Default Re: Video tutorial - Exporting eBooks with images.

Well, it seems that images can only be placed at the top of the page BEFORE any text and only after a hard break (such as a new chapter <ctrl> + <enter>) on the previous page.

Any other placement, regardless of wrap settings, results in a 2" long image becoming at least 6" long. It stretches to the bottom of the page no matter how I try to adjust the wrap settings.

Getting kinda frustrated as I see other e-books without those restrictions.

What you describe isn't happening to me. Can you upload a sample PP file along with an image that this does happen with?

Thanks Geoff. Read the help file, and am still quite confused over what that exactly means.

I mean, as far as I can tell, that is what I did. What am I missing?

No. You have them Floating with text. Click on the anchor below the picture and select "Position inline as character".

When I do that, the image doesn't change but its container becomes at least twice as tall. On occasion, it leaves me with a page that is more than 1/2 whitespace.

I couldn't get to my problem file yesterday (was at work)but the attached file is from the file I'm having trouble with.

The images are floating. Watch what happens when you put the "inline" with the text ... it is unacceptable behavior for what I'm trying to do.

You need to include the images. ZIP and attach the two images...

Default Re: Video tutorial - Exporting eBooks with images.

Your anchors are followed by several hard returns.

You can cut an image, move the cursor to the paragraph you want the image and paste.

You can simply grab the anchor marker and drag it into the paragraph desired.

In both cases, you can then change the options for the anchor...making it in-line and where it sits relative to the paragraph it is in.

Default Re: Video tutorial - Exporting eBooks with images.

Why can you not wrap text around the images? Is it because the pages are actually HTML?

I'm working on a book my wife wrote and illustrated. The images were already selected and resized for publishing as a PDF ... but she decided that she now wants it in ebook format.

Thanks Mike for the info about the anchors having so many hard returns. Wasn't aware of that.

Next book will have a bit of planning in the appropriate format before trying to publish.

Thanks again.

You're welcome...

You can wrap text around images. Just not with an in-line anchor. Which is the type that Amazon's Kindle application requires when converting to an ePub.

Default Re: Video tutorial - Exporting eBooks with images.

By the way,

I use Jutoh for eBooks. One of the screen shots below is inside Jutoh, the other in Calibre's reader. It displays identically in Adobe Digital Editions ePub viewer.

While Jutoh still uses kindlegen for the compiling, it is using clean html to do so. The HTML from the paragraph with the image is:

Code:
<section>
<h2 id="auto_bookmark_table_of_contents_2" class="P6">A secondary heading</h2>
<p id="smil_id_1" class="P5"><img style=" float: left; width: 150px; max-width: 100%; max-height: 100%;" alt="" src="image1.jpg"/>This is under level 2. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Maecenas aliquet urna justo, faucibus scelerisque est posuere et. Morbi ullamcorper facilisis orci eget mattis. Praesent neque purus, euismod accumsan rutrum sit amet, consectetur et turpis. In hac habitasse platea dictumst.</p>
