When it comes to digital photo frames, they’re simply so much better than their standard and old-fashioned counterparts. Not only does a digital photo frame allows you to display your digital photos without ever needing to use a computer or printer, but it’s also capable of storing a large amount of photos, just like a traditional physical photo album. Digital photo frames were actually introduced before tablet computers, and are generally designed specifically for the stationary, aesthetic display of your favorite photographs. Thanks to that, they ultimately provide your home with a nicer-looking frame solution that doubles as a powered photo-display system that’s designed for continuous use. Lastly, their wireless capabilities make digital photo frames a great addition to any smart home set-up. With that said, if you’re looking for a smart digital photo frame to include within your current Smart Home setup, then consider having a look at the Aura Frames Carver Digital Frame.

A BIT OF STORY ABOUT DIGITAL PHOTO FRAMES
Talking about digital photo frames in general, things for these simple home gadgets have completely changed right after the newer / more recently released models came out from companies like Aura Frames. These newer digital photo frame models mainly came out from this company (Aura Frames), which is a company that’s highly specialized in producing these awesome digital display gadgets.
These newer digital photo frame models is exactly what cause the market to ultimately change. Prior to these more recently released models, most of the companies that were selling digital frames were mainly making their money based on a storage-solution business model.
Basically, not only did homeowners had to buy those companies’ digital photo frames (which came at around $50 ~ $100 range, and were way smaller than these newer models), but companies also charged their buyers with a monthly fee or an annual fee for storage of all of the photos that customers wanted their digital picture frames to showcase.
What’s really great about these newer digital photo frame models is that you no longer have to pay any money at all for a digital photo storage service, as companies like Aura Frames now provide their customer with an unlimited cloud service solution that ultimately allows you to have the company store all of your digital photos forever onto your digital frame through their own dedicated cloud servers.
This is a very welcomed new FREE feature, especially when you’re purchasing these digital photo frames for someone as a gift, as you obviously want to give them a GIFT that reminds them of you and your love for the person, and not some sort of recurring payment responsibility (meaning those already mentioned outdated payed cloud-storage services that these companies ran before has their business models).
What makes gifting Aura Frames’ newer digital frame models a really simple task is the fact that the company’s newest digital frames come accompanied by a code in the back of the package that allows the person who’s gifting the product to send photos directly to the frame’s internal memory before the receiver (the recipient) even opens up and sets up their digital photo frame, and that goes especially for anyone who’s a little bit older and/or maybe not as tech-savvy.

This smart and intuitive software dramatically presents landscape photos in full-screen mode.
Not only that, but every time that it finds two related portrait photos (two similar portrait photos), it pairs them up side-by-side.
Lastly, this smart Photo-Pairing Software also allows the Carver Digital Picture Frame to automatically crop and position your photos right after you upload them from your Smartphone, and that ultimately ensures that every single of your uploaded images perfectly fits within the digital frame’s large and crystal-clear 10.1″ display screen.
