digital Photo Frame show some of my photos?
Digital cameras take photos and store them in JPEG format according to camera industry standards. Digital Photo Frame is designed to show photos following the same industry standards. Some images, such as web images, scanned images, or photos in RAW format from professional cameras, are not stored according to camera industry standards and therefore cannot be correctly displayed on Digital Photo Frame. Use PC applications to convert such images into standard JPEG format for Digital Photo Frame.
Is the LCD screen touch-enabled?
The LCD screen is not touch-enabled. Use the buttons on the back to control Digital Photo Frame.
Can I print photos from Digital Photo Frame?
No, it does not support direct photo printing.
Why doesn't my Digital Photo Frame go into Auto-off status after I set it?
First, make sure you set CURRENT TIME, AUTO OFF at, and AUTO ON at correctly. Digital Photo Frame will automatically turn off its display exactly at the AUTO OFF time. If the time has already passed for the day, it will start entering AUTO OFF status at the specified time from the next day.
Will the LCD screen be damaged if I keep showing the same photo for a long time?
No. Digital Photo Frame can display the same photo continuously for 1,000 hours without any damage to the LCD screen.
