How do you get them exactly 824 x 1200? I open them in Preview on my MacBook and chose the closest number. Also, changed the jpgs to pngs and B&W.Scheherazade said:I posted this on the other thread but thought it also belonged here so...
Time to flood the Photo Gallery with 824 x 1200 pictures
So, when I plug in the DX, I just go to the Photo Gallery folder? I converted color bookcovers to screensavers in B&W close to the 824 x 1200 size.Ann in Arlington said:There are some DX screensavers in the Photo Gallery. . . . .
The root directory is just. . . .there. . . .just don't put it in a folder. . . . .
Thanks, Ann. I just add my book covers as screen savers and they worked fine except, the wrong size. All seem to be over in the upper left corner. I adjusted all the screen savers to 824 x 1200 and most worked great. I also edited them quite a lot to allow them to show up clearly. A neat hack. Thanks.Ann in Arlington said:No. . . . .the Photo Gallery is here on KindleBoards. . .has some screensavers formatted for the DX screen. I don't know how to convert existing pictures, but you might see who's posted ones and ask them. . .
Make sure the pixels are set at 824 x 1200 and the file extension is .png. Scale proportionally and resample image should also be among the settings. I use a MacBook, but I think you can change the settings on a Microsoft computer too.mlewis78 said:I just edited the photo and changed the dimensions (under image, attributes) to 824 x 1200, but the picture came out smaller (it had been 600 x 800) instead of larger. Must have left something out. The size of the file is 115 kb, but I don't know if that is relevant.
you cannot change the image size form its properties. That value just tells you an information not the actual size of the image.mlewis78 said:It's a JPEG image. I just don't understand why, after I change it from 600 x 800 to 824 x 1200 that it becomes smaller. I haven't added it to my KDX, though. I use a laptop pc.
