Converting images to PDF offers more advantages than an individual JPG or TIFF image file itself. While images format such as JPG is ideal for image formatting purposes, there are limitations. JPGs are generally not good for small images or images with textual data. Neither is it good for repeatedly edited images. What's more, when printing up images, the print quality of an image depends upon the Pixel dimension. The Pixel dimension for screen and print resolution are absolutely different. Therefore, when it comes to the printing factor, what you get on screen isn't necessarily what you'll get on paper. However, when in the PDF format, you can print up exactly what you see and what you want.
We can not deny that PDF is easy to take and print. Meantime, it's safe to keep. Out of security consideration, if you encrypt your PDF file, it is hard for others to change the file content. Say you are a lawyer, you need keep the proofs. If you keep the images somewhere, maybe you will worry that someone will steal it or change it.
