The SONY Reader software is more accurate in showing what the final image will look like on the PRS-505. However as an aside, I do prefer to read with LrfViewer because it tends to render the images better.
I've attached screen shots of how the images look like on the Reader, I've also downloaded them on my Reader and I can verify that the attached images are more liken to what is seen on the PRS-505
As an aside I know PDFLRF uses lanczos filter to enhance the image. What edge detection algorithm is PDFRead using?
Not edge enhancement, but dilation. It's called 'MinFilter'; I've used it in Adobe Elements (Other/Minimum...) with similar results.
for more information.
The edge enhancement (detection?) is like a 'sharpen' and is based on an algorithm published in 1987. This basically 'cancels' some of the dilation, but makes the text sharper!
p.s. BTW, in those pictures, the PDFRead version looks horrible, but the PDFLRF version wonderful! You're not selling any PDFLRF stock are you?
