Hi I uploaded both the interior file and the cover of my ebook, and the screen is telling me both have been uploaded successfully. Then I launch Kindle Previewer, convert my file to mobi, and view it in Kindle Previewer. All well and jolly and good, but the cover isn't showing! The preview just starts on the title page and that's that. Is this normal? And yes, I selected my cover, which is a jpeg interchange file, while I was in Kindle Previewer, but nothing showed then either. There was no option to convert the cover to mobi so I haven't. How can I preview my cover? Thanks in advance.
Download the previewer to your computer for best results. I've heard about bugs when trying to view it online.
In your KDP Bookshelf, Choose the ... button and select Edit the contents of your book. Scroll down to Kindle eBook Preview.
Preview on your computer
Use the downloadable previewer if you would like to preview your book on older Kindle models, like Kindle Touch or Kindle DX.
Step 1: Download and install the previewer for Mac or Windows
Step 2: Download and open your converted book file: HTML or MOBI
Pick MOBI from here and save it to your computer. Then load that file in the Kindle Previewer you downloaded to your computer. You should see your cover then.
Well it's 2.67 MB. Not sure how many pixels that is, but it was designed by a cover designer who based it on the KDP specifications: The minimum image size allowed is 1,000 x 625 pixels. The maximum image size allowed is 10,000 x 10,000 pixels.
