My question is. How do I convert a mpg file to a DVD ISO file? Createspace requests that film projects be unencrypted DVD ISO files.

Cover Creator

Posted by JammyDodger Jan 31, 2017

As a new entrant to self publishing I recently used Cover Creator for a book of short stories. On receiving a printed copy of the proof I found that the back cover copy was difficult to read due to the small font used. Is it possible to change the font size? Any suggestions would be most welcome,

6 x 9 Book in Adobe indesign

Posted by only613 Dec 11, 2016


I am in the process of creating a 6" x 9" book to be printed via createspace. I created a .25 inch bleed all around. I have 2 questions:

1. I know the text needs to be inside the live area. Can I put the page numbers in between the live area and trip area, or will that be rejected by createspace?

2. I am going to be including advertisements in my book. What dimension advertisements should I tell them to prepare? Should they include a bleed?


Thanks very much in advance for your help!

I will be submitted a book that is 8.5" x 8.5" as individual pages and so need to know if you want the bleed to just be on the 3 outside edges and not into the gutter? I'm using InDesign. Thanks,

I am still very new to this. Would like to create double page original illustrations / text for a children's book, then PDF and split into two pages, and finally upload to CR as two 6x9 pages.

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and am not sure how to go about this. Planning to us ipad pro apps such as paper or procreate.  Can someone kindly help explain the step by step pdf process? Again, would like to start the drawings as double pages, then split the file in the middle in the pdf process. Thanks so much in advance,


kind regards,

Registration issues

Posted by DonNiagaraFalls Sep 13, 2016

I am new to CreateSpace, and just set up a book for the first time. The page proof copy arrived yesterday and I noticed that the 'registration' is a little off: the text on the even numbered pages is printed a little bit lower on the page than the text on the odd numbered pages. If you hold a page up to the light, the front and back should be aligned perfectly (they are in my original PDF file), but on the proof copy they are out of alignment.


Is this just an artifact of a quicky proof printing? Will the problem disappear when copies of the real book are printed? Anyone have this problem before?


Thanks for any help -- I'm a little anxious about going ahead not knowing if the final product is going to be a little off!

I am working on a memorial cookbook that will probably be include around 50 recipes, a few blogs from onlines and photos (already exist). I have been trying to use Word 2008 for Mac in the Publishing View to create a template that I like and can then easily change for each recipe. However, I have not been able to figure out how to do this. Now I am wondering if I need different software for my project or if, for a beginer like me, I would be better off using a service like Blurb? I do want to keep the cookbook affordable and would like to use proceeds to create a scholarship fund for my friend's young son. Any input would be greatly appriciated. Thanks!!!!

Greetings my lovely and handsome readers <3


It has been a one month though yet no one is paying money for the book yet everyone is keen to get my book for free and it is selling well for free though I am upset that readers are not willing to spend money for the books I have a feeling that  It Is mostly Because of  author SELLING THEIR BOOKS FOR FREE WHICH IS AVAILABLE IN MAJORITY so obviously readers won't go for books which they have to pay ( most readers may be like that) this free scheme must be eliminated ( I feel kinda such way ) I wonder whether others feels this too or not?


HOPE miracle occur to my sales graph after this <3 <3 <3



good day ;-)

You may notice that there is a white "CC" box near the bottom right corner of some YouTube videos. It will appear on the video while clicking on it&#65292;but the subtitle is independent. To download subtitles from YouTube, you are eager to find out the solutions. Here I will illustrate the YouTube subtitle downloader for you.



1. is the easiest way to download YouTube subtitles. All you need is the link of the video owns subtitles/closed captions. Paste the link to the input area, and click "Download".



2. is not only an acclaimed YouTube video downloading site, but also enables you to download YouTube cc or download YouTube captions. It is used the same as DownSub.



3. Unlike the two web applications, Google2SRT is a simple java-based desktop YouTube subtitle downloader for YouTube subtitles download. Make sure your system has Java version 1.6 or higher installed.

How to Split Videos Easily

Posted by Fonixeine Jun 3, 2016

Sometimes, you just only need to do a simple editing, such as split video, rotate video, merge video and so forth. So here comes this tutorial about how to split video with 3 simple ways.



1.Split Video Online

Online Video Cutter, an acclaimed free online video cutter must be your ideal choice.



2.Split Video with VLC Media Player

As a powerful and top rated media player, VLC media player also owns the ability to split video with advanced recording feature. However, VLC is not the right video splitter if you need fine tuning control or more precision in cutting. And you have to let the video play while splitting. So, it will take you more time to get the job done if you have a long video to split.



3.Split Video with 3rd Party Software

If the the both methods above are not for you, just search video splitter in Google. You can try 3rd party software as recommended on the web.

Well, WTV stands for Windows Recorded TV Show. It is a proprietary video and audio file container format, used for storing TV content recorded by Windows Media Center. So it's not as popular as the common media file formats like MP4, AVI, and MKV. It may be not supported by some players or devices while playing. In this case, you can search WTV converter via goolge. Most software usually has the similar operating steps as follows:


After downloading and installing the WTV converter, run it and import your .wtv files. Choose the format you want convert (e.g. convert wtv to mp4 or wtv to avi). And start this wtv conversion after all done above. Although there are various video converting software throughout the web, just go through the main steps to do this job.

The HTML 5 Format

Posted by WillardEden May 16, 2016

The html 5 format is quite interesting, not many people know it, but we need to use it to play video in many browers, like Opera, Firefox, etc and the html5 video format becomes important when we try to upload video in such format. Before HTML5, no standard for showing videos on webpage at all.
