Send to Kindle doesn't include graphs and images?

When sending web pages to my Kindle paperwhite, I noticed it doesn't include the graphs and images, which is really annoying since I mainly do this with academic texts. Is there a way to make it include these elements?

Thanks

Dubi - I don't think so. All of the web pages I've ever sent only include the text.

I suspect the only way you could do it would be with an extra step involved.

Web pages are in html format, usually, which (to put it very simply) holds all the necessary images in separate files, and has coding in the page itself to display those image files in the correct positions. Kindles can't read html, nor do they pull in images from elsewhere when displaying their files. So all STK would do is read the text in the body of the display file and display that in kindle format.

What you could try (and I don't know whether it would work or not, but it could be worth attempting if you really need the whole thing) would be to save the page as a complete web page (which also saves the associated images in a linked folder), open that in Word, then save it as a PDF file. Then send the PDF file via STK and see if the whole thing shows up.

Many articles I sent did include images, but only those in-lined with the main text. It is very difficult to tell which images are ads (which you want to leave out) and which are parts of the article, which you need.

Can you give me an example?

Dragi, thank you. Here's one article I tried importing to Kindle. I even tried selecting the part I wanted (including the images, of course) and sending that to kindle, but to no avail: http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2013/jun/06/how-case-austerity-has-crumbled/?pagination=false

Any idea why it won't work?

My earlier suggestion works - I just tried it with that link, although given the number of ads down the RHS I copied and pasted the body rather than just saving the whole page. All images came through perfectly; the only thing that was a garble of coding was the script for the inline video ad just to the left of the par beginning "So why wasn't there more caution?"

But then it reads as a PDF file, and not as a Kindle file, doesn't it (i.e., no repagination when I change font size etc.)?

Hm, my StK for Chrome is stuck on "Analyzing website..." (I tried twice), but bookmarklet from klip.me I was using previously shows Obama, cartoon and two graphs, both in preview and in .azw file I downloaded from the link they e-mailed (I don't have Kindle handy).

I uploaded the file here, so you can see how it looks: http://kinojaca.net/files/Austerity.azw

The free service is available at klip.me and has pretty much the same feature as Amazon's. The latter perhaps formats the page a bit better, but, as we saw, sometimes chokes.

Interesting article, BTW.

Thanks, Dragi! Silly that an external app does better than Amazon's own plugin.

Yes, that's correct. When I do a STK on that article, it tells me it'll be send as a pdf, so that's the way I went. But I just double-checked the STK supported file types, and it'll take Word docs (and png files, which is what the images are in that article). So just save as a doc file, and send that. No need to save it as pdf, and sending a Word doc should come through as a mobi file.

I'm working with a PC running WinXP/Firefox, and a KK.
