To load image files you would like to convert click the Add button on the Toolbar. You will be able to load a series of images stored on your computer HDD.

To load a folder with images stored on your computer HDD click the black arrow next to the Add button and select the Add Folder option.

In the opened window browse for the necessary files or folder and press the Open button. All loaded images will be displayed in the Preview Area.

If you plan to save all the images to a single document, you need to set the necessary order of your images. You can perform this task within the Preview Area when the Thumbnails mode is activated. Click the image which is required to be moved and then drag and drop it to the desired position.

Step 3: Set output PDF format and adjust its settings

Press the To Pdf button on the Conversion tab to set the output image format. Pay attention to the opened Pdf settings located under the format buttons.

Select the needed Page Format from the appropriate drop-down list. You can select one of the standard presets or the By Image Size option. If you choose this option the Resize section of the Conversion tab will be available and you will be able to resize your images as you want. To do that you can use one of the available presets from the drop-down list in the Resize section or click the Advanced >> button to set a particular size manually.

The In one document option is checked by default. Don't uncheck it if you need to merge all the images into a single multipage file. Then type the output file name in the File Name field (in this case the Rename section of the Conversion tab will be disabled).
