Image size issues

Hi Guys,

I'm putting together a picture book and am having some sizing problems.

I'm laying out with InDesign then exporting as ePub > Sigil > Calibre > Mobi.

My problem is the sizing of the pics. I'm using 600px x 800px images at 72dpi but when I open the ePub file in Sigil the images are actually quite small. And once the file is opened on my Kindle Fire the images seem even smaller.

Can anyone offer me any suggestions to what it is I may be doing wrong?


Cheers

Possibly... In calibre, check the output profile is set to tablet in conversion settings - this doesn't resize images.

All good, Toxaris. I decided to just manually add the html to Sigil.

Works now.
