Try CutePDF. Since it installs as a printer driver, you can then "print-to-pdf" from within any program that prints like Paint, Word, Internet Explorer, whatever. Simply print to your new CutePDF printer and CutePDF will pop-up and prompt you for the PDF filename you want to use and which folder you want to put it in.

Will CutePDF affect my default printer settings, or will it only pop up when I change printer settings within a document?

No, it won't affect your default printer settings. It only pops up when you select it as the printer.

It should not affect the default printer settings UNLESS you want it to be your default printer (i.e. say you want to go paperless, so to speak, and print everything to PDF rather than paper).

While I don't use that particular PDF printer, the PDF printer that I use (PrimoPDF) on my Windows machines (my Macs have it built-in) did not change my default printer.

Edit: The other overall option might be some sort of PDF editor that will actually open up JPGs and then allow you to save them as PDFs. I honestly don't know if there are any such PDF editors in the Windows world that will do that...but I have to believe that it is likely because I know it is possible. The Mac OS's built-in Preview app is meant primary as a PDF editor, but it will also open up image files (JPGs, TIFFs, etc) and allow you to save them as a PDF. So, I have to believe that there is at least one Windows program that will do that same out there in the world.

Adobe Photoshop can open a .jpg and then save it as a .pdf. (Note: Version 6 and older do not have this capability).

True...but then using Photoshop for this purpose is kind of like killing a fly with a sledgehammer.   :whistle:

I doubt someone would want to shell out the money needed for Photoshop just to save JPGs as PDFs.

It does suggest that there are likely other options...potentially free or rather low cost ones. Looks like Inkscape might be able to do it.

Son of a gun!  I've had Inkscape all along and never realized it could do PDF files. Just test-drived it and the results were great.  Thanks!

I know a method :

// Method to open PDF document file in C# project
public static REDocument OpenDocumentFile(string filePath);
public static REDocument OpenDocumentFile(string filePath, BaseDecoder dec);

// Method to save PDF document to image file in C# project
public static void SaveImageFile(REImage image, string filePath);
public static void SaveImageFile(REImage image, string filePath, BaseEncoder enc);

hello does someone have an idea for a program which you can permanently have on your computer for free that does these kind of things?

Currently ive been using http://convertjpgpdf.net/ but i dont have internet when i travel and i still need this for work...

Doesnt matter if its not entirely free, just not expensive -.-
