Hi,

you can use a tool like Easy Thumbnails to create images of the right size.

Once you have your images, connect your touch to the PC. On the new drive, you will see a folder called "screensavers". Create a folder inside the "screensavers" folder, and copy your images there.

You don't need to convert to greyscale, the touch will handle colour images and convert to greyscale when displaying.

JPEG should work. Could you maybe attach a sample file here so we can try on our devices?

Also, are you selecting your screensavers from the settings menu, not just clicking on an image in the Library?
