Issue - How to view photos on your HDTV

Tiptoid -

My friend Kevin's 14th birthday party was coming up and I wanted to surprise him by putting a goofy photo of the two of us on his TV. “How do I do that?” I asked myself. Undeterred, I checked out a few websites, played around with the system, and finally came up with the answer.

Here's what I did to put a photo on Kevin's HDTV.

HDTVs have high-definition resolution, but your pictures won't automatically display with high quality. To get the best possible photo quality,

•  look for a memory card slot or USB port on the set

•  plug in a storage card or USB memory key

•  view your pictures

Kevin was really surprised when our photo hit his big HDTV screen during his birthday party. Everyone got a kick out of seeing it there, and they all wanted to know how I did it!

Just call me Tech Dude.
