Images don't always make it through the conversion for some reason. In
those cases you might have to read the PDF without converting it, which
is doable but not quite as good as using a reflowable format. The
original BeBook firmware is better for this than OpenInkpot.
If the images use colour to convey significant information you need to
take into account that the BeBook will dither everything to 4 greys.
