in the ‘Camera’ menu, select ‘Field of View’ type 30deg and Return, then type 35mm and Return…

should fix it…

i am curious why the jpeg altered my f o w

maybe, the last jpg you imported was a ‘Matched Photo’ and the dragged image ‘inherited’ that setting, with it’s ‘weird’ view…
I tend to use ‘Import’ and make sure it’s a texture or image each time…
