Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video KindleGen, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…KindleGen is Amazon's officially supported tool…for converting files to the kindle format.…It probably won't surprise you too much that they recommend…it's use, with it being their own software and all.…But it does support all of the newer KF8 functionality.…And it can generate a single file that supports both KF8 and MOBI formats.…It supports multiple source formats, including HTML, XHTML, and EPUB.…It's available for any Intel Mac running OSX, 10.5 or later.…
It's also available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.…And it's available for Linux 2.6, as well.…It's a command line tool, which means it doesn't have a GUI,…or a graphical user interface, or sometimes referred to as a, gui.…Which means that you have to type code, or prompts as…they're called, that are executed by the application to perform its functions.…We'll be looking at, using it in the final publishing to Amazon chapter.…
But you may want to download that when you have a spare minute or…two, and have a look at the Readme file and so on inside there.…
