How do I convert a JPG to a PDF file?
If you have Windows 8.1 or later, you will have a built-in PDF printer. If you’re still using a previous version (which you shouldn’t be all support has now ended) then download and install Adobe Reader DC to get the identical function.
We are using Windows 10 here, which has a built-in alternative to publish’ into a PDF. This implies that in any program with a Print option you can pick a printer called Microsoft Print to PDF and it will save that document as a PDF. Very convenient.
- Navigate to the JPG document (s) you would like to convert. Obviously the files need to be in precisely the same folder. Choosing multiple files will make a multi-page PDF document.
- Now right-click on some of the selected files and choose Print.
- This opens up Windows’ built-in picture printing wizard. Here you need to change the printer into Microsoft Print to PDF. If that is missing from the list, install Adobe Reader DC as mentioned above.
- You can use the options available in the wizard to place multiple pictures on each page of this PDF, and even change the page size from A4 to another size.
- As soon as you’ve set all your choices click Publish.
You will see the printing progress happening just as if the file was being printed normally but at the conclusion, a box will pop up asking where you want to store your PDF. You will also need to enter a record name.
Click the Save button and your PDF will be generated, ready to share with anyone you like.
Yes. There are a lot of sites where you could upload your JPG files and convert them to a single PDF. Or you may create a PDF from a single picture.

- Follow on the link above to visit the website and drag and drop your own JPGs or click the Upload Files button.
- If your files are all uploaded, then click the COMBINED button that ought to really say’Download’ as that’s exactly what it does.
You might have to edit the filename after it’s downloaded as it defaults to jpg2pdf.pdf.
