This process is simple and free and above all, you will not need any additional programs to complete the process. This simple tutorial will show you how you can combine multiple images in Windows to create a PDF file.

Step 1. To begin, locate the images you want to combine, either using File Explorer or on your desktop.

Step 2. This will open the "print pictures" window. Here, select the "Microsoft Print to PDF" option from the "Printer" dropdown menu. You can also choose other settings, including the desired paper size and orientation of the document.
Here you can also check the "Fit picture to frame" checkbox. This will scale up the images and make sure that they completely fit the paper size dimensions. However, it is important to note that this may interfere with the image's resolution or even cut off certain portions of the image if it doesn't have the same aspect ratio as the paper size.

Instead of printing the images, Windows will create a single PDF document from the selected images and ask you to choose a location to save the newly created PDF file. Choose an appropriate location to save the file and then click on "Save" to complete the process. You can now navigate to the folder and open the PDF. You will notice that Windows has successful created a single PDF file from the selected images.
