8 " eStarling Wi-Fi 2.0 Digital Photo Frame gives you full web-based access so you can control exactly the photos you want on your eStarling frame at any time from anywhere in the word. E-mail photos as .jpg attachments and they appear on your frame.
You can of course send photos while on the go from your mobile phone, while your pets watch your exciting antics remotely on the eStarling. Hand the eStarling Photo Frame over to a non-technical relative and rule with an iron-fist over exactly what photos your Grannie views.
To get things rolling you need to configure the eStarling Frame by connecting it to your PC via the included USB cable. Once configured, the frame can be disconnected from the PC and operates in a completely stand-alone mode. Use the eStarling software and select the wireless network to connect to. The eStarling supports WEP or WPA encryption and has a full-featured TCP/IP setup supporting DHCP and Manual IP.
Once your eStarling is on the net, you get assigned a free dedicated e-mail address to send photos to it. Optionally you can thwart possible spam by allowing only e-mails from a certain e-mail address to be received.
RSS Photo Feed Configuration
Simply do a search on Flickr, Picasa Photobucket etc for your favourite photos. Cut and paste the URL from the "RSS 2.0" link at the bottom of the page into the eStarling web-based software. You can even do multiple feeds at once. Once a feed is set-up Flickr photos matching your search criteria go into rotation on the frame. As new photos are posted they show up on the frame.
Simply e-mail any JPEG photo to the eStarling frame. It polls for new e-mail every few minutes and puts any photos it receives into rotation on the frame in a slideshow format. The frame functions similarly when receiving photos via the Flickr photo feed. You can also delete or add photos directly via the web-based control panel at any time.
If you install a CF or SD card with photos into the eStarling frame these will go into rotation on the frame along with any photos received via e-mail or Flickr photo feeds.
