As all schools and colleges are closed due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19, most of us need to submit documents, school projects or even government documents for their studies by designated departments frequently online. Taking photos is the easiest way to send the file and most of us use the built-in camera app to do so. However, most websites only allow one PDF file to be uploaded. So, how do you combine multiple images into a single PDF? If you have an Android phone, it probably doesn’t have a built-in method, so we’ll be using a third-party app that will let you do that in a few easy steps. So without wasting time, let’s see how to convert multiple images into a single PDF document.
Convert Multiple Images to One PDF on Android
We will be using PDF CONVERTER which is an open source app that you can find on both F-Droid and Play Store. The app is free and you can download it from the above links. Once downloaded and installed, open the application from the list of applications.
Here are some of the additional features that the app offers.
- Merge multiple PDF files.
- Compress a PDF file.
- Convert Zip to PDF.
- Split PDF file.
The app has many features listed on the main page which we will come to later. Once the application is open, from the Create a new PDF section, click Images to PDF.
From the following menu, tap Select photos to open the photo gallery. Now select the photos you want to add by clicking on the upper right corner of each photo. Once done, click certainly in the lower right corner of the screen.
You will notice that the option to create PDF is enabled, click on it. It is optional to give the file a new name. You can either keep the default address or use a specific file address as I did in the image below. After you give it an address, tap on “OK“.
If you see a green check mark on the next page, it means that you have successfully combined the images into the PDF file. To view the PDF, tap Open PDF. That’s it, you have successfully combined the images into the PDF file.
OTHER PDF CONVERTER FEATURES
Although it is a free app, it has a lot of useful PDF features that you can use to edit your PDF file. The most useful of these is the Password Protect PDF feature, which allows you to password-lock your file to make it more secure. There is also an image editing option where you can crop and rotate the image. If you want to preview a PDF file before merging the images together, there is a Preview PDF option on the same tab.
By the way, I’ve successfully combined fifty images into a PDF file, and there is no limit to the number of images you can choose to combine.
These were some of the additional features that came in handy. But that is not all, it has a lot of features like compress images, add border, reorder image, enable page numbers, watermark, etc.
I hope that with these steps you will be able to combine photos easily. Now, whether you want to send important documents to the company or a school project for your child, follow these steps and you will have a PDF file in no time. The application has only one drawback, that is, it has an advertising banner at the top. But since you can use it offline, the ads won’t be messy.
