Nice trick, I once thought about using Hypersnap to capture Zinio documents. The problem, the captured document consists entirely of images, which means a) it's very big, and b) it doesn't allow any cut&paste of text content within the document.

Yes Dorothy there is a way to convert Zinio to pdf...

I do not know the exact method but I have encountered converted magazines which still retain the Zinio tags.

They appear to be produced by TeAM YYePG. email to: yyepg@msn.com.

Zinio magazines are cumbersome, a little less so when you turn off the page turning animation. Having pdf files with thumbnails and bookmarks I think is more practical.

Reading lengthy text, even on a good quality screen like an iMac, is a chore, but these magazines can make excellent references when heavily illustrated with tutorials like some of the better British magazines such as Computer Arts and 3D World.

Yeah, I read about a method the other day, but this was pretty much work. You basically have to print every page into a PDF, join them afterwards and edit set the tags again.... someone seem to have pretty mucht time, though.
...and if I remember right, you can't even print in some mags. .

Page flipping effect in Zinio Reader

hii everyone,

currenlty i'm working on a project similar to zinio reader(My domain is VB.net).i've done a page turning effect but its entirely different from zinio reader. In zinio, the page turning starts with a curve at the top and bottom corners.but in my reader, there's no such curve, jus flipping a flat edge. i heard that zinio used directx for the page turning effect. i am really newcomer to Directx. can anybody help me this problem.i hope i'll get a positive reply very soon

best regards

Can't really help, but here is a flash version of pretty nice turning effect. Perhaps you can find a tutorial explaining this routine or get the actionscript out of it for studies.

Follow Ret's steps. You can use one of the world's most powerful OCR tools like Readiris Pro to convert it to a text PDF or word file. Then, you can change it to any format your mobile reader allowed. And, you can edit the text as you wish.

Just a question to the publisher of that design magazine.
How many subscriptions of possible readers have you lost because of zinio?

Alright call me what you like. But How exactly do you convert multiple images to pdf using snagit? Just bought the program and new to it so could use a helping hand. I have some zinio mags that I would love to read on my kindle fire but for whatever reason the application does not load/see the file.

thanks step by step instructions would be wonderful
