Now that Blurb will soon stop allowing people to make photography ebooks, do you have suggestions for other software that will do the job? I have a iMac with the M chip.

Not according to anything I can find on the web with a Google search.

I'd stick with Blurb until something else happens.

Here is the email I received from Blurb:

We wanted to let you know that starting mid-July 2022, Blurb will no longer support the creation and publishing of ebooks as we transition to an updated version of BookWright. While we have enjoyed offering ebooks as a digital book solution, we have found that PDFs offer greater versatility and less restrictions for users. Therefore, we’ve made the decision to move away from ebooks.

Here's what you need to know:

  • If you have an existing ebook project in the works or previously published, it will continue to be supported through mid-July.
  • Until then, you can still create ebooks, but be sure to download them to your computer or mobile device for safekeeping prior to the mid-July deadline.

I believe Apple Pages can export in ebook format.
