This screen shows you the playlists that have been created on this frame.  The playlist is a group of Photos and Videos that will be played in a Slideshow. 

Tap on a playlist to make it the current playlist, and go to the Playlist screen.

Each playlist you see contains the number of items in the playlist. As you send photos and videos into the frame, each item will be added to one or more playlists.

Quick Playlists: These are playlists created for you by PhotoSpring. 

  • All Photos & Videos - contains all your photos and videos that are not hidden.
  • This Week in History - contains photos and videos taken in the past 7 days in history. So if today is Jan 7 then it will contain photos from Jan 1-7 2017, 2016, 2014, 2013 etc..... We highly recommend using this Playlist if you have more than 5000 photos on the frame.
  • Hidden - these are photos you have hidden. Hiding items prevents them from being viewed but they are not deleted.
  • Past Year - these are all the items taken in the past 365 days.
  • Most Recent - these are items recently sent to the frame. This is the greater of
    • photos and videos received within the past 3 days
    • most recent 100 photos and videos received by the frame
Screen_Shot_2017-08-14_at_4.14.45_PM.png Places - this groups photos and videos based on location: City, State, Country. Not all photos have GPS information. To make this feature work best please turn on location auto tagging for photos you take with your smartphone.
