Hoping someone can answer this question: How should I format images to go into my Kindle e-book? I have 14 jpeg images that I want to be 300 dpi resolution (Amazon's own recommendations). What are the best pixel dimensions that will work for the most popular devices?

When I choose 300 dpi res and a maximum width of 1000 pixels wide, the images show a document size of approx. 3.3" x 4.3". Isn't that too small for Amazon to accept? And if I go with 800 pixels wide, the doc size gets even smaller! Please help!

You'll probably want to search for author forums - this is a customer forum for people who own Kindles. I'd start with Meet Our Authors (link at the bottom of the page) - they'll be able to direct you to the right place to get your question answered I'm sure.
