I'm almost ready to submit a new ebook, but having some trouble with a 'frontispiece' image. I have a bebook with Lbook v3 firmware, and don't have access to one with the bebook firmware (and don't won't to change back to it). The image size in the pc mobireader is MUCH larger than the image on my bebook. I think I read in one of the posts that the Lbook firmware decreases an image size by 1/2? Am I correct in equating image size in mobireader with that in non-Lbook firmware readers? If true, then this means that I if I aim for mobireader audience and presumably the bebook firmware then the image is too small for the Lbook audience; likewise if I size it for Lbook, then it overlaps two pages in mobireader and (I suppose) in a bebook with bebook firmware.

Have others run into this problem? Does anyone know if there any way to correctly size an image in html code for a .prc that is satisfactory for both firmwares? If not, perhaps it's best to aim for the non-Lbook reader?

I tried a few MOBI ebooks under Lbook "Update of 27 February 2009" Firmware (http://www.lbook.com.ua/en/downloads/firmwarev3) and did not see any problems. Most of the cover images I tried where 510 wide by 680 tall, which seemed to show up full size on the Hanlin V3. MobiPocket recommends 600x800, but I have not seem many cover pages that large.

You should probably resize the image using image manipulation software.

See http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/article.asp?BaseFolder=prcgen&File=images.htm on the Mobipocket development site.
