I have written my ebook (index, plus 7 pages) with Microsoft Word, saved them as Webpages. All is fine except that when saving pages 4, 5 and 7 as Web Pages, a separate folder is automatically opened for these particular pages containing the graphics. Then When I compile my ebook, the graphics do not appear on those pages 4,5 and 7, instead I have a little square with a red cross.
Can someone help me please, I have spent hours trying all sorts of tricks.
Thanks Peter for your reply, but it doesn't work. I open my word document, replace the graphics with new graphics that are in the same folder, save the word file, then save it again as web document, it insists in saving the graphics again in a separate folder. To try to be clever, I open that folder, copy the graphics again in the folder containing all my documents pertaining to that eBook (source file), once that particular alien file is empty, I delete it, but then, it also deletes my new web document. This hapens only to 3 specific pages. ???
John, Try, 1 Copying the graphics files and Word generated .htm files to a new folder. 2. Open the .htm files one by one with Explorer. On the tools bar select 'View' then 'Source' 3. Trace through the source files to find the image files. Lines something like <IMG SRC="Folder\Image94.gif" WIDTH=185 HEIGHT=50> 4. Remove 'Folder\' whatever to leave <IMG SRC="Image94.gif" WIDTH=185 HEIGHT=50> 5. Hopefully you will find it will then work. There may be a problem if you are using Word 2000 or later as this puts in a load of references which also need removing. If you have an old PC with Word 97 on it, you will find that much more user friendly. Keep trying, Regards, Peter
At this point, you'll have to copy and paste your text content and images into one of these programs, and gather up your images and rename them to something memorable. Then, you'll use the application tools to define your pages and place your images.
If you don't like the way Word converted your images, you can use a program like ThumbsPlus, or any of dozens of similar applications that will convert your images cleanly.
Images that contain fewer than 256 unique colors are saved as .gif files; those images with more colors, such as those with skintones or nature scenes, are best saved as .jpegs.
Thanks guys for your help, I have followed Peter East's advice, I have done one page, a bit of concentration needed, but it seems to work well. I have been quite busy so I have not had the time to do the other pages, but it should be okay, thanks again for your help.
Thanks Roger for your suggestions, I am very much intrigued about the fact that I could build up my eBook using a WYSIWYG program, which I already have as I build a lot of websites. I will definitely try that. Thanks very much.
