There are often times when you need a PNG converted to PDF – for instance, you may have to import a screenshot into a PDF report, turn a scanned document into a PDF, or just insert a pre-existing signature into a document. Movavi PDF Editor lets you convert one or more image files to PDFs in just two clicks.

How to Change a PNG to a PDF on Your Desktop

Step 1. Download the Software

If you need to transfer a PNG to a PDF document, download and install the desktop version of Movavi PDF Editor on your PC or Mac.

Step 2. Import Your Files

Start the program, click Open File, and select the image file you want to process. To combine multiple images into a single PDF, click Merge Files, and select two or more PNGs for merging and converting to PDF. Hit the Merge button – the software automatically opens all the selected images on one tab in the Pages mode.

Step 3. Convert PNG to PDF

From the File menu, select Save As. The Save As dialog box lets you specify a name for the new PDF to be created.

The choice of image resolution for exporting to the PDF format depends on several things, including what you want to convert the image for and how quickly you want to process it. If you need to upload a photo and signature to a visa application form, the resolution of the image files must be no less than 300 dpi. For a proper illustration in a digital magazine, we recommend using a 200-250 dpi resolution. If you want to insert a screenshot or a chart into a report, 100-150 dpi would be enough. If you upload multiple images and want to maintain a high conversion speed, you can reduce the resolution of your images to 72 dpi.


When choosing the image resolution for exporting to PDF, it's important to decide on a balance between image quality and file size.
