Hi. I'm in the process of finishing up my recent novel, "Selling Steve Jobs' Liver: A Story of Startups, Innovation, and Connectivity in the Clouds" and have submitted it to the meatgrinder. This story takes place in a high tech milieu and I've integrated a PowerPoint preso into the narrative.
I saved the slides as individual png files and inserted them into my .doc file. There DPI is 96; size is 960 * 720 pixels per inch.
The file goes through the meatgrinder with no autovetter errors.
In the EPUB file created by the MG, the images are rather ragged looking and pixelated. I have attached a sample of the same epub slide and the mobi version. (Well, actually, I haven't as this seems to not be activated. I can send the screen shots if you want. As you'll see,the epub slide is clearly inferior in appearance. The overall formatting of the pages with these images is fine; it's the images that are the problem. When I generate a PDF off the .doc file it looks fine.
I also note my submitted cover is rather jaggy as well. The epub cover is a png file with a 72 * 72 DPI 1689 x 2229 Pixels (3.76 MPixels) (3:4).
Any insights into what's going on much appreciated!
