I have an ebook with some pages are normal size, and some pages are small. I'll be reading a page, scroll down, and I'll see like 4 pages in a row that are like 1/6th the size of the one I'm reading, then I scroll down some more and I'll see the next pages normal size, and so on. Is there any way to fix this? It's extremely annoying having to zoom in 6 times on the small pages, and then zoom back out for the normal size pages every time I cross one of those pages that are tiny.
Thanks.

From what I know it depends on the ebook (device) and ebook format (mobi? pdf?), so you will not get any general answer.

This is the same behavior with pdfs made from photo albums scrolling through landscape and portrait photos. The best you can do is set your prefs to do page at a time.

You might be able to get a tool to break up the pdf into individual pages then resize the small ones to the same size as the larger ones and then recombine them as a single pdf.

Image Majik tools could help to do some of the work:

Image-majik convert command can resize photos:

And here's someone with a similar problem who used imagemajik to fix the problem:

Thanks a lot. Setting it to page at a time is the best bet for me, I think, because the book has over 1300 pages. Resizing about half of those would be extremely tedius.
