How do you set a picture as a screensaver for a smart TV?
If you have a Samsung smart TV, you may be wondering how to set a picture as a screensaver. You can find this setting on the General screen of the Settings menu. From there, scroll down to Motion and select it. Now scroll down to Screensaver and select that option as well.
You’ll now see an option called Select Screensaver Image; tap on it and select any image that is stored on your phone or tablet’s memory card (or on Facebook if you use the pre-installed Facebook app).
Choose one that is at least 1024 x 768 pixels large for best results (the higher resolution will result in a clearer picture). Tap Done when finished and then back out of Settings by tapping Back until you return to the home screen with all of your apps displayed there.

The screensaver feature on your Samsung TV is designed to help prevent screen burn-in on your television screen. Burn-in happens when the same image or set of images is displayed on the screen too long, causing permanent damage.
Screensavers prevent this from happening by displaying varied images in quick succession, essentially giving your TV’s images a break from being displayed all day long. Here are some steps you can take to change your Samsung TV screensaver settings to display exactly what you want and how often you want it to display.
