we need to save a bunch of jpg images to pdf.
process multiple files leads to it asking us every image what to save as!
yes we did choose pdf at the bottom of the form.
doubt windows 7 has that that feature and we will have 250 images so we need a multiple image thing.
Found a windows 10 and it works great. as it happens we have 25 sets of 12 pics each.
thanks very much
Elements is not the tool for that batch conversion.
The Adobe tool is Acrobat.
There are a lot of softwares and online tools to do the job. I would be prudent with free ones to avoid spam or worse. I just checked that two excellent free conversion tools can do that: Irfanview and Faststone Resizer.
The Elements editor can save as Photoshop pdf, which is a combination of a psd (with layers including text and shapes) with an Acrobat PDF. Very flexible but huge size, probably not what you want.
I routinely use the virtual pdf printer driver from Microsoft (Print to pdf) to do fast conversions to standard pdf in Elements. You "print" instead of saving. Not exactly a batch conversion, but you can 'print' 250 jpegs as a 250 pages pdf.
they are too personal for use online. who knows where they might endup!
That is the normal prompt. Don’t be confused by the word JPEG, it’s saving a PDF. You need to understand the choices, and if happy click OK or press Return.
the next task is to start with a psd file with pics on several layers and convert them to jpgs as individual pics

Where is the problem? You can either export as new files from the organizer (recommended) or use the 'process multiple files' feature of the editor.
What I don't understand is how you managed to batch process psd files to pdf without confirming each save.
as the images are not in organizer, that wont work
the adjusted images are only in pse5
will any of the elements versisions convert layers to jpg separate images like photoshop does?
does elements have to to be on the internet?
There is a powerful but very affordable add-on which offers scripts to export layers as separate files like Photoshop. Do a search for Elements+. Works on recent Elements versions (the current one is Elements 2020).
You can decide not to use the organizer for all your photos, but it's your choice to create a tiny custom catalog with the files you have to print. Takes one minute. You can delete it in one click after printing. No images files are copied in the process. Of course using the process multiple files works about the same without needing a catalog.
