I looked all the way through the manual and did not find the other items I requested.

Ok, but, i look for dezeen themes, like a bird clock, architectural extension, and kinetic decor....

Have this themes?
Need updates for that?
I know how to do all this, but Samsung still doesn’t allow us to use our own photo in Decor mode (in other words, no frame.) The mono and duo modes have frames, and I need my photo to go out to the edge, as it fills in the mural on my wall. Can you please see if there will be the ability to do this?

Yes, please Samsung let us disable the passepartout/frame in ambient mode on our own photos. Samsung Tv Q85R


Either disable frames in mono mode or be able to add own photo in deco mode

Yes, please

Did anyone ever figure out if there's a way to put that "Bird Clock" on in ambient mode?
