big size 9 Mb

astrouit My ebook is over 300 pages and 9MB compiled!!.It has lots of pics and illustrations. It's a book about G Bouret (artist) with pics etc.  I can't reduce the pics (600).
I find it's very long to exec the book (from the CD) it takes 15 sec, it's too long.
If I do 2 books (or more) I can exec the second book from the first !! I have to make a menu which exec each book..It's very hard for the users ...
How can I do ?
PS sorry for my english but I'm french

EBookCompiler Have you checked you only have the necessary files in the ebook

Have you checked the image files are optimized as much as possible. Many GIFs are not compressed as much as they can be. In JPEG there are too parameters which affect the compression amounts. Try fiddling with this in paint programs

If you have lots of HTML files, try removing the white space etc.  Use an HTML compressor on a copy of your files, compile that

You can run one ebook from another using code like

<A HREF="##RUN('{app}\book2.exe')">Book 2</A>

This assumes that book2.exe is your 2nd ebook, and both EXes are in the same folder on the CD-ROM

rlemire Yes I believe Sunil Tanna is on the right track, For a project this size each chapter or group of pictures could be a separate eBook.

The first loading eBook could contain a menu system for loading each of the other eBook/chapters as required. Your reader wouldn't be aware separate eBooks were being loaded and shouldn't be confused by this system.
