Adding Photos

Adding photos to an Aura frame is simple using the Aura app!

First, open the Aura app to view the home screen. You'll see a list of the print subscription frames and digital frames that you own or contribute to. Tap the 'Add Photos' button below any frame to select additional photos or use the photo picker tool to quickly and easily add photos to one or multiple frames. Otherwise, you can use the photo picker tool which will reveal your frame drawer where you have the option of selecting one or more of your frames. Once selected tap "Next" to reveal your photo library and begin selecting photos for your frame.
