Display Images From A USB Drive Using PhotoFrame

There is a way that will allow the PhotoFrame Chumby Widget to display images that are stored on a USB drive; it is a bit tricky, but it works. The idea is to replace the web server that runs on the Chumby with one that is installed on the USB drive which will allow you to configure it easily.

Here's how it's done:

Chumby Widget: PhotoFrame

I've created my first Chumby Widget, a photo viewer for pictures hosted on your web server. They can be located either in a directory on a public server or a private one inside your personal network, so you can use the widget to display private images without having to publish them or upload them to a third-party image hosting service. With a little more effort, it is also possible to store the images on a USB drive plugged into your Chumby - go here first if that's what you prefer.
