Sorry if this question has been answered already, I tried finding an answer but so far have not had much luck. I would like to convert some of my own pictures into screen-savers and or wallpapers on my nook. I know what size I need to scale them to for them to fit correctly however I don't know how to convert them to the proper size. I have downloaded a few programs to try and help me, but so far have been unsuccessful. I have a mac computer I cant get the gimp program to work which is the one suggested by nook-look to create your own images. Anyone know any free downloads that will enable me to convert my pictures to proper size?

Do you have iPhoto on yer mac. As many come with it?
Or for organizing and editing try out the free Google Picasa for the mac.
A google search mac image editing software would give you many more options.
The gimp is free and powerful but a steep learning curve and non-intuitive to learn.

Yes I Have Iphoto but I cant get it to change the image size the way I need it to. I know how to crop and convert and do simple things but when I try to change the size of the image it won't work.

Irfan View is an easy, and free, option. Very simple to use.
Yes, IfranView is an excellent program (it is one of several I keep on my computer).
However, I think that you missed that the original poster uses a Mac, and I don't think that IrfanView has a Mac version available.

Thanks for all the help I was finally able to do it thru picasa. The irfanview would not work with my mac. Thanks so much
