Photo Batch Reprocessing Tutorial

There are times when a few corrupt or incorrectly formatted photos will cause odd behaviors from digital photo frames or media players. While computers have powerful software and hardware to skip or handle these files, inexpensive electronics will often experience difficulties. This tutorial uses the free image utility FastStone Image Viewer to reprocess images in batch mode, which quickly fixes corrupt or incorrectly formatted images.

Display Photos In Sequence

To display photos in sequence, two things are needed:

  • Set the photo frame’s photo display sequence to “sequential” – refer to the photo frame’s user’s manual on how to do this.
  • Name the photos in a way that organizes them sequentially

Naming the photos properly is important since improper naming will cause the photos to not display in the expected sequential order. Be sure to name the photos using a consistent naming convention that is 8 characters or less. For example, name the photos img00001.jpg, img00002.jpg, img00003.jpg, and so on. The photo frame will display images like these in alphabetical order one after the other. Do not use photo names that are longer than 8 characters, such as my-image-001.jpg.

File name length does not affect random photo displays so there is no need to give photos any specific naming convention for random playback.

Deleted Photos Still Show Up

If you’ve deleted some photos from a USB drive or SD card, yet the deleted photos still show up on the photo frame, the issue is likely caused by the presence of recycling bin folders on the USB drive or SD card. Normally, removable drives do not have a Recycle Bin folder, but it’s possible that one was created by error.

To fix this issue, you can disable the recycling bin for the removable drive, reformat the drive, and copy images back onto it. To disable the recycling bin for the removable drive, first attach it to your computer. Then right click on the Recycling Bin icon on your desktop and select “Properties”. A new window will pop up listing all drives that has a Recycle Bin folder, including your removable drive.

Select your removable drive from the list, and select “Don’t move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted”. Then click “Apply”. This setting will only affect this particular removable drive. Your other drives will continue to use the Recycle Bin if enabled.

Next, reformat the removable drive to clean off all files, including any potentially hidden Recycle Bin files. Reformatting the removable drive erases all contents from it, so be sure you have a copy of your photos. After reformatting the removable drive, copy your photos back on to it. It is now ready for use.
