Then you have two options. If the images in the book are few or not important hire a fast typist to type up your ebook into any word processor. The images can be easily scanned. If the images are many or the layout of the book is integral and you do not want to have to redo the layout, you can have your book scanned and turned into a pdf. Then with the interactive ebook software you can build on the pdf. By mailing a hard-copy book to 1dollarscan , you can get your book converted into a PDF for as low as 1 dollar.
Ebook Assets Your ebook assets are all your visuals, audio and interactive content. Do I have to have decide on my assets and gather them all before I add them to the ebook?
Just like the writing. You can gather first and import at once, or you can add them as you write, gradually. Do all of my assets have to be copied or uploaded into the ebook? Fortunately, no. So what do you do? One of two things: You can just link to webpages, videos, sound recordings, etc. Or an even cooler option is to embed the visuals or sound recording.
How do I decide whether to include images and videos, embed them, or link to them? Most artists and photographers will allow you to include their work in your ebook as long as you give them credit for their work. Embedding restrictions are usually only a concern with some YouTube videos.
Otherwise, the main concern with large file size is happy readers. The larger your ebook is, the longer it takes for your readers to download it, the more annoyed they are. For example a novel that is mostly text, readers would consider 10MB too big. But for a large university textbook loaded with images, videos, and complex interactivity, readers would consider 10MB very reasonable, even small.
Research your ebook type and try to stay within the normal range. Where are all these writers getting all their amazing images? Stock photo and graphics websites. Dreamstime has a free images section that you can also check out. Some of those websites may request that you credit the owner of the graphic, so play nice. You can also find free icons to use from websites such as iconfinder or thenounproject.
What do I do about images with large file sizes? Optimize images as much as you can, since many ebook publishing platforms have limitations with media. Apple iBooks Store for instance does not accept images greater than 5MB in size, or 4 megapixels in area. If your ebook is an online app relying on internet bandwidth , large sized images taken straight from a digital camera without optimizing, can really lag down performance and cost you visitors. Here are our recommendations: Compressor.
Tinyjpg Good for batch processing.
IrfanView A free offline tool that can batch optimize hundreds of images in seconds. Sketchfab hosts the work of 3D creators around the world. All of them are easy to add to your ebook. Video Are you writing an ebook filled with how-to videos? Or a more academic ebook about the socio-economic implications of the rising YouTubing industry? Or how video killed the radio star?
If you need a custom made video, you can hire a freelancer from a site like freelance or fiverr. Once you have the videos selected and ready, comes the exciting part: adding videos to your ebook.
The best option is to first optimize your videos then add them to your ebook. If you optimize the videos well, the MP4 files should be well under 50mb. If the copyright limitations do not allow embedding, then you can simply add a link to the video in your ebook, for your readers to watch the video directly from the hosting websites. Unfortunately embedding and linking to the video, means that your readers will need to have internet access to view the videos.
Audio Similar to video, you can upload small MP3 files, but it would be better to upload the sound files to an mp3 hosting site like Soundcloud then embed them in your ebook. Some ebook creator platforms provide text-to-speech for your readers, look for it.
Widgets What can widgets do? Everyday ebook widgets are breaking the boundaries of what defines a book.
So what are these magical inventions? Widgets are like miniature apps that your readers can use while they read. They can be as simple as calculators or as complex as games. Your readers can send you messages as they read your ebook. You can have a live video from Ustream , a real-time Instagram gallery , or even a real-time Twitter feed in your ebook.
So how do widgets work? First, find the widget you want. Check out Book Widgets or Bookry. Follow the instructions to download and download the widget. Then, follow the instructions of your interactive ebook creation platform. For most authors, who have a way with words, but not with images, it can be a daunting task.
Here are my favorite three articles to help guide you.
Book Cover Design Mastery More good advice and a couple of collections of links make this article valuable. At first glance they may seem similar; however, they are so distinct that you can not switch back-and-forth midway through your project. So, unlike most layout decisions, this one is final and changing your mind means restarting from the beginning. Fixed Layout With fixed layout you will set precisely where everything will be on the page and everything will appear on the page exactly where you place them.
Their location will be fixed and will never wrap or change. You can overlap elements or place them side by side and when your readers zoom in or out, it will be like zooming in or out, on a photograph. So, when your readers zoom in, the whole page will expand beyond the borders of the screen. The reader will need to use the vertical and horizontal scroll bars to see the rest of the page. When should I choose a fixed layout? When the layout of the page is critical, especially if your readers will be reading your ebook from a computer, like some LMSs that deny mobile access.
This option focuses on content not layout. You will simply determine the order of the contents for each chapter and they will appear in your ebook in the same order. An advantage of reflowable layout is that each user can adjust the font size according to personal preference or screen size, and the layout and interactive content will automatically adapt by wrapping and increasing page length, thus enhancing user reading experience especially on smaller screens.
Most blog posts and news articles are reflowable. When should I choose reflowable layout? This is the more popular form of layouts for reading on mobile devices and for a reason of course—viewing comfort for readers.
Why do we at Kotobee Author allow you to use both layout options in the same ebook? Because you and your readers want both. Reflowable layout is the most comfortable for your readers, no doubt.
