Save a life (maybe)! Help me with photo formatting issue, please?
For the sake of the person/people who may be hurt when my computer goes out of the window, could anyone help me resolve an issue with photographs, please?
I'm producing a pocketbook-sized book. It's mainly text but includes a handful of photographs.
I've used the Lulu template/style guide in Word. I've made a few modifications - different-sized fonts for chapters, that sort of thing - but nothing major.
In Word the manuscript looks fine, but when it gets converted in Lulu, some of the pictures are either behind or in front of the text.
All the pictures are from the same source, all have been handled in the same way, most are around the same size. All have the same settings with regard to text wrapping and position, yet somehow, after the manuscript has been converted, some appear correctly, while others are merged with the text. I've tried changing the wordwrap and position settings and it seems to make no difference. This happens with both .doc and .docx files.
I'm used to uploading content onto websites, so I do have some knowledge about formatting stuff - hidden characters and instructions, that kind of thing - but if something like that is happening here, I can't work out what the issue is.
Can anyone help, please? I've spent several hours playing with the text and pictures and getting nowhere, so I am getting rather cross now.
Thanks to anyone who can help!
