How to build a WiFi picture frame with a Raspberry Pi that will sync to Nextcloud, NFS, Dropbox, etc storage location

Digital picture frames are really nice because they let you enjoy your photos without having to print them out. Plus, adding and removing digital files is a lot easier than opening a traditional frame and swapping the picture inside when you want to display a new photo. Even so, it's still a bit of overhead to remove your SD card, USB stick, or other storage from a digital picture frame, plug it into your computer, and copy new pictures onto it.

An easier option is a digital picture frame that gets its pictures over WiFi, for example from a cloud service. What's nice for me is this is not tied into Flickr or another commercial service. I have a wonderful photo frame from a few years back which is now a doorstopper as it can no longer connect to those services and there is no code I can change. I have a spare Raspberry Pi with a fittable LCD touch screen which I may try out for this project.
