Keeping in touch with loved ones can be easier said than done with all that’s on your plate already, but this digital picture frame makes it easy to share special moments with those who are far away — especially considering that you can email photos straight to the picture frame from your laptop or smartphone.
That’s right. Showing the grandparents how the kids are growing or the cute thing they did this morning is as easy as sending an email and having the photos pop up directly on the frame almost instantly.
The Skylight frame is available on Amazon for $159 and connects to Wi-Fi so that it can easily receive photos at any time. Once you’ve emailed the account associated with the device, your digital photos display on its 10-inch screen. It can store up to 8,000 photos, and it scrolls through each one in a slideshow format. You can even adjust how much time it spends on each photo so that you can fully appreciate each image.
Of course, this makes a great gift for grandparents, but it’s also perfect for sharing moments from your honeymoon travels with your loved ones, showing off your pet on your desk at work and so much more. Not to mention, it’s great to have on-site at events such as baby showers, weddings, birthday parties, etc. — that way, even your guests can get in on the photo-sharing fun and help create lasting memories!
The hundreds of people who have tried this product have given it rave reviews on Amazon, with the majority offering up a five-star rating.
People were pleased to find that this frame isn’t just for older people — it’s great for anyone who wants to easily access and display digital photos:
“At first, I thought that this had a limited market, specifically for seniors who can’t [transfer] photos easily. However, after setting it up, I realize that it is good for anyone who likes to look at pics. It is so easy to add new pictures. I have other digital frames that were never updated because of the hassle,” a five-star Amazon review reads.
Those who did seem to have issues with the frame were sometimes disappointed by the brightness, which can’t be adjusted. But that’s an easy fix if you adjust the brightness of the photos before emailing them.
You can also shop similar options on Amazon.
