The BlackBerry® Browser renders the following image types:
  • BMP
  • GIF, including animated GIFs
  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • TIFF

In Column View, images are scaled to fit the width of the BlackBerry device screen, less 5 pixels for the scrollbar. If users want to view the full image, they can click the Full Image menu item to download it. If the browser is communicating with the network gateway, the network gateway sends the image to the browser without scaling it. However, network gateways typically have a size limit for images.

Users can specify a limit for the number times that animations can loop. Animated GIFs can repeat either the default value of 10 times or the number of times specified in the GIF repeat value.

In BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.2 or later, users can specify the image quality for images rendered in the BlackBerry Browser. The lower the image quality, the faster the image is rendered.
