Suppose you have a list of image files in various formats and would like to convert them into single PDF file for simpler sharing, archiving or whatever needs. A good example of such list is a list of scanned documents, books, lectures or drawings. For this task you may use our Apitron PDF Kit .NET component and let it do the work.
public void ConvertImagesToPDF()
// create resource manager for resulting document
ResourceManager resourceManager = new ResourceManager();
// create resulting document
FixedDocument resultingDocument = new FixedDocument(resourceManager);
// let's assume that we have a folder with images needed to be packed
foreach (string fileName in Directory.EnumerateFiles("Images", "*.*"))
// add document page from image with basic settings
// save resulting document
using (Stream outputStream = File.Create("resultingDocument.pdf"))
The code above creates PDF file from a list of images found in [Current Directory]\Images folder. This functionality completely replaces the Image2PDF product which was superseded by Apitron PDF Kit and you can convert images to PDF using the code above getting the same results. The FromImagePageSettings class can be used to specify conversion settings e.g. image border and its color, scale mode, page orientation etc. The library supports all major image formats: bmp, jpeg, tiff, png, jbig2.
You can also find a complete book on our website which contains detailed explanation of many PDF related aspects (see Apitron PDF Kit in Action). Feel free to ask questions, we are always ready to help.
