[edit] Overview

This tool allows you to "convert" text files (TXT, DOC, DOCX, PDF, FB2, *.fb2.zip) into a set of graphic files similar to scanned pages of book or magazine. This allows reading your favorite book on a mobile device which does not have ability to show text files, but only graphical files such as the Zune or a mobile phone. This tool is very customizable to control the output files: type of graphical file, size of file ("resolution"), pagination, margins, font, color of text, line spacing etc. Also you have ability to save favorite settings and load saved earlier.

While is is called a Zune creator for historical reasons it can create content for any graphical device and in particular digital photo frames. The output files could also be used as input for CBR/CBZ formats.

This is a Windows program and it also called 'Text as Image'. The same company also has a program called iPod eBook Creator with similar specifications.
