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