For PDF ebooks from scanned books.
Here's my settings for my Kindle:
Layout: Landscape -third
Size: H=520 V=640
Any suggestions? on how to improve the output? I wish I can read the scanned pdf portrait with the text and graphics still big enough to read.
I usually resort to 'Landscape-half' as my preferred layout mode, but if I can get it to work in 'Portrait-full', then I go that route.
If by "improve the output" you mean file size, then for sure using the gray colorspace and reduced number of colors helps keep the file size down. And so should 'Optimized .PNGs'.
If you mean image legibility, then increase the edge level by one or two for sharper text, or increase the DPI for less dilation/blurring of the text or a combination thereof.
Experiment but remember when doing so to limited the page range 'Pages: __ to: __' or you could be wasting a lot of time when things don't work out!
