Let's begin by creating a C# project.

  • Open Visual Studio.
  • Create a new C# Project.
  • Give a name to the project.
  • Select a .NET Core version for your project. It is recommended to use .NET 6.0 for this project.

2. Install the IronPDF Library

Method 1: NuGet Package Manager Solution

Visual Studio supplies the NuGet Package Manager to download NuGet packages in your projects. You can access it through the Tools Menu, or by right-clicking your project in Solution Explorer.

Use a NuGet command to install the IronPDF library in your project. Copy the code snippet in the NuGet Package Manager Console and press enter. IronPDF library will be installed and ready to use in your project.

Install-Package IronPdf

Method 3: Using DLL File

You can also download IronPDF .DLL files directly from the website.

After unzipping the file, reference the library in your project by following these steps:

  • Right-click the Solution in the Solution Explorer
  • Select "References"
  • Browse for the IronPDF.dll library
  • Click OK

All done! IronPDF is downloaded, installed, and ready to use to convert JPG to PDF format.

3. Add the IronPDF Namespace

Now add the IronPDF namespace to your program. You have to add the provided line of code to the top of the file.

using IronPdf;
using IronPdf;
Imports IronPdf
VB   C#

This will allow you to access the functions of the IronPDF library. You are required to add this line of code to every file to use the IronPDF features.

4. Convert JPG Images to PDF Format

The Conversion of JPG images to PDF files can be achieved in a single line with IronPDF. The code is neat, clean, and understandable. This task can be achieved using the IronPDFs ImageToPdf method. Follow the steps below to convert any JPG image to a PDF document.

First, place all JPG file formats to be converted inside a folder named assets located in the directory of the project. The folder must be placed in the location: bin\Debug\net6.0.

Then using System.IO.Directory, enumerate the assets folder with all the JPG files and pass it to the ImageToPdf method for PDF conversion. The following code snippet helps convert JPG to PDF images and saves it to a new document.

using IronPdf;

Console.WriteLine("C# Convert Images (JPG to PDF) using IronPDF");

// Selects all JPG/JPEG images in the folder 'assets'.
var image = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(f => f.EndsWith(".jpg") || f.EndsWith(".jpeg"));

// Converting image to PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(image).SaveAs("composite.pdf");

// Print success message
Console.WriteLine("JPG successfully converted to PDF using C#");
using IronPdf;

Console.WriteLine("C# Convert Images (JPG to PDF) using IronPDF");

// Selects all JPG/JPEG images in the folder 'assets'.
var image = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(f => f.EndsWith(".jpg") || f.EndsWith(".jpeg"));

// Converting image to PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(image).SaveAs("composite.pdf");

// Print success message
Console.WriteLine("JPG successfully converted to PDF using C#");
Imports IronPdf

Console.WriteLine("C# Convert Images (JPG to PDF) using IronPDF")

' Selects all JPG/JPEG images in the folder 'assets'.
Dim image = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(Function(f) f.EndsWith(".jpg") OrElse f.EndsWith(".jpeg"))

' Converting image to PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(image).SaveAs("composite.pdf")

' Print success message
Console.WriteLine("JPG successfully converted to PDF using C#")
VB   C#

In the above code snippet, the asset folder contains only one JPG image. The output file looks like this:

The same code example can be used to convert multiple JPG files. The output contains three JPG images in a PDF document.
