JPEG is a bitmap format with a lossy compression method. It is ideal for web graphics because it presents the image in a high quality meanwhile reducing its size suitable to be transferred via the Internet. JPEG is not good for documents though. Those image files that contain text, embedded fonts, charts, etc. are easier to be saved in the PDF format. PDF allows such documents to look sharp, clear, be enlarged without looking blurry. PDF is ideal for storing image files in a device and resolution independent way – you can view the image on a PC or on a huge screen, and the image will be displayed in exactly the same way. PDF is more advantageous for printing purposes as well – what you see on the computer screen will be exactly what you will see on the paper. PDF also protects your files from being altered, so situations when JPEG should be converted to PDF are numerous.

Make your images more portable by converting them from JPEG to PDF
ImageConverter Plus can convert your images from JPEG to PDF making them more portable. You can convert a single image or hundreds of images simultaneously and more easily distribute them when they are in PDF. Although the basic image conversion parameters are set with the software by default there are more advanced options for professionals, such as choosing compression method (LZW, flate, fax), color depth (from monochrome to 24-bit true color) and setting a multipage option when applicable. When dealing with multipage PDFs you can save your file as several separate pages, as one multipage file, leaving it as it is or adding your converted file to an existing multipage image.
Making the unreadable readable
One of our co-workers once encountered a problem. After buying an underwater dive computer he discovered that the user manual was missing. “Never mind, he thought – the Internet will be there to help”. He did find the user manual quite easily; except the file he found was completely unreadable. The quality of the scanned text was so poor that he had no chance to figure out the contents. Frustrating, isn’t it? But not so if you use ImageConverter Plus. Low quality of the scanned texts, and as a result difficulty in figuring out their contents is usually related to a low image contrast. This may be caused by the text written on low quality paper, or the low quality scanning equipment. The reason is not so important though. What is important is that ImageConverter Plus can solve this problem. Use ImageConverter Plus to make a scanned text of a poor quality sharp and clear, and you will be surprised by the result. Now you will be able to read what has just seemed unreadable. To make things more convenient convert your file into the PDF format to combine all the pages of a file into one single multipage document.
Convert JPEG images into a single multipage PDF. The example below shows how to convert a batch of JPEG images into a single multipage PDF file using “flate” compression method and specifying the name of the output image.
