Manual of ePub Maker
- ePub Cover
An ePub book can have a picture as cover or not.
If you already have a cover page in your HTML files or in your Word document, most readers will take it(the first page) as the cover.
But some devices still need you assign a cover picture.
The cover picture can be any of the following format:
- JPEG *.jpg,*.jpe,*.jpeg
- GIF *.gif
- PNG *.png
- BMP *.bmp
Resolution and scale
Cover picture can be of any size. But it's better fitting the screen size of target device.
Most eBook reader's screen scale is 3:4, and 600*800 is a popular screen resolution. So a 600*800 or 300*400 picture is recommended.
SVG Cover not recommended
Adobe recommend SVG as cover, however, iPad and all apple devices don't support SVG cover, so even SVG can fit all size of screen, not fit for most devices. And vector graphics in MS Word will be converted into VML or bitmap, so ePub Maker doesn't support SVG, either.
