Almost everything you've read about formatting pictures for Kindle is wrong. The advice offered by Kindle experts and even Amazon itself can give images that are tiny, blocky, noisy, or wildly inconsistent on different Kindles.
 
Aaron Shepard, author of acclaimed books on Kindle and POD publishing, brings years of experience in book design, webmastering, and photography to bear on a single question: How do you make pictures look great on the Kindle? He answers that question, while also providing beginners a basic course in picture editing.
 
Along the way, he discusses how to keep Microsoft Word from sneakily degrading your pictures; how to adjust HTML code to show images at their best; how to make part of a picture transparent for Night and Sepia modes; how to boost the power of your cover image as a marketing tool; and how to create anything from children's books to photography books to poetry books within minutes with the Kindle Comic Creator.
 
Best of all, you don't have to take his word for any of it. The proof is right in the book, with samples of many kinds of pictures you might use -- photos, paintings, drawings, diagrams, tables, screenshots, cover images, and more.
 
Nowhere else will you find such in-depth info on working with Kindle graphics. Whatever you use to create Kindle books -- Word, InDesign, a dedicated ebook app, or straight HTML -- you'll find "Pictures on Kindle" a perfect companion to other formatting guides.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Must-read for anyone publishing Kindle books 28 mai 2013
Par Aisling D'Art - Publié sur Amazon.com

Aaron Shepard does it again! He's always on the cutting edge with information for independent publishers, and this book is among his most technical.

That's the good news... and the bad news. "Most technical" means it'll make your brain hurt if you're new to computer graphics. Don't let that scare you. It also means that Aaron answers pretty much every question you'll have -- now or in the future -- as a book illustrator or cover designer.

I've been a graphic professional for decades, and became an independent publisher (of my own books and others') about three years ago. My husband is a pre-press professional. And, I've been using Adobe Photoshop since the mid-1990s. So, I'm pretty fluent in graphic terminology. Despite that, some of what Aaron talks about... I'm still not at that level of expertise.

It doesn't matter. I picked up enough "ah-HA!" tips to make this book worth the cover price, many times over. Plus that, I hope he'll publish this book in print. I'll buy it in a blink. I want to follow along... and write (by hand) notes in the margins as I work. I have a LOT to learn.

Meanwhile, I'm grateful to have Aaron's book it in Kindle format, right now. I needed this information for all of my books.

For me, there were at least a dozen surprises in this book. The biggest was his advice about Kindle cover dimensions. I can't believe that didn't occur to me. Really. Even in the KDP previewer, some key issues completely escaped my attention.

He also confirmed something I'd suspected about Kindle illustrations, in general. So, that's peace of mind. I'm doing this right. Whew!

However, he shared tips that had never crossed my mind, and I know they'll radically improve the quality of my Kindle books.

PROS

- Nobody else shares publishing insights and advice as generously as Aaron does.
- If you have a question about illustrating Kindle books or creating a Kindle book cover with the best possible images, you'll probably find the answer in this book.
- Aaron is forthright about what works, what doesn't work, and what works only part of the time... depending on the formatting and the reader.
- Great links to plugins and software I've never even heard of, and all of it sounds incredibly useful for top-quality illustrations.
- Down-to-earth advice if you're illustrating with your own photos.
- Great tips if you can't figure out why Word keeps modifying your illustrated pages so they look weird.
- Lots of clear screenshots -- often based on Photoshop, though the same concepts work with other graphics software, including GIMP -- make it easy to put all the numbers and formats into perspective. (No pun intended.)

CONS

- More technical details than most authors and illustrators need to know. Don't try to read every word in every sentence. Just skip through Aaron's book, picking out issues you've wondered about, like image resolution and illustration placement (alignment).
- Kindle formatting is changing so rapidly, a lot of this is "what we're using, for now... but it'll probably change in six months." (Since I've bought Aaron's books before, I know he'll update this regularly, as new standards and techniques emerge.)

Aaron Shepard gained my unwavering loyalty with his "Aiming at Amazon" book, years ago. More recently, he helped resolve a major formatting headache by recommending Kindle Comic Creator for children's picture books.

While this book isn't exactly recreational reading, it's the kind of technical advice you need but probably won't find anywhere else.

If you're illustrating your own Kindle books or others', you need this book.

UPDATE: I ordered this as a printed book, too. Having hard copy at hand to consult easily as I'm working with images... pure gold. I'm glad I own both versions of this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a reference for getting your images to appear correctly on Kindle 4 juin 2013
Par Steve Weber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Having read all of Aaron's previous books about indie publishing, I wasn't sure there would be much to add on the topic of illustrations for Kindle books. But it turns out there was quite a bit, and certainly enough to warrant a dedicated reference to help authors ensure that their images in Kindle books appear as intended.

The web is flooded with tutorials on this topic, but much of the material is confusing and contradictory. This handy reference is sure to be a time saver for authors who want to make sure their Kindle editions look professionally crafted, not amateurish.

There is a mountain of technical information conveyed in this volume, but it's delivered in a clear, easy-to-understand manner that even technophobes should be comfortable with.

As a self-publishing author myself, I know from experience that unclear images in Kindle editions are an all-too-frequent gripe from readers. "Pictures on Kindle" will help keep such problems to a minimum.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Aaron...WHAT a Gem! You've Even Taught Me Something... 18 juin 2013
Par C. Jack - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Aaron...thanks for writing this. I have been answering MANY of the questions you answer in your book all too frequently. Now, I'll just refer people to it. The biggest question I get asked is formatting graphics inside Kindle. I am a stickler for a consistent and professional LOOK on the inside of a book.

Well, I know of people who SAY they know what they're doing regarding formatting and the use of images, but their sample finds them out. However, once I looked at your sample, I KNEW you got it. So, I posted it to my FB page, to my FB writer's group and sent the link to someone who I had just answered the formatting question.

But...you went much further with this.

Your insight regarding the use of Kindle Comic Creator was priceless. Thanks for giving REAL examples I could check out. I also like that you gave tips for both Mac and PCs.

So, even though I will probably still answer cursory graphic formatting questions, I will now have some place to point people to...and that is to your book.

Thanks for a great read. Anyone sitting on the fence about this book is insane. It is a steal at your current price and a no-brainer for any writer who puts graphics/images inside a book they're writing, which is to be read on Kindle.

By the way, I'm not new to graphics/web design. I have been doing graphics for web since the mid-1990s.

Don't even try to create a Kindle book without reading this ebook. I have just downloaded "Self Publishing Your Kindle Book" and I find all the details needed to produce a quality Kindle edition directly from the MS Word document of your manuscript. Kindle does not retain all the features of page layout software so why not go directly to Kindle from your manuscript. Find the details here for optimum conversion of your text, photos, drawings, and other graphics. Fred Sias, Woodsmere Press, LLC

No need to write a long review of this eBook so I'll just sum it up this way:

If you're using Word to prepare your manuscript for an eBook and you have images/photos or other graphics to be displayed within the contents, then you need this book by Aaron.
