How about the document quality and filesize?

The edelpaper flip book can only be as good as your given PDF. Save your document as an web-optimized version.

We recommend using the PDF/A-1b standard. Single pages (not spreads) in one PDF. The fonts used in your document need to be embedded in the PDF-file. Don’t use very complex vector graphics within your document. Preferably 150 dpi resolution.

It is possible to process higher dpi values but the quality experienced by the reader won’t increase noticeably while viewing common document sizes. Whereas the file size will increase noticeably. Make sure all pages are the same size. If not, some pages might be cut off, due to the automatic correction by the player.

edelpaper is designed to convert any publication dimensions and represent your publication as a true reflection of its print counter part. It does not matter if your publication is a tabloid magazine, broadsheet newspaper, square, A3, A4 or A5. Whatever its shape edelpaper will interpret and convert.

There is a maximum file size of 600 MB/publication. For your own convenience and upload time, they should be as small as possible. Note however, that there is no converter that down- or upscales the files to a specific dpi-value.
