Merging all the images into one PDF is a convenient way for students to share notes externally with their friends. Moreover, PDF files are smaller, so they are easily transferable.
With the Microsoft Office app and CamScanner, you can use this article to create a PDF file from multiple images.
Benefits of Converting Multiple Images Into a Single PDF
Sequence Remain Intact
Often, sharing PDFs on social media platforms or uploading them to the internet disrupts the image sequence. Without the correct numbering, the person has a hard time sorting and arranging images. You can control the sequence of images effectively when you convert them into PDF files.
If you have to share the same list of images on multiple sources, there is a chance you may miss one or more. When merged in PDF, you can check the sequence and number of images, and you can share the same file across different platforms.
Separately saving images will require more space on your phone and the receiver’s mobile. Converting it to PDF will save some space for you and the recipient.
1. Convert Images to PDFs Directly From Microsoft Office App
With Microsoft Office, you can work with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. In addition to viewing documents, you can also merge images and convert files into different formats.
Let’s see how you can convert images into PDF files in MS Office. First, open the Microsoft Office app on your mobile phone if it is already installed. If you haven’t already downloaded it, do so now.
Ensure that the images or scanned photos you intend to merge in a PDF are in your mobile phone gallery.
- Open office app.
- Tap on the Actions option in the lower right corner.
- Scroll down to the section Do more with PDFs.

Choosing this option will take you to the gallery on your mobile phone, from where you can choose the pictures you want to merge.
Step 1: Select the images you wish to merge.
Step 2: On the lower right bottom, tap the arrow button.
Step 3: The app will now display the sequence of the images you selected to merge into a PDF. After all the images have been selected, swipe from right to left to make sure they are in order.
Step 4: You can add a new image, add a filter to one or more images, crop an image from the list, rotate, or delete it from the bottom right corner. You can also add text to the preview and drag it across the image.
Step 5: Click the done button at the bottom right corner after making any changes to the image or swiping across the list.
Step 6: In the final preview, you will see the images merged into PDF, with each image as a separate page in the PDF.
Step 7: Click the pencil icon in the upper right corner to edit the PDF. Even in this preview, you can add text, rotate any image, or even add a note.
Step 8: Once you are satisfied with the editing, click the tick mark in the top left corner.
Step 9: Click on the three dots at the top right corner to rename the PDF file, convert it to an MS-Word file, save it to your mobile device, and change a few other settings.
Step 10: Save the PDF directly to your mobile device to share it externally.
