I've tried it but in my CSS there is not the CSS edit that DrOhh posted.
Each image it has been transformed like this (so, instead of being only the number 25 is 25_1, 25_2). This is my CSS on the image pages, like fallow:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Tutto sulle Rose</title>
<meta content="pdftohtml 0.36" name="generator" />
<meta content="user" name="author" />
<meta content="2013-06-25T15:06:16+00:00" name="date" />
<link href="../Styles/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="../Styles/page_styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body class="calibre">
<p class="calibre1">24</p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_1.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_2.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_3.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_4.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_5.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"><img alt="" class="calibre2" src="../Images/index-25_6.jpg" /></p>

<p class="calibre1"></p>

Why does the conversion split each single image in many parts?


Thanks!!!
It did not.
those are the original images (and names)
They probably just fit together without a seam in the PDF

@ctipi

I agree with theducks. The image slices are almost certainly in the original PDF, and they are laid out such that there are no gaps between the slices.

I saw these references in a search for "sliced images in PDF's". InDesign is a desktop publishing tool used to layout things like glossy magazines and trade brochures. It seems that 'image slicing' is a commonly used technique, essentially an alternative to using a progressive jpeg - which is where I 'came in' on this thread.

So the real question is:-

How to convert a PDF that contains sliced images to an EPUB that preserves the no gap layout between image slices as used in the original PDF?

I've given up trying to find a one size fits all PDF->EPUB conversion. As previously indicated I've found that two steps are often better than one step, and not always the same 2 steps. If you refer back to post #15 you'll see that jackie-w uses a 3 step process.

I've also found that I'll inevitably have to do some editing to produce a final result - in Sigil and/or Word.

Another alternative is to try one or more of the online PDF converters such as Zamzar - not necessarily direct to EPUB, eg try PRC and convert that to EPUB via Calibre. Plus those previously mentioned - Print to PDF, Doxillion etc.

There are a several tools available for Macs that will put a sliced image back together again - search for "join sliced images on mac"
