Vellum 1.2.1 Build 12100
Provides a collection of efficient tools that will help you create ebooks for the iPad, iPhone, Kindle Paperwhite or Nook Simple Touch in no time.
When importing the text, Vellum will automatically recognize the chapters and you will be able to quickly browse the data via the Contents panel. From the same area you can access the Book Info and Cover panels where you can input the book title, subtitle, the author and publisher details, the language, version and ISBN.
In addition, you are able to assign a cover image and Vellum let’s you know if the image size and format is compatible with any of the featured devices. The application also displays the recommended image format.
Moreover, Vellum enables you to add a wide collection of books specific elements which can be arranged any way you like: copyright, dedication, epigraph, foreword, introduction, preface, prologue, epilogue, afterwork, acknowledgements or about the author.
You get to customize the e-book appearance via the Styles panel where Vellum stores a collection of graphic themes designed for different parts of a book: heading, first paragraph, block quotation, ornamental break or paragraph after break. You can browse them in cover flow mode and choose the one that matches your needs.
Enable the Preview panel to view the final result on any of the 4 supported devices (iPad, iPhone, Kindle Paperwhite or Nook Simple Touch). Vellum also provides support for changing the font style or size, or the background color.
All in all, Vellum is a great companion for designing and publishing e-books, but you should be very careful when it comes to actually generating the books: you must buy a license to create the e-book and in the process the title, subtitle and author fields will be locked. You will be able to generate multiple versions for the same book but you can’t modify the locked fields.
