2. Tap "Show Each Photo For" button to specify how long each photo lasts in the displaying.

3. Click "Shuffle" option so you can also set whether the picture frames will display photos randomly or not.

4. By using the face identification information in photos provided by iPhoto or Aperture, Picture Frame can Zoom in on Faces and randomly select one of the faces as the center of focus. This option is only available when you use Dissolve transitions.
