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.

We've also created this Forum Thread. Post questions here and we'll do our best to respond and assist.

We’re bringing the site down for maintenance tonight.
Lulu.com, Lulu xPress, and Lulu Jr. will go offline at 12:01 AM on Thursday, October 25. We expect this maintenance to last about six (6) hours, until 06:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. (05:01 AM to 11:00 AM in London and 02:01 PM to 8:00 PM in Sydney, Australia).

We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you plan accordingly.

Sizing of Cover images

I am a complete newcomer to Lulu.  I am trying to insert an image into the cover.  I have sized the image to reflect the size constraints given in the template at 300dpi but on dragging it across the image expands so that the vertical extremities exceed the space.  How can I get the image to remain the size that I have set?

    It should not happen. What is the size of your image in pixels and the size of the box you are placing the image into, in pixels?
