Quick tips for exporting screenshots to PDFs.

Converting your JPG screenshot to a PDF can differ depending on where you're doing it. Below outlines a few different scenarios, but at the end of the day, you want to look for a Save As or Export feature to get the job done. These features can typically be found through a Print option.

  1. On iPhone. Open your iPhone Photos app, select the photo you want to PDF, and then click the Share icon. Choose Print and zoom in on the image to open it in a PDF viewer. From there, you can save it to your iPhone files as a PDF.
  2. On Android. Save your screenshot in your Google Photos app. Open the app and click on the three vertical dots at the top right corner of your image. Choose Print. This will show a preview of your PDF, and here you can select your paper size, which for this purpose, will be your image’s saved size. Select Save as PDF once you've got your sizing right.
  3. On Mac. Open your image with the Preview app. In the top left, click File, and then Export as PDF.
  4. On Windows. Right-click on your image. Hover over the Open With option and select photos. Select the Print icon, and in the printer drop-down menu, select Microsoft Print to PDF.
