Choice of image resolution for an epub file for the iPhone

Choice of image resolution for an epub file for the iPhone

(OP)
I'm creating a ebook for the iPhone that includes a bunch of images.

These images were imported into an InDesign 5 document as EPS files. They are 100% vector-based BW (2 bit) line art.

The "Export to ePub" dialog box gives me the option of choosing Low, Medium, High or Maximum resolution for bitmaps of the images that ID5 will create during the export process.

Smaller is better from the standpoint of file size and display performance, but I want the images to look sharp.

Which of these four options is probably the best for the iPhone?

Thanks again.

RE: Choice of image resolution for an epub file for the iPhone

You might be misreading the output option. The settings of Low, Medium, High, and Maximum that I see are for JPEG quality. This affects compression quality; not resolution.

Compression and not resolution???  Ooooooohh... I didn't know that. Thnx.

I guess I need to create a test file using each of the four output options and view (and compare) the results.
