Any freeware apps to convert JPG to PDF?
Open in Preview, print and save to PDF?
What is wrong with Print to PDF?
EDIT: fondacio's click is quicker than mine.
A photo finish: save as PDF
Good thinking folks
Actually there's also "export" in Preview in the File menu with which you can save it in PDF format, which is probably what skinny*k meant with save to PDF.
If you don't mind my prying, why would you want to make that conversion? The JPEG is already in a lossy format, so any further conversion will likely degrade the image.
Actually, the images wouldn't really be "converted", the PDF file acts as something more like a wrapper that leaves the original jpg data untouched. Of course, you could then compress the resulting PDF, which would typically involve compressing the images contained in the file.
That still leaves the question of why convert to PDF at all.
I haven't done it that often, but when I have done it, it is because I have a collection of pictures and I need to point things out in an order. Thus I throw them into a PDF (using Preview) and then add arrows, text and other callouts that way. Then just distribute the PDF and it stays the way I wanted it to look.
But that's not all that common. Oddly enough, I had to do it earlier this week.
You can put multiple PDF pages into a single document, for example. So stack of JPG photos becomes a single document.
I do this too.
Good tip. Thanks!
