Finishing up work on formatting a new book by Lisa Carver, and illustrated by Dame Darcy. The book contains 11 full-page illustrations, all black and white ink drawings. I found conflicting information regarding sizing of the images. Amazon's documentation indicated 800 x 600 pixels at 300dpi (JPG 100% quality), but the KDP forum showed some people were using larger dimensions. I wound up going with 1024 x 768.

With the variety of platforms, it looks like there is no precise way to tell what the images will look like until the Kindle book is published.

Financial Aid Advisor

Websites come and go, and some of the projects I worked on for the Federal government have been phased out as administrations put forth their own initiatives. Happily, the Financial Aid Advisor lives on after 11 years. This free tool helps students and workers get a Pell Grant estimate, and identify other sources of state and Federal education and training assistance (http://www.careerinfonet.org/finaidadvisor/default.asp?nodeid=21).
