converting to MOBI from PDF deletes Pictures

Hi all

I'm converting some programming books to MOBI testing if this would be suitable for kindle reading but.....where are the pictures gone?

is there an option to avoid the screen captures includes in this kind of books to be deleted from the final MOBI output?

Or can anyone recommend me any tool to convert from PDF to MOBI in a fairly succesful way?

thanks a lot

First read this sticky post about converting PDFs to other formats.

In my experience you are better off leaving any programing books in PDF format or buying it already formatted as a mobi book. I don't think you'll find a tool to do what you want because PDF is a print format and Mobi is a reflowable format designed to be viewed on various size screens with various font sizes.
