Default Easily Changeable Picture Display

My parents have a huge wall in their house that they want to display grandchildren pictures on. But they want to be able to change them out easily. Have you seen any cute picture displays that are fairly easy to swap out?

I have another thought. How about using a digital frame instead? Wouldn't this be easier for them to change photos and update when needed?

My grandpa got a digital frame for Christmas and he loves it.

They have one, but the problem is filling up this big wall. They want to use the grandkid pics that are always given to them, but they don't know where to put.

My in-laws just change out pictures in their frames to keep their family wall updated. I have also seen displays that have picture frames hanging from ribbon and ones where there is a family tree design that you could easily change out the pictures.

What about some sort of magnetic board so you can put magnets on the back of the pics and change them whenever?

These are easy to update. And local.

You'd need some basic Photoshop skills, but I make two huge 20 x 30 posters every year for my mom's wall. I collect new digital photos of each of my nieces and nephews as well as updated family pictures of each of the six kids in my family. One of the posters has all six family photos and the other has all of the grandkids in birth order. It's awesome because all my mom has to do is switch out those two frames, rather than 28 individual grandkids ones and six family ones. And it gives my siblings a kick in the pants to get their photos updated every year (not that they always do, but at least the pictures on the wall aren't ten years old, like they would be otherwise).

I saw on a blog recently that Target has frames now that you can change pictures easily.

Super cute and easy. You could paint the frames all black and find some black and white scrapbooking paper, and I think it would make a nice backdrop for just about any picture!
