Digital photo keychains have become a fun and easy way for individuals to show off their family and friends without needing to lug around large photo albums. Most models of digital photo keychains have enough memory to hold dozens of pictures--which are easily downloaded and automatically resized to suit the small keychain screen. The My Life Digital Photo Keychain by Brookstone, for example, holds up to 100 photographs.

Step 1

Insert one end of the USB cable into the keychain and the other end into your computer to charge the battery for two to three hours, or until the battery is fully charged. Once charged, the digital photo keychain will operate for approximately two hours prior to needing a recharge. An on-screen battery indicator will notify you when the battery power is getting low.

Step 2

Utilize the up and down arrows on the keychain to navigate the main menu and select "USB Connect" to create a connection between the digital keychain and the computer. On the initial connection, the PhotoViewer software will be automatically downloaded to your computer's hard drive so that you can download pictures to your digital keychain. You'll also have the ability to use the software to view and edit pictures.

Step 3

Use the PhotoViewer software to browse your computer's photo library and add pictures to your digital keychain. Prior to adding each picture, you'll have the option to magnify or decrease the sizes of the photos, crop or rotate photos. Once your satisfied, the photos can be saved by clicking on the arrow button.

Step 4

Synchronize your digital keychain by clicking on the synchronize button in the PhotoViewer control panel. This will download all of your pictures to your digital keychain.
