There are a lot of ideas about how to create a media photo frame with a raspberry pi.
What I am trying to do is to use the HDMI display to display a random picture (like all the others do) an inset of the current weather and a current clock.
Much like this.
Everything I see shows things like how to show or transition pictures. One that shows how create a picture from the weather and display that on the screen. I imagine a clock display is out there but I have not yet looked.
I want to take the screen and logically carve it into a section to display the clock, the weather, and a rotating picture. The frame buffer usage seems to be one frame one image. Now, I think that would be ok if an image of what the current picture, the image of the weather (like the example I found) and an image of the current time could be melded into a temporary image and then displayed to the frame buffer.
If you have ever seen a Sony Dash or a Chumby, I am not looking to recreate them but they give good examples of the sort of layout I am looking to make.
Right now, I am looking at making this frame just for myself. But if I can make this work for my self, I want to make one for my parents and one for my wife's dad so we can upload new pictures and they will always have the updated pictures to display.
