Create PDFs from JPGs ?

P: n/a
All,
Does anyone know of a script that already exists that would allow me to pass
in the name of a JPG or GIF and spit out a PDF ?

Just checking around before I buckle down and write one.
Thanks.

Not as such, but php-pdf (http://www.ros.co.nz/pdf) can happily build a
pdf page with jpegs inserted. It's simple to set up as well.

maybe this helps you :

/* This is where font/image/PDF input files live. Adjust as necessary. */

$p = PDF_new(); /* create a new PDFlib object */

PDF_set_parameter($p, "SearchPath", $searchpath);

/* open new PDF file; insert a file name to create the PDF on disk */
if (PDF_open_file($p, "") == 0) {
die("Error: " . PDF_get_errmsg($p));
}

/* This line is required to avoid problems on Japanese systems */
PDF_set_parameter($p, "hypertextencoding", "winansi");

PDF_set_info($p, "Creator", "image.php");
PDF_set_info($p, "Author", "Rainer Schaaf");
PDF_set_info($p, "Title", "image sample (PHP)");

$imagefile = "test.jpg";

$image = PDF_load_image($p, "auto", $imagefile, "");
if (!$image) {

header("Content-Disposition: inline; filename=image.pdf");
print $buf;

PDF_delete($p); /* delete the PDFlib object */
?>
