FrameAlbum now on Facebook and Twitter

You can now follow FrameAlbum’s progress on twitter as @FrameAlbum.

I’ve also created a FaceBook page (FrameAlbum) but I need at least 25 ‘Likes’ before I can get a direct link to the page.  You can find it if you search for ‘FrameAlbum’.

Thanks for your support!


Update: So it seems that this link will get you to FrameAlbum’s page on FaceBook.

Wow! — FrameAlbum is a hit!

Over 200 people have pre-registered for FrameAlbum in only a few days!

This is incredible and far exceeds my expectations.

Thanks for your support and most importantly, spreading the word about FrameAlbum.   Please keep it up.

What frame do you have?

Work is progressing on FrameAlbum.  I was ‘distracted’ over the weekend by a family reunion but I’m back at it now with renewed vigor!

  • The website login and registration functions are almost complete.
  • Initial testing of the RSS feeds (redirected via DNS from continues.  Discovered some interesting tidbits.
  • Begun collecting data on the various digital frames supported by FrameChannel.  This is necessary to correctly format the images delivered to the various screen sizes.
On that last point I need a bit of help.  I need a list of manufacturers and model numbers of the frames that folks would like to see supported.  Please contact me directly or post a comment below.  I’ll add those to the the list for initial support.

FrameAlbum progress report & FrameChannel halts feeds

As most of you will already know FrameChannel turned off the frame feeds today.  I was hoping for few more days of data gathering, specifically around how it handled new frame registration, before they turned it off.  Oh well…

Pre-registrations at FrameAlbum are going strong — well over 100 so far!  I guess I’d better finish this thing or I’m going to look pretty silly. 😉

Today was work on handling the ‘INFO’ category on Kodak frames.  The idea is to be able to pass back to the frame it’s own ID so the user can register it on FrameAlbum.  Almost there…

BTW, the initial support will be in English only — I’ll entertain other requests if folks would like to see them locallized INFO screens.

FrameAlbum is ready for pre-registration!

FrameAlbum site thumbnailFrameAlbum is open for pre-registration!

Frankly, I’m not real keen on the name but speed was more important than polish for this round so there you have it.

After you register for the FrameAlbum beta you’ll be among the first to know when the site is open with it’s initial feature set.

As with most betas, you’ll need to have a modicum of technical prowess to utilize the service as well as a heaping portion of patience.  The initial iteration will offer Flickr feeds to custom RSS capable frames (and news readers).

So, if you’re as sad to see FrameChannel shutdown as I was, and not willing to allow your gee-whiz digital picture frame to devolve into a rather expensive paper weight head on over to and register for the beta!
