It never fails that when people come over, they are mesmerized by Kevin’s and my digital photo frame. Exactly 1000 family photos pass by in an ever-changing slide-show, and there is always at least one photo that will evoke a “could I have that picture?” response from the viewer.
My typical way of handling the situation is to email a .jpg from my computer (when I remember to do it), but I like the idea behind Epson’s new digital photo frame and printer much better. If I owned this device, all I would have to do would be to hit a button and immediately print a 4″ x 6″ of the requested photo.
