I was wondering if a kindle can view PDF files that are not downloaded from amazon,also can the kindle display images within a PDF file.
I have loads of PDF files which were included with various IT books,would these be viewable on the kindle,like they would on a pc ?
Thank you both for the help,so a PDF file that was supplied with a book will be viewable including images ,but the font size will remain the same ,interesting .i was told something different today when I viisted a local pc/ electrical supplier, hence the thread .
I have a Kindle (the £89 one) I am not that enamoured with with it. I find the buttons etc too small and fiddly. Yes it does what it is supposed to do - for reading books in black and white. I wish now I had got a colour ebook reader that was more flexible, you can get cheaper ones that have lots more features.
This is why you cannot change the font size like you do with the normal kindle files.
However you can use the zoom tool to enlarge sections of the page, works for me when using schematics in pdf format.
What doesn't work (for me)are things like screen shots saved in documents PDF format as they are usually too small when seen on the kindle screen and difficult to comprehend when zooming into only a section of the picture.
I tried converting a pdf document to a e-book file using calibre but it wasn't very successful with the document I tried.
