1) Insert the images in the Word file
2) Save the Word file as HTML, Filtered; this will make an HTML file and a directory (ex.: your file name is ABC, you will get ABC.html and ABC Files)
3) Right-click the HTML file and zip it
4) Drag the Files folder into the Zip file
5) Upload the Zip
Yes, that's what I do. Although, I size them before
inserting them into Word. I'm looking for definitive
instructions that will make the images appear in
I like to use the image in the 259-300 K size for my "Feed Stock"
then re size in word
the Kindle conversion will do the final reduction to what ever size it wants, but the image quality will be maxed out!
A lot is said about pre resizing images and unless you have a TON of images, this isn't really necessary!
Here is the Recipe: (It Works!)
[b]From Word.doc => Word.htm (Webpage, Filtered)
1) Open the Word.doc and do a Save As Webpage, Filtered, But direct the Save into a separate, empty File Folder.
NOTE: This folder should be created ahead of time, placed in a convenient place, and given a distinct name that is easy to find.
2) Word will issue a dire warning just ignore it and click the YES button!
3) After the save as, your open Word.doc will become Word.htm
4) Close it
5) Find the empty file folder (now it will have the Word.htm and a file of your images in it) send the entire file folder (Word.htm and Image folder) to a zipped file by right clicking it and selecting Send to ... Compressed (Zipped) File.
NOTE: This Zipped filefolder is what you upload to the KDP Bookshelf
The zipping ties the images to the Word.htm; otherwise, the Conversion engine will ignore them.
NOTE: If you do not have ==> ANY <== IMAGES AT ALL, You do not have to zip the Word.htm file [/b]
Word for Mac doesn't have a "filtered" HTML option. However,
there should be a tick box in the save dialog that says something
like "Save only display information into HTML," which is more or
Images created this way are clickable to do a full page display!
Even if you reduce a Big image to Glyph size ((Around 1' X 1') You can always click images that were made small by reducing their original size, but clicking these images results in a very low quality result!
