Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Images, colors, and Kindles, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- We have three more considerations to make…when we're talking about using images in EPUB.…The first of those is colors.…What I'm actually going to look at here…is something called a color model.…Two main things, I'm talking about full color,…just for the moment.…There are two main color models…that you're likely to find images in.…The first of those is CMYK, which is a format…for printing with ink, essentially.…
It is not suitable for EPUB at all.…Fortunately, quite a lot of images,…such as those from your camera,…are made in the alternate model, which is RGB.…That is what we want for EPUB.…If you've been given images that have already been converted…to CMYK for print purposes, you can convert them back…to RGB, but just be aware that…all of the really bright, saturated colors…that that model holds will have…already been lost in that conversion.…
But if that's all you've got,…then you will just have to use that.…Ideally, if you've got an RGB source original,…that would be the best file to use,…and you'll get deeper, more saturated colors,…
