Converting Children’s Picture Books to ebooks (epub format) for iTunes
I’m testing out a way to deliver Smallfish Books to iTunes. First, I have to decide if a book can best be represented on the iPhone or iPad in portrait or landscape format.
Then, re-work the book in InDesign – probably expanding the book into more pages because the font will have to be quite large, so I’m guessing there’ll be only one sentence per ebook “page” (to make it work on the iPhone).
Next, export from InDesign to PDF, and then use some software to convert the PDF into epub format. The one I’m going to try first is simply called “PDF to EPub” -http://www.pdftoepub.com/. I’ll post again once I’ve got the first book sorted out.
