Viewing .CBZ/.CBRs on ebook devices effectively!

Those who want to try a new Comic (CBZ/CBR) to LRF/PRC/HTML/IMP converter may want to try PDFRead 1.8.1 which was just released in the Content forum. Input support for .CBZ/.CBR was recently added in addition to pdf/djvu/tiff/imglist. Output Profiles have been provided for the Sony PRS-500 and PRS-505/Kindle/Cybook Gen 3/iLiad/Generic as well as the EBW1150/REB1200.

PDFRead 1.8.1 can be found here.

While it may require the (free) eBook Publisher software installed, it allows for cropping, rotating, dilating (thickening the text) and edge enhancing with colors/grayscale from 2 to 256! It also outputs in various landscape and portrait modes to suit your needs.

I'd be interested in some feedback if the default settings for your device are to your liking. You may respond here or in the PDFRead 1.8.1 thread.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Some CBZ sample pics on different ebook devices (via PC viewer software). 'Portrait' mode displays one full page (_P) whereas 'Landscape-half' mode requires two page-flips for each page (_L1 and _L2) but has better clarity! Note 3 images for each ebook reader (_P, _L1, _L2).
