RAW images converted to jpeg in Phase One Capture One Pro DO NOT show up in Facebook app on Kindle Fire

Almost all photographs - but strangely not every single one - I have been converting from RAW files to jpegs using Phase One Capture One Pro have not been showing up in the Facebook app on Kindle Fire.

A blank space appears in the app. Any accompanying text can be seen, just the image will not display.

I can't work out why one of the seven images I did upload (via a PC) did work on the app. It is possible this has something to do with the embedded colour profile (which was Adobe RGB 1998 I think) but all that stuff is a bit too complicated.

However, unlike the problem with Nikon image settings displaying washed out in the Mozilla Firefox browser, there is an easy fix to this problem.

And it's the fix you should always try before anything else:

Uninstall the Facebook app. Download the (new) Facebook app.

The problem is fixed.

It should be as easy as that.

NEW BOOK: Stay At Home Dads Are Not Welcome Here (out soon)

Stay At Home Dads Are Not Welcome Here is my new book which mixes writing and photography as I document my horrific experiences of being the only stay at home dad in the village.

The book will be available on Kindle in April 2014, and in paper format soon afterwards.

I was very fortunate to be able to use a Nokia Lumia 1020 mobile (cell) phone for this project. Nokia's award-winning camera phone - which takes the best images in the business - allowed me to visually document the project without distressing other parents at playgroups.

The book is full of the usual wry observations and moments of self doubt which my many, many fans love so much. If you're interested in the unfathomable relationship between the male and the female you will love this book.

If all this does not make you want to read this book, I don't know what will. Apart from the photos of me in sexy swimming trunks.

NOTE: You can find out more about the book here:
