36 Innovative Ways to Display Photos

From Frame-Adjusting Devices to Touchscreen Photo Albums

— September 1, 2012 — Naughty
These innovative ways to display photos will elevate existing snapshots in the most artistic and modern way possible.

Turning home photos into works of art, these frames all have an extra element to set them apart. Whether they be more technologically savvy or design-conscious than the average frame, these stand out for good reason. With the increased popularity of personal photography and cameras, it's no surprise that products to show off these captures are popping up all over the place. Photo albums have, in a way, turned into a thing of the past. Digitizing large groups of photos is far more convenient, but photo frames remain an effective way of publicly displaying snapshots.

Photography is only on the rise, and with such innovation on that front, shutterbugs and design enthusiasts are looking forward to what kind of photo frames will be available in the future.
