Kindle Formatting: Requirements for the Kindle Book Cover Image

You have prepared your manuscript and are ready to e-publish. Now you need to know how to prepare your book images and upload your Kindle book cover to the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing system. There are two covers you will need: the Product Cover and the Internal eBook Cover. The best file format is JPG, which is acceptable for publishing both the product and internal cover image. NOTE: I will be talking about the Product display and internal cover only. (not book covers for print) Formatting Images Inside Your Kindle Book Kindle Direct Publishing will convert your images and text for upload to the Amazon Kindle Store as well as display on Kindles and other supported devices. Kindle Direct Publishing can process your book covers in the following formats: GIF (or.gif) PNG (or.png) BMP (or.bmp) JPEG (or.jpeg) NOTE: Images will appear in color ONLY on the Kindle Fire device. All other Kindle devices will display black and white. Internal Book Cover The best formats to use for the internal Kindle e-book cover is a JPG or GIF image, 127 KB* size at 300 dpi. This will provide enough clarity for images, particularly for large images, or content with gradient patterns. But you also don’t want the e-book file size to become too large. *Amazon recommends a 127K size for book covers. “The largest element of almost any Kindle book will be the image content. Inside your book file, the Kindle book format supports JPEG and GIF images up to 127KB in size. Images that are in other formats supported for upload to KDP (such as BMP or PNG), or...

How To Create A Kindle Book – Starting Your eBook Empire

Be among the first to create a Kindle book in your niche. The Kindle is hot; you can get it almost all over the world; and it’s free to create your own Kindle eBook. Great news! It’s not even difficult to do it. You might be wondering, if it’s worth the effort to create Kindle books, since there are still a lot of people, who don’t own the device. Not to worry. You can get a version for both PC and Mac, and even for iPads as well as some mobile phones. So you can find potential clients everywhere. Before you set up your eBook for sale on one of the biggest book marked places in the world, you have to write it, of course. At the moment, Amazon supports the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. It is not recommended to write in other languages, and if you do, special characters from that language will show up erroneously. So stick with the main languages for now, and you should be good. You can upload plain text format to Amazon, and they would transform it into Kindle format. However, your best choice is HTML, and you can produce that easily in several ways. One way is to write your book in either Word or Open Office, and then save as HTML. Make sure to include your pictures and HTML-file in a folder. You’ll have to compress the folder with content into a zip-file, and then upload everything. Another way is to write your whole book in a home page editor. You can get a product like...
Create A Kindle Book – Is That For Established Authors Only?

Create A Kindle Book – Is That For Established Authors Only?

If you know how to create a Kindle book, you have a great potential to make lots of sales and money. However, would this possibility be reserved for already known authors? Or can anyone publish a Kindle eBook? You’ll know the answer to that question and several others, before you’ve finished reading this article. Q: Who can create a Kindle book? Do I have to be an established author? A: Anybody, who has an Amazon customer account, can publish a Kindle eBook. This is good news. In fact, you don’t even have to be a writer yourself, since you can publish books that are in public domain. I wouldn’t recommend this practice, though. Already now, if you search for certain topics, you’ll find several copies of the same book, produced by different “authors”. Amazon will probably want to delete those surplus copies sooner or later. Q: What programme should I use to write my book in? A: You can use a plain word processing programme like Word or Open Office. You can even use a WYSIWYG home page editor like KompoZer. The advantage of using a home page editor is that you can save directly in HTML format. If you use a word processing programme, you have to export in HTML format, when you’re done. Q: How do I create the special Kindle format to fit the reader? A: You don’t have to. Leave this to Amazon. When you start your project and are about to create your Kindle book, you can upload the content in different file formats. Choose between text, document, PDF, and HTML. The best format,...
