viewing images on kindle

supguysi'mnew/sorryifipostedwrong

I recently found the option to view GIF/JPG images on Kindle, found Mangle, etc.

I noticed when switching through a number of pictures, residual e-ink from the previous page will stay behind. I assume this means the Kindle is only partially refreshing between pictures to save battery but:

1. Is this normal?

2. Can I fix it?

By the way, what do dithering, anchor to top right, partial refresh and pan to next page do? Cold one of those solve my issue?

I'm not sure on any of the other options you mention, but if you hit alt+G it will do a full screen refresh that will get rid of the image retention from previous pages.

Does the GIF/JPG view option (witch I haven't discovered yet :|) make it possible to read manga series that have been scanned to .jpg's ? I've got several and can read them nicely on my iMac's 24" screen, but there's that loss of holding something akin to a book or comic book format + when i want to go sit at a coffee shop and catch up on recent issues the first option is out =) Sorry this isn't an answer to your question, it's more of a added comment... question thingy...

Yep, that's what I'm trying to do. It definitely works, if not for the e-ink residue.

Here's how: http://freshtech2.com/2008/03/26/how...n-your-kindle/ (remember to alt+z)

The hard refresh doesn't change anything, which makes me think I might just have weird JPGs. So if nobody has had this issue, all that really needs to be answered is what the menu items do. Thanks!

Save yourself time, and leave your manga zipped up as .zip or .cbz files, and then drop them in the pictures directory or (as of the 2.3 software update) into the documents directory. Then there's no need to do the Alt-Z refresh, as the Kindle automatically seraches for .zip/.cbz just as it does other book formats.

thanks! if they're upped in CBZ, does that solve the sporadic reading order issue?
