Kindle Formatting: Requirements for the Kindle Book Cover Image

Cheap Auralex PROJ2CHA/BUR Project2 Roominator – You have prepared your manuscript and are ready to e-publish. Now you need to know how to prepare your book images and upload your Kindle book cover to the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing system. There are two covers you will need: the Product Cover and the Internal eBook Cover. The best file format is JPG, which is acceptable for publishing both the product and internal cover image.

NOTE:
I will be talking about the Product display and internal cover only. (not book covers for print)

Formatting Images Inside Your Kindle Book

Kindle Direct Publishing will convert your images and text for upload to the Amazon Kindle Store as well as display on Kindles and other supported devices. Kindle Direct Publishing can process your book covers in the following formats:

•GIF (or.gif)
•PNG (or.png)
•BMP (or.bmp)
•JPEG (or.jpeg)

NOTE: Images will appear in color ONLY on the Kindle Fire device. All other Kindle devices will display black and white.

Internal Book Cover

The best formats to use for the internal Kindle e-book cover is a JPG or GIF image, 127 KB* size at 300 dpi. This will provide enough clarity for images, particularly for large images, or content with gradient patterns. But you also don’t want the e-book file size to become too large.

5 Reasons To Publish a Kindle eBook On Amazon

Discount Winn Leather Attache Briefcase – It has never been easier for writers to publish their books than today.

As a writer yourself, all you have to do is visit Amazon’s Kindle platform, to easily write and publish your potential bestseller Kindle eBook.

Besides being so easy to use, there are a lot more other reasons that make it worth publishing a Kindle eBook on Amazon.com.

1. Publishing your Kindle eBook is easy. You just have to write your book in Microsoft Word or any other word processor and follow the few steps mentioned in Amazon’s Help files.

Depending on your skills and the speed of the computer you use, the formatting of your book can be completed in half an hour.

2.
It is difficult getting contracts signed with traditional publishers, and also difficult getting your book published through them.

Moreover, with margins dropping in the industry, you have to be careful signing contracts with companies that may soon shut shop.

If you get involved with such a publisher and the company collapses, it may take years before you can actually publish your book elsewhere.

If you publish your Kindle book on Amazon.com, this is not something you will have to worry about. There are no contracts to sign (other than Amazon’s Terms of Agreement), and there is no chance of Amazon winding up their operations for many years to come.

3.
The greatest benefit of printing eBooks is that people can read them using any digital device, not only a Kindle. As long as you use Amazon’s apps, the eBook can be read on iPhones, iPads and your desktop computer.

Kindle Secrets – How to Make Money With Kindle

Cheap Mercury 240 Sport PVC – If you are an honest-to-goodness fiction or non-fiction author, you can make money with Kindle. Amazon reported that in the month of December 2011 alone, more than 1,000,000 Kindles were selling each week. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Anyone that owns a computer, Mac or PC, a tablet, a smartphone or some other electronic device capable of attaching to the Internet, can order e-books from Amazon without having a Kindle.

Kindle
Publishing

Publishing
on Kindle is open to most anyone, as long as you follow the rules. To make money with Kindle, you’ve got to know your market, price your books within their range and market your books. None of that is hard, but it takes some research and some dedicated work on your part.

Follow the Rules

Kindle does not allow affiliate links in books. If you put these links in your books, your books will be pulled. Now many people think that they can just put “crap” up on Kindle and sell it. While you may sell a few crappy items, pretty soon that will not work. The reason? People aren’t stupid. They don’t want to be “sold” to — if you give your readership what it wants, you will never lose. Provide honest solutions to their problems through a self-help or how-to book, or find a way to entertain them with your fiction. This is a legitimate business endeavor and must be treated as such.

Quality

Provide quality books to your readers. Documents rife with errors will turn off your readers. The whole point of providing people things to read, is to provide them with quality workmanship, valuable information – if you’re providing them a self-help or how-to kind of book. Give them great entertainment if you are writing fiction.

Preserve Your Scuba Diving Memories With A Waterproof Video Camera

Cheap 6 Pack of Professional -
When you are scuba diving, regardless of where you are, you will almost certainly see some incredible sights while underwater. The lakes and oceans around the world are literally filled with beautiful and spectacular wildlife. Not only that, but there are literally thousands of shipwrecks and archaeological sites to explore, many of which are still undiscovered.

