Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

I created it in OpenOffice, and exported as PDF. I am on a different PC right now, but I don't recall seeing any option regarding "flattening". There are PNG images used, but no images overlap, and no text overlaps any image. Some pictures were anchored to page, and some to paragraph. PNG pictures were from JPG's and were not edited using layers. I also have no shadowing affects on any text. The only thing I can think of is that some text is in grey color instead of black. I have no idea what this transparency warning could be referring to.

 

I decided to go ahead and approve the proof. I would suspect any possible issue regarding transparency does not matter in Kindle or othe ebook formats or ebook channels?

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Did you tick the PDF/A-1a option when exporting? That format does not permit transparency, so it should create files that CreateSpace can digest. Your png files may contain a transparency layer that is causing the warning but - as others have said - this usually has no visible effect. I would, however, always order a hard copy proof because experience has shown me and many other people that errors are much easier to spot that way.

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Hard copy proofs are always the best bet, but you can upload new files for the cover and interior at any time if there are any problems. The only things you can't change are the details you input originally for the book's title, author, ISBN. Things like the description and pdf files can still be changed at a later date (but hopefully before you have done a lot of marketing!).

 

Good luck with your book !!

Re: PDF conversion and submission problems?

Ok, can you offer and suggest the best ocr reading application (better free or quite cheap) to me to scan pdf, pdf/a document and convert pdf to image. I need it uergently. The ocr reader i am using now (as found in the link) is a little expensive for me who don't have much budget for this. Thanks.

If you wish to convert a pdf document to a series of images you do not need ocr. You could use screen capture, at a pinch.
