How to Convert Photo Files to PDF and JPEG

Photo files come in a number of formats, including JPEG, TIFF, BMP and PNG. You can use photo editing software or a conversion tool to convert such files to PDF or JPEG, which is one of the most regularly used photo formats. If you already own photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop, convert a file to both PDF and JPEG directly. Even the Windows’ preinstalled drawing program, Paint, will convert image files to JPEG. To convert to PDF, you may download a third-party image-to-PDF converter.
