Saving great memories to a digital photo frame --need help

by Lee Koo (ADMIN) ModeratorCNET staff - 12/12/08 2:43 PM

Question:

I want to buy a digital photo frame for my mom. My dad passed away three years ago and she misses him terribly, so I want to fill a digital frame with many of the wonderful photos they took during their nearly 70 years together as they traveled all over the world. The problem is none of the photos was shot with a digital camera. I will need to scan, crop, and clean up traditional photos and upload them, something that seems, according to most online reviews, to send digital frames into paralysis. I have a good scanner and am reasonably adept at Photoshop. I'm willing to spend whatever it takes to get a digital frame that won't get cramps when it's filled with Photoshopped pictures. Any ideas? Recommendations?

I'd really like to give my mom the benefit of the latest technology rather than make traditional enlargements and put them into a collage in a standard frame to hang on the wall. I want her to be able to hold the frame in her lap and enjoy the memories as the photos scroll by. Can you help? Which frames should I consider? How should I save the photos to maximize compatibility?
