PDF in depth

There are different situations when your JPEG files should be converted to PDF. PDF format is sometimes a strict requirement for official online documents – JPEGs will simply not be accepted. Converting JPEG images into PDF offers some advantages. JPEGs are generally not good for small images or images with textual data. PDF on the other hand is more of a document format than an image format. Because of its high quality, ease of printing, relatively small file size, and widespread use, it is an attractive format for displaying images. ImageConverter Plus enables the users to convert their JPEG images into PDF files. The software offers several color depth options. PDF files can be saved with color depth equal to 1 bit (monochrome), 4 bits (16 colors), 8 bits (256 colors) and 24 bits (millions of colors). Color depth identifies the number of bits used to describe the color of a single pixel. The bit depth determines the number of colors that can be displayed at one time. Keep in mind that the more bits used to create an image, the larger the image file size becomes. You should always ask yourself if you need to have a 24-bit PDF file that will make it difficult to store, load or transmit down a distributed network. For most purposes, 8-bit images allow sufficient image quality and still maintain a reasonable file size.
