Why convert multiple JPGs into a PDF? The benefits.

PDFs have a universal format that makes documents easy to send, receive, and read. Due to the simplicity of the media, it’s actually quite effortless to merge JPGs into one PDF, containing all the images you want to send.

You can preview the document before sending it and check all the intended images are present and correct, rather than uploading them individually to an email and risking forgetting to attach one.

PDFs also use lossless compression, which means the quality of your JPGs won’t visibly suffer when you convert them. Extremely useful when you want to ensure fine detail translates for an important work assignment, for example.

Once you’ve created your PDF, we have a selection of tools to help maximise its potential. Need to make some final changes? Our Edit PDF tool lets you make those last-minute adjustment.
