Let FCI Digital convert your files to eBook format!
Converting your book to an eBook format allows you to implement interactive features not available in physical media. Embeddable videos, linkable indices, adjustable font size, and the ability to search text are just a few of the benefits of eBooks.
eBook Conversion Types
FCI Digital offers three unique eBook formats:
Reflowable ePubs: This type of file has reflowable text, meaning the reader can increase/decrease the zoom and display size to their liking. Here the layout of each page does not stay intact as the device automatically adjusts the file when it is changed. This file is more of a universal file. Most devices can read Reflowable ePubs. Many designers and authors prefer to keep their eBook layout the exact same as printed book and prefer the next format.
Fixed Layout ePubs: this type of file is limited to the devices that it will read or open on certain devices. You can upload an ePub file to Apple & Google Play, and then Amazon has their own type of fixed layouts for their Kindle Fire devices, called a KF8. This type of file, the pages stay intact and lay exactly like the printed book. You are not able to increase/decrease the font, but you can pinch and zoom to see the font in a larger view. This type of file is more complex and more expensive.
WebPDFs: This is an enhanced version of a standard PDF file that can utilize hyperlinked tables of contents, online references, and indices.
