The slim, genuine espresso-toned wood frame and custom designed matting of the SPX8 offers a classic style that can compliment any room or office. The removable and adjustable stand makes showcasing your memories easy. Frame can easily mount to the wall or be place on a table or shelf.

The large, high-definition eight-inch LCD screen shows-off your pictures with the same crisp quality that you receive from high-quality prints. The display offers over 200,000 vibrant colors, and provides optimum contrast, allowing you to view your pictures in their natural state. Your memories will be displayed exactly as they were when your pictures were taken.

Three Easy Steps
Displaying pictures on the digital frame takes three easy steps. Simply remove the memory card from your camera, insert the card into the frame and view your photos. With the frame’s SyncPix software there is no need to upload and edit your pictures on a computer.

Sync Pix
Simply insert your memory card into the frame and the SyncPix software will do the rest. SyncPix software organizes pictures into albums so you can easily locate various pictures. SyncPix makes perfectly sized copies of each picture to be stored on the frame, while leaving the originals on the card unchanged. By resizing and optimizing each photo, SyncPix frames can store thousands of pictures, all neatly organized in the photo albums.

Picture and video files are automatically transferred and music can be downloaded to the frame. All files – picture, video and music – can be organized into different albums categorized the way you want. Keep your frame up-to-date by visiting the Smartparts website and downloading the most recent software updates. Frame displays the progress of file transfers, time remaining and amount of memory left on the frame.

Smart Fix Auto Optimization
The frame automatically adjusts pictures to the correct orientation so that they are viewed vertically on the horizontal frame. The frame will also remove duplicate pictures to ensure that you don’t see the same picture frequently in your slide show.

Smart Strip
There is no need to stop a slideshow if you are looking for your favorite picture. The Smart Strip film navigation feature helps you to locate the picture of your choice while frame is in the slide show mode.

Viewing Modes
You can play different slide shows as frequently as you choose by simply selecting which album you want the pictures to be retrieved from. You can also set the frame to view 1, 2, 3 or 4 pictures at a time.

Picture Files
This digital photo frame is compatible with JPEG files. Most digital cameras will save pictures in this format by default.

However, these images can be converted to the JPEG format for the digital photo frame using specific computer applications.

Other Files
