To keep file sizes low images should be saved in jpeg (JPG) format at the exact size you want them to appear in your eBook or StoryCube at a resolution of 150dpi and no more than 300dpi. If you are using the online content editor your images need to be online before they can be added to bookleteer. We suggest uploading them to flickr.com.

When using the content editor, currently the only way to tell where page breaks will be is to generate your eBook and view the PDF.
However, you can force page breaks in by using the 'Insert Page Break' button.
If you need more control over your layout we suggest you use the bookleteer templates.
Your images need to be online to be added to the online content editor. We suggest uploading them to flickr.com. Once they are online, in the bookleteer online content editor click on the tree icon in the toolbar and enter the location of your image. Click 'insert'.
There are variations in how content is formatted for these two different paper sizes. We prefer to generate both as you never know who is reading your book and which paper size they prefer.
Ledger is the US equivalent to the European A3 sheet size. By generating both your eBook can be printed out and made up by people no matter which paper size they prefer,
The page refreshes and a message appears at the top of the page with links to the files.
The files will be placed in your default download folder on your computer.
We've prepared videos to show how to turn your pages in eBooks. There is one video for each style of eBook. You can watch them at vimeo.com/channels/bookleteer/
Upload 6 images if you want a single-sided StoryCube or 12 images if you want to have a double-sided StoryCube.
Single-sided cubes display 6 images and the reverse (inside) of the cube is blank.
Double-sided cubes have images on both sides so you can make up the cube to display either the inside or the outside.
Print one side then turn the paper over and put it through the printer again to print the second side.
