My goal is very simple, I just want to read novels I have scanned using my kindle 2. So the structure of the document is very simple and similar along the pages. Could you please tell me the options I should use to get a good pdf for my kindle?
I give you a pdf sample of first 10 pages of a book I wanted to convert.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Thanks for the example--that helps. I'd use these options:
-m .05 -as -ws .2 -col 1
-m .05 to clip the margins less, -as to autostraighten each page, -ws .2 will separate words more consistently for your file, and -col 1 since the source is not multicolumn. K2pdfopt still has a little trouble because the lines of text are slightly distorted (curved), but mostly the output looks very readable to me. If you want the output text larger or smaller, add -odpi XXX where XXX is larger or smaller than the default of 167, respectively.
