I'm a not very experienced user of Indesign CC so, apologies if this is a very basic question with a very easy fix. I tried searching for answers, but as someone who learned ID for a personal ebook project years after the last time I designed with Pagemaker 6.0 (really), I doubt I even have the terminology to search for this correctly.
That said, here's my issue. I laid out an e-book over the past few months and now have a file that looks and works very well as a PDF and a fixed layout epub. However, when I convert the epub file into a .azk format that can be used on Kindle for iOs devices, I get some weird shaded camera image on a few pages. You'll see in the screenshots below two examples of this happening.
Again, in other formats--.INDD; .PDF; .epub--this problem does not occur.
I used Indesign CC to design this book. I am on Windows 8.1 and used Kindle Previewer 2.94 to convert the .epub I made using InDesign into a .azk file.
Please let me know if you need more information to help me solve this problem. I can find my way around pretty well but don't know which settings you would want to know to list them here proactively.
Thank you for your help.
Not sure what's going on here. But I think you don't need to do the conversion to .azk file. You just upload the .mobi file to KDP and they take care of the .azk. Does it work OK as .mobi file?
I was creating to .azk as a test. It seems weird to put it up on Amazon as ready to go without a test. Am I missing something in that process?
I was advised once by KDP support to just upload the .mobi file and they take care of the .azk to deliver to customers with Android devices. Keep in mind, Kindle has apps for every platform. I've had good experiences with KDP support. If you still have doubts about your workflow you should contact them directly.
