Export to HTML or EPUB

Post by greenmorpher » 2011-05-23 02:14:07

In both cases, the only images that appear in the document when viewed in an appropriate reader (Firefox and iCab for HTML; Calibre for EPUB) are inline images.

In exporting to HTML, images linked to paragraphs wand with text flowing around them were exported to an images folder, but there was no HTML to bring them into the document and flow the txt around them.

Is this how it is meant to be? I have no information about EPUB, but it would seem to me that the HTML to place the pictures correctly and flow the text around them would not be too difficult to produce. Would it be so difficult to include in the exporter?

Cheers, geoff

from my experience, rendering images to html only works if they are either inline with text or embedded in tables… but the latter option yields very unsatisfactory results since tables are not rendered so they honor the original layout; and it's a shame the original images are systematically down-sampled...

Looks like it. Downsampling should be an option. I prepare images in Canvas which provides excellent tools for sizing and outputting optimum images.
