I’ve tried a number of digital photo frames; however, I’ve always hated the process of updating the photos by putting files on an SD card and then having to transfer them over to the internal memory of the frame. eStarling may have a solution with their new TouchConnect Wi-Fi photo frame. This new frame allows you to update your frame wirelessly and automatically through a variety of online services.
The eStarling TouchConnect boasts integration with Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, RSS Feeds and Gmail. With an easy, one-time set up an eStarling TouchConnect can receive photos (and videos up to 20MB in size if e-mailed to the corresponding Gmail address) from all these places as they are posted. And with 802.11n WiFi, a touch-sensitive screen and automatic over-the-air firmware updates, the eStarling TouchConnect is one of the most user friendly frames on the market. -eStarling
The eStarling TouchConnect is available from Adorama at a current price of $200.
Google has released Picasa 3.5. This new version of the popular, free photo photo editing software adds a number of features for organizing and sharing online.
In Picasa 3.5, you can now import to Picasa’s desktop client and upload to your Picasa Web Albums account in one step. Additionally, Picasa 3.5 has added face detection technology and will help you tag faces of individuals in your photo library (see above screen capture). You also get geotagging integration with Google Maps for easy drag and drop to the location you got the shot. Google also improved the tagging system for better bulk tagging, quick tags and tag counts.
