Have you had this happen to you? You publish your Kindle ebook, and look eagerly for those great photos you included, only to find your photos missing... and little cameras and red triangles instead.
I had that happen to me, recently. I was writing a tutorial to show how to use MS Word graphics in a Kindle ebook.
I saved my Word Doc as HTML ("Web Page, filtered.htm, html)", and uploaded the htm file (Tutorial.htm) to the Amazon KDP Publishing platform.
To my great disappointment, some of the pages looked like the picture below.
The problem was that I had uploaded only the text portion of my file. MS Word had put my graphics in a separate file, and I had forgotten to upload it.
The solution is easy.
When you save a Word Doc file as HTML (Web Page, filtered. htm), it creates two files, putting the text in one file and the pictures in a separate file -- it's actually a folder" -- with the same name, but with "_files" at the end of the name.
The solution is to "select" both files (making sure you don't also select the DOC file) and zip them together.
Then upload that zipped file to the Amazon KDP Publishing platform.
I'll show you how in pictures, next.
