Question Creating an AZW3 ebook from .docx file

Hi,

Probably the most basic of questions and I've been trying to resolve it since yesterday.

The last time I looked at code was in the MySpace and Dreamweaver age. I really need some help.

I have images within an eBook which are on their own page (page break) and they need to take up the full screen.

I understand how width specification has been disabled through Kindle, so I assume I can only specify height.

I've found this so far which made sense to me https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=313795.

I added this code to my html file - image 1

I'm supposed to add something to the CSS file (image 2) but I'm looking at it and the code would go into block
8 but what do I input?

Thanks in advance

You've included the image twice in the body. Replace the entire body (from, and including, <body> to, and including, </body>) with

Code:
<body class="full-page-image">
  <div class="full-page-image">
    <img alt="Map" src="../images/00004.jpg" class="full-page-tall"/>
  </div>
</body>
and add the following the CSS file:

Code:
body.full-page-image { margin:0; padding:0; }
div.full-page-image { margin:0; padding:0; text-align:center; }
img.full-page-tall { margin:0; padding:0; height:100%; width:auto; max-width:100%; }

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I didn't expect such a quick reply. Much appreciated.

I added the code to the HTML file then the code to the CSS at block 13 (think this is the right point).

Calibre viewer is fine but Kindle previewer states source file is incomplete or corrupt.

Any further help be great.

Use Sigil to create an ePub that passes ePubCheck, and then use that as the input to Kindle Previewer.

Until you have complete and valid HTML/CSS, you'll continue to have problems.
