I have some guides in CDisplay format. I understand that I have to extract them using WinRAR. But the images I extracted are all very big in sizes. Anyway way to shrink them to the require PNG size? FYI the files resolutions are like 2000x3000.

I also do have guides which are already in PDF format. Is there anyway to uncompile them to images by the pages?

For image resizing, I use Gimp which is a free, yet advanced, graphic editor. A simpler one, which still allows image resizing is Irfanview. This is definitely a more advanced process and may be included in an "Advanced" tutorial soon.

For pdf to image I use a very unsophisticated method. I open the pdf, hit the Print Screen button, then paste the image into Gimp, chop it down to size and save it as a png.

Please note, with the PSP DocmakerGUI that I have linked in the tutorial, any image (gif,jpg,png) can be used, not just pngs.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: If you don't want to go through that hassle, email me the pdfs and I would be happy to post them for you, with proper notice for your work.

I sure hope that you will come up with the time soon to do some sort of tutorials, I certainly hope to share my collection of guides with everyone here.

I will try to have the advanced tutorial up this weekend. One thing to try before then: Download the PSP DocmakerGUI I have linked in the simple tutorial, then use it on one of your bigger-image manuals (the 2000x3000 ones). The program's readme claims that it will automatically resize/reformat your pictures. Basically follow the tutorial I posted but ignore the resizing/reformatting of the pictures. Let me know how it goes.

hey what do you know, it really auto resizes. But I have problem uploading the file as it is too big and its over the 30mb limit as it is near 70mb(226 pages). Tell me how I can share and I will get it loaded up ASAP.

226 pages? Is this a walkthrough or strategy guide? I guess I would recommend breaking up into separate files. If it is for a game with multiple discs, maybe separate it by disc. Otherwise, use a program like WinRAR to compress the file into a split archive (ie 10 7mb files).
