The advancement of image technology not only has escalated the development of digital camera devices but has also changed the way people view and store photos. With the rapid increase in the number of senior citizens and gentrification of society, attention should be paid to the development of more friendly and user-centered designs of digital devices to improve older users' experience. This study set out to examine older users' performances and preferences for the menu design of digital photo frames. Twenty-four participants evaluated 11 different paper prototypes of digital photo frames generated from the combination of 3 design elements: size of icon, size of screen and of icons. The results of the statistical analysis showed that exhaustive but not burdensome display, habitually perceivable message structure, and slightly magnified size for both the display and icons were easily accepted and preferred more by the participants. This study concludes with suggestions for future research and design practices for digital photo frame developers. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
