some scanner software comes with the ability to scan to pdf

.. otherwise you'd need a jpg tp pdf conversion software

If what you have is the only thing you really need converted to pdf,

it looks like a Whirlpool tech sheet that may be available ..

What's the part number of the tech sheets ?

You can install a free virtual printer program such as www.dopdf.com/quick-download.php (tutorial and download link on that page) or download the free version of cutepdf (not the "try it free" version) After installing, you simply open your file.... Print it as you would any other file but select whichever of the above programs you installed as if it's the printer. Then it will "print" a pdf file to whatever file location you chose.

Then my good fellow, to paraphrase the Great Samurai, you done kicked some computer bootay. Instant computer savvyness and ol' Bill Gates will have nothing on you!

Or.......

Upload your pictures every time and Sensei Reg will be more than happy to convert them for you. :thumbsup: .

There's an easy way to do this for any document you can print.  Install a .pdf printer - here's a free one - http://www.bullzip.com/

 

When you have a document you want turned into a .pdf, you just hit print and select the bullzip .pdf as your printer - it then opens a screen that asks where you want to save it and - "Poof" - instant pdf file.

PDF driver is a great idea.  I use CutePDF as mentioned above or PDF995.  Both free.
