A little tool to convert PNG or JP(E)G files to PDF

In the first place its meant to convert scans done with e.g. Scandal or Scanquix
to PDF Documents in certain output formats like A3,A4,A5, Legal,Letter or
Scansize, but can be used to convert other png or jp(e)g files too.

Image2PDF is "EmailWare" ;-) and free to use without any restrictions !!

If you use it and like the idea behind it :

Just send an email to me. :-)

Donations are always gratefully received

Btw :

Programming software is a very time intense process so if you want you can
support it/me by sending a small donation (for a beer ;-)) here :


Thank you .... :-)

History :

5th November 2022  --- V1.0
- initial release

12th November 2022 --- V1.1
- minor cleanups
- added AmigaOS3.x version (68k)
- added AmigaOS4.x version (PPC)

13th November 2022 --- V1.2
- its now possible to give the path of the picture to be converted via
- added AROS version (X86)
- added drawer and program icons for the different supported platforms
  (thanks Carlo ;-)) 
- added icons for AmiKit (thanks Jan and Ken;-))               

3rd January 2023 --- V1.3
- added icons from Carlo again which were accidently bad converted in V1.2
- corrected "Credits" in terms of the Amikit icon(s) ;-)
- the source folder and the save folder is now memorized when doing more than
  one picture to PDF
- added requester which asks if it is wanted to do more pictures to PDF
- added requester if the PDF file already exists (overwrite protection)
- on commandline/shell it is no longer neccesary to give the full path of the
  picture file
- its now checked if the PDF file to be saved ends with ".pdf"
- improved error message in case of invalid loaded picture/file
- added automatic closing of the viewer windows
- added Image2PDF as Hollywood Applet (at least Hollywood Player 9.1 has to
  be used)

9th Febuary 2023 --- V1.4
- added the possibility to add more images to a PDF document. (one to a page)
  The output format of all pages is chosen after giving the first image
- added a counter to the PDF filenames if the docs have more than one page
  (doc_1.pdf , doc_2.pdf .... etc. , can be edited)
- the name of the image is now taken as the name of the PDF document if
  the document has only one page, can be edited
- Polybios plugin is now linked to the binarys so that it is not needed
  anymore to install it seperately
- fixed guide file so that it can be opened again
- updated guide file
- added tooltype to set default source and/or save drawer. If it is not set
  there "ram:" is chosen as default. To set other drawers just remove the
  parentheses and change the default "ram:" entry to the path you want.
  Then save it to the icon
- fixed an issue which caused an offset positioning an image into a page
- improved icon handling. The name of the binary and its icon can be changed
  to "Image2PDF" or just left as it is with the OS specification.
- added possibility to give arguments and parameters with commandline
- added possibility to do "bulk" conversion to PDF via commandline
- minor cleanups

30th March 2023 --- V2.0
- jumping to V2.0 because this is an almost complete rewrite
- GUI created
- removed "bulk" conversion via commandline
- adapted tooltypes to GUI and icons (even for the applet)
- adapted the guide file to V2.0
- MorphOS only release

23rd April 2023 --- V2.1

- it is now possible to add images with uppercase extensions
- adapted code to get ready for AmigaOS3/4 and Aros
- adapted the guide file to V2.1

- added possible free registration (just send an email to get your key :-))
- switched output 180° to improve seeing what happens while converting
- improved handling of unvalid images
- cleanups and some minor fixes

16th July 2023 --- V2.3
