    bmp to pdf conversion

    Hi all,

    Can anybody tell me if there is any source code available for bmp to pdf conversion? I need one that will work on Windows XP.
    Even snipets will do, I will then try to build on that. In short I just need something to get started with.

    Regards

    Hi kryptkat,

    Thanks for replying...
    Actually I am a software developer and am looking for some source code that I can use to convert a bmp file to pdf type. I then can use the code to customize it and so on.
    Most codes on the net are related to linux platforms. I would like one that would work on WInxp.

    I agree with kryptkat, you will have to read and understand both formats and then read the bmp and write the pdf.

    btw, I suggest you look through the linux code you found, and try to rewrite it using win api.


    goodluck

    Check this out: http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

    It works by providing a fake printer that spits out PDFs. So basically load the image with Paint or something and print to the PDF printer.

    Not a built in solution, but it works
