We handle many illustrated and image-heavy files – in fact, digital galleys are perfect for such titles as they are beautifully rendered and significantly cheaper to produce than physical copies or even samplers. Please note the file-size restrictions.
Here are a few considerations for these types of files:
- We do not recommend the Kindle reading option for these types of titles.
- Be sure the files are in RGB (web) format/mode instead of CMYK (print). If images don't appear once they've been downloaded to Adobe Digital Editions, it's because they're still in CMYK (print) format/mode and not in RGB (web).
- For images to consistently show up online for all browsers and Adobe-supported devices, they need to be converted to RBG, JPG/GIF/PNG. They can be converted before the PDF is created or after the PDF is created, through AcrobatPro optimization for the web. Please see our optimization suggestions for details.
- For the web, 300dpi print quality image is displayed at 72dpi no matter what. If you don’t optimize images for the web yourselves, then some other application is deciding what to “throw out” to bring the image quality down to 72/96dpi, and it’s probably not as image-caring as Photoshop.
Little things like resizing images in Photoshop and sharpening them VS letting another app, even AcrobatPro, crunch an entire file will give much, much better results. Ideally, you should create a print version of your title and a web version.
