- A picture is worth a thousand words, we are told…and images do help to bring our words to life…and sometimes are invaluable in illustrating concepts.…Rule number one is if the images…are not your own creations, you must…get the written permission of the…copyright holder, and that may involve a fee.…It may not, but most likely it will…to use that image in your publication.…There are various royalty-free libraries around,…but do make sure that the license…terms permit the use in an EPUB.…
Similarly, check out the terms in anything…licensed under Creative Commons also,…because EPUB is sort of a special entity in many ways.…Rule number two in terms of using Word…is don't paste or drag images into your manuscript.…The reason is in the resulting EPUB…they need to be a linked asset,…and so you should create a folder…somewhere on your computer and put…the images you intend to use into that folder.…
