Adding Graphics using Mobi Creator
I have a word document with a few gif graphics and a cover picture. After having imported the document into the creator I click on build. Now sometimes it builds the document with the cover page and sometimes I have to update the cover page, but this is not a big deal. The other graphics however never get added to the finished document. The graphics are in the folder but are not included in the finished book.
What am I doing wrong??

Have you saved that Word file as a Webpage-filtered? (Word/SaveAs/Other/Webpage-filtered) When you do that your graphics will be found in a file named "Name of html file_files" That file is attached to your Webpage-filtered html text file. Upload the html file (and that image file comes along) to MobiPocket. If you have a cover image, go to "Cover" on the left side of your MobiPocket screen, and upload the cover there, remember to Update at the bottom of the Cover page. Your cover needs to have one side at least 800 pixels. I've found the perfect size for a Kindle cover is 600/800 or 600x900 pixels. If your other images are "gif" files, you might consider saving them as "jpg". Kindle works better with "jpg". In Word did you Insert/Picture to add your images? You can't copy/paste. Hope this helps. It took me the longest time to understand that the images file (NameofHTML_files) was glued to the hip of that HTML file and that I didn't have to do anything to get it to come along. In fact if you do anything (like try to put the text file into the image folder) it just doesn't work. So create it and forget it. I've never tried to upload a Word file to MobiPocket although some of my clients have (that's why they're my clients, they didn't get good results with the Word upload). I like the control of the HTML format for both Kindle and Epub.

You need to look at the HTML and see where the <IMG> tag is expecting to get the image from, and put the file in that location.
