*Actually input extension cable. The input was already there, it was just not accessible.
One of the things I first noticed was that there was an option for AUX from the CD30 menu, so I started looking for a cable and indeed there was a cable sold for about 15 euros online. But I decided that I could build a small cable by myself and do not bother buying a new one.
So here is what I did:
Took the CD30 out of the car using two DIY extractors…made from a hanger. Worked nicely…
Found the pins that correspond to the AUX (R,L,Ground)
Started building the cable (I used some pins from an old computer PSU)
Connected the cable to the pins:
(forgot to take a pic, but there is not much to see anyway)
Just be careful: Red is Right. The black is usually the ground. The other one (green or white etc) is the Left.
I am preparing some applications and I needed to scan several documents and upload them online in PDF format. The problem is that there is an upload limit of 3MB per PDF document. Since I like to have my files well organized and maintain digital records for everything I always use the maximum resolution (600dpi) when scanning. This, of course, results in 5-6 MB images.
So, I had to resize multiple JPG documents and then combine them in 6-7 pdf files.
The tools I found extremely handy for this purpose were:
FastStone Photo Resizer: For resizing multiple files in a fraction of their original size. Worked like a charm! (http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm)
FM JPG To PDF Free: For combining the images to a single PDF. Pay close attention (as always?) when installing the application and uncheck the installation of unnecessary features like “Babylon search”, unless you really like them. (http://www.fm-pdf.com/FM-JPG-To-PDF-Converter-Free-Setup.exe)
From this point the procedure was easy an it was more drag n’ drop.
Let me know if you are aware of better alternatives!
P.S.: Maybe next time I should try using a loseless image format, like PNG, instead of JPG.
