Convert JPG, PNG, TIFF, EMF, or BMP Images to PDF using C#

Images to PDF conversion is an important and useful scenario for file processing applications. In this article, we will be learning to convert JPG, PNG, TIFF, EMF, WMF, and BMP image to PDF conversion using C# or VB.NET. Following are a few of the possible use cases for converting images:

Convert JPG to PDF with C#

You can easily convert a JPG image to PDF by following steps:

  1. Initialize object of Document class
  2. Add a new Page to PDF document
  3. Load JPG image and add to paragraph
  4. Save output PDF

The code snippet below shows how to convert JPG Image to PDF using C#:

Below is the screenshot of JPG conversion to PDF:

Image to PDF

However, in this screenshot, you can notice that the image is converted to a PDF page, but, default page dimensions and margins are applied in the output PDF document. Aspose.PDF for .NET API allows you to control page dimensions and margin that help you create exactly the same size PDF as of the image dimensions. Let us proceed to explore this feature:

Convert Image to PDF with Same Page Height and Width

Continuing this example from the above use case, as you can notice bigger page size in the above screenshot. Let us learn how to convert an image to PDF with the same height and width of the page. We will be getting the image dimensions and accordingly set the page dimensions of PDF document with the below steps:

  1. Load input image file
  2. Get the height and width of the image
  3. Set height, width, and margins of a page
  4. Save the output PDF file

Following code snippet shows how to convert an Image to PDF with same page height and width using C#:

So you can notice the difference of page dimensions that have been created with updated code snippet:

Finally, you can notice the page size is exactly similar in accordance with input image dimensions, and there are no more default page margins being set now.

Convert PNG to PDF using C#

PNG image format is popular because of its features as compared to JPG images. For example, PNG images support transparency. Firstly, let us convert PNG to PDF with below steps:

  1. Load input PNG image
  2. Read height and width values
  3. Create new document and add Page
  4. Set page dimensions
  5. Save output file

Moreover, the code snippet below shows how to convert PNG to PDF with C# in your .NET applications:

Convert TIFF to PDF using C#

A TIFF image is different from conventional JPEG, PNG, or other formats in a way that a TIFF image can contain several frames with different images. Aspose.PDF file format is also supported, be it a single frame or multi-frame TIFF image. So you can convert the TIFF image to PDF in your .NET applications. Therefore, we will consider an example of converting multi-page TIFF image to multi-page PDF document with below steps:

  1. Instantiate an instance of Document class
  2. Load input TIFF image
  3. Get FrameDimension of the frames
  4. Add new page for each frame
  5. Finally, save images to PDF pages

Moreover, the following code snippet shows how to convert multi-page or multi-frame TIFF image to PDF with C#:

Convert EMF Image to PDF using C#

EMF images, also known as Enhanced Metafile Format, are actually device-independent images. Furthermore, you can convert EMF to PDF image using the below steps:

  1. Firstly, initialize Document class object
  2. Load EMF image file
  3. Add the loaded EMF image to a Page
  4. Save PDF document

Moreover, the following code snippet shows how to convert an EMF to PDF with C# in your .NET code snippet:

Convert BMP to PDF with C#

BMP images are Bitmap images that you can convert to PDF with Aspose.PDF for .NET API. Therefore, you can follow the following steps to convert BMP images:

  1. Initialize a new Document
  2. Load input BMP image
  3. Finally, save the output PDF file

So the following code snippet follows these steps and shows how to convert BMP to PDF using C#:


After all, we have explored images to PDF conversion from different aspects. Different conversions including JPG, PNG, TIFF, EMF, and BMP to PDF conversion has been discussed in detail.
