Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Anchoring images, part of InDesign CC: EPUB Fundamentals.
…There are actually a whole lot of books that have no…images in them, I was just looking through my own collection of…e-books on my Ipad, plenty of what's of female science fiction…books and novels, that have no images other than the cover image.…But I would guess that a lot of us want to create e-Books and have images in them.…Or other kind of interesting things happening…within the text flow like pull quotes or…side bars and so on.…And there's a special kind of thing that you need to do with your images,…in order to get them to appear in the place that you want, in the e-Pub.…
So let's take a look at that in this video.…What are we looking at?…What kind of document do I have open?…I open up the Pages panel, it's kind…of a little longish document, but it's all text.…It's from a publication called A brief history of San Francisco.…So far…there are no images.…There is an image out here in the pasteboard.…But as you know by now, of course, because you've been paying attention.…Files on the paste board are not included when you export to e-pub.…
