Keep in mind that any images you include within your ebook must be included within compilation.
If you're linking to a web page outside of your ebook, make sure you create a link that includes full path to website and will open page in a new window like this:
If you don't include "TARGET="blank" web page will open within your ebook.
Enhancing Your Ebook's Appearance
To enhance appearance of your ebook, include small images that compliment subject of your ebook. In addition, create small graphic page headers, subject dividers and bullets. By including these images, you will greatly enhance your ebook and provide a more enjoyable experience for your readers.
Try to avoid using animated or large, slow loading images, as these types of images can be very distracting and irritate your readers.
When designing your ebook, try to avoid using anything that requires a special plug-in, such as Flash. Although a dynamic presentation looks nice to those capable of viewing it, not everyone has those capabilities. Flash is very slow loading and can cause your readers to become frustrated when trying to load your ebook.
Creating an Icon
Many HTML ebook compilers are now enabling you to use your own ebook icon. This icon is an image that will be displayed on your clients' desktop. When clicked on, it will open your ebook.
In order to create an icon, you must have a special software program that will save your image with a .ico extension.
You can download a great software program called, "Icon Edit Pro" here: http://www.iconedit.com/
Before creating an icon, make sure you review your compilation software to make sure that you can include your own icon and to get their specifications.
