Stitching together PDFs
February 26, 2003
Over on Macosxhints, there's a post on Stitching together multiple PDFs with ghostscript. The author said other solutions seemed too complicated or involved downloading lots of stuff, so just install Fink (yikes! a major project in and of itself) and download ghostscript, go to the terminal, and type "gs -q -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=output.pdf pdf1.pdf pdf2.pdf". (Just replace the filenames with your own.).
How about this: download PStill, choose Combine Many from the File menu, drag in the files you want to combine (good old drag and drop), and click OK.
Yeah, okay, you have to get our demo license first, good for 30 days. But who knows, you might find enough other uses for PStill to convince you to buy it. And if you already own PStill, you know how easy it is to batch up some PDFs.
