Plenty of third-party applications can help you convert PNG images to PDF files. However, most services require payment or impose limitations in some way. Luckily, there is a way for you to convert as many PNG files as you want to PDFs — and that is by using Windows 11’s Microsoft Print to PDF feature.

There are some benefits to converting your PNG files to PDFs. For example, it is easier to email a single PDF document as opposed to a whole fleet of images. Unless image quality is essential to you, converting images to PDFs means your pictures will use less storage space on your PC.

Additionally, your professor may require you to submit PDF versions of your handwritten outputs if you are a student. The only way you can do this is by taking pictures of your work, then converting them to PDFs. Whatever your reason is, Windows 11 can help you convert PNGs to PDFs effortlessly.
