Best photo size for an 800x600 res. digital photo frame

Hello,

I've just bought an 800x600 8" digital photo frame for my techno-phobic mother (anyone else and I would've got a cheap android tablet instead).

Is there any advantage in putting photos on it higher resolution than 800x600?

Or should I re-size all the photo to 800x600 and save space on SD card?

Haven't received it yet, so not able to test it.

Cheers,

Neil

Resize yourself.

You can then:

Selectively crop images - maintain the 4:3 ratio;
Choose the level of compression / quality you want;
Choose the method of resizing - PS & PSE have different options for enlarge/reduce/sharpen &c.

It also means the processor in the frame has less to do and does not need to do it everytime the image is shown.

Yes, that's what I was thinking.

I think I'll give this Gimp batch plug-in a try
