Simple solution to multipage PDFs


is an excellent guide to numerous ways of converting a multipage document scan into a PDF.

Basically, you scan your pages into multiple files, e.g., scanxx.jpg where xx is a sequential number.

Then you have several choices as detailed in the article.

1. The simplest is simply

     convert image*.jpg image.pdf

I haven't tried that, but the one I did try was to import the images as layers into gimp, save the lot as an mpng file, then at the command line use
     convert image.mpng image.pdf

I won't steal Patrick's thunder so check out the link for details.
