Columns in pdf output

The columns in a conversion from a mobi file to a pdf file are very narrow. Images fill full page. It makes the book 4 times as long as it should be (i.e. 400 pages instead of 100).

Any way to adjust the text columns so they fill the page? I looked around in output formatting and found nothing that let me set column width.

I have tried using some other output formats like rtf. In this format the text comes out the right width but all the images are gone.

I am working with an 8.5 x 11 format.

The book is a piano method book and I'd like to print out some pages so I can use it at the piano.

Any thoughts??
