Today's digital picture frames, even more than the frames of 18 months ago, make it easy to keep loved ones and memorable events close to your heart--and visible on your desk or wall. Here are our picks for the best digital photo frames currently available. Note that frames come in a multitude of shapes and sizes; and even though all of them will display your photos, they're far from equal. The ten photo frames presented in this slideshow are the best we've seen, but keep these important points in mind before you buy a frame:
1. Resolution: A higher resolution will do a better job of reproducing images.
2. Aspect ratio: A widescreen (16:9) format might be an attractive way to display images in an nontraditional manner; but a standard (4:3) format may match the size of your images more closely (depending on the camera you're using).
3. Built-in connectivity: Look for Wi-Fi capability if you want the frame to access content that lives on a PC or comes from the Internet. Consider cellular broadband if you want to interact with and send content to the frame.
4. Audio: Built-in speakers enable viewers to enjoy slideshows set to music.
