An iPad, photos of grandchildren, and total confusion

My wife has an iPad Air. WiFi is enabled, but there is no cell-phone type connection. She would like to be able to move pictures of our grandchildren to the iPad so she can show them off even (or especially) where/when she has no connectivity. How? [more inside]

Design advice needed! Odd picture size inside a standard picture frame.

20 3/4" (w) x 28" (h) poster, can't afford to custom frame it. Which is better: 1) a standard 22x28 frame, with a little extra space (or matting) along the width of the poster; 2) a 24x30 frame with 1 1/2" mat on either side and 1" of mat at top and bottom each? [more inside]

It looks great but could you make it a little bigger?

I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality? [more inside]

What should I do with these vintage motion and still film cameras?

I have found myself in the possession of a few interesting vintage motion and still film cameras which look to be in great shape, including cases and manuals. While they look neat, I know nothing about them. I tried googling them, but couldn't find anything specific enough to help me decide what I should do with them. I'd like to know if they're worth anything and where I can look to find how much they're going for and where I might advertise them. Specifics and photos inside... [more inside]
