Help me design an ebook!

I just finished writing a novella length book. I want to publish it as an ebook readable as a pdf or on an ipad or what have you. It’s picture-heavy (with very high quality photos.) Probably every page will have pictures. I want the design to be magazine-like, with the words many times ‘on top’ of the pictures.

Excel spreadsheet to pretty clips report?

I have an Excel spreadsheet with couple hundred rows: URLs, a few fields of identifying information (outlet, etc.), for media hits on the organization I work for. I need to make this into a pretty (or at least semi-legible to the computer illiterate) document that I can give to board members, senior staff, etc. What I would like is to use some form of scripting to automate this. Bonus points if the script can somehow open the URL and take a screenshot of the story so that I don't have to. I have a Mac, and both the Adobe and Microsoft suites. How do I not spend tedious hours manually doing this? Especially since I have to do it each month and quarter.

Batch converting PDFs, how to?

How does one convert hundreds of multiple page PDFS (of varying page sizes per PDF and varying total page count), so that only a single jpeg is saved of the first page of each PDF, with the original file name intact. I have access to Photoshop CS 5 (not 5.5) and IrfanView 4.

How can I batch-automate changes to PSD/PDF annotations?

I've just finished making a few hundreds annotations to forty or so PSD files, and am quite ready to be done with them. However, being annotations, they all have my name at the top! Is there any way to batch-change this without going in and re-editing every one by hand? Save me from wasting countless non-billable hours fixing this manually! [more inside]
