    I've been converting pdfs to jpegs then using ComicBookDS to create a NDS file, the text always seems to come out a little blurry no matter what setting I use. Has anyone else successfully converted a PDF to ComicBookDS with sharp text or has anyone any tips on the best settings to use?

    Thanks

    hmm, a size equivalent to the original tends to retain its quality (No resizing of course) from my experience, but i have had varied results with this program so you have to fiddle around a bit to find your best settings.

    Ton convert the pdf play.d magazine (.cbds available here : http://cbds.free.fr/),
    i used PDFill to create .png files from the pdf.
    Those png had a width of 2000 pixels.
    I then used pictods with the default settings except the "Width" equal to 1000 (half the original size), and an increased "max size" (1060000)
    The result is not perfect, but is quite well readable.

    I found the sharper text came from converting the pdf to bmp files, I will experiment again with png, thanks.