The sport of scuba diving is so exciting, you could never see everything there is to see or get tired of this exciting sport.

There’s no doubt about it, the memories you make during your dives are nothing short of spectacular. But what if you want to share your experiences with family and friends who weren’t there? You could probably describe it to them, but does this really do the experience justice?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just show them a video of what you saw? If so, a waterproof video camera is something you definitely want to add to your scuba gear.

Waterproof video cameras are very similar to regular video cameras insofar as they are available with many different formats, configurations, and costs. You can get a great model, for example, that records in high definition (1080P, 5.0 mega pixels). And the goods news is that you don’t have to get a second mortgage on the house to buy one. Kodak makes a model, for example, that retails for $119 that is waterproof to a depth of 10 feet. Although this isn’t very deep, it is still perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Another option is to get a video camera that is already mounted to your scuba diving mask. The company, Liquid Image, makes just such a dive mask/video camera combination. This unit retails for $249, is waterproof to a depth of 130 feet, records in 5.0 mega pixel 720P high definition, and comes with 8GB of common SDHC memory.

Don’t let those incredible underwater aquatic memories fade away. Record your scuba diving adventures with a waterproof video camera and save them forever.

Perfect All-Around Underwater Digital Cameras – Canon EOS 5D

Buy – Lincoln Electric Precision – Scuba diving is just not complete without the use of underwater digital cameras. Try to imagine scuba diving in the vast blue seas with all its mystical creatures and rare marine life forms with nothing to capture that “once in a lifetime” experience. If you are new to scuba diving then you would most probably agree that the ocean, with all its creatures and coral life, is simply breathtaking especially when discovering and experiencing it for the first time. Despite seeming a bit strange at first sight, you will start to realize just how peaceful and relaxing the ocean really is after doing a few more dives. However, nothing beats actually getting something to remember out of all those dives because who knows what new experiences will take place on every new dive? The obvious solution to all this is to get your very own dive camera, and most divers recommend and go with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

Shopping for your Camera

To begin with, searching for your first dive camera can be a bit daunting with all these high prices and technical jargons being repeated in every store you enter. However, searching for top quality underwater digital cameras with a reasonable price should be your main priority and the Canon EOS 5D, when combined with its underwater Ikelite Housing, is the ideal camera that provides all those required dive camera features. The best thing for you to do at this point in time is to search for a really good Canon 5D review online to see what all it is worth so that you know you are not being ripped off when actually buying one.

Camera Advancement

It is without a doubt that technology is advancing more rapidly in time with everything and pays no exception to underwater digital cameras as well. With each passing year, camera manufacturers seem to put out something more attractive to catch our attention. The Canon EOS 5D Mark II was and continues to be the golden standard of all dive camera and standard camera technologies. Canon has outdone itself with all the amazing features it fabricated into the Mark II, from cutting edge technology in picture quality and accuracy to advanced interface and menus which are effective yet simple so it’s easy to understand. Since its release in September of 2008, the much anticipated Canon EOS 5D Mark II continues to live up to its name as a must-have upgrade especially for great picture pixel quality.

The Best Nikon SLR Digital Cameras This Year

Cheap DiskStation DS3611 NAS -
Considering you can spend between $400 and $3500 for a good Nikon SLR camera these days, it would behoove, any potential buyer to do their homework, and understand what they are getting. There are obviously quite a few differences between the bottom of the Nikon SLR line D40, and the top of the line D3, currently selling in the mid 3K price range. I’m obviously only referring only to the realm of digital cameras here. So, if your looking for film only camera gems like the Nikon F2, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Two of the biggest determining factors in the price of the digital SLRs from Nikon (or any camera manufacturer), are lens quality and image sensor size. Pretty much everyone is familiar with what a lens is, but image sensor is perhaps not so obvious. An image sensor is inside the camera, and replaces the film of old school cameras. Larger image sensors collect more light, dynamic range, and will result in less image noise. Don’t confuse image sensor size with megapixels, as they are two completely different specifications. A 10 megapixel compact camera may have a 7.19mm x5.27mm image sensor, while a 10 megapixel SLR camera may have a 28.7mm x 17.8mm image sensor. The SLR will obviously take a better picture.

Camera lenses are much more tangible, and we can at least, quite literally get a feel for them. A well constructed heavy lens, is simply going to feel better than a cheap light, plastic lens. While weight is obviously not the main factor to be considered here, you can get a good feel for the lens you’ll be buying, and how it works by holding it.

