Kindle Previewer: Differences between Kindle and iPhone/iPad modes

First off, I apologize if this could go in a more prudent location.

My question is regarding Kindle and Kindle DX modes vs. iphone and iPad modes in Kindle Previewer. Pictures are showing up for me in the Kindle Previewer only in iphone and iPad mode but not the Kindle modes. It's important than the pictures in question appear regardless of the device.

Is this merely a Kindle Previewer quirk and a minor inaccurate annoyance or is there something different I have to do to ensure the pics show up in Kindle devices?

Thank you in advance.

The pictures should show in the Kindle modes if coded properly. What are you using to create your mobi's? Do you have any examples of the source xhtml that's working in iP(hone|ad) mode but not in the Kindle modes?

I've converted to Mobi using both the .doc and .html files. I didn't use any kind of coding. I simply inserted the pics in the correct place within the .doc and used mobipocket to build from there. The pics show in the .html file when I convert to html and again, they show in iPad/iphone modes regardless of what I'm converting from.

Kindle/DX not so much.

Can you post a small mobi sample where a picture shows in iPad/iPhone mode but not in Kindle/DX mode? It might be easier to see what's going on. Are they normal jpeg/gif images?

Turns out the problem was, in fact, the PNG format. .Jpegs work but look bad. I'll adjust their size and hopefully that'll do the trick! Thank you!
