    Hi everyone,
    I have been lurking this forum for a while, excited about the iPad but not expecting to get one due to cost. I am a huge fan of manga and wrote a manga processing program for my Kindle DX. My parents surprised me with an iPad on 3g launch day (they are awesome!) so I added iPad functionality to my manga processor. I thought I would share it here for any manga/comic fans.

    You can either process an individual folder of scans or, better yet, organize your manga beforehand like this and the program will batch process a collection of manga:
    Manga_Title​
    Blah_Chapter_001​
    (all the image scans of chapter 1)​
    Blah_Chapter_002​
    (all the image scans of chapter 2)​
    ...​
    Blah_Chapter_999​
    (all the image scans of chapter 999)​
    For example:
    School_Rumble​
    School_Rumble_001​
    cover.jpg​
    001.jpg​
    002_003.jpg​
    004.jpg​
    School_Rumble_002​
    (more images)​
    ...​
    School_Rumble_283​
    (more images)​

    Current features:
    + Auto trim white space, resize, rotate portrait to landscape, reduce to maximum dpi, reduce colors or grayscale... I forget what else it can do. You can specify all of these features beforehand.
    + pdf and/or zip (either .zip or .cbz) output
    + Bind folders into volumes (can either manually specify a bind file or set an auto bind size)

    Program was written in java and requires that you have ImageMagick installed.

    There isn't a gui cause I hate writing gui's in java :p

    I have used this program to process a ton of manga for my iPad. Pdf manga looks good in Goodreader, but I prefer cbz manga in ComicZeal.

    Current version can be downloaded free here (scroll to last post for the latest version):Canti: Manga Processing Program link

    Enjoy and let me know if it works for you :)
