    Hello.. Are there any good converters (by good I mean free [​IMG]) which convert
    1) .pdf to .cbds
    2) .cbr/.cbz to .cbds
    3) .jpg to .cbds

    I know about pictods but it asks for a pdf to jpg converter in the command line which I don't have. Also I don't exactly know what to put in the unrar command line..

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.... [​IMG]

    imagemagick doesnt work? (link)
    Code:
    convert -density 300 file.pdf file.jpg
    or GSview + ghostscript? (link)
    You just open the pdf in GSview, file->convert, pick jpeg, and for name choose
    Code:
    NAME%03d.jpg
    that will generate NAME001.jpg, NAME002.jpg, NAME003.jpg, etc...

    I'm linking to open source software websites, so I dont think I'm breaking the rules, right? [​IMG]

    The PicToDS converter can already do CBR/CBZ-to-CBDS and JPEG-to-CBDS fine. For PDF conversion, I normally use Paperless Printer to print out the PDF to a series of JPEG images. Try the other posters' suggestions first though.
