Oh nice! Looks like it has a "Split Pages" function. I'll give this a try.

Very powerful and scriptable, I modify (rotate, crop, etc) hundreds of files in a matters of seconds or minutes.

I will definitely keep that in mind. If I ever get to the point where I'm scanning and manipulating hundreds of files, I will definitely want heavy automation, but for now an interactive tool is better so I can figure out what the heck I'm doing. Smile

I do this quite often. I receive a pdf that has a lot of white margin. I crop the white margin out and then re-print to a new pdf. I now have a pdf without the white margins and which will display in a larger size.

That's a good idea that hadn't crossed my mind. Though I scanned the pages as grayscale, and the covers in color. Not sure if the output would end up with all the pages converted to color (i.e. larger file size).
