I recently created a PDF file from a bunch of images (all of format gif except one of format jpe). In an image viewer, all images are of the same size and resolution. However, after I converted them into a single PDF, the page of the original jpe image appears smaller in size/resolution than all other pages. How can I fix this problem?


The PDF file is created using imagemagick under linux.

  • What software are you using to create the PDF? If we don't know that, there is no way we can help. – lzam Sep 24 '14 at 0:55
  • Do you have a zip file with all images and pdf that was created? What command line parameters did you use in image magick to create the pdf? – Sun Sep 26 '14 at 6:30
  • @sunk818: No zip file. All images were saved in a directory and the PDF file was simply produced using convert * output.pdf with no other options. – reflectionalist Sep 27 '14 at 12:32
  • @reflectionalist Your problem is too specific. Unless you can give us files for us to analyze, it would be hard to say. – Sun Sep 27 '14 at 13:41

You could try and create the document in MS Word and then save it as a PDF I have never run into problems that way.


While the resolution of the image files being combined may be the same, the DPI might differ. Resaving the problematic images with the same resolution but also the same DPI corrected the issue when I combined them again.

I stumbled upon this 5 year old question when I encountered the same issue. I solved my problem and thought it would be nice to contribute so that the next person to find this thread has a solution.
