Photos show up as pixelated or takes very long time to load

If certain photos show up on the photo frame as pixelated and blurry but looks perfectly fine on a computer, it is most likely due to the photo being a progressive JPG image file. Progressive JPGs were created during the days of dial-up Internet to allow partial image loading on slow connections. They are obsolete and should all be converted to normal JPG files. While computers have powerful software and hardware to handle progressive JPGs, inexpensive electronics will often experience difficulties displaying them. Luckily, these files are easy to detect since they show up pixelated or takes a long time to load. The tutorial linked below uses the free image utility FastStone Image Viewer to reprocess progressive images in batch mode, which quickly converts them to normal JPGs.
