Add / Remove Pages from PDF / Convert Image to PDF?

Post by Gottfried »

How do I Add / Remove Pages from PDF / Convert Image to PDF?

Libreoffice can create pdf.
I can edit PDF in GIMP as image, which takes care of the EXPORT as image function.

How do I turn a png into a pdf.

How do I remove pages from my own pdf once it is already a PDF, or insert pages from one PDF to another or re-arrange them?

Hopefully there is a gui program, not just command line, because I need to explain this to some other people too who aren't very proficient in and command line apps.

Add and Remove use "pdfchain"

Conversion use "FF Multi Converter"

You can do this also in libre office, just insert your png image to a page in writer/text document, you then get an option to resize by dragging the frame edges, when you're done just export to pdf using the icon on the toolbar.

More hints provided at How can I extract a page range / a part of a PDF?
I admire the simplicity of in-built bash commands pdfseparate and pdfunite:

Code: Select all

    pdfseparate sample.pdf sample-%d.pdf
    # ls; sample.pdf sample-1.pdf sample-2.pdf sample-3.pdf sample-4.pdf

    pdfunite sample-2.pdf sample-3.pdf output.pdf
    # now you can use output.pdf

Well, since you brought back a 7 year old post, I use PDF-Shuffler to manipulate PDF's.

There is a website that converts doc, pdf, ppt, image files in either direction. You can also add to or delete from pdf's.

smallpdf.com

I have used it many times! :)
Mint 20.1 Cinnamon 4.8.6 Kernel 5.4.0-72 (64 bit). {Dell XPS 13}
