I would store the images in the /tmp directory so they aren't having to write to the flash drive all the time. Then you can get them from somewhere else as needed, in bash with something like:
scp user@pictureHost:/tmp/pic.jpg /tmp/pic.jpg
Then, over on the pictureHost, you can change the image as you see fit. So you could copy in a list of images or make up custom ones. It would be cool, I think, to have the picture frame show a picture and have a clock display, perhaps some weather forecast, things like that.
You can do all these things over on the pictureHost or you can do them on the RPi, although I'd keep the display aspects and the construction of images separate even if all are done on the Pi. You can have multiple ip addresses such that pictureHost and the photoFrame are different meaning later you can easily change which physical boxes they are on without really having to change the coding you wrote.
