4.)Click "Add" to select the image files that you want to add the pdf file.

  4. That's my first Automator workflow. I had read a lot about the power of Automator, but that crystallised it as a real process. Very, very impressive.
    Tx for posting the steps.

  33. Here’s how I convert multiple jpgs into one pdf file;
    1. Make sure all of the jpg’s that you want to save as one pdf are in a file folder in the order that you want them.
    2. Highlight all of them and then right-click and select Open in Preview. In the Preview window, click on the 1st thumbnail, and then hold down the Shift button and highlight all of the remaining thumbnails.
    3. With all of the thumbnail pages highlighted, now click on the File menu and click on Print.
    4. When the Print menu opens, you should notice that it is set to print multiple pages. Click the drop-down button in the lower left corner of the menu, and click on Save as PDF. All of the pages will be saved as a single pdf file.

  35. Why not try this website, https://online2pdf.com/convert-images-to-pdf ?
    Drag and drop your multiple image files to the website.
    Set the "MODE" drop-down menu to "convert files separately".
    Click the "Image-to-PDF" option.
    Click "Convert.
    The new PDF files are then downloaded to your computer.
    Open & unzip.
