I want something simple.

I have a folder with 10 images and I would like to grab all of them, place each in a single "page" and into a single pdf file.

Is there a simple GUI-based software for this? Using Windows 7 x64.

If you have Office 2010, you can create a word document, drag-drop each picture to a separate page, and save as a PDF.

If you don't, have 2010 (I can't recall if 2007 has pdf creation ability), you can install PDF Creator (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/) and do the same thing, just "printing" to the new PDF printer.

UPDATE:

Found info on 2007. In Office 2007 there's a downloadable add-in from MS that allows creating PDFs: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7

Openoffice or libreoffice can do the same. –  Nifle Feb 23 '12 at 15:44
    
I have Office 2007 and no "save as PDF" option. Drats! Downloading 2010 now... –  Only Bolivian Here Feb 23 '12 at 15:45
    
@Benoit, you'll see I added that as an update a few hours ago. Thx for the comment though. –  music2myear Feb 23 '12 at 19:16
    
@music2myear sorry, hadn't seen it. –  Benoit Feb 23 '12 at 19:20

Under a bash or a cmd shell (works with both CMD and bash, awesome!), with ImageMagick and pdftk:

mkdir pdf_pages
mogrify -format pdf -output-directory pdf_pages *.jpg
cd pdf_pages
pdftk *.pdf cat output ASSEMBLY.PDF

Addition: In fact, it is much more simple with ImageMagick alone:

convert *.jpg assembly.pdf

is all you need. Note: mogrify is meant to change image content, whereas convert puts unaltered contents into different file formats.

I should have specified but I do not want a non-GUI application. –  Only Bolivian Here Feb 23 '12 at 18:31

Actually why don't you want it? Is that for end users, or is it just that you dislike it? If you dislike it, still it's powerful and there are ways to make it more friendly. –  Benoit Feb 23 '12 at 18:34
    
Imagemagick is definitely the quickest and easiest way to take care of this for sure. Although a standard windows user is going to be put off by all this fancy command line stuff –  Ryan Wiancko Feb 26 '13 at 21:11
    
You probably need something like -units PixelsPerInch -density 180 added to convert as well. And you cannot make, for example, a Letter (8.5″×11″) document out of 3:4 images. –  musiphil Jul 11 at 18:07

CutePDF Writer creates a virtual printer that will save your "print" to PDF. This works with any application that has a print function, you just specify the CutePDF Printer as your virtual printer and print.

  1. Install PdfCreator from here.
  2. Open one of images in windows picture viewer.
  3. Click print (Ctrl+p).
  4. In the window select all images.
  5. In printer option, select pdfCreator.

Can you post a screenshot - I just have one image in the print dialog (Windows 8) –  FiveO Mar 18 '13 at 10:50

The best option I have found for this problem is FreePic2Pdf. (Note that the page is in Chinese, so I recommend you run it through a translator if you don't understand Chinese.) An English version of the program is available here.

A key difference this offers compared to the others is it doesn't recompress the images if possible. In particular, JPEG images are stored rather than recompressed. The benefit of this is there is no loss in quality or compression for these file types.

Besides that, it also appears to have various other useful features and be quite customisable.

Note that it appears to only be free for non-commercial use.
