Method and System for Leveling a Digital Photo Frame

The method and system is disclosed for leveling a digital photo frame. In accordance with the method and system, the digital photo frame is provided with a built-in gyroscope. The built-in gyroscope measures level of the digital photo frame with respect to ground. Accordingly, a user is instructed to level it correctly with respect to the ground,

In an exemplary implementation of the system, a self-leveling mode is activated in the digital photo frame while installing the digital photo frame. The built-in gyroscope measures level of the digital photo frame with respect to ground. In case, the digital photo frame is not aligned appropriately, a level indicator is displayed on the digital photo frame. The level indicator includes instructions about degree of rotation and direction required to correctly level the digital photo frame. Accordingly, the user adjusts the level of the digital photo frame while taking into account the degree of rotation and direction as suggested by the digital photo frame. Once the digital photo frame is correctly leveled with respect to the ground, the digital photo frame may display images in a normal mode without displaying the level indicator. In an instance when the digital photo frame requires re- adjustment in the level after a period of time, the digital photo frame again displays the level indicator. The level indicator disappears when the digital photo frame is leveled correc...
