How to Transform Images into Pdf

Would you like to create a PDF document using some JPG, PNG or GIF images you downloaded from the Internet? There is nothing easier, believe me. There are now many applications available - and even some online services - that allow you to transform images into PDF without spending a euro and without wasting time.

If you don't believe it, take a few minutes of free time, take a look at the software and online services that I am about to recommend and use them following the instructions that you find below. I assure you that in no time you will be able to create perfect PDFs, compatible with any device and application for reading PDFs, starting from your photos and / or images you have downloaded from the Internet.

The choice between traditional software and online services is quite simple: if you don't feel like downloading new programs and / or installing them on your PC, use the online services. If, on the other hand, you have a very slow connection and / or you need to work on documents that contain sensitive data, turn to the classic offline solutions. The results will be excellent regardless of the solution adopted.

Transform Images to PDF Online

Let's start with a number of online services that allow you to transform images into PDF directly from the browser. They are completely free (at least in the basic versions), do not require mandatory registration and protect the privacy of users by deleting all the files that are uploaded to their servers within hours of uploading. Despite this, I don't feel like recommending them if you need to convert files that contain sensitive data (eg personal information, secret work projects, and so on). When dealing with sensitive data it is always better to rely on offline solutions - or in any case solutions over which you have full control.

Online2PDF

If you want to create a PDF file starting from various types of images (e.g. JPG, PNG or GIF) you can contact Online2PDF: a free online service without registration that allows you to process up to 20 files at a time for a total of 100MB per conversion .

To transform your photos into PDF documents, then linked to the Online2PDF home page, drag the images to convert onto the button Select files (or click on the latter and select the images "manually") and use the mouse to reorder the photos to include in the PDF.

At this point, select the tab Image to PDF and use the menus that appear below to set the page layout, the number of images per page which must be included in the PDF, i page margins and all other parameters of the output document.

In conclusion, press the button Converted, wait a few seconds for the document to be processed and wait for it to be downloaded to your PC.
