Thanks
Do you mean replacing kindlegen with calibre integration? If the mobi generation works it'd be great to port kcc as calibre plugin, but I still want to keep it standalone too, many people do not use calibre at all (while I happily do :P )

E.g 'Kindle DXG': ((758, 1024),Palette15a)

Cheers
Kcc actually uses the image.py class from Mangle, extended with the Paperwhite profile, so it has the same requirements (PIL) and the same way to work for processing images!
