While I've no experience with them, I'd say you'd just load them and the frame software itself takes care of the way it presents them, you may have control over the transition time and mode also.

edit them so they are all the same orientation, adjust brightness and contrast if needed .
then load them onto an SD card or USB stick.
all digital photo frames will take either.
i would recommend SD card because depending on the frame, a USB stick can be too noticeable.
check the screen resolution as well, as some cheap ones have poor resolution and make
the photos look bad

have it or buying it?
if you have it, then not much you do about it now

but look at the specifications on the box/website/instructions  and it should have something like 480x240  800x400  1024x768
the higher the numbers the better the resolution and the sharper the picture will look

Hi - the resolution is 800 x 600 and the display size is 8".  I didn't get this from TM.  The manuual says the photo display will show single picture/thumbnails/slideshow/personalised frame .. so I have got some work ahead of me to get this ready no later than Sunday - for my brother and his family as a welcome home gift - they have been overseas for about 9 weeks and the kids have put pics on f/book that  will use in the digital frame.  A welcome home gift.

Thanks for the help.
