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.

  1. Open up the Gimp application.
  2. File -> New.
  3. Make the canvas of Width -> 600, Height -> 800
  4. Select the Advanced -> Color space : Grayscale -> Fill with : Foreground Color.
  5. File -> Open as Layers… -> Navigate directories to your particular image.
  6. Your layer can be open up automatically at centered and in Grayscale.
  7. Resize your picture by Layer -> Scale Layer.
  8. Save your image with either .JPG, .GIF, or .PNG file extension : File > Save as.
