Microsoft Paint can save pictures in several different formats, including bitmap (BMP), JPG, GIF and TIFF. You can easily convert all of these file formats to PDF with a free print-to-PDF program, such as PrimoPDF. There are two ways to convert from Paint to PDF: the first creates an actual-size picture with white space covering the rest of the page, and the second creates a full-page picture.
