Image-to-PDF-Free is a straightforward application that allows you to convert image files into PDF documents. The range of supported image formats includes most common file types, such as JPG, JPEG, PNG, TIF, TIFF, BMP, and GIF. The tool is equipped with OCR technology, so that the text within your image files can be extracted as accurately as possible and saved in PDF format.
The utility provides a simple, clear-cut, and intuitive interface, which makes the app easy to manage. Loading files is done either by drag-and-drop or by using the classic mode of browsing for files from within the program. The first method seems to be handier, as it lets you import multiple files at once, while with the browsing method you can load only one file at a time. Once the images are loaded, you can preview them in thumbnail mode. Still, if you want to see the pictures in their original size, you can double-click on the selected item and the image will open on your Mac's default image viewer.
What is great about this application is that it provides three conversion modes. The program has the ability to read the image file content and it offers you to convert only the text, only the images, as well as the text embedded in the images. When dealing with image files that contain text, the OCR function comes into your help with six most common languages for better text recognition.
In short, Image-to-PDF-Free is a simple conversion tool that lets you turn the content of your image files into PDF. However, the free version’s severe limitation to convert only the first image file of a sequence of pictures makes the apparent batch conversion mode useless, and gives you the impression that you are dealing with the trial version of a professional program and not with an actual free edition.
