But a laptop could do this with ease plus any castoff laptop from the 286 days to today would do fine!
http://www.am-soft.ru/avifrate.html is another idea. Make an AVI with 1 picture per frame then set the framerate to 0.001 FPS. This will get us to 16 seconds per frame but then we could make it 5,184 frames per picture to get to your needed 24 hour changes. Since any AVI will be compressed you may be surprised that it will likely fit in today's 19 dollar 2GB SD CARD.
Sorry, I don't offer any tutorials on video editing. Just what I would do.
Does anyone know if there is anyway to time a digital frame to change the displayed picture every 24 hours?
We're looking for a creative solution to a rather sad problem. My 82-year old grandmother has vascular dementia, which until now has meant short term memory problems and a lot of question repetition. But it's advancing and that means she's losing her problem solving capabilities. She lives in a retirement community and her children take turns making sure that all her needs are met, but all three work full-time and none of them lives close enough to stop by every day. In addition, she refuses to get an answering machine and she often has her TV turned up too high to hear the phone.
Recently we've determined that even though the building's laundromat will come pick up her laundry from her door, she can no longer remember that she has to put the laundry out for them, or on what day. We would like to leave her notes to help remind her, but a note left on Monday that says "Laundry goes out on Thursday" will confuse her and she'll think that Monday /is/ Thursday. I thought that if we could find a digital frame that would allow for a long delay between pictures, I could put together a jpeg "slide show of reminders" in Corel or Visio. But I can't tell if any of the frames I've looked at would allow me that kind of delay.
If you know if this is possible, I'd love some advice! Or, if you have another suggestion as to how we might accomplish our Gramma Reminding Goals, that would also be appreciated!
