I have multiple A4 Pages I created and exported with Photoshop and need them to be in one PDF.

I also need

  • The software to be free (not necessarily as in GNU/Free, I just don't want to pay for it)
  • To insert Hyperlinks
  • The text to remain as real text, not rendered pixels
  • To embed the font I used so it doesn't disappear when looked at on other machines
  • The software to run on Windows 10 So far, I've tried LibreOffice but it just kinda froze when trying to open the PDF.

Have you tried ghostscript? It handles PDF input and output (and many other formats,) and there is probably a user friendly GUI available for your platform (which you didn't mention which makes recommendations a bit difficult).

I don't know about hyperlinks, though.

  • Sorry, forgot about that. I'm running windows 10. I'll check out some GUIs, I found GSview so far. Any other you'd recommend?

  • GSView is probably centered on presentation, I don't know whether it supports file processing. My guess is that your safest bet is to use the command line interface. As this sounds like a one-off task, writing a batch file would probably be overkill. Jul 19, 2020 at 17:23

    Searching on Stack Overflow, I found a reference to PDFsam which might be even more suitable for your case. The mobile SO application doesn't let me copy a link to that question, though, so you need to search yourself. Jul 19, 2020 at 17:59
