Convert Photos To PDF

Converting multiple photos into single pdf documents has several advantages. A single file can be stored and managed more comfortable and it's also easier to distribute them without running into the problem of missing photos in the process. One interesting use would be for instance to convert photos that have been taken on the last holiday into one pdf document to send the document to friends and relatives.

Zilla JPG To PDF Converter is a software program for the Windows operating system that has been designed for this exact purpose. It can be used to convert multiple photos into a single pdf document. The process itself has been streamlined for ease of use. It actually takes less than a minute to configure the program to turn selected photos into a pdf document. The time it takes to create the pdf document itself depends largely on the amount and quality of the selected photos and the processing power of the computer system.

Only two steps are mandatory and a few additional ones option. The mandatory steps are to select photos or folders containing photos that should be included int the pdf document and to initiate the conversion by pressing the convert to pdf now button.

Optional steps include selecting a document title, author, creation date, subject, keywords, the output path and the compression quality.

The result is a pdf document that is made up of all the photos that have been selected during the selection process.

Zilla JPG To PDF Converter is an easy to use program that can create pdf documents showing selected photos in no time. The developer could improve it further by allowing layouts added to the pages that can contain text or other objects. An option to select several photos from one folder simultaneously is also missing as it is only possible to either select one photo or a folder full of photos in the application.

The software program is available at the developer's website. It is there available for most Microsoft Windows operating systems including Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

    hi!but what is the advantage, compared to a zipped folder?

      Well unless your image viewer can view the contents of zipped folders you have to open the images on by one. It is easier to send a pdf file to users as they know what to do with it than to send a zipped folder to them, in most cases anyway.

    There's absolutely no advantage when compared to using a "comic book" format like CBZ (zipped) or CBR (RARed); comic book viewers like CDisplay can view them as a sequential list of images, and opening them with a ZIP manager like IZArc or 7Zip (just change the extension from CBZ to ZIP, or CBR to RAR if you need to) will let you extract the images. Plus, most PDF file creators (Acrobat, or one of the dozens of PDF printer drivers available) resample the images, losing quality, and it is harder to extract the images (most extractors convert them to BMP files, meaning you will lose quality when you convert them back to JPG files).

    If the person you're sending the images to can't handle a ZIP file, they probably won't be able to do much with the images anyway.

    YOu could drag a bunch of photo's into Word and then save as PDF also. Plus you would be able to annotate the photo's and add other effects in Word also.

      JoJo that's actually a good point that you make. Was not there an update that you need to install to add pdf export?

  4. Jojo November 5, 2009 at 6:40 am #

    Martin - The update was needed to do a direct PDF save from Word 2007.

    But you could also do whatever you want to do in Word and then do a standard PRINT to PDF using one of the many softwares that do this.
