Once a connection is set up, you can swipe through your photos, with the photo displayed on the phone's screen automatically sent to, and displayed on, the remote screen (i.e. similar to the way you would show someone photos on your phone if they were looking over your shoulder).
The new version of PhotoBeamer is capable of transferring ("beaming") higher resolution images then the previous version, with the exact resolution dependent on the receiving (display device). In essence, PhotoBeamer is now more intelligent about the quality of the image it will send, optimising it for the currently connected device.
The example below shows the difference in quality you can expect to see (example from a PC browser Windows with 1600x1200 resolution). Note, in particular, the detail and sharpness of the stick and water bubbles.
