Convert an image to PDF with Gimp

In order to have an image printed by a professional printing service, I had to export the image created with Gimp to a PDF file. Here is how to do that.

  • With Gimp save the image as a PS file, with the right size in the option dialog box (for instance, for an A5 dimension choose 148x210 mm)

  • In a terminal convert the ps file to a pdf file, with the matching size

Update : There's an other another way that gives much better results regarding the compression ratio of the picture in the PDF, see Convert an image to high quality PDF, Redux
