    simple math 6 mb / 100 = 60 kb each! so you have to shrink your photos to 60 kb each using any program such as Preview for example. Be aware that the quality will suffer, but if you size them down that will help. – Ruskes Dec 23 '14 at 1:39

You can use ImageMagick (free, open source, cross-platform, CLI) with the jpeg:extent=value parameter to compress each image to a target size, e.g. mogrify -define jpeg:extent=60KB *.jpeg

Restrict the maximum JPEG file size, for example -define jpeg:extent=400KB. The JPEG encoder will search for the highest compression quality level that results in an output file that does not exceed the value. The -quality option is ignored if it is also present.

Then see How can I convert JPG into PDF easily?
