Adding Value to Ebooks – color figures
There’s a big continuing discussion about how much ebooks should cost and we continue to listen and learn. Beyond the price question though, what’s more interesting to me is what ebooks can do that print books can’t. Of course, searchability, portability, many other ebook features are well known. But adding value to ebooks is an important focus for us.
So, I’m happy to announce one small step we’re taking that’s available first in Professional SharePoint 2010 Branding and User Interface Design. Although this book is printed in what publishers call 1 color (black – most readers call this black and white) the ebook is in color for the figures, like this:
We’ve rearranged a few steps in our book production workflow to accommodate this and on books where we do this going forward, color screen shots and figures will be the norm in any ebook format and device that supports color. We hope that for some readers, this extra value in the ebook will encourage ebook purchases. And we’ll continue looking for more ways to help you get more from your ebook purchases.
