Meta Description: Do you want to see your photos on a big-screen TV? Then, you’ve landed at the right place. Here are the top 6 ways you can follow to view photos on your TV.
Watching photos can be fun on your mobile or your camera. However, if you want to have a better experience, you need to watch those pictures on your TV. And everything on a big screen becomes clearer.
Whether watching photos of your last trip or going down memory lane, watching your photos on a big screen is always a better idea. With the evolvement of technology, you can now watch your pictures on your TV, and the best thing is that it is super easy. Follow this article to do it rightly.
Connecting the tablet or smartphone wirelessly
If you have the latest TV and a recently-launched Smartphone, they will support a wireless technology named DLNA. You can search across the web to find out more about it.
If the same brand manufactured your TV and smartphone, then it is likely that you will have a setting known as "Screen Mirroring" on both of the devices. This technology enables individuals to see whatever is there in their smartphone on their TV.
However, if this is not the case, and different manufacturers have made your devices, you will have to switch on DLNA. It is sometimes known as Wi-Fi Direct. You need to enable this on your Smart TV and then load a DLNA Application on your phone. There are countless free applications available on the App Store or Google Play Store. Get it from there.
If you have an Apple TV, iPad, or iPhone, you need to use the AirPlay feature to share your pictures and photos on your TV.
Using the Internet apps of your Smart TV
If you have a smart TV that facilitates Internet apps, use a photo-viewing application on your Smart TV to access the images you have stored on the web. Then, you will need to choose the app center on your Smart TV. Every manufacturer has a unique name for the service.
After getting into the application section, you need to choose a photo-sharing service application. Then, all you need to do is log into that app and view your photos in a slideshow or individually. And also, you can see pictures that others have shared all over the web.
Use HDMI for connecting your smartphone
If you have a high-end Android smartphone, your phone may have a micro-HDMI out port. And if that is the case, you can see your phone's photos on your TV at ease.
All you need to do is connect your Smart Phone to the Smart TV using a micro-HDMI-to-HDMI cable. But first of all, see if your smartphone has support for micro-HDMI or not.
Make use of your camera or smartphone’s memory card
Your phone or camera must have a memory card in it. All you need to do is take out the memory card and put it inside an SD card reader. Most of the flat-panel TVs come with an SD card reader.
However, if you have any doubts, go through the user manual and check it. For smartphones, you should have a MicroSD-to-SD card adapter. And in most TVs, as soon as you insert the card reader, it will automatically launch the photo viewer.
Make use of a USB cable or a USB flash drive
You can make use of a USB cable that has come with your camera to connect the latter to your TV's USB port. Again, most of the new-gen TVs come with a USB port.
If your photos are stored on your laptop or computer, you can copy all the images on a USB flash drive, also known as a pen drive, and then insert it into the USB port of your TV. It will launch the photo-viewing app automatically.
The list of photos will be displayed to you. Either you can view them individually, or you can see the picture that you like.
Using the streaming media players
There are plenty of streaming media players available like the Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and a lot more.
These new-gen devices come with apps that allow you to see your photos on the web, or you can straightaway cast your phone on your Smart TV easily.
So, you can all see how easy it is to see your photos on your TV, and there is nothing to make a fuss about it. So, from now there is no need to see your pictures on that tiny display when you can see with on a big screen TV with your whole TV. Technology has changed a lot of things in the last few years, and let us see if it can introduce any further technologies so that you can see photos or your TV more seamlessly.
