How to combine multiple jpg scans into one PDF
Posted by: tuqqer

Anyone ever figure out a way to take multiple jpg scans (of a lease in this case) and turn them into one PDF document.

I could redo the scans as PDFs if that would help. I can actually get Preview to open up all the scanned pages at once and it appears like it's all one document. But when I go to save, it just saves the top page.

Never mind. I figured out how to do it with Acrobat Pro.

I'm presuming you can't do it with Preview...

Import (place or something like that) into WORD and then make a pdf out of the WORD doc.

I Leopard Preview just drag the additional ones on top of the first one. You may have to do it on the sidebar.

I can do that drag method, and they all show up in the sidebar and appear like they're now one doc, but when I go to Save As, only one page gets saved.

I've done that many times with Appleworks. It even lets me change the size to the images. I can't recall if I got them there by dragging or via copy and paste. I should think that you can do that with many word processors.

I use either Acrobat or pdflatex depending on the needs of the project.

This can be done in Automator. I wrote an app fairly quickly.

I THINK that after you do that (convert jpg to pdf) you can do it again--joining the pdfs in Preview to get what you want.

In Preview I just drag all images into the sidebar, then select all in the sidebar, and print to PDF.





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

I do this almost daily. I use a PDF merger driver found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable merger option.Then you can merge PDFs to one in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat . Just open PDF files, select merge, the task will be finished in several seconds. if you haven't found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.

I give up. How does one "print to PDF?" All I see (after selecting ten jpgs) is "print" in the File pull-down.

Now, I HAVE figured out how to do this, though it is not 100% obvious. When I choose "print" from the file pull-down, in the lower left there is a "save to PDF" button. It works!

But how are others seeing "print to PDF?"
