Hi everyone :)

Could I ask you for some program recommendations, possibly ?

– I have a folder with lots of PDFs, these PDFs were made from scanned images in damn high res, above 3000px. I’d like to resize the images composing the PDF to only 1600 px. And this is all there is to these files, these PDFs are only composed, internally, of high res pictures, all of them of the same dimensions.
Is there a program that would accept to resize these images, so that it takes less place on the disk ?

– One of my relatives plans to convert all of ther CD collection to mp3, and she’s asking me for a program that I could recommend her for this task.
Personally, I use CDex, but I feel that program’s not newbie-friendly enough, while my relative isn’t too at ease with computers : she needs a program that handles practically everything for her (including fetching a remote DB for track names and all, for instance) and is easy to handle.
If you know a program like that, for Windows, I’d be grateful too :)

EDIT : I’m starting to look up the recommendations that were given, thank you guys !
However, a note, and an important one at that because help requests is something you’ll read your whole digital life : when you are asked newbie-friendly recommendations don’t go recommending complicated technical stuff, lol. Seriously, when I wrote my friend needed an easy program that would handle everything for her, suggesting to use EAC, for heaven’s sake ?!? :D


Hello! This post is getting on years, so here's a friendly mention... If all the links are dead, you may try using
THE HENTAIRULES GIGATORRENT
Pick exclusively a precise file with a keyword search, or bulk leech like a madman, it's quick and easy :)

For the Second problem your relative could use Winamp, ITunes or just the Windows Media Player. Though I recommend WinAmp, the other ones should do the trick, too.

GIMP can batch resize your pdf’s. http://www.gimp.org/

I would use Ghostscript for the resizing, because it handles pdfs etc. really well. Additionally you could script it in a shell / bat script to convert all pdfs that you have.

As for 2nd problem, I use EAC (Exact Audio Copy), there’s a guide at hydrogenaudio.org. But you need additional application like LAME (for MP3), NeroAAC (for AAC), etc. to use with EAC.

For the 1st question. You can use Nitro PDF to extract image from PDF file It also can customize output file. Or just for resize i use Faststone image viewer, It has tool for batch resize. http://www.nitropdf.com/

for audio Cd rip i use audacity. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Windows Media Player est vraiment simple et fourni avec Windows. Il faut juste changer une option (je ne sais plus où mais c'est facile à trouver) pour avoir les fichiers en .MP3 et non en .WMA
Par contre, il faudra renommer les fichiers un par un

For question 2

DVD video soft is by FAR the easiest conversion program out here and it is free. Download it and try at and i promise you wont regret it.

I recommend foobar2k. Its pretty easy to use. You will need lame.exe, which you can get here: http://www.rarewares.org/mp3-lame-bundle.php to convert to mp3. And: http://www.foobar2000.org/encoderpack to convert to other. Theres a guide on how to do this here: http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foo

Alternatively use EAC.

Actually EAC is a very newbie friendly program.

Once you have setup the program, all she needs to do is just click the button (largely labelled too!) that says MP3.

You can teach her to get the cd info from the cddb.

I personally like Winamp but that might not be friendly enough… Maybe Window Media Player?
