We have just sucessfully validated/uploaded a fixed layout epub via iTunes Producer only to then receive an email saying the cover image exceeded a 2mb limit. 2Mb is smaller than the full screen Retina display. What is going on?

    It might say front cover but i think it is referring to the icon you see when you search the bookstore, or on the shelf in iBooks. You never actually see a high definition image of the cover unless you explicitly paste it into your ebook. In terms of marketing, It's worth noting that you need to be able to design a postage stamp size image which is eye catching and will attract a click, not a front page which looks good at page size.

    Not 2 megabytes, but 2 million pixels. The total of your pixels must not be over 2 million.
