I export my book as a Reflowable ePub (version 2) but the images that are supposed to fill the whole page only appear as little thumbnails in the top left hand corner.... does anyone know how I can control image sizes within reflowable ePubs?

Hi all. Thanks for your comments. I managed to resolve this by simply selecting 'Relative to Text Flow' within the Object section when exporting an ePub. It seems to work quite well so far!

Thanks for your comment. I'm using Kindle Previewer and Calibre to preview my ePubs.

Check whether your images are contained in a block container (p, div, etc.) set to text-align: center; and that the images themselves have a width of 100% assigned (which will force Kindle to display the images full sized on a separate page). That works fine on Kindle and other readers (although Calibre insists on non-proportional scaling of the entire image.

 

If you want a simple reflowable image which flows with the rest of the text on Kindle, remove the width property on the images.

 

Basically, stick to the simplest css you can for reflowable epubs. Allow the reader to do the display work for you.
