Hi people!

Currently, I am writing my first ebook in Canva online tool for creating graphics or documents and I will be saving the file like PDF.
When I am done, I will be self-publishing it on KindleAmazon. But, I have one question about it.
Do I need to convert PDF file into KINDLE format so that people who use Kindle can read the ebook normally?

What is the best way to do that? I will have lots of pictures and designed pages in the pdf ebook and I would like to stay that way if I have to convert that pdf file to kindle format for better reading.

Does somebody have some experiences with it?

Thank you in advance!

Thank you for the answer.

I was searching how to upload an ebook on Amazon Kindle and everytime they sad that ebook should be converted for Kindle readers. So you think it is perfectly fine to read pdfs with Kindle? Can you see and click the clickable links on pdf ebooks?

Amazon have an official application for that. It's called Kindle Create. Look it up.

I'm fascinated how people don't take the time to read the documentation when trying to become publishers xD I even used to charge people $50-80 on Fiverr for converting their PDFs or .DOCX to Kindle

Ridiculous! Anyways, consider this a gift.

1. Google Calibre.
2. Download Calibre.
3. Thank me later.

This is what I use to convert pdfs to kindle format and vice-versa, works perfectly, you can preview the file and see how it'll look on different kindle devices,
before you even upload it on amazon (so you won't have to guess stuff and request modifications) and it's ad free.

Please consider donating to the programmers they are really worth it.

Cheers!

It's 2 years ago now but I uploaded my book as a *.docx file and then Amazon converts it itself to the correct format. The only 'tricky' part is doing the table of contents so I paid someone on fiverr to do that, but after a little bit more research I realised it's quite easy to do as well.

For images I used gif format as that is what is best for the Kindle devices.

It's quite difficult to get your head around all this stuff when publishing your first book so I'd advise taking your time and doing plenty of research, the second one will be easier.

I also use Calibre as recommended above as I wanted a free eBook to be available in Kindle readable format from a website although not available from Amazon and you can use Calibre to create mobi and/or epub files which can read on Kindle.

I also needed a plugin to upload it to my site as wordpress doesn't allow epub/mobi/azw3 etc to be uploaded, the plugin is called "allow ePUB and MOBI formats upload" by eKnizky.sk
