Fifobooks Composer: a simple way to create your own illustrated e-book

We've created a "labs" site, where we can test new features before they're formally released.

First up is Composer: http://labs.fifobooks.com/Composer, an automated tool for creating illustrated books like comics or graphic novels/manga.

All you need is a stack of images (png, gif, jpg) -- upload them, set the page sequence, and (optionally) define chapters.

Composer does the rest, and produces a file in e-book format (either .epub or .cbz).

We think the potential for all-illustrated e-books is huge, not only because of how good they look in color on the iPad, but also because of Apple's arbitrary censorship in their book store: http://www.siliconera.com/2010/05/08...ted-by-itunes/

Note, too, that you can even turn your own photo albums into e-books, if you're so inclined, since Composer doesn't care what kind of images it parses.

We would love to get everyone's feedback on Composer; please feel free to leave a comment or question here, or you can reach us anonymously via our contact page: https://www.fifobooks.com/Contact
