    png to pdf

    I have a png picture on the desktop. I need to change it to a pdf text file. It isnt a picture, just a prt Scr of a note.
    Staples couldnt even print it out for me cause they didnt know the program it was from. How can I convert it to a pdf??

    Use the convert command from imagemagick.

    In its simplest form it is
    Code:
    convert image.png image.pdf
    but you can add many options to fine-tune the output if needed.

    See "man convert" in terminal, though you may find it a bit convoluted.

    Open the file with the default picture viewer, then click the print button. When the print window opens select Print to File and you will see the circle to click in order to make it a PDF.

    Gimp has a GUI and will open png. File->Print->"Print to file" will create a pdf. Or LibreOffice.

    Shotwell does the same thing. Open file, print, select print to file. I think it drops the pdf file in the documents folder.

    CUPSPDF provides a generic PDF print function.
