I have created a html google maps widget using the www.ibooksgenerator.com solution. The solution creates a default.png file 640px x 640px. If you create a html container in iBooks Author at the same size as the default.png then this image when you activate the link will display as the original. However if you create a html container at say thumbnail size and use the same default.png image then when you activate the link the image displayed is pixelated because my guess is that the container image is reduced from 640 x 640 and stored at the size of the container which becomes pixelated when blown up to 640 x 640.

 

I guess the question is irrespective of what size the html container image is how do you get it to display the image at 640 x 640 when you activate the link.

    the size of the Default.png is the size of the working html widget in Author. There are many examples in the An iBuild Opportunity series.

    Author allows you to replace the image displayed in the publication, but the Default.png is the size the widget displays when it is interacted by the reader.

     

    So, if your html widget (640) is displaying smaller images (100) they will be pixelated. It is easy to build your own html widgets to get the results you are looking for...

    Please see An iBuild Opportunity and try the Sample.

     

    This is my series on demonstrating many building books methods.

     

    HTML widgets do not have to be complicated, and if you understand the code your last response includes, you could easily build your own HTML widgets to do almost anything you can do on the Web.

     

    Hope this helps...

    According to Apple, the entire An iBuild Opportunity series is cleared for sale in every territory.

     

    Please let me know if you cannot find the publications and I will contact Apple.

     

    Thanks...
