    I have never played much with iPhoto but recently got a camera and have been experimenting some. I named and added photos to Faces and then created a Smart Album based on one of these Faces. The Smart Album transfered fine to the iPad and I can see the contents of the album. However, when I select the Smart Album as the only source in Picture Frame the iPad instead displays ALL of my photos as if I have not selected anything at all. I also selected the Smart Album and one other album, and the only pictures that were displayed were the other album. Is this a known shortcoming of the Picture Frame mode? Has anybody else noticed this?

    Really? Has nobody noticed this? As it stands my "Smart" albums are useless to me.

    My smart albums are working. (I have most of my 40,000+ pictures in smart albums.)

    The Settings are somewhat tricky though. It's easy to accidently select multiple items.

    The settings I'm using are:
    Origami: /
    Shuffle: [ON]
    Albums: /
    Japan 2009 Best Pics: /


    (Japan 2009 Best Pics is a smart album checking for date range, and rating > 2 star)
