    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 !

    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.
