Can I Use Picture Keeper with a digital photo frame or TV?

Yes!

Picture Keeper works with most digital photo frames and smart TVs that have USB connections. Picture Keeper just plugs in and your pictures will be displayed.

Does it work with ALL digital photo frames and TVs?
As you can imagine, there are hundreds of television and digital picture frame models and each has its own way of working with USB drives. We’ve tested our Picture Keeper drives on many different brands with great results. The Picture Keeper drive downloads your photos in the same file structure that is on your computer. TVs and digital photo frames then vary in the way they can process this information. The issue lies in the “operating system” of the TV or photo frame and how it looks at FOLDERS. TVs and photo frames can have different “operating systems,” even if made by the same manufacturer.

When you insert a USB drive in the TV or digital frame, does it display folders?
If so, your TV or photo frame will work with Picture Keeper.  The Backups folder is where the photos are stored. After opening this folder, you can navigate further to the location of the pictures that you wish to display.

Even the Picture Keeper Pro 500GB?

Unfortunately, no.  Smart TVs and digital photo frames do not supply enough power for a hard drive based product like the Picture Keeper Pro 500GB.

If you need a large capacity Picture Keeper that is compatible with a digital photo frame, please consider the Picture Keeper Connect 64GB, the Picture Keeper Pro 64GB flash drive based products, or our Create Your Own software for your own flash drive.

Play it safe.

We recommend purchasing another Picture Keeper drive so that you can use one to display your pictures on a digial frame or TV and always keep the other one in a safe place!
