Support » Plugin: BookPress - For Book Authors » Front Cover Image

    BookPress looked like exactly what I wanted, so I started putting it through its paces both as an author and as an experienced user-interaction consultant. How much feedback do you want? And do you want it here or elsewhere?
    For example, I loaded in a cover image and it appeared blurred. It was a 932×1386 png, so I then tested with other images in a variety of sizes. All of them were blurred, including an extra large (1860×2760) 300 dpi jpg. To test if it was a BookPress or monitor issue, I then inserted that same image into a standard WP post at full size. It displayed perfectly on my staging site.
    Given that I intend to use BookPress privately to organize my posts (PhysicsSpot.com) into a book, this issue is not important to me. However, it would be crucial for users who want to make their book public.

    I also just noticed that the image is cropped at the bottom. What is the preferred image size and dpi for the front cover?

    Edit: I also just discovered that I must write everything within this plugin—it does not allow me to bring already written posts into the book. I want to be able to organize my existing posts as chapters and then insert(write) new chapters. Unfortunately, without this feature this plugin is useless for me. (I realize I could cut-and-paste from the existing posts, but then I have to keep track of which posts I have duplicated.)

    Thank you for the feedback. BookPress is a new plugin and we really welcome user comments as they are a great help.

    Yes you will have to cut/paste existing posts, there is no direct import.

    The only advice we offer about the cover image is that is should be proportional to a standard 6 x 9 cover. We will take a look at how this is displaying but have not had any issues ourselves with blurring and use 800 by 1280 pixels at 72dpi.
