Create PDF from JPG on Your Mac
If you use a Mac you can achieve the same result without using third party software - all you need is Preview, the default image and PDF viewing application included in OS X.
To generate a PDF with this software, gather all the images you want to include in the document within the same folder and open. If you don't know how to open multiple images at once, just select them all using the key combination cmd + a and double click on any of them. If you want to select only some images contained in the folder and not all, use the combination cmd+click.
When you start Preview, use your mouse to reorder the images in the program's sidebar - that will be the order that will be reflected in the final PDF. Finally, click on the thumbnail of any of the images opened in Preview, press the key combination cmd + a on the Mac keyboard (in order to highlight them all) and select the item Print from the menu Fillet.
In the window that opens, expand the drop-down menu PDF located at the bottom left, select the item Save as PDF and indicates the folder in which to export the final document. Mission accomplished! You now have a PDF containing all the images you have opened (and reordered) in Preview.
Please note: when you open the images in Preview, they should automatically be grouped in the same window. If this does not happen, move their thumbnails and drag them all into the same program window.
