To begin with using PDF as a source for this ePub is doomed to failure. Read this sticky post for more info.

This isn't going to change. PDF is a print format with a set number of pages. Epub is a reflowable format where the number of pages vary per device size and font size.

Five photos per page on a 6 inch reader isn't going to work. If you are just creating this magazine to be viewed on a pc or in print then stick with PDF.

I have a few suggestions.

1. Wrap your head around the Pros and Cons of the epub format.2. Avoid PDF as input for creating and ePub.
3. Develop your magazine as html this will allow easy conversion to multiple formats.
4. Try alternative solutions for creating epubs.5. Go back to number 1.

My experience is limited so I can't address specifics. You might want to seek out development help in the Epub sub-forum.

Good Luck.
