Can I take a bunch of .PNGs and merge them into one big PDF?

I've got about 600 .PNG images in a folder, and I'd like to have them all in one giant PDF. Is there a way to do this with Preview?

Combine multiple images into one PDF using Preview

In Preview, choose "File->Open..." and navigate to the folder containing all your images. Once all images are open, click in the thumbnail tray (at the right), choose "Edit->Select All", then "File->Print Selected Items". In the print dialog, choose the PDF button at the bottom left of the window, then select the "Save as PDF..." item. You'll be asked where you want to save the file, and for a file name, click "Save" and you're done.

Be sure you select "File->Print Selected Items" instead of "File->Print" otherwise it won't work.

Good Luck!

[doublepost=1514842566][/doublepost]AWESOME solution !!! Thanks MDARFUS! Way to think this one out. Doing end of year and needed 93 .png files merged to one file and printed. You are the first elegant solution I used to get 2018 started. Have an IT consulting background and respect great logical solutions.

Yeah, this is definitely a great solution. I was going to say use the File->Insert... menu, but that would have taken 600 File clicks plus 600 Insert clicks plus 600 clicks on filenames.
