Production

ePub is the most common format for ebooks. Read more about ePub’s here.

You can. But it must be checked and validated in an epubhecker. You can find more information here.


Of course you can. Check out our article on cover tips to give you great advice on the design and layout of covers. Read the answer to the following question as well as our production tip article before you get started.


Images should be of good quality, and images suitable for zooming should have at least 1000px in the shortest length. However, the pictures must not exceed a total of 4 million pixels. If the images have text, they should be in SVG format (make sure the text is clear and readable). All covers must have a minimum of 1400 px (pixels) for the longest length.

Tables and text should be "real" and not images.

Use JPG for all "normal" images. Use PNG or SVG only for export of vector graphics (svg) or used by transparency (png).

You can read the book on all platforms where you can read an ebook. Most platforms use ePub, except Amazon that uses mobi files.
