The pictures can only be viewed as wallpaper or screen savers.

 

The PDF files should appear in your my documents library on the nook.

Do they have to be PDF files or will it recognize .jpg or other image file types?

Screen savers/wallpapers can be jpeg of bitmap I believe.

 

Books/documents can be ePub, PDB, or PDF.

Re: how do I get to pictures I've put on my nook?

Here is a little tip.

I created a document with Microsoft Word and imported about 20 family photos into it.

I then saved it as an HTML document.

I imported it into Calibre and converted it to an EPUB.

I then loaded the new "ebook" entitled Family Photos onto my Nook.

I can then open that "Book" and page rapidly through the photos.

 

This came in handy at a recent family reunion where folks were wanting to see some pictures of my kids.

They would not have had the patience to wait around as I shut the Nook off and on sending it to standby and loading each photo as a screen saver individually.

[ Edited ]

I bought a NOOK for my wife a little while ago and added a microSD card. With all of that space, I thought it would be nice to be able to view any pictures copied to the card without having to set them as screen savers or wall paper. The NOOK has a web browser, so I built a web page, added some Javascript, and now she has a picture viewer that she can use to show pictures to family, friends, or complete strangers. She can even use the page turn buttons to change the picture.

 

Since I believe this has broader appeal that just something my wife can use, I have built a program that you run on your computer that lets you pick pictures and add them to albums. You can add captions to the pictures, and when ready, connect your NOOK and press a button to download smaller copies of the pictures to the NOOK. The original pictures remain untouched exactly where you had them on your computer. The only thing you need to do is start the web browser and open the web page that I also download to the NOOK.

 

The program is nearing completion (writing documentation and testing now). I would be interested in knowing if others would think this a valuable utility to manage the photos copied to their NOOK, and if so, how much would you be willing to pay for it? Thanks.
