Select the image type you want to use:

  • JPG
    Ideal for “real” images like photos. Due to the compression, this format saves space on disk and (download) time.
    Not the best choice for small text: high resolution and low compression rate are needed, which increases the file size
  • PNG
    Good choice for Javascript based books and text-centric content.
  • SWF Ideal for mz3Viewer and FLASH
    Excellent for small text; no visible pixels even at highest zoom step, the text is searchable and image size is small.

Once the file type is selected, the respective folder opens and the “pages” that should be used can be selected; in most cases, this will be “all”.
Accept the selection with the button.

The Assign Page Images To Pages window opens automatically.
All selected images are listed in the table, together with the detected/proposed page number that will be used for the image.
After a PDF conversion, the correct page/image number is known and added as image number to the file name.

This allows mz3Tool to assign the correct image number to the file; and with that the correct page number, which depends on the type of book (single or double-page book).

If all is OK start the creation of your book in clicking the button, which should be green and tell you the number of page images used. Only if not all Page Images are used or there are other problems detected, the button will be yellowish-green, yellow or red to give you a warning.

BUtton situation
All selected “n” Page Image will be used
More Page Images (of ‘n’) provided than Pages in the Book (use ‘n”)
only the reported number of images can be used;
Only “n” Page images can be used (e.g. page not empty, incorrect page #, …)
Calculated Page Numbers partially outside valid page number range
No valid Page Numbers found

The progress of the “Add Page Images to Pages” is shown in the status window:

Once all page images are placed on pages, the final book is shown in the preview area

Alternatively Thumbnails can be built using the command. Helpful in case you want to fresh-up old books with thumbnails.
You can configure if thumbnails will be shown in the book via the Settings – Configure Javasript Settings command and checking / unchecking the respective checkbox.:
