Slim solution for converting JPEGs into PDFs than LibreOffice?

Post#1 by Rava » 13 Nov 2021, 21:21

Once again I have to convert several images into a PDF.
Every time in the past I had to fire up Libre Office - and even when I use the outdated LibreOffice-6.2.5.2-x86_64-de_rava.xzm - it is still a whooping 205.09 MB in size.

And once again I wonder: Is there no smaller solution for just putting some JPEGs into a PDF?
>200 MB for just that even when we have efficiently compressed live modules is kind of overkill for what needs to be done.

It should be possible to adjust the image size or where the image should be placed, it should result in a PDF using A4 as page size - still the images I make and need to put into an PDF are sure not made to fit the aspect radio perfectly.

Any tips? And please no online solution the data is confidential.
Cheers!

I have imagemagik (for x86-64 Port 5.0rc3), I try it and report back. :)

Added in 1 day 5 hours 48 minutes 48 seconds:
I have GraphicsMagick-1.3.21-x86_64-bundle-STRIPPED.xzm not imagemagick
so I have to type

Code: Select all

gm convert 1.jpg 2.jpg […] whatever.pdf
Works perfect. Thanks!
Cheers!
