This little beast is able to contain around 150 photos, depending on the jpeg settings used. Its display is a 720x480 LCD.
Once you connect the frame through usb, a new scsi-like device is available. To my surprise, there is no partition presented by the frame, so that one must mount /dev/sda directly.
For various reasons, I quickly wondered if I could not perform the whole crop and resize business myself. I resized some pictures, and had a look more in-depth at the frame directories.
The layout of the files in the frame is the following:
. `-- DCIM `-- 100FRAME |-- DPD_0001.JPG . . |-- DPD_0013.JPG `-- DPD_0014.JPGIf you directly "drop" your picture under DCIM/100FRAME with a DPD_XXX.JPG name, they are indeed useable by the frame. (Note that firmware 1.51 wants the names in caps, or it will make a copy.)
But... sadly, they are not considered by the frame for its diaporama. You have to manually tell it to add them to the diaporama. Slow, and painful! Definitely not a solution.
Et voila! No more manual operation required. Everything can now be scripted.
You can use that script to convert any jpeg, and put them in DCIM/100FRAME/DPD_XXX.JPG directly.
Note that for the script to work, you need to copy the binary header that gets prepended to all jpeg files.
Thanks for your feedback Bob, and sorry for being so slow updating the page!
