They look great on Kindle (B&W of course), iPhone, iPad or a Droid for that matter.
The moderator caught me sneaking in a bit of promotion, I've apologized to him directly. (I certainly don't envy your job.) The original photo height was was taller than the forum allows.... I think this one fits.
I used GIMP (it's free) to properly size all the photos and add text if needed. I think the text (embedded in the photo) is a good idea for an ebook since you can't be sure where text added below a photo might end up (based on the font size set by the reader). It's also a handy program for cover design. The pictures look GREAT on a K3 and are fine on a K2.
I'm currently writing in Scrivener (and love it)... I'll probably export my 2nd book from Scrivener as an ePub and then add the images in Sigil... so far I haven't had the luck in Scrivener with images as I had with Sigil. Final formatting will be done in Calibre.
I hope this helps.
