Does anyone have a working link for svoda's jpeg-pdf converter? The links I found via search were dead. Thanks. EDIT: Actually, if you know of another good converter please post it. I only want to convert from pdf to jpeg.

Default turning a line that is not a link into a link

A few years ago, I found either a program or an add-on that turned a line of text for a link, which then has to be copied and pasted to actually go to that link, into an actual link. I've searched but cannot find it.

Can anyone help?

If you use Firefox, you can use this addon, just double click on any link even works with FF 6.2 or whatever version we are up to now.

Excuse me, that i had not reported immediately. However, i was on holiday and therefore not accessible.

Unfortunately, the link lists of Rapidshare do not longer work.

Here is the direct Rapidshare link for the program JPGextoPDF version 1.16:
https://rapidshare.com/files/367318888/JPGextoPDF_v1.16.rar

If someone should know a better variant, where I can store the program saftly and for long time,
so that it is always accessible for all, please to a note.

Default IrfanView issue

Hi - I scanned an old mag recently and then used Irfanview to rotate and crop the images. This is the first time that I have tried to do this and I was paying attention to the cropping and numbering of the finished images and didn't pay any attention to the file sizes until afterwards. The unadjusted images were generally around 2 MB in size, but after I had cropped them, they had like doubled in size. I don't know why that happened - I set the options to give me the best quality JPEG afterwards, but the file sizes are like 5 MB each now - which is a bit too big really. I was going to post it on the Vintage Bondage thread, but these are too big for Imagevenue and it seems daft that a single mag should be such a big download.
Any suggestions on what I might have done wrong and what settings I should have used? Also, any suggestions on any programs/add ons that I could use to adjust all of them in one go - have now got about 48 of these large cropped pics and if it is possible to avoid having to go back to the original images and re-crop and re-save them all over again then that would be a great help.
I have put a few of the uncropped and cropped images onto Megaupload so that people can see what I'vd done. Any suggestions/help will be greatly appreciated.

Uncropped.zip
5.65 MB

Hi Threadbanger,

The "best quality JPEG" is probably the culprit at fault. Jpeg is a 'lossy' picture compression engine--this means that the higher the quality, the less information is removed from the picture, and therefore the larger the file is; also the lower the quality, the more information is removed from the picture, and therefore the smaller the file.

By altering your pictures (cropping, etc.) and recompressing the file, you have added more information to the file size.

Irfanview is attempting to retain as much of the original picture and rendering information as possible (i.e.: 'best quality'), therefore the file sizes of the new pictures are very large. To make smaller jpeg files, you will need to sacrifice the quality of the pics.

An alternate possibility is to try and use a 'lossless' compression engine, but many file host-sites do not allow these types of files.

I hope that explains things a bit. I am sorry that I couldn't help more.
e.d.

You could use Ifranview to batch convert them to jpg

That's great - thanks for the help. I will be more careful when setting the resolution during cropping in future. I didn't realise that you couild do batch jobs with IrfanView - I had had a look before but had missed it - found it via the help menu and after a little bit of fiddling managed to get a batch of smaller images that I can upload.

ED and rotobott are right. I would add to this the remark that you don't need the 100% quality. This is one of the pics resaved at 75%:


Now it's 911 KB. Can you see the difference?

Irfanview is truly a great tool and I higly recommend it for scanning magazines.
The cool thing is that it has a batch scanning function (File>Acquire>Multiple Images).
1 - enter the Output file name
2 - enter the number of the page you start with
3 - enter the increment for each scan
4 - enter the number of digits used (1 for <10, 2 for <100, 3 for >100
5 - tick Remember last scan counter
6 - Choose destination directory
7 - Save as bitmaps




This way you don't have to worry about saving your scans anymore, Irfanview will do that every time you click the 'Scan' button of your scanning software. Each scan will be properly named and numbered.

Ad 3: this will usually be 1, but in the case of small mags, you can set it to 2, because you can scan 2 pages at once.
Ad 5: this means that you can stop scanning the mag today and continue next week and Irfanview will still number them correctly.
Ad 7: this is important. you should first save your scans uncompressed. Edit them (rotate, join, crop, whatever) and only after that save them as jpegs. As rotobott pointed out, this can be done easily with Irfanview too.
