Make An Animated GIF Photo Frame With A Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

We have been sharing some interesting LED-based animated gif matrix projects recent from Louis Beaudoin such as his Guides for SmartMatrix Animated GIF Player and SmartMatrix Remote Controlled LED Art Display. Here’s another route!

Make An Animated GIF Photo Frame With A Raspberry Pi, from Lifehacker Australia:

The Raspberry Pi is idea; for all kinds of interesting and complex projects. It’s also great for stupid projects, like this animated GIF photo frame I bought recently. Here’s how to make one for yourself.

What You’ll Need

You’ll need a bit more than just a Raspberry Pi to build this. Shop around for all these elements – some will be cheaper online, and some can easily be picked up locally:

  • Raspberry Pi Model B or B+ (The 256MB in the A just doesn’t cut it)
  • PiTFT display (any display will work, this one’s just cheap and small)
  • USB keyboard (temporarily, I went with a mini wireless keyboard so I can easily change the URL of the GIFs whenever I want)
  • SD Card
  • Wi-Fi adaptor
  • Power adaptor (you could also get a battery pack if you don’t want an ugly cord hanging from your wall)
  • Picture hanging strips (if you want to mount it to a wall)
  • A cheap photo frame

What You’ll Get

Once you finish with this project, you’ll have a Raspberry Pi mounted to your wall with a photo frame around it that displays a new random GIF every few seconds. It’s incredibly goofy, but surprisingly awesome at the same time….
