Reflowable to Fixed eBook of recipes

From Reflowable to Fixed-Layout ePub with Bells and Whistles

Lets add some animation and multimedia

We can add a few compleling details to our fixed-layout eBook. Animation and image sequences are useful additions.

We know that we can add multimedia (audio and video) to our reflowable eBooks, but in this screencast we add audio that is invoked when we click or touch an object.

If we are keen to add video, then we show how to change the poster image from another location within the video.

Note: The recipes and some content in this sample eBook work is NOT my own and I am only using for demonstration purposes.

From Reflowable to Fixed-Layout ePub

We did the reflowable recipe book, now lets look at the fixed-layout options.

We have already been through making a reflowable eBook; digital native, no intention to make a print version. This meant that we worked in InDesign on single pages, no spreads, and we set the pages up to simulate an iPad view of the finished eBook.

If we now want to consider the fixed-layout version, what are our options for this format?
