Viewing My Photos

How is photo viewing on the PRS-505?

I'm one that takes a lot of pictures of my kids but I never carry any around. I was thinking that if I did some manipulation -- basically convert to greyscale and optimize for whatever resolution the Reader has -- I could start having fairly decent sized photos for showing off.

Does anyone use it to display photos? How big are they -- full screen? Do they look okay or are they pixelly? If I store them on a memory stick, will it slow down the Reader when I start it up or browse my library?

Thanks!

Just put your photos in the reader, don't bother to convert to grayscale or downsize (unless you want to save space). You'll be surprised at the results.

I just uploaded a few photos to my 505. I did not edit them at all before uploading them and they looked fine. They don't show full screen but they are big enough to see them.

I have a question. After I uploaded some photos to the 505 and unplugged it, it downloaded all the book covers too. I would prefer that those not be in there, but I'm afraid to delete them. Any tips on how I can get these to not show up in that folder?

Next I will try some music!!

I find photos to look good on the 505...especially if you flip the view to landscape mode--they'll fill up the screen better that way. As Pablo said, there really is no reason to convert to grayscale unless you want to save space.

Wow! I had no idea it could handle photos so well!

I will try it and see how it goes. Thanks for the replies.

Did you know that you can press the button that changes the font while you are viewing a picture, and it will zoom in on the picture? At least that works for me when I am viewing the photo id that I made for my reader, viewed in portrait mode.
