Amazon Kindle and Art or Photography Books

When Amazon announced their new pricing on version 3 kindles, I decided the time had come to buy the $139 6 inch screen Wi-Fi only version.  I expected only to use the e-reader for textual materials like novels and essays not to use it for visually oriented material like art and photography books.  Even though I had read that the e-ink used by kindle had good contrast and a reasonable number of grey levels, I really didn’t expect it to be very good with graphics.

The default screens on the kindle are graphical. They show a good range of values and are usually reasonably clear.  So I asked for a sample of Painter 11 for Photographers and a couple other photography and art books.  The samples were very readable on the kindle.

The computer art instruction book Painter 11 for Photographers: Creating painterly images step by step[kindle edition] by Martin Addison has a lot graphics to go along with the text. The graphics of screens and menus are generally clear enough for instructional use on the kindle’s black and white screen, and where they don’t have enough resolution, you can bring up the book in kindle for PC that has better resolution and color. The license for many (most?) books allows downloading to a PC as well as a kindle. I also sampled and bought Derek Lea’s Creative Photoshop CS4: Digital Illustration and Art Techniques [Kindle Edition] and it too was generally quite usable on the kindle and where there wasn’t enough clarity in an illustration switching temporarily to my PC’s kindle software made it clear enough.

My main concern is with books with accompanying CDs or DVDs.  Some of them do not have downloadable versions of the materials on the discs.  If this is remedied, the kindle would be an excellent replacement for many books on computer graphics and art.  I think the kindle or kindle PC software even would be suitable for reading some traditional art instructional books.  However, even the kindle PC software’s resolution is not a substitute for the large format art books.

    I like this review. You addressed the available portable options that one has today. Portability is the future and technology is keeping up. You also answered some of my questions regarding resolution and viewing on the kindle. This is a great way to read. I LOVE YOUR KINDLE!!
