This is very impressive. Thank you for your work. Now I can read my Wowio books on the Reader. They were pretty much illegible in PDF format.

version 0.4 adds drag/drop and batch processing (drag mutiple files over) + other small refinements (not specifying smartcut/runpages/splitpage scales a page to fit in an image)

cacapee, you are the best! The sales of Sony ereader could have been doubled if they bundle the ereader with your software.

Great software, cacapee!
When I was reading documents on my sony reader, sometimes I'd like to view it in a single page so I can get more content, but sometimes I think it's clear and easier to read if I split it into 2 pages.
So I have a idea, can you make a new mode, say "double portrait", the Height will be (600-46)*2=1108 or something like that, and the width will be 1108/1.29=858.
This mode will increase the size of final LRF file, but we can use the rotate function of sony reader itself to switch in different view rotation.
And thanks again for the awesome work.

Try out pdflrf's landscape mode which does a similar thing. Sony's landscape mode sucks for multiple reasons.

pdflrf's landscape mode will divide the images into 2 pages. we can switch it back to portrait mode and sometime I think switch between those 2 modes is very convenient for readers.
I mean if pdflrf can make the output file in large size so we can use a simple way to switch between portrait and landscape mode as Sony's landscape function did, it's good.
And why you said Sony's landscape mode sucks? I feel it's ok for me.

Currently pdflrf generates images that map one to one with the visible pixels in the ereader. The effect you are looking for would mean that the reader would be doing the interpolation and consequently doing a bad job of it. You can test it out by viewing pdflrf's landscape output in portrait mode. Also Sony's landscape mode greys out the bottom and top in landscape mode which is very distracting.

Rasterfarian/PDFRead do what you want in landscape mode. It obviously does not work very well.

So the only way for me maybe is convert the documents 2 times, 1 use portrait mode and 1 use landscape mode.
this way will bring some problems for example reading history and bookmarks, but it seems is the last solution.
Anyway, thanks again Cacapee, your work is really great!

Have you thought about adding an option to output the file in HTML? There are a number of other ebook devices with a similar sized screen that don't read LRF.

This is a very good tool. It would be great if more people could use it.

If cacapee can add TOC editing function, this software will become perfect. Are you planning to make it support unicode?

I vote for TOC too, if it's doable.
About unicode: does this tool care for fonts? I thought it was treating pages as images, so you could have anything there.

What I mean if the automatically extracted metadata, such as title, publisher, etc. supports unicode.
