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 :)
