Of course when you google this it shows tons of free pdf editors.

Does anyone recommend a good one that doesn't install a bunch of malware or other crap on your system?

thanks in advance.

The one I have used is PDF converter Pro which you can get from http://pdf-file.com. Its not free yet but offers free download trial. Its inbuilt editor was great for editing PDFs without any conversion.

Maybe you can help me guys.

I'm also looking for a pdf converter who can convert folders in batches. I got an ebook while ago and I'm interested in using it for reading some comics. I have been resizing the images to the ebook res (600x800) and lowering a little the image quality since it's a waste of space in the flash to keep the original quality, I don't see any difference between a jpg in 60% and 100% in my ebook. And I would prefer the chapters in a single pdf file than having loads of folders and files. I have been looking for it but I haven't found any that allowed me to change the quality of the pictures. And if it can convert an entire folder containing all the chapter folders and making a pdf per folder that would be fantastic, but I guess that's a wild dream.

So do you guys know any jpg to pdf converter who can allow me to resize the images and change the quality? Thanks.

Well All to PDF Converter product of PDF-File.com may help you. I am sure that it is having batch conversion feature and also can convert jpg to pdf. However not confirmed whether it can re-size the image or not.

same answer, CS2. The way it would work is you would open Acrobat, and create a pdf from all of the jps at full size. then you can set the size options for the file and have it reduce the filesize of the whole pdf at once.
Printers are not free either or you got some good free one ?
I don't understand this. Of course they are not free, who mentioned printing here?

Sry for the delay, I have been very busy lately :p

I gave up on the idea of editing jpgs into pdfs. I tried a bunch of programs and it's quite troublesome to do it the way I wanted. Somehow my ebook doesn't manage very well the image quality in reader mode, apart from other problems related to the conversion, so I will stick with jpgs.

At least I discovered a free and quite complete program to convert images in batches and also create pdfs. It's called Light Image Resizer. Good and fast.

I agree that Adobe CS2 is the best choice right now, but who knows about later? I think leaving this thread open is a good idea. Users can add to it as stuff comes available. Oh and good find newtekie1! :toast: I uses the free version of PrimoPDF on windows 7 64bit and it works great and it's actually better than Adobe Reader Pro 7 in some cases. It has a great pdf printer and you can save images out of a pdf really easy. :toast:
