Kindle PhotoWas looking into Kindle publishing at Amazon for a friend and discovered that it’s a real pain in the neck. Here’s a thread breaking down the basic “what do I have to do to my Word doc to make this thing work” questions. Also, forget about simply uploading your existing PDF files or anything with tables. Buh buh formatting. Here’s a thread listing all the formats that Kindle “supports.” Problem is, it really only supports HTML. They use a special page non-HTML break tag, which explains some things. Headers, footers, and page numbers need to be removed. The forums are chocked full of complaints about the lack of publishing tools, and I couldn’t agree more. What a mess.
