Do you have photos on your iPhone or iPad that you’d like to convert to a PDF file? You can use Apple’s free Shortcuts app to make a PDF file out of your images. We’ll show you how to do that.
Shortcuts is an Apple app that lets you automate various tasks on your iPhone or iPad. To turn your photos into a PDF, you can create a custom shortcut in this app. This shortcut will accept your photos as input, turn them into a PDF, and let you save the PDF in your preferred location.
How to Make a PDF File Out of Your Images
When you’re ready, start by downloading and installing the free Shortcuts app on your iPhone. Then open the newly installed app.
In the Shortcuts app, from the top-right corner, select the “+” (plus) sign.
An “Untitled Shortcut” screen will open. Here, tap the “Search” field.
In the “Search” field, type “Select Photos.” Then choose “Select Photos” in the search results. You’re adding this action so that your shortcut accepts photos as input.
In the newly added “Select Photos” section, turn on the “Select Multiple” toggle. This will allow you to choose multiple photos to convert to PDF.
Tap the “Search” field again. This time, type “Make PDF” and select it in the search results. This action will convert your input photos to a PDF file.
Tap the “Search” field again, type “Share”, and select “Share” in the search results. This action will allow you to share or save your resulting PDF file.
On the same “Untitled Shortcut” page, in the top-right corner, tap the “Settings” option.
