Export to JPEG or PDF (temp iPad solution)

Postby FungManHin » Fri Jun 04, 2010 10:44 am

is there anyway to add the ability to export to a jpeg or pdf file?

as a temporary solution to having an our collections on the iPad....maybe we could export our collection in jpeg or pdf format. both those formats are easily read on the iPad and can make use of the iPad's interface. then all we would have to do is export the entire collection into jpeg and sync it up under the photo section of our ipad.

after i messed around with it a bit...that's not the best option for me. Evernote only lets you have a monthly upload usage of 40mb.

i think i may go with what i originally planned. scan all my dvd/bluray covers and just have them in the photo library on my ipad. it will take forever to do it but i think that's the best bet, for me anyway, to show my collection on my ipad without having to have an internet connection.

thanks for the suggestion tho.

There are some other iPad apps that allow PDFs that have more generous free limits. We personally use Dropbox with 2 gigabytes free space. For the images via iPhoto you can include the "Covers" folder in your data folder into iPhoto (located in your home folder ~/Library/Application Support/DVDpedia/Covers).

wow... the PDF export worked great. I saved a couple of different versions of my 400+ book collection (ThickList and Covers)... and simply dragged/dropped them into iTunes using the functionality of the CloudReaders app. Worked like a charm and took me all of about 30 seconds to do...

Now if there is a PDF reader out there with a "find" function... I will be all smiles.

Thanks for the information about CloudReaders. We use Evernote and Dropbox but will try out CloudReaders as well.
