How to Re-size Digital Comics in ComicRack for use with Tablets

Image
For those of you who don't know ComicRack  is a utility to not only organize your physical copies but also any comics you have in .CBR, .CBZ, .PDF, .CB7, DjVu, .CBT, and a few others. "ComicRack is the best eComic reader and manager for Windows computers. It is an all-in-one solution to read and manage your eComic library. It is actively maintained, has a strong user base and is FREE." One feature that I found to be very helpful when transferring your comics from your PC to a Tablet is the custom Export. Basically it allows you to re-size or compress the files based on the criteria you set and can even change the format based on what your device supports. You might ask yourself why would I want to re-size or compress the comics on when my device says it supports 1920x1280 resolution wouldn't I be getting distortion? The answer is No.
