Re: Evidence: pictures

It is incredibly easy.

Insert photos on A4 - Word document, resize - so you have two pictures on a page then File, Save As and then select PDF from drop down or Print as PDF.

If needed to adjust file size, open them in Acrobat Acrobat (pdf software) and File, Save as other, then Reduced size pdf.
