Can all the pictures in the Slideshow be shown full screen?

Regarding pictures not being full screen:
  • The frame has a wide-screen aspect ratio like an HD TV  (16:9).  If a picture is taken with the same wide-screen aspect ratio, it will fill the ViewClix screen.  
  • For pictures that are portrait or vertical orientation, we have our special, magic zoom feature that works to fill the screen.  Here is more information:
  • But some pictures that are taken with a phone or digital camera have a landscape or horizontal orientation but are not wide-screen.  Those pictures typically have a 3:2 aspect ratio.  When picture like that are displayed on the ViewClix frame, there will be areaa on the left and right of the photo that are black/empty.
