Tired of bad graphics in your books?

> Blurry covers with no small detail?

> Fuzzy maps?

> Horrible photos?

This book will show you the two different types of images: vector and raster [Illustrator/InDesign or Photoshop/GIMP/whatever]. You will learn what is required for print and for ebooks. You will see the different file formats required by each. And, finally, you will be shown what is required [or preferred] by the various self-pub suppliers.

The author has nearly 50 years experience both doing and teaching these materials. He began teaching digital publishing in 1991 using Word, PageMaker, QuarkXPress, and Photoshop [plus FreeHand & Illustrator]. He taught these things at a college level in the Business department at a large community college for nearly 20 years. You’ll learn what you need!

Many self-publishing authors are confused by the use of graphics in their books: print and ebook. many of you are using Word or Scrivener. Some are using more professional graphic solutions. This book explains the two basic types of images: vector and raster graphics [Illustrator/InDesign or Photoshop/Elements/GIMP/et al]. It briefly explains how to save the best quality images. And finally it covers what the various self-pub providers require [or strongly prefer] for graphics. It will answer your questions, or at least get you far enough along to ask me for details.

Who am I? I've been doing this stuff since 1967, and I've run a publishing house full-time since 2009. I've got 25 years in digital publishing—teaching it at the college level for nearly 20 of those years. I started with word and PageMaker, plus QuarkXPress in 1991. I wrote the first textbook for InDesign, starting in 1999.
