What if the image is floated right or left?
I once had occasion to do that, and it didn't hold up well on Look Inside, so I've never gone back to that particular well. I realize that you don't have that freedom!

I find that ebooking changes a writer's style in many ways, from shortening paragraphs to abjuring footnotes. The screen on most e-readers is so small that it's folly IMHO to do anything other than width=100% or maybe even width=60% and center the thang.

Some of these stylistic changes, esp the shorter paragraphs and banishing acknowledgements etc to the back of the book, are all to the good. When I build a paperback from an ebook, I do occasionally combine paragraphs (say to get rid of widows+orphans) but that's very rare. I've come to like multiple paragraphs on a page, not to mention the occasional two-line drop-cap (my paperback equivalent of a small-cap boldface intro to a new section).
