Have any of you converted books for use on Kindle, and if so, how did you do it, and did it go smoothly? Please explain in "dummies" terms, as I find this topic to be very confusing.
If I convert files to ePub format in Ind. CS5, is this all I need to do to convert it to a format that can be used on a Kindle reader? Would this work for graphics as well as text?
Internet searches about this gave info for an older version, CS4, and seemed to require using supplemental software to successfully convert to Kindle format.
Thanks for any advice.
Yes, going to EPUB and then Kindle seems to be the best route.
A few suggestions.
1. Upgrade to CS6. EPUB capabilities have been dramatically improved.
3. Visit Liz’s blog: http://www.pigsgourdsandwikis.com/
4. Check out Ann Marie Concepcion’s excellent Lynda.com titles. This link will get you a one week trial: http://bit.ly/fcGpiI
Finally, you need to get at least a beginner’s grasp of HTML and CSS. Without that, quite frankly, you’re screwed.
Bob's suggestions are good. Both Liz and Anne-Marie cover issues when moving from EPUB to Kindle. Anne-Marie recommends the Kindle Previewer (available free from Amazon.com) to convert your EPUB to Kindle AFTER you have prepared them in the way the Liz and Anne-Marie suggest. I found it very easy.
