Creating PDF files from images

Creating PDF files from images is really easy to do with the ImageMagick suite installed. This software suite can handle over 100 different image formats and is essential to have if you manipulate large batches of images. It has all sorts of useful functions; translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale,  shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special  effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves.

 

  • Install imagemagick if it’s not present:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick

 

  • Convert some files into a PDF file:
convert file1.jpg file2.jpg document.pdf

or

convert *.jpg document.pdf
