How to Convert GIF to PDF

Convert GIF to PDF - This is how it works with a PDF printer

What do I need to convert a GIF file into a PDF file and how do I create a PDF file from a GIF file

Files of the type GIF or files with the file extension .gif can be converted into a PDF file with the help of a PDF creator or a PDF printer.

A PDF printer is a virtual printer that can be used like any other printer. The difference to a normal printer is that a PDF printer creates a PDF file, whereas a normal printer prints on a sheet of paper.

In this way, everything that can be printed can also be converted into a PDF file. If you can print a GIF file, you can also create a PDF file from this file. A PDF printer is therefore a special PDF converter that converts printable files into PDFs.

You can download the free and easy-to-use PDF printer from PDF24 from this page. Simply click on the download link on the right. After the installation you will have a PDF printer that you can use to convert your .gif file.

And that's how it works:
  1. Install the PDF24 Creator
  2. Open the file with a program that can read the .gif file.
  3. Print out the file on the PDF24 PDF printer. The print function is usually offered via the File-> Print menu.
  4. The PDF24 assistant opens, with which you can save, send, fax or edit the PDF.
