Uploads not displaying
Just opened up my Meural frame and have it all set up, but I can't get it to show any of my own photos. I've made my own playlist and populated it with a few of my own images, but when I send it to my canvas, the screen goes blank then one of the default albums starts up. I've tried it on two of my Android Phones, the my.meural.com website and my iPhoneXs, they all behave the same. Anyone else having this issue? Do the personally uploaded photos need to exactly 1920x1080 to show on the canvas? If so, it would be useful to provide this information like this to guide users when uploading their own photos.
Re: Uploads not displaying
Thank you for the question! It's likely that your Meural is automatically set to the “Orientation Match” by default. For more information on how to change this setting please visit: How do vertical images display in horizontal orientation on my Meural Canvas, and vice versa?.
Although there are no restrictions on the image size, there are some recommendations to optimize the how the image is displayed on your digital canvas.The following image dimensions are recommended: Horizontal files, 16:9 ratio, cropped to fit 1920 x 1080 and for vertical files, 9:16 ratio, cropped to fit 1080 x 1920. The Meural Canvas will adjust the look of a file so that it will look great no matter what format you put on it. You should make sure that your photo is cropped to 16:9 first though (even though the Meural can crop it for you). That way you get the exact crop and look you want. Meural is a specialized 1080p LCD optimized for art and photography. The photo will be re-sampled to 1920x1080 automatically by the frame. Here is the help article on using your own files Can I use a micro SD card to show my own images or videos on a Meural Canvas?.
Also, here are a few more things to consider: It is recommended to optimize images for 100 dpi (dots per inch). RAW Files are not supported.
