Output Profile for Kindle Fire HDX 8.9"

Hello,

I am currently attempting to use calibre to convert some manga that is in the cbz format to AZW3 to view on my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9".

However, when I view the converted file on my Kindle, it is too small. I have narrowed this down to being because none of the output profiles have a big enough resolution (1600x2560). The biggest one in the write dimensions being the nook HD (1080x1920?). Using this output profile I'm able to get a reasonably sized image, but not as big as I would like(readability)

How would I go about solving this problem? I've been searching but I can't find an appropriate output profile.

Thanks a ton

I believe the Tablet profile doesn't resize images.

IMHO using Perfect Viever is better idea than converting images for KDHX.

Our Kindle Comic Converter have KDHX output profiles too but I'm not convinced that this model need any conversion. If you will try KCC I have two tips for you:
- Disable High/Ultra quality as high quality zooming is not needed on machine with this resolution.
- Enable Strech/Upscale if you want images use full screen. I'm quite sure that your source images are smaller than KHDX resolution.

Thanks for the responses,

Jimmy: I need it to make the images the size of the screen, otherwise they are waaaayyy too small.

Acidweb: Thanks for the idea, I'll give it a shot!
