Yes that is true that there isn't any area at the sides of the document to crop. As far as the quality of the PDF it is superb probably because it is from a magazine company i have a digital subscription to the pdf is not however protected. Grrrr so frustrating rasterfarian handled these perfectly lol. oh well

If you can send me a sample page that exhibits this problem, I can look into this.

Here are the sample pages you asked for first 14 pages no nudity that I can see in any of the pages I hope thats acceptable. PB0807-1.lrf is what happens when I have only crops sides checked as suggested. PB0807-2.lrf is what happens when I leave the settings at default for portrait.

Only reason I am whining so much about this is when I had rasterfarian it converted these perfectly and I found I rather enjoyed reading (yes I actually like to read the articles) it on my ereader so I signed up for a 1 year subscription. Now it is all messed up lol.

Look under the Document menu, you should find what you need there (I'm not sure if you want the first 14 pages or if you want pages 15 through something else, or I'd try to be more specific ).

In that case you can go to page 15 and choose delete pages in the Document menu, or you can do Extract Pages, either one should get you what you need. But those options aren't there in the Acrobat Reader app, only in the full Acrobat installation ....

Here are the sample pages in pdf format. I had to zip them to get it under 5mb but it is pdf inside. Thanks again I really appreciate you taking a look.

Unfortunately, rasterfarian gives the best results for image-based pdf's:
PDFlrf is good too, but the filesize is double the size of a rasterfarian-file, and also lacks contrast.

Samples here:

Thanks for making a comparison. I didn't add the sharpness filter to pdflrf - but it looks like that does make a difference. Also for file size, try reducing the number of colors.
