I have a large number of JPEG files. Each JPEG file has a name in the format nameX.jpeg.

I want to merge them to PDF such that one JPEG picture is on one PDF page where the name of JPEG is a label on each new PDF page. This will result into a merged PDF with each JPEG picture on separate page.

How can I combine JPEG picture files to labelled PDF file in OS X?

There are programming approaches with ImageMagic and Python's img2pdf where you have to install brew to OS X.


$ brew install imagemagick

$ convert 'FILENAME.JPG'  -background Khaki  -pointsize 40 -size 40x label:'FILENAME.jpg'      -gravity Center -append 'OUTPUT.JPG'  
$ ...do this for each file...

Loop this script with Automator or some other OS X tool.
