Want to personalize your Kindle?  Here’s an easy way to do it, but you’ll need a picture that’s the right size and format.

1.  Visit Kindle Screen-Saver Generator 

2.  Upload a JPEG, PNG or GIF file from your computer and this free online tool will convert it to a greyscale, 600×800 image.

3.  Save this to the Links/Screensavers folder on your Kindle to use it as a screensaver.

Add your own pictures to the Kindle to be used as the screensaver images that get rotated thru.

  1. Connect to your Kindle via USB.
  2. Create a folder named ‘pictures’
  3. Within that new folder, create another folder name ‘My Pictures’
  4. Copy any number of pictures you want into the new ‘My Pictures’ folder.  600×800 is the size of the screen display.
  5. On the Kindle, go to the Home Screen
  6. Press ALT+Z
  7. There should now be a ‘book’ named ‘My Pictures’ displayed.
  8. Open the ‘book’ to start the picture viewer.
  9. Cycle thru all of the pictures pressing F (to make them full screen), then ALT + Shift + 0 (the number zero) to select each one for the screensaver.

There you have it, enjoy your favorite pics.  What are your thoughts on this neat feature?
