You can do more with the Amazon Kindle than read e-books. You can surf the Web, connect to Facebook, listen to music and view pictures. If you have a picture in .jpg, .png, .bmp or .gif format, you can add that picture to your Kindle, and then access the picture from your Kindle's Home screen.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button from the Home screen. Click "Settings."

  2. 2

    Locate your Kindle's e-mail under "Device Email." It is "<your user name>"

  3. 3

    Open your e-mail program on your computer.

  4. 4

    Compose a new e-mail message. Enter "<your user name>"

  5. 5

    Attach a picture file to your e-mail message.

  6. 6

    Enter a subject and body message, if this is required by your e-mail service.

  7. 7

    Send the message. The picture will download to your Kindle in a few minutes.
