A device to show my iphoto library?

Hi all,

I have an iphoto library with about 6400 different photos, images, logos, designs, etc... that I keep as an inspiration library. I'd love to be able to find a way to have the images rotating on a display. Whenever I set iphoto to slideshow through the images it blacks out all my dsiplays. So... I'm guessing I might need something like a digital photoframe?

How would you go about this?

-jon

Buy a digital frame. Pick the images you like, export them to SD card. Insert SD card into digital frame. Done.

How about Apple TV and just play them as slide show on your television. That will also tie into your Flickr account if you have one to play slide shows....👍

I think a used older iPad would be perfect for this. Export everything to 1024 px on the long edge to conserve space and you can make do with a 16GB one.
