I'm going to try converting my jpg images to png as John123 suggests.

This is a Kindle display problem, (obviously!) not a Calibre problem. If you go into Photoshop (File Menu>"Save for Web & Devices") and save all of your jpegs with this step it will completely solve your problem. Just do this as your last step before converting to .mobi in Calibre. You can just batch automate the entire "images" subfolder.
