Topic: Converting Images to PDF

Hi All,
This is my first post and was browsing through other ppls query but cant seem to find an answer to mine.

Well i am using Acrobat Reader 7.0 and developing a pdf creator using the its classes.

I am using the following AcroAppClass
and AcroAVDocClass.

The process i am using is to convert selected images into PDF, the conversion happens smoothly.
But when i add a document , word file or so
to the same pdf... the images get reduced to a thumbnail and even print incorrectly

This is the way i create the image file

Private Sub ProcessImage(ByVal strIFN As String, ByVal lngOrderId As Long)

Dim strImagespath ="C:\Images"

strIFNImages = "Img01"

Dim oAcroApp As New AcroAppClass
Dim oAvDoc As New AcroAVDocClass
'To get the PDF version
Dim oPdDoc As CAcroPDDoc

Dim intCtr As Integer = 1
Dim strImageFile As String
strImageFile = strImagespath & strIFNImages

oAvDoc.Open(strImageFile, "")
oAvDoc = CType(oAcroApp.GetActiveDoc, AcroAVDocClass)

If oAvDoc.IsValid Then
oPdDoc = CType(oAvDoc.GetPDDoc, CAcroPDDoc)
oPdDoc.Save(1, Path.Combine(strImagespath, intCtr & FileExtension.PDF))
intCtr = intCtr + 1
oPdDoc = Nothing
End If

oAvDoc = Nothing
oAcroApp = Nothing

Catch sysex As Exception
Throw New CCSException(sysex, CCSErrorCodes.ProcessImageFailed, strIFN)
oTwrUtil = Nothing

End Try

End Sub

At the end of this, a merge method is called
I have noticed the Image PDFs get created with a resolution = 496%
While the document files get created with 118% resolution.

I would be thankful for any advice on what to do
