How to convert an image to PDF with Light Image Resizer

Post by Celine [ObviousIdea] »

Here is a quick guide to convert your pictures in PDF.

First, add a picture or a folder clicking the top left side button:
(You can use the drag & drop too)
Picture1.jpg (10.67 KiB) Viewed 2178 times

When you are ready, click on Next at the bottom (or on Options)
Click on "More Options..." to see all tabs available as below and select "Create PDF
Picture2.jpg (18.81 KiB) Viewed 2128 times

The PDF tab will appear:
Picture3.jpg (15.5 KiB) Viewed 2047 times

Now you can choose the output page size among existing profiles or create your own selecting "Custom". You can either choose "inches" (in) or "centimeters" (cm).

I use the french version, but let's try in english ;)

I'm looking for a way to convert all the images (jpeg) of a directory into a unique multipage PDF. Light Image Resizer show me an option that seems to be the one I'm looking for, but it's to pretty to be true : an error occurs.

Conclusion : Maybe Light Image Resizer does not what I need or I am really bad at using it. I hope the second option is the only true, so let me explain what I do :

I select the directory (all from the same directory) that contains the picts to be resized and converted.

Options : A picture will be more expressive : (the insert does not seem to work with it)
=> I don't really understand why the folder has a .pdf extension :(

Effects : none
publish : no
pdf : automatic (the goal behind this is to include this manipulation into a script that will launch this process for different directories, so I can't really specify...)

And so, the error shows me (The directory ### is not the real name) :

Naming it from the name of the directory would be the best, but there's no such indication in the Filename Mask's help screen, and I might ask to much too :D

Anyway, if somebody can help me to do right...

Drive D: is a normal hard drive? Is there enough free space available?

Maybe you could try with just one image, and report if that works...

Thanks for your support :)

There is close to 172 GB free on D:
I've made some other tests, and it looks like all is just well when I cancel the parameter "recreate folder structure on destination". So there's no more trouble with one pict or one folder.

Maybe I can indicate you for a futur update of the soft : If a folder containing folders containing pictures is selected, the option "create a PDF" will create one PDF with all the pictures from all the directories. In my opinion, it's not really usefull : in this case, the user can group all the picts in one directory and launch the process. But If we could activate the parameter to "recreate folder structure on destination", the goal would be to create one PDF by directory containing pictures. To have a best use of that, a filename mask should be added in the soft, that could name the file like the folder containing the pictures, witch we add a manual extension, by exemple %PictFolder-convert.pdf, where %PictFolder is the name of the folder containing a group of images and "-convert" the part I choose to add on my PDF's name.

This could be really usefull for photographer by exemple, or people who tries, like me, with their capability, to virtualise their own libraries.

Thank your for this soft, it is very easy to use and it does just well :)

Ok, in fact it was creating a folder with the same name as the PDF, so it couldn't be saved. I fixed this nasty bug.

Please try with the latest version.

Also thanks for your suggestion, it will be considered for further improvement!
