How to Convert an Image to PDF in FileCenter
In FileCenter, you can quickly scan, organize, and convert your images and documents to PDF. After installing the software and organizing your folders into cabinets and drawers, you can use the PDF converter from the actions menu.
To start, select the PNG or JPG file you want to convert to PDF in the drawer and click on the Actions menu. You’ll see three options available:

The “Convert to PDF” option will open a new window with standard settings. You can change the document name, choose the page size, and adjust the quality settings on this window. Once you are satisfied, click on “Start Conversion” to begin the process.
Using the Advanced PNG and JPG to PDF Conversion
In the advanced PNG and JPG to PDF conversion option, you have some additional settings to help streamline your conversion process. Instead of the PDF settings window, a new workspace gives you some additional settings to help organize your PDFs. Note that you can also select multiple PNG and JPG files and convert all of them in a single process.
The advanced conversion option allows you to:
- Set a password for the files
- Delete the original files after conversion
- Add keywords to find the files easily in the future
- Change the conversion quality settings and add a date or timestamp to the files
You can choose to apply your settings to a single file or all the files and click on the convert button to bulk-convert JPG to PDF. When the process completes, you’ll see the icons change from an image file to a PDF in the list view.
You should also note the change in file size after the conversion. If you are using cloud storage for your documents and images, converting them to PDF will help you optimize your storage space.
