Convert Images to PDF using Apitron Image 2 PDF for .NET (C# sample included)

Turn images to PDF with our new product Apitron Image 2 PDF for .NET   a .NET component that allows you to convert a set of images into a PDF file. It can be used to create booklets, combine scanned documents or pack slides into single PDF document and other similar tasks.


Simple and functional API carefully designed to be intuitive and clear. Here I’m going to show some code so you’ll be able to see its basics.

So the task is to convert a set of images from some folder  to  a PDF document and the solution is below.

using System.IO;
using Apitron.Image2Pdf;

internal class Program
    private static void Main(string[] args)
        // open and load image files
        string[] images = Directory.GetFiles(@"..\..\..\Documents\");

        // this object represents a PDF document
        Document document = new Document();

        // intialize settings object
        PageSettings settings = new PageSettings();
        settings.ScaleMode = ImageScaleMode.PreserveAspectRatio;
        settings.KeepImageOrientation = true;

        // process and save images to PDF one by one
        foreach (string image in images)
            document.AddImage(image, settings);


        // preview PDF document

As you may see it doesn’t take much, but generates a readable PDF document with pages created from corresponding images. Things like page size, orientation, scaling, autosizing can be controlled using conversion settings. Image below demonstrates the result produced using the sample included in download package.
