IronPDF: C# PDF Library

IronPDF is a C# PDF library for creating and editing PDFs on Windows. It was created by .NET developers who wanted to have the same functionality as Adobe Acrobat but in a more simplified way. IronPDF is an easy-to-use and lightweight library with many features that support beginners and experts programmatically:

IronPDF is a library of C# PDF API features. It provides the developer with easy-to-use tools for creating, editing, encrypting, and signing PDF documents from within .NET applications based on Microsoft .NET Framework and .NET Core.

The IronPDF library is written entirely in C# to provide an easy way for .NET developers to write PDF documents. The goal of the IronPDF library is to provide a set of API calls that make it simple for developers to create PDFs, apply digital signatures, and encrypt their information.

IronPDF enables developers to write very efficiently and with fewer lines of code for PDF processors. Let's take a look at how to scan multiple pages or images into one PDF using IronPDF.

// PM> Install-Package IronPdf
using IronPdf;
using System.IO;
using System.Linq;

// One or more images as IEnumerable. This example selects all JPEG images in a specific 'assets' folder.
var ImageFiles = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(f => f.EndsWith(".jpg") || f.EndsWith(".jpeg"));

// Converts the images to a PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(ImageFiles).SaveAs("composite.pdf");
// PM> Install-Package IronPdf
using IronPdf;
using System.IO;
using System.Linq;

// One or more images as IEnumerable. This example selects all JPEG images in a specific 'assets' folder.
var ImageFiles = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(f => f.EndsWith(".jpg") || f.EndsWith(".jpeg"));

// Converts the images to a PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(ImageFiles).SaveAs("composite.pdf");
' PM> Install-Package IronPdf
Imports IronPdf
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Linq

' One or more images as IEnumerable. This example selects all JPEG images in a specific 'assets' folder.
Private ImageFiles = System.IO.Directory.EnumerateFiles("assets").Where(Function(f) f.EndsWith(".jpg") OrElse f.EndsWith(".jpeg"))

' Converts the images to a PDF and saves it.
ImageToPdfConverter.ImageToPdf(ImageFiles).SaveAs("composite.pdf")
VB   C#

In the code above, the ImageToPdf function of IronPDF is used to scan a bunch of images from the system and convert them to a PDF file. The IO.Directory.EnumrateFiles is used to loop over the assets folder to fetch images from the system. Please visit this example page to convert images to pdf for more details.
