Inky impression eInk built in a picture frame (automatic resizing of pictures with code example!)

I used the Inky impression eInk display to automatically show pictures I send it via email! Made with a Pi Zero W, a Pimoroni inky impression and an IKEA RIBBA picture frame (10x15cm) which fits (almost 😅) perfectly! A cron job checks for new Mail every 5 minutes, automatically resizes the attached image to fit the eInk display’s resolution and displays it. You can also select the picture from your smartphone.

See sample code on my github: GitHub - fapeg/eink_picture_frame

This is really cool. I was going to do an art gallery type thing with mine and this is something I would never have thought of.
