How do I insert images into my KDP Print books?

All you need to do is insert the illustration into your Word Document and then save it as PDF. A few things that you’ll want to bear in mind, though:

  • Your illustration should be as high of a DPI as you can make it, ideally 200-300 dpi. (Anything less than 300 will probably raise a warning from KDP Print, but will usually print fine even if you have a lower dots per inch.)
  • Make sure that when you insert your images into Word that you are including the file itself and not just a link to the file. (Make sure that “Link to File” is not checked when inserting your images.)
