Today, more and more e-books are available in formats acceptable to Kindle readers. There are many documents and books on the Internet that can only be downloaded in PDF format. How do you convert PDF to Kindle and keep a reasonable look at your e-book?

Kindle supports PDF, but the reader does not like reading large documents. E-books available in formats such as Mobi or AZW look much simpler and simpler, which automatically adjusts the layout of the text on the Kindle screen.

Therefore, instead of worrying about reading PDFs on the Kindle, you should convert the document so that it looks much better for the reader. To this end, I recommend the K2PdfOpt program, a free tool for setting up PDF documents for e-books. You will find it, of course, on our website.

The program has some very useful features. It not only converts files, but also maximizes reading space - that is, it removes unnecessary margins, too large spaces, etc. Thus, the document is adapted to the 6-inch Kindle screen. It is important to note that K2PdfOpt allows you to save the original fonts and graphics from the document. Therefore, you do not need to worry that after converting the picture book, the text will be left alone.

How does K2PdfOpt work? After downloading and installing the program, we open it on the computer. In the main window, we have a list view with documents added to the conversion. Click the “Add File” button and add the PDF document from the computer we want to convert.

Before we can convert, we can do a few more things. On the right side of the “Device” tab, we can determine for which Kindle model the document should be created. For example, Kindle Classic (1-5) or Kindle Paperwhite.

When you’ve finished making changes, click the “Convert All Files” button and wait for the work to finish.

Elements to pay attention to during such a transformation:

  • Tables - most tables still do not fit in width
  • Images are not everything, but very large ones also crawl out of the screen

From experience: images that were inserted this way:
