While a picture is worth a thousand words, you probably have more than one meaningful photo you want to showcase in your home or office. Instead of just placing one or two photos in a frame, a digital picture frame cycles through all of your photos, so you can relive your most memorable moments over and over. 

Digital picture frames shuffle your photos into a slideshow, so those wedding photos have a permanent place to live, and you don’t have to choose just one. Although smart displays can do the same thing, you may prefer a digital picture frame because you can set it and forget, and they have more design options available, which is nice if you want a frame for its beauty and not just its tech. 

These devices have been around for a while, but that just means they’ve had time to get better. Currently, there are plenty of nice ones to choose from. We’ve rounded up the best digital picture frames (both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi) to help you showcase photos. 

The Nixplay Smart Digital picture frame is our pick for the best digital picture frame thanks to its features, photo storage, style, and price range.

Although most digital picture frames require Wi-Fi to connect to services like Google Photos or Dropbox, there are some products available that don’t need Wi-Fi. Instead, they use a USB or an SD card to showcase photos and videos.
