That's the good news... and the bad news. "Most technical" means it'll make your brain hurt if you're new to computer graphics. Don't let that scare you. It also means that Aaron answers pretty much every question you'll have -- now or in the future -- as a book illustrator or cover designer.
I've been a graphic professional for decades, and became an independent publisher (of my own books and others') about three years ago. My husband is a pre-press professional. And, I've been using Adobe Photoshop since the mid-1990s. So, I'm pretty fluent in graphic terminology. Despite that, some of what Aaron talks about... I'm still not at that level of expertise.
It doesn't matter. I picked up enough "ah-HA!" tips to make this book worth the cover price, many times over. Plus that, I hope he'll publish this book in print. I'll buy it in a blink. I want to follow along... and write (by hand) notes in the margins as I work. I have a LOT to learn.
Meanwhile, I'm grateful to have Aaron's book it in Kindle format, right now. I needed this information for all of my books.
For me, there were at least a dozen surprises in this book. The biggest was his advice about Kindle cover dimensions. I can't believe that didn't occur to me. Really. Even in the KDP previewer, some key issues completely escaped my attention.
He also confirmed something I'd suspected about Kindle illustrations, in general. So, that's peace of mind. I'm doing this right. Whew!
However, he shared tips that had never crossed my mind, and I know they'll radically improve the quality of my Kindle books.Read more ›
The web is flooded with tutorials on this topic, but much of the material is confusing and contradictory. This handy reference is sure to be a time saver for authors who want to make sure their Kindle editions look professionally crafted, not amateurish.
There is a mountain of technical information conveyed in this volume, but it's delivered in a clear, easy-to-understand manner that even technophobes should be comfortable with.
As a self-publishing author myself, I know from experience that unclear images in Kindle editions are an all-too-frequent gripe from readers. "Pictures on Kindle" will help keep such problems to a minimum.
Well, I know of people who SAY they know what they're doing regarding formatting and the use of images, but their sample finds them out. However, once I looked at your sample, I KNEW you got it. So, I posted it to my FB page, to my FB writer's group and sent the link to someone who I had just answered the formatting question.
But...you went much further with this.
Your insight regarding the use of Kindle Comic Creator was priceless. Thanks for giving REAL examples I could check out. I also like that you gave tips for both Mac and PCs.
So, even though I will probably still answer cursory graphic formatting questions, I will now have some place to point people to...and that is to your book.
Thanks for a great read. Anyone sitting on the fence about this book is insane. It is a steal at your current price and a no-brainer for any writer who puts graphics/images inside a book they're writing, which is to be read on Kindle.
By the way, I'm not new to graphics/web design. I have been doing graphics for web since the mid-1990s.
If you're using Word to prepare your manuscript for an eBook and you have images/photos or other graphics to be displayed within the contents, then you need this book by Aaron.
