Uploading Forms – Converting JPEGs to PDFs

Athlete medicals and Police vetting forms are often scanned as images/JPEGS. These need to be converted to a single PDF in order to be uploaded to the online registrations. The below tutorials work for both Athlete Medical forms and Police Vetting forms.

You do not need to download any special software to convert JPEGS to PDFS.
