KindleSizer for Kindle screen savers
The recently posted script for using Photoshop to convert images for use as Kindle screen savers is great: if you happen to have a legal copy of the fairly pricy Photoshop.
This simple Java program allows you to use the very sophisticated graphics library supplied for free with Sun's Java to convert JPEG images to Kindle sized gray scale JPEG images suitable for use as Kindle screen savers.
Images are sized up or sized down to fit. Images with the wrong aspect ratio to create 600x800 images are centered in a 600x800 image. The software doesn't autorotate images as I personally find that annoying. Polite requests to add the ability might get an update...
Usage: java KindleSizer <input file name> <output file name>

Oooo -- I'll hafta try this! I had to ask my brother the graphic artist to convert some pictures for me.
Then again -- they *were* pictures of his kids, and I wanted the latest ones while I was at it! But this will be lovely to have.

I don't mean to be dumb but can anyone tell me how I could get back some of the original screen savers that came with the Kindle 2. Not talking about the pictures of the authors, but I really did like some of the sketches they had when I put my K2 on sleep mode. THe author pictures I can do without. Any help is greatly appreciated and this is a great site - so much useful information. Thanks to everyone for sharing their insight.
