iTunes Producer has a section where you can insert up to 5 screenshots of your book. I searched the iBook Store and I haven't seen one single book that has screenshots on the book page. Why is that?

 

Secondly when creating a eBook for iPhone and iPad (not using iBooks Author), should the screenshots be taken on a iPhone or iPad?

    Because you're using a computer? View a book in the store on your iPad. Screenshots are showing there for me...

     

    That should answer both questions, I believe

    I tried on my iPad but I could only see some screenshots with the book 'Life on eart'. The reason for this could also be that I don't use the US Store.

     

    So should the screenshots be taken on a iPhone or iPad?

     

    Thanks

    If the only device that sees screenshots is iPad, what do you think?

    I'm seeing screeshots on my laptop with Safari as well as when I browse the store on the iPad:

     

    Djembe Construction: A Comprehensive Guide

     

    I took the screenshots on my iPad and simply added them to the book assets with iTunes Producer.

    The screenshots for my book 'Basic Pharmacokinetics' show up in iTunes (on my computer). I created them while previewing my book on my iPad. Home/Power buttons to create the screenshots. The only hiccup was the extension was uppercase at one point which wasn't acceptable when I submitted the book. ;-) That seems to have changed and made easier.

    Thanks,

     

    nevertheless I can only see screenshots of interactive books that were made with ibooks author, or am I wrong?
