Blank pages in a book

I have a Word-Document with pictures (on each side one picture). When I save the doc into html-format and convert it to epub every second page of the book is blank.

How can I change this?

Ditch Word

What it appears that you are seeing, is the Pagebreak fir the Image getting doubled because something else is also triggering a pagebreak (file split point?)
When I see this, I just edit thoe out in Sigil, rather that spend hours fighting for precise conversion control.

Thanks for the answer.

Could you describe, what you exactly do with the html-document in Sgil?

Not really I do whatever it takes. There is no way to describe that.

I look at the code (on both sides of the pagebreak location) and make my choices. Note By look at the code, this may also result in looking at the style(sheet) for the code. Real easy in 7, right-class: Goto Link or style
I look at the Image (specs), THEY ALL HAVE TO FIT on the screen or you force a new page.

see, it is really a detective task with no magic bullet/stakes/decoder ring
