Adding image files

Our template comes with four folders for images, which correspond to output formats: print-pdf, screen-pdf, web, epub and app.

Images files must be saved there. Each folder should contain the same set of images, saved appropriately for each format. For instance, while their file names must be identical, web images might be full-colour, 96dpi, and up to 800 pixels wide; while print-pdf images might be in greyscale, 300dpi and 2400 pixels wide.

This can be a lot of work! So it’s best to store large master versions of your images in the images/_source folder for each book and then automate their conversion to the output format folders.
