Others probably already knew this, but for me it's new: I can import a travel brochure or a diagram in .pdf form from the internet via iBooks and iTunes so I can look at it offline. This should be great for travel. . . but sometimes the pictures in the brochure, which show in iTunes, vanish after importation into iBooks. Does anyone know why? Or how to deal with it?

I have three brochures from the same web source. Two have pictures and text. The third has blank white space where there are supposed to be pictures between the blocks of text.

This _might_ work: delete the PDF's from your iPad. Open the PDF's in
Preview.app on your Mac. Save them under a different name (or the same
name in a new location). Move the newly saved PDF's to your iPad.

Thank you SO much! It works beautifully. I guess Preview does have a couple uses 8-)

You may find this MacOSXHints.com tip useful

"If you want to quickly add a document or a web page to your 'Books' collection in iTunes, all you need to do is to create an alias of iTunes and drag it to ~/Library/PDF Services. Now, when
you're browsing the web or viewing documents and you decide that you want to read them later on a portable Apple device just hit Print, click the PDF button on the bottom left corner of the window and choose iTunes. iTunes will launch and receive the PDF. Next, sync your device and you're ready to go."
