Kindle Skills - Calibre - Metadata

August 14, 2010 Cindy O'Neal
Edit Metadata:
Once you have a book listed in Calibre, could be a web page you converted, a book file you found, or a personal file you brought into Calibre to convert for your Kindle, use the Edit metadata button to enhance your book before you actually do the final conversion.

Edit the title, author's name, rating, all manner of "under the hood" tweaks. You can even drag and drop an image to be imported and used for the cover. I LOVE dragging and dropping... but if you have been reading this blog any length of time, you already know that.

If you have already converted a book or two and decide to go back and tweak the metadata by adding new book covers etc, no problem. Just reconvert and the old files will be replaced by the newer updated ones.
