Even though it may be digital, looking through a gallery of someone’s photos on an LCD picture frame can be just as tedious as flipping through an actual photo album or sitting through a slideshow. But Casio hopes to make things more exciting?, interesting maybe?, with their new Digital Art Frame which essentially lets you apply a small collection of Photoshop-like filters to your photos. The effects include water color painting, color pencil sketch, pointillism, gothic oil painting, oil painting, pastel painting, airbrush and fauvist oil painting, and are cheesy enough to be appreciated by anyone’s grandparents.
The various effects are applied through the use of an included remote, there’s no touch screen here, and if you’re particularly happy with the results from one of the effects you can actually save them back to the memory card. The frame is expected to be available sometime in the Spring of this year, but pricing info had yet to be determined.
