Images on your iPhone are typically saved as JPGs or PNGs, which are suitable for most purposes. However, sending a PDF image can be more convenient, especially when you want to hide metadata like image location. Here's how to convert a picture to a PDF on your iPhone.

How to save photo as PDF on iPhone directly

Since PDFs are a universal file type, saving an image as a PDF ensures that your file is secure and can be read by any phone or computer without errors. Here’s how to use the Photos app to create a PDF on an iPhone:

Step 1. Open the Photos App: Launch the Photos app and tap on "Select".

Step 2. Select Images: Tap on at least one image you want to save as a PDF. A blue check mark will appear on the selected photos.

Step 3. Tap the Share Icon: Tap the share icon (a square with an upward arrow).

Step 4. Select Print: Scroll down and tap "Print". Do not tap "Save to Files" yet, as this won't convert your image to a PDF.

Step 5. Access Print Options: On the Print Options screen, tap the share icon in the upper right corner.

Step 6. Save to Files: Scroll down and tap "Save to Files". This will save your images as a PDF file, with each image on a separate page.

Step 7. Choose Destination Folder: The file picker interface will open. Select a folder where you’d like to save the PDF on your iPhone.

Step 8. Rename the File: You can rename the file by tapping "Photo" at the bottom. When finished, tap "Save".
