    display photos

    I want to simple way to display photos in a cycle on a large(ish) screen apoox 36". Similar to those 10" photo frames LCD screen. The area being used to display the photos is not in direct sunlight and low light level.

    So, I thought I might go for some form of device that I can insert a memory card that will output to an LED project or a large LCD screen. Does this device exist or is there another way?
    I found this, but is there an outlet in the UK.
    Thanks for any repliers

    Photostory 3 is a freebee from Microsoft, and is excellent for creating a WMV from any collection of photos. Automatic pan-and-scan if you just follow defaults! Insert your music...then just loop the movie.

    Can't you just bung an old PC on it with the My Pictures Slideshow screen saver running?

    I spent Thursday night showing someone how to use the built-in USB and card slots on their LCD TV; why not just get a TV that includes this functionality?

    This is a good solution. Where can I find one like this?

    No problem with your suggestion except I wanted an "all in one soultion". The ACER EEEPc is small enought to use and has an memory card slot. hmmm, this may just work. thanks

    A quick Google search through up this - not a recommendation, just one of the first results. If you do go down this route, check that any set you get will accept SDHC (if you're planning on using memory cards) - the one I was helping with didn't (and there doesn't seem to be a way to upgrade).

    The set I was working with was a Philips, but just bunging TV + SD + USB into a search engine should get you a good starting place.

    Yeah - or ASUS do some ultra sff boxes that we use on digital signage. I thought you already had the screen - but if you don't - then maybe a compat TV would do - my Panasonic Viera has got an SD slot for showing photos.
