How can I make sure my images will print exactly as I want them to?

When you include illustrations, photographs and other images in your book, most times they will print correctly. There are a few things you can do to ensure the picture quality is what you expect.


  • If you are uploading images inside your own PDF, see PDF Creation Settings (How can I be sure my PDF will print correctly?).
  • Before uploading, print your source document and review how the images print.
  • If you are uploading a PDF, print the PDF and review how the images translated into the PDF.
  • After Lulu converts your file, you must view and approve the conversion. Click View, then use your browser's print function to print a review copy.

If you plan to upload your document for conversion to PDF, embed any separate images in your document before uploading. That is, save them with the document file. Do not include or link to them by reference. Not embedding images can produce undesirable printing results.
