Problems turning PDFs into bookreader objects

Some PDF files will not look right when directly processed into book reader objects. In these cases we recommend that you convert the PDF as a PDF/A-2b and upload it again.

Problems with image upload, possibly related to bitmap files

If you experience issues with images failing to upload or crashing the LUNA system, there is a chance the format is actually a bitmap file, even if the file extension is not BMP. It's not always easy to tell, but usually it's something that looks like a fax with just 2 colors black and white. Different files can be saved as bitmap images. In Photoshop you can looks under the Image/Mode menu and tell.
