Question

Does anyone know how I can convert digital pictures of the pages of a book into PDFs?

Download PDF Creator, which you can use as a virtual printer.

Insert the images into Word (Insert > Picture > From File), then print the document to PDF Creator.

It's really that easy. You may have to make some adjustments. I like to optimize the images in PhotoShop (black and white, 600 dpi in TIFF format), but it should work regardless.

if you have photoshop, you can save an image as a pdf without having to got through pdf creator at all!

The problem with PhotoShop is saving multiple pages as a single document. I don't think PhotoShop can do that. But PDF Creator can turn anything that you can print into a PDF, so you don't even need PhotoShop, let a lone Word.
