I need to combine multiple partial screenshots into the same file with Greenshot. I would rather prefer that file to be .pdf. Since I do not think greenshot allows creation of pdf files, I am okay with JPEG or PNG format as well, as long as resulting file is readable.

  • Have you checked the Greenshot Help? You might find the section on "adding graphics to a screenshot" to be interesting... Mar 16 '18 at 18:51
  • I did, it just adds any window or picture on top of the picture in hand. What I need is a .pdf-like file consisting of various screenshots.

    Why not just paste your screenshots sequentially into Word, Publisher, or PowerPoint? Microsoft Office, since Office 2010 at least, has supported save-as-PDF. Mar 16 '18 at 18:56
  • @JeffZeitlin I do not have it installed in my computer now. I will try that as the last option.

    LibreOffice - probably most OpenForks - can also export as PDF. Mar 16 '18 at 19:00

As of now, Greenshot does not support combination of multiple images into one document (except adding an image onto a screenshot).

Windows 10 allows "printing" multiple images into a PDF file, though. For earlier Windows versions, you'll probably need 3rd party software like PDFtk. (I have not tried it, but from the website it seems it could do the job, plus it is free and open source. This superuser answer lists some more tools.)

If you're familiar with the windows command line, it should even be possible to use Greenshot's external command plugin to send screenshots directly to the PDFtk command line interface.

  • Thanks for the definitive answer! It seems like something which should be possible in the built in image editor, but the image editor only has resize image which stretches stuff.
