Nothing is as precious in life as to keeping memories, especially those happy ones that are worth keeping. Those are the memories that make us smile inside, keep us in high spirits when we are sad, and offer us some company when we are alone, lost in our thoughts. Luckily, these happy images won’t stay as images in our minds, but as something concrete that our eyes can feast on every second of the day. With iPad’s digital photo frame feature, it gives us the chance to experience the happy memories all over again, as if looking at your photos were the real life experiences happening at that very moment.

With the iPad, you can now carry your photos with you wherever you are and whenever you need them to be, so that when you meet with your friends and family, you can be sure to show them top quality pictures that seem to be more colorful and alive than ever! You don’t need to bring bulky albums, nor take out pictures from frames in your living room, because iPad can serve as a photo frame as well in which you can have your photos on slideshow mode.

iPad is user-friendly in that a user need not stress himself out as it reads simple formats like JPEG, TIFF, GIF, and PNG. Photos are then synced to iPad through iTunes. When these photos are already synced, they are formatted to fit the iPad screen.

Once these photos are now stored in your iPad, you can have the luxury of viewing them on the screen even while you are charging! When you are not using your iPad, when it is locked, or at the dock, slideshow of pictures can still be displayed.

If you want to customize how your pictures are shown, just go over the following steps:

  1. Go to the Settings app on your iPad and select the Picture Frame option.
  2. Although the duration of the slideshow remains constant, you can customize how the photos will be changed from one photo to the next. There are a couple of great transition effects in the iPad that you can use.
  3. The faces in the pictures can be zoomed in as it is shown on the iPad screen, and if there are a number of faces on the picture, it can zoom in and focus on any face randomly. This incredible iPad uses the face identification information from iPhoto, Aperture, or Mac; however, face identification cannot be done with Origami transition.

  5. You can show all pictures in your albums but also have the freedom to decide which albums can be shown in your picture frame. You can also choose what particular photos in an album you want to be exposed. Selection is easy as you can choose pictures from the faces, events and album categories, same as in the iPhoto application.

If you want to start or stop the picture frame from showing pictures, all you have to do is press the Sleep/Wake button to lock the iPad. Then, tap lightly on the sunflower image. This action would start the slideshow of pictures. You can also pause the slideshow by lightly tapping the screen. Then tap the sunflower image again to lock it or slip the slider if you want to unlock it.\

If you don’t want to see any pictures or do not want to use the Picture Frame feature of the iPad, you can proceed to Settings > Passcode Lock.
