Ability to "Save As" to a PDF document format


I've used Greenshot for years and spread the word on its usefulness, not only in grabbing screenshots, but also the draw/label/editing capability.
As I develop images for documentation or send screenshots in emails, I use the PDF format for its wide acceptability and professional format. Now, I have to save first as a jpg and use a secondary program to convert to pdf. Being able to do that in one step within Greenshot would be very helpful and I believe others could use that as well – via a "save as" option to pdf.
I'd be happy to beta test.
Thank you very much.


Windows, although adding to all OS's would surely be good for others.

I’ve been using PDF creator for years (and it always did a great job with printing PDFs), but I stopped using it when they started to bundle “browser utilities” (some call it malware) into their installer. I don’t know whether they still do and how transparent the installer is about this, so I can’t actually recommend using it. At the moment I don’t need to generate PDF, so I am not up to date with existing solutions. However, searching for “pdf printer” yields lot of results, I am pretty sure there are some great tools out there.

Could you tell me which PDF printer, do you use ? Jens Klingen

Just as additional input to anyone interested in this feature. A valid workaround (which I use with other software, too), is to install a PDF printer. Doing so allows me to export anything to PDF from any program that has a printy functionality.

I agree the ability to save as a pdf would be very beneficial. I use green shot for work. I do data entry and have to pull many confidential reports that I need to email in pdf. I use green shot for 3 different reports daily at a minimum. So currently, I need to take green shot to word, wait for word to load, save file as a pdf, have pdf load. Then go back and screen shot two or more reports this way. It makes it very time consuming and tedious when if I could just go straight to PDF it would be so convenient. I think many people have the same problem. I would like to see this functionality added, otherwise I may want to request we use something that can do that.
