convert multiple jpg files into pdf

Is there a program to convert multiple jpeg files into a single pdf file? What I can think of to solve this problem is to paste the pictures in writer and then create the pdf from there. But is there a program that will create a pdf directly (for multiple jpeg files)?

There was recently a thread about getting multiple png files into a single pdf, and it got answers, so you should search for that. It very probably has an answer for you aswell, since png and jpeg are both image formats and hopefully the programs mentioned in the thread work for jpegs too.

One option is, yes, to paste the images to Writer and export it as a pdf. But if the result doesn't satisfy you, there are other options.

First, this post has been closed for SIX YEARS. Second, the OP received an answer in posts #3 and 5, using FREE software already with Linux. So, posting links to commercial software isn't going to help you much. Thread reported.
