The Frame 2020 - Art mode, can't change the passepartout

Hi,
On my The Frame 2020 65" I have uploaded a couple of my own photos to use in Art mode. On the photo I uploaded the first day I had the TV I can choose passepartout from several available ones. But when uploading more photos today there are only one passepartout available. The first photo I uploaded still have all the passepartouts to change from.

 

How do I get the same options on my new photos?

 

The first photo I uploaded, with the option to choose from different passepartouts using sideways scrolling:

A photo I uploaded a couple of days later, with no possibility to scroll sideways to choose different passepartouts:

Just a couple of images are affected. Images I add "now" work just fine. Deleting and adding the ones not working does not help. Minor problem then, but a bit frustrating not understanding why! :smiling-face:

Nice pictures, just a warning dont look at too much art  before adding photos. I cant add a single photo as the memory is ful lof art I have previewed.

The frame buisness is to do with the photo size there is a US based Samsung forum that goes into this just 1 pixle to wide and you can only get the shadow frame. If you crop your photo you should be ok, and the crop only as i say have to shave off 1 pixle width, say from 400 x 800 down to 400 x 799 or whathave you.

Out of frustration i've created a (free) app to easily resize any image for the Frame. After resizing all matte styles will be availbale. Including "No Matte". (Fullscreen).

To add photos and to be able to change the passe-partout, it's best to prepare them in 3840x2160 resolution and send them to a smartphone. Connect your smartphone with The Frame via SmartThings and transfer photos to TV from the program. I tried 2 days with a flash drive with poor results, and with SmartThings it went without pain.
