What you need to convert a PGM file to a PDF file or how you can create a PDF version from your PGM file
Files of the type PGM or files with the file extension .pgm can be easily converted to PDF with the help of a PDF printer.
A PDF printer is a virtual printer which you can use like any other printer. The difference to a normal printer is that a PDF printer creates PDF files. You do not print on physical paper. The PDF printer prints the contents of the source file into a PDF file.
In this way, you can create a PDF version from any file which can be printed. Just open the file with a reader, click the "print" button, choose the virtual PDF printer and click "print". If you have a reader for the PGM file, and if the reader can print the file, then you can convert the file to a PDF.
