To ensure your Flipbook can be viewed across all device types and browsers, every page in the PDF is converted to an image, during the process of turning your PDF into a Flipbook. This image is then scaled and displayed using sophisticated code.


A trade-off, to achieve this, is quality.

💡 How are Flipbooks made? You can learn about how we convert your PDF into an iPaper Flipbook in our guide, below:

All non-textual elements of your PDF are converted to images, which are optimized for Flipbook use by being compressed and composed of rasterized pixels. Text within your PDF is vector-based and as such can be zoomed indefinitely.

💡 Vector vs. raster: Vector graphics are rendered by a computer using a mathematical formula. Raster images are made up of tiny pixels, making them resolution dependent and best used for creating photos.

The trade-off ensures that your content can be loaded effortlessly, across all internet connections and device types, sometimes at a small cost to the visual quality.

However, there are ways that you can minimize, the drop in quality in your Flipbook. See how you can optimize your PDF design for iPaper in the articles below:
