Samsung Frame TV, how to put your photos

How to add your photos on 2022 The Frame TV

To start with you’ll need the Samsung Smart Things app, and you’ll need the app to control your TV with your phone anyway and adjust all kinds of settings.

What to do first

It’s a good idea to make some changes to your images before uploading them. Check the alignment and perform any colour changes or editing on your phone first. Here’s how to transfer your images to your TV if you’re satisfied with them. Then, in the SmartThings app, do the following:

Samsung Frame TV, how to put your photos

  • Click on Your TV.
  • Scroll down to My Album and click on My Photos.
  • Touch the Add button in the bottom right.
  • Surf for and then select the photos you’d like to bring to the Frame.
  • At the bottom select Next. If you’ve chosen more than one photo you may see Set on the Frame instead.

Once you’ve added them you’ll find your photos in My Album.


Adding effects

Tap to select the photo you wish to see. If you like, you may add a matte to the images, as well as creative effects or filters that will make your shot appear like a painting or sketch.

Can I create a slideshow on 2022 Frame TV?

You can also create a slideshow of your own photos too. To do that go into My Photos and click Slideshow in the top right. There’s also a setting to the right of that button that will let you adjust the duration between photos or randomize it too.

Why don’t my photos fill the screen?

Are you wondering why your photographs aren’t filling the screen? I discovered that if I snapped images on my phone in 16×9 widescreen format rather than 4:3, they fit better to the TV. That’s my insider suggestion for you…

That’s how you get your own photographs and artwork onto the Samsung Frame TV 2022. I like being able to post my own images, and I’m sure you will as well.

    If i buy one of these, it will need to hang in portrait mode. Will that cause a problem for my own pictures and videos?
