Secure Digital (SD) Cards
An SD Card (SD stands for Secure Digital) is a flash card for use in portable devices.
DigMyPics is now offering 1GB SD cards to make getting your scanned images on your
digital picture frame easy. When you add an 1GB SD Card to your scanning order,
we will fill it with your newly scanned images at a reduced resolution. This makes
the file sizes more compatible to work with Digital Picture Frames.
do you put the reduced resolution files on the SD Card instead of the full resolution
Many Digital Picture frames have trouble handling large files. We automatically
give you your images at a reduced size of 1280 pixels at the widest dimension. This
is enough resolution to get a clear crisp image on a the largest digital picture
frames, but not so large to be a problem. You could also use the reduced resolution
images on your SD Card to email or make your own slideshow movie.
Can I add more images to my SD Card?
Sure! You will need a card reader either in your computer or an
external card reader. Keep in mind that some digital picture frames can not handle
big image files, so if you have trouble you may want to save a copy of your image
at a reduced size and save that to the SD Card.
