A situation I often run into, especially with Cook Books, is the size of the images. Publishers seem to assume that you want to view the books either on a PC or a tablet with a high resolution, colour display, and this leads to the images in the ePubs being quite large (400 k and up).

What I tend to do is to use the Tweak function to explode the ePub, then Irfanview to re-sample all the images, retaining their dimensions but lowering their quality, and finally, letting the Tweak function rebuilt the ePub.

It would be far simpler if a plugin existed that could handle this, possibly with criteria to handle the selection of which images to re-sample, and maybe even the ability to convert images from colour to black and white.
