We're aware of an issue with converting some DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF files to EPUB through our Ebook Wizard.

At this time, we're investigating the problem and looking for a solution.

If you've encountered this issue while converting your file, we suggest attempting to create and upload an EPUB directly to our system.

While there are a number of EPUB conversion options, Calibre (Download Here) has shown the best results for creating an EPUB for the Lulu system. Please review their extensive Help resources (Found Here) to create an EPUB 2 that our system can validate.

images fine in pdf proof but print abnormally - please help!

Please help!

I produced my book in word according to the template, inserted my images into the file and scaled them, uploaded it, and the pdf proof appeared fine. However, the images are all rotated through 90 degrees and are chopped up.

Really not sure what is going on.

Should i convert to pdf or do i need to 'lock' the images somehow to prevent this from happening?

Thanks ever so much in advance

    Make images In Line with Text in Word and print PDF with DoPDF before uploading.

    PS. Preview PDF first. And, if  you still have a mess, don't use any template. Take a regular word doc and prepare margins, spacing, numbers yourself, etc.

  • My best guess is that the images are 'landscape' when inserted, and our converter is shifting them to 'portrait.'

    Following EM's instructions should clear up the issue. The other option is to edit the images themselves, ensure they are 'portrait' orientation, and re-insert. Even if you do this, I would still follow EM's advice and prepare a PDF prior to uploading.
