Convert an image to pdf with cupsfilter

cupsfilter -f /Photo/sample.jpg -o  /Photo/0001bt9a.pdf > /Photo/Test.pdf

To get the notmal size of the image in pdf document its resolution has to be set to screen resolution,
otherwise the image will be too small.

There are 2 methods of converting to pdf in OSX.
The first is the unix pstopdf
The second is Mac OS X 10.5.3 Quartz PDFContext
The second is far more efficient producing files around 40% of the size of the first.
