Cannot convert illustrations to mobi

Following Harry's tutorial I created a book in BD, complete with illustrations (cut and paste). It looks fine when I have it in BD, but when I try and convert it, either within BD or import with MobiCreator, illustrations disappear. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Debra

When you make the book in Mobi Creator, do you get warnings about the illustrations not being found? I suspect that you have the illustrations in the wrong place - they need to be in the same folder as the HTML file for the book.

It might be that your illustrations are too big. Some implementations of the Mobipocket Reader can't handle images bigger than 63KiB.

True, but if you use Mobi Creator, it automatically reduces the "quality factor" of JPEGs to reduce them below 64k in size.

Harry, I just copied and pasted the pictures into the Book Designer in the correct places. Are you saying I should treat them like links, which you explained very well, by the way? Thanks, Debra

You're creating MobiPocket books, yes?

When you import a picture into BD, it creates its own copy of the file, and gives it a name which is a random number. When you exit BD, you'll find BD's copes of all the pictures in the "LastFile" folder. When you then export the BD book as HTML, it's BD's copies of the pictures in the "LastFile" folder that you need to copy, NOT your original illustrations.

Thanks, Harry. I followed your tutorial, even downloaded the right version of MP Creator (Professional, not Home), but I get errors for each of the illustrations. I will go back and try it again, but I am thinking maybe I don't really need illustrations Debra

A new option for MOBI creation is Calibre. This is still in beta test, but I found that the following works: a) export FB2 from BookDesigner, b) import (Add Books) FB2 into Calibre, c) Export MOBI (Convert Ebooks; Output: MOBI). The MOBI generation takes a while, and make sure you have the latest version of Calibre (0.4.131) because MOBI bugs are being fixed as they come up.

I don't know if FB2 is the best starting point, and there is no guide to Calibre MOBI creation, but this should get you an ebook with illustrations.
