    I've scanned in a couple of pages in a magazine and they're in jpg format. I wanted to combine several of these jpgs and make one multipage pdf file. I found an application (freeware) called CombinePDF and I've downloaded it from VersionTracker and the developer's site. The problem is that the .sit file is empty after unzipping.

    Anyone have any thoughts or alternatives.

    I running Tiger 10.4.1

    1) File --> Print all the JPEGs to PDF files
    2) Download PDFLab software (free) and use that to merge them all into one document.

    If you have Adobe Acrobat, it will make pdf's/multiple from jpg file(s). Obviously, if you don't, you can't do it that way. Here's another link for download from monkeybread. It unzipped fine on my desktop, but I haven't tried it. Hope you get it done.

    Another enthusiastic vote for PDFLab -- one of the utilities I could not live without.

    Another useful program for this sort of thing is GraphicConverter. Indispensible.

    Duff-Man says...just paste all the jpg files into a new TextEdit document and insert a page break between them (if desired)...then save as a pdf from the print function....no additional software required.....oh yeah!

    THANKS!

    Thanks for the replies.

    I downloaded PDFLab and it works great. Incidentally, PDFLab works with jpg files just fine. You can add the jpg's right onto the PDFLab window and it'll convert it to pdf.

    I love it.
