So I was able to merge the jpeg pages into one file.

Trouble is, they save as thumbnails.

I can select 'actual size' and view it in actual size, but when I save it and go to the file, it opens into thumbnail size pages again.

I need for it to open to actual size since I'd like to be able to share this file by email so people can post it on FaceBook.

Any ideas?

Thanks

PDF is a multipage format which can store vector data (like text, lines etc.) and images.
JPEG is a singlepage image file format.

So, the only solution is to concat the pages at the right or bottom.
But the width and height of the JPEG format is limited to 32000 pixel. Also, large JPEGs may cause delays in the web browser or viewing app.

The PDF import pixel size depend on the import resolution. You can define them in the prefs part open/formats/pdf.
