Set of jpg to ePub3 fixed layout

Hi all,

I have several sets of pictures in *.jpg format that I would like to batch convert to ePub3 fixed layout ebooks for use on iDevices with iBooks.

So far, the following solutions are not ideal IMO:

- Convert the set of pics to a pdf file: well it cannot be tagged via iTunes, actually metadata are not writen in the file, and so lost if you re-load the pdf files in iTunes.

- Convert the set of pics to ePub2 via Calibre: because this format does not handle fixed layout, pics are getting resized, wether I would like to retain original full resolution quality.

- Use iBooks Author: I understand I cannot make a standard ePub doc that way (but an Apple proprietary format).

Hope some of you guys can advise me ,
Thanx much !

Have you figured this out??

Hey pal,

I've been spending most of the day trying to figure this out (trying to create an epub wedding album) Looks like I need to write an xhtml file.

Did you find a program or method to achieve the full bleed across the centre margin without doing this? http://www.ehow.com/how_10002788_cre...ull-bleed.html

Thanks,

Trevor

Hi Trevor,

Sorry for so late answer, and sad one .

Nope, I still did not find a way to convert a bunch of pics to ePub3 fixed layout ebooks in simple way, ie. without the need to "manually" write an xhtml file.

Actually the format being quite mature now, I got some doubdts this will occur anytime soon.
Well, seems it does not rise enough interest.
