If you would like to have your first frame blank, download this empty frame and upload it to your custom frame channel. Please make sure it's the first frame in the channel for the blank frame to be first on the Ripples App. When your not following Ripples Dynamic content and you have frames uploaded, you will need a blank frame in order to send selfies and custom images without a frame. Please find a blank frame free to download at the bottom of this article.
You need to have a frame in the private libraries so that the frame isn't mandatory.
If following Ripples default content you will have a blank frame already uploaded.
