    Im trying to create a pdf from separate pages in picture format (or print them).

    The first problem is that when I open them all the thumbnails are not in order (My file names are named 001, 002, 003 etc..) but preview just randomize their order.

    The second problem is that when i make a print preview the page is too small in the actual print page, so small you cant read it! I tried to go into page setup and put 400% scale. it does scale the image at the correct size but it creates like 10 blank pages! just for one of thepictures. I think it scales all the white space too, but there is NO whitespace in my picture (page) so i dont know why it does that!

    and the last problem is that I havent figured out how to print all the slides in the thumbnails. would I have to print one by one?? or how can I print them all?

    I was thinking in making a macro in word that imports each picture and scale it but I dontknow anything about how to achieve that.

    Are you trying to combine pdfs into one pdf file?
    There is a program available from VersionTracker and at the souce

    if that is what you are attempting. You can pull the pdf files into any order then it will write out one file with the name you choose.

    I am not very sure what you are trying to do. But as I gather, if you want to put all your thumbnails in one page and make a pdf file, you can do the following. Open a word document (MS word or even appleworks i think), paste all your pictures in there, you can change the size of the pictures as you wish. Then click print. In the dialogues window there would be an option 'save as pdf' , so you can then save the page as pdf file.
    I hope I understood you correctly and it helps
