Free program / tool to convert multiple images into a single PDF

Is there any free converter available which will convert multiple JPEG files and dump them in a single PDF file?

The reason for this is I have multiple scanned JPEG files which I want to dump as a single PDF. I am not scanning the image as TIFF files because it takes a huge amount of space.

Use a virtual PDF printer together with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer or Microsoft Office Picture Manager. The Windows Photo Printing Wizard will guide you through the process of selecting images to be printed from the directory.

The following article from novaPDF explains the process in great detail:
Convert JPG to PDF (or other image formats to PDF)
(this will work with any PDF printer, not just novaPDF)

If you are looking for a tool in GNU/Linux, ImageMagick is a very good option.

The conversion is very simple. First install imagemagick using apt-get and execute this command.

convert *.jpg file.pdf

Image magick is a wonderful tool with lot of features. You can check it out at: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php

You can use CutePDF as a PDF printer.

Win Vista and 7 have built in functionality for printing multiple pictures

Otherwise you can use something like Picasa or IrfanView to print multiple pics at once.

All the above are free.

a more programming related approach: use xsl-fo and fop to produce excellent pdfs:

  <fo:external-graphic src="url('image1.jpg')" />
  <fo:external-graphic src="url('image2.jpg')" />

have a look at some examples.

quick idea: make a little .html page where you list the images, open that .html in a browser and then "print" it to .pdf via any decent pdf-printer.

but you will then suffer from all the quirks and annoyances that browsers produce when printing. I would rather use a proper image manipulation program than a browser engine. Just my 2p ! –  Shevek Apr 28 '10 at 7:24
    
i am aware of that fact, hence the "quick idea" and hence the +1 for your answer. –  akira Apr 28 '10 at 8:22
