I checked too. Same save from when I first encountered the problem, same old experimental photos. Still not fixed. It gives me the option to remove a frame also, when there isn't a frame. Only add frame option is the black one. So I'm still convinced this is a problem that came about because the frames were introduced.

I tested it today and took a new photo. The photo still changes when adding a frame.

Just confirming that this is definitely still a thing. Hadn't tried this for a long time, but now I have two culinary arts students in the university, so of course they wanted some fitting decor and went out to eat. Bug is exactly the same as described before: the pictures look alright in inventory and when placed on the wall, but adding the frame turns them all into chocolate caviar picture. Removing the frame does not revert the picture to original.

 

My save is ancient, and I have sims info mod in, but since there's vanilla game bug reports of the same, I doubt any of that matters.

This is still happening, just noticed it a my game, placed the pics from the debug menu, they go on the wall fine but as soon as I add a frame they revert to the Vanilla sea shells image.

I do have MCCC and the clean UI mod installed, but have also tried with a vanilla game and the same thing happens. Patched to the latest Jan patch.

Happening to me too, unmodded save. I am building a base on Sixam and wanted to put a photo of the Sixam Pit Beast dish in the kitchen area. When selecting it from the debug menu, it shows up with black frame until you place it down, then it unframes it. Adding the black frame (only one available) changes the photo to the one mentioned in the OP.

This is what I've noticed in my game:

 

I take the pictures at the restaurant, which turn out fine. They go up onto the wall just perfectly. The problem occurs when I add a frame. Regardless of what food it's a picture of, it changes to Vanilla Sea Shells & Chocolate, each and every time. That change is permanent. It will not return to the original picture once the frame is removed. It still stays as the changed picture of the Vanilla Sea Shells.

 

The only work around I've found, is that If I forget that I can't add a frame, I delete the picture, and go into Build/Buy mode to purchase the correct picture.

 

The only suggestion I have, is that until there's a fix, don't add frames.
