Most Mac programs are able to write PDF, so you need a graphics program that can crunch several JPGs together into one big JPG and then write that JPG out. The best way to do this is with a program that supports layers. Open each JPG up, place on its own layer and then align the layers so that you can see each image. Then "flatten" the image down to one combined layer and write the result as a PDF.

You can do this with commercial programs like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, but it would seem you can also do this with the freeware Chocoflop (www.chocoflop.com) - it supports both layers and writing as PDF.

PDFLab is also useful for joining multiple documents to one PDF. Plus it's free - but I can heartily recommend a donation if you use it regularly - it's great!

Thanks for the quik reply. I downloaded chocflop (looks good btw) and tried to do what you suggested, but I ehh failed miserably. I get the Idea ,but I can't get it to work. The biggest problem is that to do this I have to make a huge canvas, which results in a huge file, which caused the progamm to crash.

Is there no programm designed only to make\convert pdfs (I've accidently found some for win while googling) on os x?

Edit: Didn't saw your post Aptmunich. That sounds more like what I'm looking for. I'll try PDFLab. Thanks!
