I've made a small software for converting jpeg into pdf (mainly for comics) Edit that actually is now optimized for both iliad and sony reader.
you can get it at this post
If someone would like to give me some info for the optimal output resolution,mediabox,palette for the sony reader i would be happy to make it compatible also for it

The screen-size is 90mm x 120 mm, I guess that 600x800 would work well.
This could be quite usefull for comics, if the images are resized well enough and the text is readable.

thanks for posting over here Kirys. To everyone, this thing prepares raw comic scans incredibly easy for our e-ink devices. Even the iliad outputs look fantastic on the Sony.

Kirys, here is a thread with some info on sizing comics for the reader. if anyone has any better numbers from experimenting please chime in.

Thanks man, I've tried just uploading the jpg's of some of the comics I have and they are entirely unreadable on the reader.

Maybe I can reformat them but going through that process 20 or so odd times for each comic is a hassle

what you mean exactly for unreadable? the file is damaged or the text is too small?

I've uploaded v0.2.0 that have initial support for optimized output for the sony,
This should display better on the sony.

He said that with just jpg files it was unreadable, not with your converter.

Yeah, what Hadrien said. I haven't tried your converter yet but when I have the time to I'll look foward to it.

P.S. Hadrien I'm still working on those short stories, I'll tell you when I put them up.

Kirys, PRS support looks good so far. There is still about 1/4" on the left and right side and maybe an 8th of an inch at the top and bottom as wasted space. I tried a normal comic, then cropped all the white space from the same comic and converted it again. Same white space was there. Ill post examples...

(2001c.pdf = cropped comic)

Your images are 770 high by 600 wide. This is too large to be shown without scaling by the Sony Reader and the proportions are wrong which is probably causing the scaled version to have extra white space as the Sony preserves the proportions.
