ComicRack (free comic reading application) makes it super easy to convert .cbr files to .pdf... just open the .cbr file in ComicRack and then "Save As" a .pdf file.

ComicRack's a super program, and it's free ^_^

hope that helps! --sherm

I use iComic to read mine on my iphone, it reads cbz (zip files), to convert cbr's to cbz's I wrote a shell script that does it for me. You need to have the command line unrar in your path though for it to work.

Can share it if you want it?

OP : icomic can also read plain .zip files. What i do is unpack the .cbr with unRarX and then right-click and 'compress' the images into a zip. Very easy and Quick

A CBR is just a glorified zip file, open it up with WinZip/Stuffit and pull out the PDFs

it's a little time consuming but I discovered you can use preview to join pdfs.

i unzipped the cbr to the jpegs/pngs/pdf. it's the first two you have to open each file and save as a PDF. then open the first PDF in preview. do a save as and give it a new name (in case you mess up and have to start over). then make sure the sidebar is open. you can drag the rest into the sidebar and then save them to the new file. As far as I can tell it only works with PDFs, not images.

still clumsy but better than nothing.

Acrobat works very well to join multiple graphic files into PDFs as well. Also, check out Jomic. For those who want a twist on a PDF reader, check out Read Right.

Smile Jomic

For those looking for a one step solution to converting CBR and CBZ files to PDF's i found Jomic works very well as it has a convert function which also does batch operations so if you have 50 CBR's all you have to do is start the process and then make yourself a cup of tea.

Credit to http://www.ehow.com/how_4547079_cbr-...files-pdf.html go there for full instructions.

Hope that helps.

Download: Jomic > Install > Open > Go To "File", "Convert" > "Add" desired .CBR files > Select Target folder > On right choose "PDF" > Convert.

Once complete: Load PDFs into iTunes under Audio Books > Select your phone in devices > Books > Sync.

And you're done.

To combine PDF files into one, I use Acrobat Professional.

Thumbs up Automator does the Job

I found that you can use Automator with the Action "New PDF from Images".

Open Automator, choose Service, Choose "image files" from the input dropdown menu from the Finder and add the Action "New PDF from Images". Save it as "Combine Images to PDF".



Now you can select images in the finder and rightclick > "Services" > "Combine Images to PDF"

Voila.

I have created a little Automator service, it takes all the images in a folder and combines them to a PDF titeled after the foldername. You can Download it here: http://cl.ly/3A2R24060D0n3l1Z3U0m

To install, go to Finder, press SHIFT + CMD + G and enter ~/Library/Services and place the unpacked File there...
