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.

text boxes around pictures

When I upload my pics to my ebook, they automatically are in a text box. If I delete the box, the picture is deleted, too. Someone told me to align it with text. That didn't work. Another said he made 2-column tables for his pics, but Lulu says no tables!


This shouldn't be so hard, so I must be missing something. If I have to I'll remove all pictures, but that will also require changing some verbiage in the first paragraphs.


If anyone can help, I'll really appreciate it.


  • How are you uploading your pictures?

    You need to use Insert Pictures, rather

    than any other method e.g. Copy + Paste.


    Pictures in ebooks cannot be aligned

    with text. That is, the text will be above

    and below the picture, it will not flow

    around it.

  • In your other post I gave you the link to Lulu's Guide on how to do it.
