PDFs on Kindle
Kindle is great for PDFs but the screen really is too small. Honestly, I think the 6 inch screen just doesn't cut it. Amazon needs a 9 inch screen for under $200.
To convert images to PDFs, like in the case of documents that you want to backup. You snap photos of the documents. Then use the Linux command 'mogrify' to fix them. 1 photo, 10 photos or 1000. Doesn't matter.
mogrify -resize 1200x1600 -type grayscale -quality 75 *.jpg
I had to drop my CPU down to 1Ghz instead of 2 because it would kinda get too hot. My HP laptop has an AMD Turion x2 running Ubuntu 10.10 Linux.
Now do the following with the warning that you need 5-20 Gb space or a huge SWAP partition. I know this is bad programming and Imagemagik needs to fix this but we just have to suffer now. This will seriously slow down your computer.
convert -compress jpeg *.jpg book.pdf
When it's done, you should have a PDF file of your entire group of images.
mogrify can also trim/crop the photos. We can find the coordinates by using the GIMP crop feature. I can explain that in another post if somebody needs to know.
