Disney Photoframe

One of the things I love about the Pi is how it makes projects that would have been hard a few years ago much simpler.

You can probably tell from my homepage that I am a huge fan of Disney and love everything about the parks, the films, the music etc .After getting back from our holiday last year I decided that I wanted a nice way of displaying our holiday photos.

This is an incredibly simple build and looks great on my wall.

I’ve mounted a Adafruit 2.8” touchscreen display into a smaller frame within the larger frame. A few people have asked why I didn’t use a bigger screen to fill the frame but I wanted my images to match the pictures around the outside of the frame.

At the moment the display simply shows photos on a loop but I do intend to add current weather icons to the top right of the image.

I am using fbi to display the slide show.

sudo fbi -a -t 5 /dev/fb1 -noverbose /home/pi/disney/*.jpg
