If you have a book where each page is one big image, with text on the image (popular format for children's books), you have a couple choices.

Choice 1: Make your book ebook friendly.

An "ebook friendly" book is one where the text is separate from the images. The reader chooses how they want to view the text -- the background color, font, and font-size. Your images are then modified to be placed before or after the text. This format will work on all devices. The downside is it will not look exactly like your printed book -- the reader will not get the same experience.

Choice 2: Keep your book all images.

If you feel that the text and images as they are, are vital to your reader's experience, then we can make each page of your ebook one big image. Here is what you need to keep in mind:

The text will most likely be unreadable on small, mobile devices -- if the text is small relative to the images

An image book will not be as impressive on black and white e-ink readers like the Kindle

There will be no linking, unless the images are broken up by chapter markers.

You might upset the reader -- if they are used to having viewing control over their books

Picture books must be under 20 megs -- so make sure your source images do not total more than about 18 megs.


Again, we can convert the books either way, but we just want you to carefully consider your options and the possible consequences.

If you choose to go with choice 2, here is ideally what we need from you.

A PDF of your book - yes, we actually require a pdf, but there is still an extra processing fee due to the complexity of an creating an image book.

If possible, each page/image being EXACTLY 600px wide by 860px tall. This is required for Apple IPad full page images. If not, we will need to stretch or crop your pages.
