If you deal with thousands of photos like I do, it can sometimes become a hassle when trying to view them, whether it’s on your phone, tablet (my preferred method), or computer. For productive purposes, as well as portability for viewing and carrying your large digital photo collections, there’s no better way than to store and view them in pdf files. Creating pdf files from large amounts of photos can however be a time consuming nightmare.
Today I finally got tired of manually creating documents for my photos, and photo collections from various online sources that I collect photos from, and so I went google searching for a simple and FREE photo to pdf converter. It is called Image To PDF Or XPS. It’s a software written by Jesse Yeager and it’s a super simple .exe program (no installation).
I am using this on a Windows 10 Dell laptop, however I assume it will work on older versions of Windows as well.
You just click on the .exe file wherever you are storing it on your computer (I recommend pinning it to your taskbar or desktop), choose your settings (either by photo size which is the best option for clean looking pdf’s if your images all have the same width, or by page size in which the program will size your images to fit your chosen page size). Then click the save output button, and in almost no time at all, you get a fast result with a great looking pdf.
Keep in mind that the more photos you add to each pdf, the larger the file size will be. There doesn’t seem to be a compression option for photos in this software, so if you need to save file space, you will want to compress your photos before converting to pdf.
Don’t waste your time searching google if you need to convert photos to a pdf file. You’re just gonna end up getting frustrated with all the “try before you buy” converters out there like I did, so just take my advice and use this software.
I was really impressed with how easy this is to use. So impressed in fact that after playing around with it’s settings a couple of times and getting some great pdf results, I sent the program creator a donation because I know in the coming months, or hopefully years, I will surely appreciate this sweet little program and I recommend it to anyone needing a simple solution for turning photos into pdf files.
If you aren’t already using pdf as a solution for managing your photo collections, then I recommend giving it a try. It’s a great way to create digital photo albums not only for personal use, but also for sharing to friends and family, or even selling your own digital ebooks.
