Talking >> Manga Converter <<

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a converter that can adjust the height/resolution according to an e-reader. Example of e-readers will be Aura HD (resolution) and Kindle DX (9.7").

Also, a converter that can enhance the pictures quality.

Software that aren't too difficult to use.

Thread moved to a more appropriate spot. Reading apps are not used for converting.

As far as I know, nothing exists that will fill your requirements. Firstly, Kobos and Kindles read different ebook formats (ePUB and MOBI, respectively). Secondly, although Kindle has a Kindle Comic Creator, that makes a MOBI, not an ePUB that would work on a Kobo. I know of no "Comic converter" software for ePUBs whatsoever. There are comic book apps out there, that I suppose you could try. There's certainly no "ebook-making software" that "enhances the pictures [sic] quality;" if you want to edit images for inclusion in any type of ebook, you have to tweak them with imaging software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp--something like that.

Any software that allows you to make the type of more-advanced ePUB you'll need for Manga, Anime or Comic books isn't going to be easy, or "drag and drop." At a minimum, you'll need to make images of panels and/or pages, and you'll need to learn to use something like Sigil. Alternatively, you can try Kindle Comic Creator.

There might be some type of plug-in for Calibre, but you may have to ask over there. Making comics work for eBooks is quite difficult, usually because comics are drawn with text crossing panels, or in full-page size, (usually by someone drawing on an 8½ x 11" piece of paper), and then has to be shrunk to "fit" in an e-reader, which makes the text very difficult to read. If you use Kindle Comic Creator, you can learn to create Region Magnified Text (pop-up text that enlarges the text of the dialogue bubbles or descriptions), but again: you'll have to work in the code. It's not super-easy.

That's the best I can tell you. Hopefully, someone else here knows of a different product or app that can assist you, but I don't know of any. You might try heading over to Comixology or one of those sites, to see if that have apps or programs that will help you make something you can read using their apps. I don't have any familiarity with how their software/readers work, but they might have something.

Check my signature :-)

It should be enough if you not planning to set panels for Panel View manually.

Although, as I mentioned previously, it will not work for your Kobo/Aura.
