Kindle as Picture Viewer

Filed under: Uncategorized — talkintech @ 11:07 pm


  1. Connect the Kindle to your computer through the USB cable supplied with it.
  2. View the contents of your Kindle.   It should have the following visible folders:  “Documents”, “Audible”, and “Music”.
  3. Create an additional folder and name it “Pictures”.  Double-click your newly created “Pictures” folder and create subfolders for each group of picture you intend to view on your Kindle. i.e. “Vacation”, “Party”, etc.
  4. Now you can start copying pictures to the subfolders you’ve created.  The Kindle will accept the following formats: .JPG, .GIF, and .PNG.
  5. Unmount the Kindle from your computer.
  6. At the Kindle’s “Home” screen, press [ALT] + [Z] and the Kindle should recognize the sub-folders you’ve created as “books”.  Select any subfolder and click.to view the pictures.
  7. You can then go forward/backward through your pictures using the Next page and Previous page buttons of the Kindle.

Note:  Resize your pictures to lower resolution.  High resolution pictures takes a lot of time to render on the Kindle and eventually end up not looking too good on-screen.
