High res pictures on premium ebooks


  • Premium Member

    As I read on terms on subscription - "Premium Ebooks are DRM free and have high-res images + bonus content (when available)".
    But when I opened my own Smartphone copy volume 3 in eReader Prestigio on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 10'' it looks small. Related pic - http://imgur.com/8JQtQY4
    So, can anyone explain this to me? It's just made like that or it's just my own version like this?

    My own copy contains a 1400x1968px version of the image. So there are probably two reasons why your image is so small:

    1. The Prestigio eReader fails to render the image at full page size as it should according to the ebook's CSS.
    2. Did you download the ebook directly on your tablet? If not, and you've used Calibre to transfer it, it by default scales images drastically down for its default ereader target (which it uses when it doesn't recognize the type of device you're having).

    That's just Prestigio reader. No idea why it does that. Moon Reader and ebookdroid fill almost entire screen.
    If in doubt about state actual images, you can open epub with an archiver (epub is just a bunch of files in a .zip archive) and look at pictures there.

    Even low-res images shouldn't be rendered like this, that's really silly.
