Format Images in Your Paperback

For the best results, all images should be sized at 100%, flattened to one layer and inserted into your manuscript file at a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch). A color photo will only print in color if you selected the color ink printing option for your book. A black-and-white photo will print in black and white no matter whether you selected black or color ink.
