That is a good suggestion.  But it sounds tedious to me.

ImageMagick can convert images to pdf files on the command line.

  $ convert file1.jpg file1.pdf

And pdftk can concatenate them.

  $ pdftk file*.pdf cat output combined.pdf

You can install them with:

  $ sudo apt-get install imagemagick pdftk
