    This is also available for OS all the way back to Windows 7 possibly earlier. I know because I am lagging behind on my Windows 7 machine to this day. And also as Laurel stated, from the right click menu selection "Print" and you chose your printer option. One of them being print to PDF

    The "Print to PDF" function works from within ANY program that has a print button, including whatever your preferred photo viewer is. With Win10, you no longer need a PDF plug-in, like Cute PDF. This article is VERY MISLEADING. The print to PDF function even works from within a web browser, so you can print to PDF from Google Photos,, irfanview, etc. This article should really be titled "Convert ANYTHING to a PDF Using the MS Print to PDF Feature."

    Why would you **want** to convert an image (in its native format) to a PDF? Acrobat generally degrades images when embedding them in a PDF to limit file sizes (optimizing for the Web), and you **already have the image** already at its best possible quality...
