or

or

Trial version of PDFCropper is fully functional, the only thing - output pages include watermark (which by the way displays registration code that you need for obtaining license).

And you can download and value an example of prepared (cropped) pdf:

This is original one - http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/download/langspec-3.0.pdf

These are links to cropped one:

or
http://www.filefactory.com/file/252400/
or
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8KW32DJT

And these are links to the one cropped as image pages (only some pages are there, due large file size):

or

Also, anyone interesting in software, can send me example pdf, and I will send back resulted pdf prepared via application.

License price per one computer is 20 euro. Payment can be made via PayPal or directly to bank account.

You can ask any questions about using or installing software and details about purchasing the license via e-mail:

vstefanyuk@gmail.com

P.S. Application is implemented by using Java. You have to have installed Java environment version 1.5 or higher.
Also Ghostscript has to be installed. In case if it is not, application will propose you to download.

I downloaded the latest version to give PDFCropper a try. I decided to try cropping a PDF I downloaded from Feedbooks. The Sample.JPG (attached) shows how PDFCropper would crop it. Note that part of the text is cut off. The Pages Cropped.jpg shows the output results using the default settings for the Sony 505. So I assume I must be doing something wrong but can't figure it out. Any suggestions?

It is heavy to tell what is wrong just based on these pictures. Send me example pdf to vstefanyuk@gmail.com. I will send you back prepared one and well as project file and explanation how it was made.

With closer look, seems that you just press Crop without any tuning Of course you have to play with it a little. Still waiting your e-mail.

I sent the file a few moments ago. Thanks.

One thing missing from the program is a Help file or some kind of instructions for dummies like me . Seriously, for the less advanced user, PDF Cropper is not intuitive and a Help file would be useful.
