RE: PDF ebooks - not manga

MasterMX,

I haven't really gotten into manga or comix yet. However, I *DO* download PDF ebooks. And I've been porting several dozen of my favorite titles over to the PRS500.

I take the easiest way I know to do this. As I have Acrobat Professional, I open the PDF, save as HTML, open in BookDesigner and, after putting in page breaks at the start of each chapter, save to LRF. Works for me and I don't have to learn a new application. GAWD! Who *wants* to learn a whole new procedure! I've had to learn Paradox, MS Access, Delphi, C, C++, Visual Basic, Java, HTML, ASP, PHP, COBOL, RPG, MS WordBasic, Excel, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, FrontPage, Serif PagePlus, DrawPlus, GIMP InkScape and a vast array of other programs and languages! I do NOT want to have to learn any more than necessary!

No doubt they will develop a software app which will read my thoughts as I read a dead-tree book and transcribe direct to LRF format, some day. Until they do, I'll keep working on making my life as simple as possible. ;-)

So first i wanna ask, about my Book PDF's should i just load them streight into my PRS-500?

(It hasnt arrived yet but i wanna have the upperhand by being organised before it arrives.)

And the manga, i am currently converting it into PDF through JE-comics. but should i us rastafarian and which settings should i use on it. Because when i use rastafarian and JE it seems as if it makes the lines jagged.

so i just wanna generally know what you guys do when converting your files.
