ultimate pdfcropmethod

ok even with cropping some pdf like scientific american are too big for viewing on cybook 800x600 becaus the font is getting to small, one solution is to dilate it to 1200x800 but it would be the ultimate method to determine the smalles font in the pdf and the page width. for example when the page ist 1600px width and smallest font is 14pt you could dilate the page to 800px so the font will bei 7pt on the cybook.
you can uncompress the pdf with pdftk but how can i determine the smallest font


pdfread would do the rest, and how can i convert from pdfread-output to pdf

I don't know the answer to your question, but surely Scientific American organizes its pages into columns. Would just breaking them up with PaperCrop (followed by PDFread for further processing, if need be) be enough to make them readable? I'd be surprised if not.
