    A Visual Guide to Format the Images for Kindle Screensavers

    Hello, I am the user of the Kindle. I had just purchased the Kindle few days ago. But I can not know much more about the Kindle and it's features. I want to create my own screen savers. So, I want to know about the screen savers of the Kindle. I also want to know about how to format the images for the Kindle screen savers. If anyone knows then most welcome, and let me know how to do this.
