qpictopdf - picture to pdf converter based on Qt5

qpictopdf will convert one or many pictures into one pdf file.
The picture(s) can be easily selected in a tree view.
It uses convert from ImageMagick to concatenate 2 images into 1 and then create 1 pdf file from the image(s).

Please note, that there is no option to scale to a specific page size.
Pictures are turned into a pdf page as is, with whatever size they originally have.
The program is designed for archiving purposes - re-viewing on screen, not creating printable pages.

As of version 0.9.90 qpictopdf also supports to concatenating 2 pictures into 1, horizontally or vertically.

qpictopdf has only a few options:
- Set output directory manually or always to the source directory (where the images are located)
- Set the pdf/jpg file name manually or get a suggestion - currently this is no longer trying to be smart and simply adjusts the suffix: result.jpg/pdf
- Can concatenate every 2 images into 1 before creating pdf file
- Define the pdf quality and size via the compress type and quality settings
- Can concatenate 2 pictures into 1, horizontally or vertically - this will create a picture of type of the 1st input file, not a pdf, jpg only tested so far
- Can delete the selected picture(s) after successful pdf/jpg creation
    Careful, files are really deleted from disk (after confirmation)!
