Some notes to myself on working with DJVU and PDF.

To convert a DJVU file to PDF:

  • Download djvulibre for windows.
  • Use ddjvu.eve -format=pdf -page=1-10 infile.djvu outfile.pdf
  • Manual: Notice in particular docs about quality, using JPEG compression etc.
  • Source:

To convert a PDF file to DJVU:

  • Could use pdf2djvu
  • This is nice: it preserves hyperlinks etc. in the PDF file. Definitely worth playing with the dpi option, as the default often produces rough looking text. A dpi of 600 seems a nice compromise.
  • Usage: pdf2djvu -o out.djvu --dpi=600 input.pdf
  • Source:
