      Yes, the iPad can certainly serve as a digital picture frame with slide show and transition effects. Many people don't know that. For security, you can set it so that it is locked with password. It will run the slideshow without password, but when a nosy visitor wants dismisses the slideshow to try to get into your iPad, the password is needed.
