Stream photos from IPhone to digital photo frame?

by downtowngb / August 3, 2013 12:54 AM PDT

Does anyone know how to stream photos from my IPhone to my digital photo frame (2009 Pandigital #Pan1502w02)?

I see that there are several bluetooth and wifi enabled USB and SD media (Eye-Fi, FlashAir, Transcend, etc). Will these work with the USB, USB Host, or SD/MMC ports on my photo frame? The frame also has MS/MS DUO, Compact Flash, and XD ports if there is another medium that will work better.

(Pandigital used to make a wireless USB adapter (#PANWF01) specifically for my frame. The adapter would stream photos from Picassa. Unfortunately, I can't find any in stock.)

Thanks in advance

Stream? No.

I didn't find any streaming support when I read the product's feature page. I see there is some way to send files (which can be pictures, etc.) but stream? No. Maybe you thought copying a file to it be streaming but it is not and as you asked for streaming, the answer is no.

I really appreciate your time and interest!

Your right, I didn't realize that streaming was different than sending. If you happen to know a solution for sending files from the phone to the computer, I'll all ears.

Thanks again.

Getting photos to move from your iPhone to nearly any PC isn't difficult, but you will manually have to initiate this process.

There are a whole slew of apps to move/copy photos from the iOS environment to an IP address/location on your network, which will correspond to an upload folder on your PC/laptop (or, vice-versa, going from PC to iPhone). Now, if you can figure out how to specify the Picasa folder as the 'target' folder somehow, then perhaps the process of uploading to your digital photo frame will be that much easier of a process (been there, done that). Many of the free apps for uploading photos from iOS will be quite spartan, feature-wise, so that may ultimately be the limiting factor. Dropbox won't help in this regard since it still won't get your photos onto the frame ;(.

On my older Viewsonic frame, I still upload manually to eliminate any sort of gremlins over the wireless network. Sometimes I even keep a USB drive plugged into it just to not have to worry about it any more ;).

Plug iphone into computer, a box will pop up asking to import pictures. Import them. Plug the memory card into pc. Copy any pics you want from your picture folder to the memory card. Safely remove the memory card and place it in your digital pic frame.
