Creating an eBook in Photoshop, is it possible?

    Hi,
    SEMrush
    I wish to create an ebook completely in photoshop, with all the pages being made in photoshop as well as the cover. Is this possible, if so, what dimensions should I be designing in?

    Thanks!
    Hecky.

    It would be much easier if you write in MS word and then convert it into PDF. for conversion you can use Adobe acrobat professional.

    sure. use paint, why don't you?

    you can make an eBook in any format you want as long as the readers can read it. Usually people make them in HTML pages or PDF format.

    yes, it's possible.
    but why don't you create it in word or openoffice then convert it to pdf ?

    I want to create it in photoshop so I can have complete control over what it looks like, ebooks in any word processing software just look cheap. :)

    Yes, you can use Photoshop to make eBooks. But like what others suggest, I would be easier if you do it on MS Word. Use templates so your work won't look lame. :)

    I suggest you do it in indesign but yeah u can do in photoshop. Although your text won't be as sharp and personally I find indesign better for large amounts of text, you can also make individual pages on 1 doc with indesign
