How Do You Convert a JPG to PDF?

If you’re looking to convert a JPG image to PDF with the click of a button, read on!

Converting a JPG to PDF file gives you two main benefits:

  1. You can compress the PDF document, which means you’ll get a smaller file size than you would with JPG images.
  2. When you convert and compress PDF files your image quality will be preserved. This is not the cased with JPG images.

You’ll likely want to convert to PDF files since JPGs are not ideal for reading. Despite this, many hard-copy documents are scanned, which means they are made up of multiple JPG files. After you download such a document, if you want to read it on a device or print it out, you’re better off converting it to PDF format first.

We’re here to help. Read on to find out a few methods to convert a JPG image to a PDF.

How to convert JPG to PDF on the internet

The first (and maybe the easiest) way to convert JPG files into a PDF file is to do it using a web-based PDF convert tool from a site like Soda PDF. It’s a simple drag-and-drop app that will allow you to select and convert your JPGs with one click.

This will work no matter what platform you’re using – Windows 10, macOS, Android or iOS. All you need is a browser and an internet connection to open.
