How to add a cover image to ePub and Kindle eBooks (Step-by-step guide)

Hello Folks. ePub and Kindle eBook readers can use a cover image to display a representation of the eBook in its virtual library. It is easy to define that cover picture in HelpNDoc. Place the cover picture you’d like to use in the library. It’s recommended that you use a .jpg or .png that is either 600×800 or 300×400 pixels. To add your cover picture to your library, click the ‘Add item’ button in the ‘Library’ group on the ‘Home’ ribbon tab. From the pop up menu that appears, select ‘Add picture’. The ‘Insert an item into the library..’ window will now be displayed. First, enter a name for the cover photo. This will be the name that will be displayed in your library items list. Now, go ahead and click on the ‘No file included’ link and then select ‘Include file’ from the drop down menu. The Windows file explorer window will now be displayed for you to choose the cover picture you’d like to add to your library. Once you have selected the cover picture click the ‘Open’ button. The ‘No file included’ link will now change to ‘One file included’ indicating that the file selection was successful. Now simply click the ‘OK’ button to add your cover picture to your library. Now, click the top half of the ‘Generate help’ button in the ‘Project’ group on the Home ribbon tab. This displays the ‘Generate documentation’ window. Select either the ePub or Mobi/Kindle build you’d like to add a cover image to in the build list. If the Template settings tab is not displayed, click Customize.
