Are you looking for a quick and easy way to turn a photo into a PDF on your iPhone? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. By following these simple instructions, you’ll be able to convert your photos into PDF files in no time.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To start, unlock your iPhone and locate the Photos app on your home screen. Tap on it to launch the app.

Step 2: Select the Photo

In the Photos app, navigate to the album or folder where your desired photo is located. Once you find it, tap on the photo to open it.

Step 3: Access the Share Sheet

Once the photo is open, tap on the share icon located at the bottom-left corner of your screen. It looks like a square with an arrow pointing upwards.

Step 4: Choose ‘Print’

In the share sheet that appears, scroll horizontally until you find an option labeled ‘Print’. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 5: Adjust Print Settings

A new window will appear displaying a preview of your photo. To continue, perform a two-finger pinch-out gesture on this preview image. This action will zoom in and allow you to see more details.

Next, spread two fingers apart on the preview image with a reverse pinching motion. This action will reveal more options at the bottom of your screen.

Select ‘Options’ from this list of additional settings. Here you can choose options such as paper size and orientation for your PDF file.

Note: Keep in mind that these settings are not mandatory; they are entirely customizable based on your preferences.

Step 6: Generate the PDF

After adjusting the print settings, tap on the ‘Done’ button located in the top-right corner of your screen.

Now you will see a preview of your photo once again. However, this time it will appear as a PDF document. You can pinch in or out to adjust the zoom level and view the entire PDF page.

If you are satisfied with the result, tap on the share icon once again at the bottom-left corner of your screen. From here, you can choose various sharing options such as saving it to Files, sending it via email, or uploading it to a cloud storage service like iCloud Drive or Dropbox.


You have successfully turned a photo into a PDF on your iPhone. With this newfound knowledge, you can easily create PDF files from your favorite photos and share them with others effortlessly.

  • Tips:
    • If you want to convert multiple photos into a single PDF file, you can do so by selecting multiple photos in Step 2 before proceeding with the rest of the steps.
    • The ‘Print’ option may not be immediately visible in some versions of iOS. In such cases, scroll horizontally through the list of sharing options until you find it.

Enjoy exploring this feature and make use of it whenever you need to convert photos into PDFs on your iPhone!
