    Question PDF question

    I'm hoping someone here might know how to do this. I have several JPEGs that I would like to group together into a single PDF file. Acrobat is way too expensive for me just to do this. Is there any cheap program or shareware or freeware or any combination thereof that would allow me to create a single PDF from several JPEGs? I use a Mac.

    If you're running OSX, Assemble your images in any program that allows multiple page files, select "print" and then "save as PDF".

    If you're running 9 or earlier (which I suspect, because otherwise it would be too damn easy), Adobe used to have an on-line "make PDF" service. I don't know the details, but a few seconds of Googling should get you the info.

    Yeah.. Adobe still has that service and your able to access it from their site. You'll need to register with them though. I use it a lot.

    Just place all your images into a Word document (for example.. or the mac equvalent) and upload it to adobe. They will email you a ,pdf a few hours later. Pretty nice

    Lµ<yˆ?or the quick replies.

    Yes, I'm currently using Mac OS 9.2. And just to make things even more difficult on myself, I don't have any word processing programs like Word either. I have tried Print2PDF, but I haven't yet figured out if theres a way to make a single PDF from several JPEGs with that program; all I can do now is make single page PDFs from single JPEGs.

    Simpletext might be able to handle it. If not, there are a bunch of shareware word processors out there.

    Success!

    I loaded the JPEGs into the freeware program iTEXT and saved it to PDF format by using the shareware program PrintToPDF and it worked! Thanks to all for the help!
