All my photos are on my computer or a hard drive. I don't use the cloud for storage.
If you're not a user of Facebook, Google Photos, etc and just want to play photos from your computer's hard drive or an SD card, the Nixplay Cloud Frame will still work for you.
There are 2 great options here:
1) By using the Nixplay Web App, you can automatically load all the photos from your computer's hard drive, onto our cloud servers, in order to stream them to the Nxplay frame via WiFi. Using a simple drag and drop process, you have complete ease of use in transferring all your Hard Drive (or SD Card or even USB Drive) photos onto the Cloud. Then they become available for viewing on a Nixplay Cloud Frame, wherever it is in the world. Further to that, the beauty of this is that your photos are all backed up in the Cloud, so if your Computer or SD Card or USB drive becomes corrupted, your photos are safely stored on the Cloud.
2) If you're just not interested in uploading photos to the Cloud and Wifi access, etc, then no problem at all. This Frame still has slots on the back of it to add your SD/SDHC Card and any USB Flash Drive.
