digital photo frame
@roramirez you can change or modify your module pull photo from dropbox (replace from folder) . I mean more detail in programming for apply in mirror project v2.1
What? Why you dont synchronize your Dropbox folder into the upload directory of the module ?
If you can help this feature to pull directly from DropBox the Pull request are welcome
I am extremely interested in this as well. In fact, I just posted about this very thing elsewhere in this forum. Question- OpenFrame and Canviz (openframe is on github, canviz software you can download for free) do what I want. Is there a way to incorporate them into the same pi, or somehow use them as modules on the mm? I want to run the mm with all the info for certain parts of the day and then use it the rest of the day as a digital art display for my artist daughter’s artwork.

I also had the idea with the MMM-Scheduler to show for example own photos 15 Minutes und infos on the mirror for one minute. But I’m not sure if I can start for example the program “feh” from MM - as I understand the scheduler has only limited commands (MonitorOff/MonitorOn/Restart etc.). Please correct me if this wrong. I also decided to use crontab to start the photoshow-programm. I’m an absolute beginner in programming, so I didn’t see an option to run a specific programm for a specific time: Start MM at 8 am, after 5 minutes stop MM, start the photoshow for 30 minutes, stop this and start MM again for 5 Minutes … in a loop .
Thanks for any hints

Any news here?
Was anyone able to use MM as photo frame? The flickr module is a simple start, but it only uses public albums and you need a flickr account.
I wanted to see something similar to this: https://dakboard.com/blog/diy-wall-display/
Such an amazing idea!
Looks doable to me. Install a background picture or a module that does that for you and run your mirror with the other modules you want.
I grabbed a picture of the lower East side of Manhattan, similar to the picture in your example, used it as a background and enabled 3 modules. Is this what you had in mind?
@Mykle1 YES! that looks great. Do we have module that would periodically change the background picture by grabbing it from an online service? like google photos or some place like that?

I don’t know. Maybe. Have a look through the 3rd party modules list.
Or better yet, fork an existing module, or create your own, and make it do what you want it to do.
