Converting images to PDF is not always an option because images are often easier to save with the recent mobile trends coming up. With all the transfers happening though, is your photo still high in quality when uploaded and downloaded online? On social media alone, photos are automatically downgraded. Have you noticed how your photo becomes a tad bit pixelated when you upload it on Facebook? It’s not your imagination, it really happens. That’s because limiting image size has been the default setting with these social media to save server storage space. So how can you preserve your image despite all these transfers? The answer is changing the file format – PDF.
PDF is short for Portable Document Format. This file format has been used and created by Adobe for the sole purpose of maintaining the file’s content and quality. It was first used by printing and publication companies but eventually, it became open for the public.
One of the tools used for PDF conversion is the Image to PDF converter which includes file formats such as JPG, PNG, BMP, and TIFF converted to PDF or vice versa. PDF is not preferred by common household computer users but business owners who print their images on-demand use this by default.
