Digital photo frames allow you to store and view multiple digital photographs on one digital frame. Miniature digital picture frames, such as ones you can attach to your key chain, make carrying your favourite digital photos easy. The method to transfer pictures may differ by brand, but mini digital picture frames usually require specific software and a USB cable to transfer the photos from your computer to the picture frame.

  1. 1

    Open the box the mini digital picture frame came in and look for instructions and a CD. The CD includes the software required to use the frame. Insert the CD into your computer's disc drive.

  2. 2

    Wait for Windows to recognise the CD and the "Auto-Play" prompt to appear. Choose the option ending in ".exe," often "setup.exe."

  3. 3

    Follow the onscreen instructions displayed in the installation wizard. Eject the disc when the set-up has finished and the program is installed.

  4. 4

    Plug the USB cable into your mini digital picture frame and your computer. If required, choose the option on your picture frame for transferring photos. Open the software you just installed by either clicking the new shortcut icon for the program on your desktop, if one was created, or clicking "Start," "All Programs" and finding the software in the list of programs.

  5. 5

    Click the "Transfer" or "Browse photos" button within the software and navigate to the pictures you'd like to add. Choose them one by one or hold "Ctrl" as you select them to choose multiple files. Press "Open" in Windows Explorer to confirm your selection and press the transfer button within the photo software to transfer your images.
