3.0 out of 5 stars Images in Kindle Versions, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The VueScan Bible: Everything You Need to Know for Perfect Scanning (Kindle Edition)
I was interested in this book in Kindle version as it is a lot cheaper than the paper version but was a bit wary as no-one else had mentioned how well it works as a kindle book. I have two devices, a Nexus 10 (Android 10 inch tablet) and a Kindle Keyboard.

Nexus 10. Yes you do get nice colour images which at first appear far too small on the screen. If you pinch or try to zoom the text changes size but the images stay far too small. You can, however, double tap on the image and it gets blown up to full screen. Most of the images are ok when blown up but there appears to be some variability in the quality of the images. If you use the "click to look inside" on the amazon web site, kindle version, and look at the image just under "Try before you buy" within the book you can see the quality of the image. I think this is the poorest, most unusable, with the rest being like the one in the "Advanced / More Full display of all options" section which are passable.

Kindle keyboard. Images do come through but obviously in black and white. If you use the cursor to move up onto the image you get a little magnifying glass and a single press on the ok button (the big square one) enlarges the image to fit to screen. Often the text is not quite readable. A second press of the ok button allows you to select 150%, 200%, 300% and actual size. At 150% the images were bigger than the screen, just, but were readable. On the kindle it is a bit more awkward than on the 10" tablet but still readable. Presumably later versions of kindle will do the same and possible give you better contrast.

So my 3 stars is only based on the usability of this as a kindle book with respect of the images. It is ok but not perfect. As you will probably be using the book in conjunction with the software itself, it is not a show stopper.
