Is there any practical way to create a PDF from a list of images files, using Python?
In Perl I know that module. With it I can create a PDF in just 3 lines:
use PDF::FromImage; ... my $pdf = PDF::FromImage->new; $pdf->load_images(@allPagesDir); $pdf->write_file($bookName . '.pdf');
I need to do something very similar to this, but in Python. I know the pyPdf module, but I would like something simple.
Now we will see solution for issue: Create PDF from a list of images
Install FPDF for Python:
pip install fpdf
Now you can use the same logic:
from fpdf import FPDF pdf = FPDF() # imagelist is the list with all image filenames for image in imagelist: pdf.add_page() pdf.image(image,x,y,w,h) pdf.output("yourfile.pdf", "F")
You can find more info at the tutorial page or the official documentation.
