    So, after doing a little more poking around on this subject, I have come to the conclusion that the only way you are going to be able to view your photo's in the Cloud is to download them. Huh? If I have the option of listening to music via the Cloud or the Device, or watching Movies via the Cloud or on my device, then I should also have the option of viewing photos in the Cloud. I don't want to download pictures from the Cloud and bog down my KF that is only 8G with a bunch of pictures! This doesn't make sense to me.

    It makes perfect sense from Amazon's standpoint -- they want you to buy/rent content. They don't sell photos.

    True: they don't sell photo's but they do sell space in the Cloud over 5G. So don't you think they would want you to load all of your stuff, including photo's, in the Cloud and pay them to do so?

    Well forget about viewing photo's in the Cloud with your KF. See below-

    Hello R. Oxhorn,
    Yes you are correct. Image files you have stored on your Cloud Drive are not accessible for viewing via the Gallery App. Once you've transferred content to your Kindle Fire or downloaded content using the Amazon Silk web browser, the content will be saved in your Gallery. Gallery supports these file formats:

    * Video Formats (MP4, VP8)
    * Image Formats (JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP)

    More information is available at Amazon.com Help: Using Apps on Kindle Fire. If you require further assistance or have any other questions, please feel free to contact Amazon Kindle Customer Support! Amazon.com Help: Contact Customer Service. You can also give us a call at: U.S. and Canada: 1-866-216-1072, Kindle Support: 1-866-321-8851

    Best Regards,
    Shannon A., Amazon Kindle Customer Service

    I guess I was looking at the photos on my Fire when I thought it was the cloud.

    Perhaps, but I still think the limitation is based on Amazon's objective to get the consumer to buy more of what they can store in the cloud. Have you checked another provider of cloud storage?

    And it only gets better!!! I have not been able to download even one picture to my kf' , Xoom or PC from the cloud. This shouldn't be that difficult ----check the box before the picture and tap download. Absolutely nothing happens.
