How to Convert JPEG to PDF Using Acrobat

By K.C. Winslow

JPEG is one of the most common file formats for digital images. "JPEG compresses graphics of photographic color depth better than competing file formats like GIF, and it retains a high degree of color fidelity. This makes JPEG files smaller and therefore quicker to download," according to CNET. The Portable Document Format is a file format that combines images and text in the same document. Adobe Acrobat, a PDF-creation program, can convert JPEG files into PDF files.

Step 1

Go to the "File" menu in Adobe Acrobat. Highlight "Create PDF" and select "From File."

Step 2

Locate the JPEG you want to convert using the "Open" menu that appears on the screen. Highlight the file and click "Open."

Step 3

Save the JPEG as a PDF by going to the "File" menu and selecting "Save." Use the menu to assign a name and save location for the PDF. Click the "Save" button to complete the process.
