What's all this then?

Manual Labor is a simple tool to bind a folder full of image files into a PDF with a little more control, less tediousness, and nicer results than what comes with the OS. The stock Preview app can do assemble images into a PDF, but is annoying with lots of files and has some quirks and shortcomings that I wasn’t satisfied with.


Put the app wherever you like. Manual Labor should work fine on Mac OS X 10.5 and up, and is native for PPC as well as 32- and 64-bit Intel systems.


Drop a folder - or more than one - onto the application icon. A PDF will be generated for each dropped folder. You'll be asked where you want the PDF saved, and offered the option to include the contents of subfolders and to generate an outline. You can also launch the app and drop folders on the window or select them with a command in the File menu.


If you have any questions or suggestions about Manual Labor, please send mail to with, preferably, a subject line that includes the name "Manual Labor."

If you'd like to remove Manual Labor from your system, just drag the application to the trash. You may also wish to remove the settings file - com.splook.Manual-Labor.plist - from the Library/Preferences directory in your home folder.
