This application converts JPG files to PDF documents

This application converts JPG files to PDF documents. It’s a PERL5 program, which means that you can use it in various operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, AIX, SGI, and many others.
The tool has a simple and easy-to-use interface. When you first open it, the Settings window pops up, allowing you to adjust the paper’s style and layout, the type of encoding, the transition effects from one image to another, the scale, and the border. You can also check some options that help you create albums, center the image, or apply a full screen effect. With the Custom tab, you can modify some other details regarding the PDF’s author, title, subject, and keywords. To use the program, you just need to select the images that you want to convert. A nice thing is that the program has an ability to add and convert multiple images at once into a single PDF document.

In conclusion, this is a classic application for converting JPG to PDF files. However, I personally dislike that the developers didn't improve the tool’s interface. There are some other drawbacks, such as the limitation of the source file type to .jpg format, or the lack of a preview window. The scaling action seems also difficult to use, because you don’t have enough options to adjust the image to the PDF. In my opinion, there are similar programs that provide a modern appearance and which are much more efficient.
