Converting Multiple Images to PDF with Movavi PDF Editor

Movavi PDF Editor is one of the easiest solutions for converting a batch of images to a PDF file. It lets you convert different image file formats including JPG, PNG, and BMP from and to PDF. You can also use this app to edit the new PDFs, for instance, to duplicate, rotate, remove individual pages, or even change the order of those pages. To convert multiple images to PDF in one pass, follow the steps below.

Step 1.

Download the latest version of Movavi PDF Editor from the current web page. Double-click on the executable file to begin the software installation.

Step 2.

Launch the program, click Merge Files in the right upper corner of the program window, and select two or more image files for merging and turning into a PDF.

Step 3.

Press the Merge button – the program automatically opens all the currently selected images on one tab.

Step 4.

To save these images as a PDF, highlight them all at once by holding down the Shift key (Cmd key for Mac) while selecting the first and the last image in the group. Then, go to the File menu and choose the Save As option. The dialog box will let you choose a name and location for saving your PDF file.

Converting JPG to PDF for Free with novaPDF

Another free alternative for converting images to PDFs is NovaPDF. Unfortunately, there is no ability to add a JPG directly to the program, but you can use the virtual printer option to import an image and save it as a PDF. Note that there is a possibility of significant image quality loss.

To convert a picture to PDF with novaPDF, download and install the software on your computer. Open the desired image in Windows Photo Viewer (Preview on Mac OS) and hit the Print button in the upper right corner of the window. When the Print Pictures dialog box opens, click Print and select where you want to save the PDF file.

Converting Images Online with Smallpdf – a JPG to PDF Online Converter

For those who want to convert images to PDFs directly in their browser, we suggest checking out Smallpdf, which also supports JPG-to-PDF conversion. However, there is a limit to the number of files that can be processed (the limit is 2 free conversions per hour). Also, there is no guarantee that your data will be kept secure, confidential, and unaffected.

If you’re ok with this, go to the official Smallpdf website. Select the JPG to PDF button on the control panel on the main page. Click Choose file to add the image file you need to convert. Alternatively, you can drag and drop it into the workspace. Then, just press the Create PDF Now button, and the converter will generate a PDF version of the uploaded image.
