Are you saying that you want to create a photo collage on one page as a pdf file or do you want to create a multi-page pdf file with different photos on each page?

If you want to create a single page collage, simply save the file as a pdf, by using the drop down menu for Save as type:

If you want to create a multi-page pdf, I think you will have to create a photo book and Print it to the Auto Adobe PDF printer that I believe is included in Elements 14.

Thanks for your help. I want to create a multi-page pdf file with different photos on each page. I want to avoid having to pay and use Acrobat Reader to do this.

Then, use a virtual pdf printer as explained above.

Which is your OS version?

You don't have to pay for Acrobat Reader (it's free) but it does not create multipage pdf files. You don't need Acrobat subscription with all the other available solutions mentionned above.

I just checked that PSE12 and PSE15 offer the share option with email and pdf slideshow. I would be surprised if PSE14 was different.

You can also create multipage pdfs from the 'Share' panel, with 'email' and 'pdf slideshow'. Those are available in recent PSE versions, I think they are available in  PSE14.

It looks like Adobe is limiting severely the ability to manage pdfs from Elements and hopes you to subscribe to Acrobat.

A little known fact about pdf formats is that the usual Acrobat/Illustrator format is no longer supported in recent Organizer versions. Only the 'Photoshop pdf' format is supported for your catalogs. That format combines a plain Acrobat pdf with a full psd format (even with layers). The good things are that the files open directly in the Acrobat Reader and in the editor while being managed in your catalogs. The bad thing is that the format creates huge size files.

I'd say that most Elements users won't subscribe to an Acrobat plan just for a few creations. So they are tempted to go to the competition. The usual choice is to download a free 'virtual pdf printer driver'. This software installs a printer driver which creates a pdf file instead of printing from your printer. You 'print', you don't 'save as'.

Beware of many free drivers, you don't know what kind of malware/addware may be hidden...

My choice is to use the Microsoft 'Print to pdf' driver installed automatically with Windows 10. I believe you have similar tools for Macs.

If you are interested by more pdf features, you might consider the open source softwares Scribus or Inkscape (similar to Indesign and Illustrator).

Michel is correct. You can create a multipage pdf file using the Elements Organizer 14's Share>PDF slideshow option.  This option sends a multi-page PDF via email.

Thank you for your response and assistance.  Unfortunately, I only have Flickr, Facebook and Twitter as options in "SHARE". There is no PDF slideshow listed.

The PDF Slideshow in EO 14 seems to require that you set up your email for sharing.  So, try setting up your email account to work with Elements.  Go to Edit>Preferences>Email to set it up.  Once that is done, I suspect that Share will also show both Email and PDF Slideshow.  (I am assuming that you have a Windows OS.  If not, I don't know whether Mac has this feature included.)

Go to Elements Organizer>Preferences>Adobe Partner Services and click Refresh and hopefully that will get you the PDF Slideshow.

I just followed your instructions and refreshed the Adobe partner services, but I am still not getting the PDF slideshow option under Share.  Very odd