The biggest factor in good pictures, however, has nothing to do with the camera, and everything to do with the person holding the camera. You! It’s good to look around, do your research, and see what cameras are out there before making your actual purchase.

Getting the perfect camera, is never an easy thing, especially with the way digital technology is constantly changing. Fortunately, there are plenty of helpful websites online, that can narrow down your search and help you find the camera with all the features important to you.

Sony HTSS360 Blu-ray Disc Player Home Theater System Review

Buy Stagg Alto Saxophone withWhile home theater systems have been around for quite some time, Blu-ray disc capable home theater systems few and far in between. For the most part, this means that anyone wanting to watch full HD video on their home theater system have to get a separate Blu-ray disc player. For the user who is starting from scratch, its nice to have the option of getting a system than can play everything without having to search for the Blu-ray player that jives with the home theater system of your choice. For this reason, Sony have come up with the Sony HTSS360 Blu-ray Disc Player Home Theater System that consists of an AV receiver with three HDMI inputs and a 5.1 speaker system.

The Sony HTSS360 has four identical speakers (the front and surround speakers), as well as a tiny center channel and a sub-woofer. The front/surround speakers are encased in plastic with each speaker housing a single 2.6-inch cone driver. The center channel is even more compact than the speakers while the sub-woofer is passive in that it is un-powered with no built-in amp. This means that the system has a very small footprint in comparison to other home theater systems and should fit any room quite well.

Even the AV receiver has been made compact, complete with a stylish silver finish that would blend in well with most decors. The front panel has almost no controls except for the power button, input selection button and the huge volume knob on the right. The Sony HTSS360′s remote is the standard Sony remote but thankfully it comes with bass and treble controls as well.

While the Sony HTSS360 comes with an automatic speaker calibration feature, you can also do your own manual tweaking. The set comes with an auto-setup microphone, which plugs into the back of the unit. The set also has a DCAC (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration) system that adjusts the volume level of each speaker and the sub-woofer, measuring the distance between each speaker and the user’s listening position.

On top of the three HDMI inputs, the Sony HTSS360 is equipped with 3 analog audio inputs and 3 digital audio inputs; 2 optical and 1 coaxial. It also has Sony’s Digital Media Port and comes equipped with Dolby and DTS sound decoding modes, including Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, and DTS. While there is no built-in support for satellite radio or HD radio, the Sony HTSS360 does offer both AM and FM tuners.

Sony DAV-X1V – The Real Deal Sony Home Theater

Discount Maytag MMV5208WQ 2.0 cu. – Ideal for minimal aesthetic tastes, the Sony DAV-X1V is a Sony Home Theater for those who loath wire clutter, as well as a speaker system made of a large number of speakers which actually add clutter in a room. Designed to handle increased compression values in sound systems, the Sony DAV-X1V Sony Home Theater sports out a lifestyle-friendly design, within a compact home theater system.

This particular Sony home theater system is a 2.1 channel surround sound speaker set, made of one subwoofer and two satellite speakers, which are anchored to a main unit which houses the Sony home theater’s disc player and audio/video receiver. High-gloss black side panels and aluminum skin give the Sony DAV-X1V’s main unit an attractive look. It comes with an artistically curved front panel, with a minimal number of buttons, making the Sony home theater equipment an ideally user friendly home theater system.

Sizing 3.63 x 16.38 x 12.88 inches, the main unit is smaller than most audio/video receivers. The speakers which are just 3 inches by 7.25 inches wide are also smaller than most speakers. But this doesn’t compromise the surround sound quality this Sony home theater boasts, as its performance degree rivals that of a 5.1 channel surround sound speaker system, using Sony’s S-Forge Pro 2.1 digital sound signal processing.

The S-Forge Pro 2.1 system enables two speakers to synthesize a surround sound field, making it as effective as a 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound channel setup. The DAV-X1V Sony Home Theater system also boasts a 5 disc changer which could handle data type media. Jpegs, mp3 compressed audio as well as DivX encoded video files are fair game to the DAV-X1V Sony Home Theater System.

The DAV-X1V Sony Home Theater System comes with two cast metal table stands for its two speakers. An optional WS-FVX1 floor stand could be added to the package, for those who decide to put their speakers up rather than by the floor on any room.
