Hello!
My teacher sent out a book excerpt that I need to print and read. Each page is a separate jpeg that I don't know how to manipulate to print properly.
I'm not excellent with computers and so I *think* I need to convert it to pdf, but I'm not sure. An internet search tells me maybe something like cutepdf might work, but I think it might also be over my head. Is this easy to use? Is this what I need to be doing?
Regrettably, I don't have a lot of time in which to do this. It's a last minute assignment, and I always need twice as long as everyone else to figure out computer stuff.
Any suggestions or assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Anyone who likes IT Crowd will appreciate that I'm similar to the character Jen in my understanding of the computers.

Yes, CutePDF Writer is very easy to use. Just run the CuteWriter.exe installer. Once CutePDF Writer is installed, load the jpeg into your favorite graphics program, and select print. When the print dialog window opens up, select the CutePDF Writer as the printer and click the print button. The save dialog window will open asking for a folder and a file name. Select a folder and provide a name if you don't like the default, then click the Save button.

With multiple jpegs, using Windows Explorer(not Internet Explorer), you could select all of the jpegs you want to print by holding the Ctrl key down while you click/select each jpeg you wish to convert to a PDF. Once you have the ones you want highlighted, right click on the first one selected and choose print from the context menu. This will allow you to print/save(using CutePDF Writer) all the selected files into one(single) PDF file.

That was easy! Now I have 47 pdfs to print out, which is rather tedious, but at least I can print them out now.
Thank you! :flowers:

Part of the problem solved. Let's see about taking some of that tediousness out of the picture.

Using Windows Explorer, select several of the pdfs you've created by holding down the Ctrl key while you leftclick on each one of the pdfs you want to print, 5 of them would be a good number to start with. Once you have all 5 of the ones you chose highlighted, rightclick on the first one of those 5 highlighted and select "Print" from the context menu. Those 5 pdfs should be sent to the printer.

Thank you so much - that worked brilliantly! :cool:
I was really scared it would break my printer, but it didn't seem to mind at all. The rest of my semester is going to be better. I get about 100 pages a week from this professor that I have to squint and read from the screen. Now I can print and highlight and take to class - I'm so happy! :bunny2:

Glad you're set. Keep an eye on the ink levels though. At a 100 pages a week that ink is going to go fast.
