Epub book covers in calibre
Can any one tell me if it is possible to stop calibre from adding white borders to the covers when it converts ebooks?
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I tried searching and couldn't find an answer.

You could use SVG image in the cover page such as;-
<svg width="100%" version="1.1" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" xmlns=
"http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="100%" viewBox="0 0 490 750" xmlns:xlink=
<image width="490" height="750" xlink:href="../images/img0001.jpg"></image>
the 490 and the 750 numbers are the size of the image you are using ..so change to match your image.
go into "convert E-Book" and add a image in the area marked "change cover image" .. that will change it, just in that one copy of Calibre you are running.
just drag and drop a image (and rename it cover.jpg) into the folder that holds the epub file.
