not actually produced ebooks but read/seen enough of them... Normally they look like they've been treated like a normal book then saved as pdf for conversion to required ebook format or left as a locked pdf. Only time it's different is if you have one of these fancy ones with video links etc
Hmm, it's all a little confusing and there doesn't seem to be very much documentation on anything. The main thing I'm worried about is device compatibility. I'm struggling to find any information on the process to make an ebook work with apple/amazon/windows, on different devices with different resolutions and screen sizes..
theres your problem... they don't.... apple has their ibook format, amazon has their kindle format and I think windows has their own too (they do support pdf in the win 8 'reader' app)... I'm pretty sure google has their own format too but they do support some others.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_e-book_formats - as you can see just a few options....but epub is the most widely supported, except by amazon lol
Yeah I know about the different platforms, I'm just wondering if it's acceptable to run everything through Calibre to output files suitable for each platform? Is that how it's done, generally speaking? Any idea how much you'd charge to make an ebook for a client?
