Add your own pictures to the screensaver.
Like the Kindle, the Nook shows a rotating roster of famous author images by default whenever you put the eReader to sleep. But the Nook allows users to change the set of images to three preloaded groups and gives you the ability to upload your own. Add your favorite book covers, pictures of your kids, or anything else you decide.
- Create a folder for the images you want to use on your computer. Name it something identifiable like “My Kids” or “Pictures From Paris” since this is the name that will show up on the Nook.
- Add pictures in JPEG or PNG format to the folder. Note: for best results, crop or resize the images to 600 x 800 pixels so they will fill the screen. No need to make them black and white—the Nook will do that for you. The higher the dpi, the better.
- Connect the Nook to your computer via USB, then navigate to the folder you created.
- Drag and drop the folder with your images into My Screensavers.
- Disconnect, then go to Settings > Display > Screensaver on the Nook and you’ll see the names of the folder(s) you uploaded on the list of options.
- The Nook will choose an image at random from the selected folder to display. For more control, create multiple folders with different types of images.
