How to convert JPG to PDF on a Mac.

Need to make a JPG file a PDF on macOS? With Adobe Acrobat conversion tools, you can change file type, share, and edit in no time. 

Can you convert a JPG to PDF on a Mac?

Yes. You can convert JPGs to a PDF on any web browser using Adobe Acrobat online services.  It’s easy to use this method to convert any JPG to a PDF in an instant and then save it to Adobe cloud storage, which will allow you to work anywhere from any device.

Reasons to convert a JPG to PDF.

PDFs are printer-friendly, and once converted, give you access to a wide array of printing options. You’ll be able to make size adjustments and customize with text or additional image files. 


You may want to combine multiple JPG images into a single PDF for easy sharing or to build a portfolio. PDFs are a highly secure file format that can be password-protected to avoid tampering. When they’re paired with Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can also collaborate with others with comments and feedback contained within the PDF itself.

Other Acrobat features to try.

Acrobat offers several other things to try after you’ve converted your image to a PDF: 

Powerful editing functionality.

Acrobat gives you the ability to edit your PDF — for example, you can easily adjust the visible area of pages in a PDF for uniform sizes and consistent, tidy documents.


Once you’ve got your PDFs, you can edit, customize, and annotate them in whatever way you need. You can add and edit text, batch convert, organize the order of your pages, split a document into multiple PDF pages, and run character recognition on text to make it searchable. Whatever way you need to modify a PDF, you can do it in Acrobat Pro. You can even convert to other file types, like HTML, PNG, TIFF, or Microsoft Excel, for example.   

Easy conversion and export.

Converting PDFs to other formats is fast and easy. You can convert PDFs to most Microsoft file formats, or back to an image of your choice. If you’re using Acrobat online tools, you can convert right back to a JPG image if you need. You’ll never have a problem working between various file formats and PDFs.

Collaborate, secure, and request signatures.

Documents are easy for you to share and collaborate with others securely. You can password-protect PDFs, which are then protected by advanced encryption to prevent tampering. For documents that might need a signature, you can use digitally verified e-signatures to reduce paper waste and speed up the time it takes to get documents taken care of.   


For collaboration, documents you create with Acrobat online tools are shareable and can be commented on by members of your team or anyone you want feedback from, and documents can be saved in other cloud storage apps like Google Drive or OneDrive. 


No matter what you need to do with your images, documents, and PDFs, Adobe tools can help. Learn from tutorials about the things you can do with a powerful PDF editor, or get started using Acrobat online tools now.
