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.

Total File-Size for Projects:
The total file-size for a Lulu project cannot exceed 1 GB. This is a problem, because when you download the USLetter.zip template file, as I have, the files within them, 8.5x11_Back_EN.png and 8.5x11_Front_EN.png, result in 35 MB per page for images placed over those templates. So I opened 8.5x11_Front_EN.png. Then I opened as layers all the odd-numbered pages and overlayed them on top of that template. When I went to save each layer individually as a png, the resulting files were 35 MBs each. There are unattractive ways around that: I could save it as a jpg, losing detail and pixels. I could use compression for my ongs. That would also lose details and pixels. And, I could not save the gamma for each image. That is equivalent to saving the image without alpha data. Or, I could change my images from 300 ppi, which is certainly a no-no for print images. Long story short, LuLu should not provide a template, that when used forces tha client to either lose quality for thier book, or be in violation of the 1 GB limit.
