View Full Version : Images "Negativized" on some readers

Hi all,
I just noticed that my cover image (.jpg) will show as a "negative" of itself when I put some reader apps into the "night" mode/theme. Ones I've noticed are "Blio", and "Bluefire". Others like "Nook" and "Stanza" don't. That would obviously make it a device/app peculiarity, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a workaround to prevent that??

I simply use the following:

h1.image {margin:0 auto; text-align:center}

<h1 id="cover" title="Cover" class="image"><img src="..Images/....jpg" alt="" height="98%" /></h1>

Thanks!

It's a quirk of the app. There's nothing you can do other then trying to contact the app makers about this and hope they fix it.

That's what I was afraid of... :(

Thanks!

Check to see if the image is RGB. CMYK will give unpredictable results. i.e. CMYK won't display in iBooks covers.

It's not the image. It's the program. Bluefire inverts images in night mode. It's what is. The only thing to do is PM on of the developers (who has posted in the Bluefire thread in the Apple forum) and mention this issue (about images being inverted in night mode and hope it gets fixed.

I just checked. They are definitely RGB images. I'll ping/PM the guys for bluefire.

Do you know if Blio is a bluefire derivative? It inverts the image as well.

Thanks again!

I guess it's right to invert some images and not others, it should be a setting at least.
