Are you looking to turn a picture into a PDF on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of converting your images into PDF format using your iPhone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Install a PDF Converter App

If you don’t already have one, head over to the App Store and search for a reliable PDF converter app. There are several options available, such as Adobe Scan, CamScanner, and Genius Scan. Once you find the app of your choice, tap on ‘Get’ or ‘Install’ to download and install it on your iPhone.

Step 2: Launch the PDF Converter App

Once the installation is complete, locate the app on your home screen and tap on its icon to launch it.

Step 3: Import or Take a Photo

To convert an existing photo into a PDF, tap on the ‘Import’ or ‘Add Photo’ button within the app. This will allow you to choose an image from your iPhone’s photo library. Alternatively, if you want to capture a new photo and convert it directly into a PDF, tap on the camera icon within the app to access your iPhone’s camera.

Step 4: Edit and Adjust

Once you’ve selected or taken a photo, the PDF converter app will provide options for editing and adjusting the image before converting it into a PDF. You can crop, rotate, enhance the image quality, adjust brightness/contrast levels, or apply filters if desired. Make any necessary adjustments until you are satisfied with the result.

Step 5: Convert to PDF

After editing your photo (if needed), locate the ‘Convert’ or ‘Save as PDF’ button within the app and tap on it. The app will begin processing your image and convert it into a PDF file. This may take a few moments depending on the size and complexity of the image.

Step 6: Save and Share

Once the conversion process is complete, you will be prompted to save the PDF file. Choose a suitable name for the file and select the destination folder where you want to save it. You can also choose to share the PDF directly from within the app via email, messaging apps, or other sharing options supported by your iPhone.

Step 7: Access Your Converted PDF

Now that you have successfully converted your picture into a PDF, you can access it anytime from your iPhone’s file manager or within the PDF converter app itself. Simply navigate to the folder where you saved the PDF and tap on it to open and view its contents.


  • If you have multiple images that you would like to convert into a single PDF document, most converter apps offer a ‘Merge’ or ‘Combine’ feature that allows you to merge multiple images into one PDF file.
  • Some apps may also provide additional features like OCR (Optical Character Recognition) that can extract text from images and make them searchable within the resulting PDF document.
  • Remember to regularly organize and backup your converted PDF files to avoid cluttering up your device’s storage. You can use cloud storage services like iCloud, Google Drive, or Dropbox for easy access and backup.

Congratulations! You’ve learned how to turn pictures into PDFs on your iPhone using a dedicated converter app.

Now you can easily convert any image into a portable document format with just a few simple steps. Enjoy the convenience and flexibility of having your images in PDF format!
