Device: nook simple touch
pdf (with images) to html to ePub (mac)

Hey everyone.
I'm new with Calibre and I just got a nook simple touch, but I'm kind of disappointed about the pdf format troubles.
I can easily transform pdfs into ePub, but the result is not what I want (too small to read). I know this is related with pdf not being a reflowable format, so I followed a post that advised to transform to html and then to ePub. The result is great but the embedded images disappear. The same happened when tried through open office (odt).
I saw another post that reported the same problem, but the fix was a slow manual process including WinHTTrack and html2epub.exe (I'm on a mac...). I could install it with booth camp, but I think there should be a more straightforward way to do it. Or not? Maybe I'll need to write a small script?

Any comments will be much helpful, thank you !!
