This Wii channel allows you to view photos, doodle on them, etc. and also let you make a slideshow of them with your own MP3 file. It also is a place to view screenshots taken from compatible games that were posted on the Wii Message Board.

The Photo Channel has been succeeded by Nintendo 3DS Camera.

Revisional Differences

Version 1.1, released December 10, 2007, added and changed several features:

  • You can now set a favorite photo to be used on the Photo Channel's Wii Menu icon.
  • MP3 playback has been replaced with AAC/M4A playback.
  • You can now play songs in a random order.
  • The version number was added to the top-left corner of the channel's banner.

Print Service
Before you can order photo products, the Photo

You will lose any changes made to your photos
unless you post them to your Wii Message Board.

The Photo Channel has a feature to import a picture from the Photo Channel to the Digicam Print Channel. Nintendo had plans to make the Digicam Print Channel be released overseas (however it never happened), so there is some localized text for this.

Even though this never happened, you can still see the option to send this to the Digicam Print Channel if you installed the Japanese WAD on a modded Wii, and also have an SD Card inserted with any displayable photos, since the Digicam Print Channel only uses photos from the SD Card, not the Wii Message Board.

Unused Sounds

There's some leftover sounds from Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day! in the .brsar archive.
