To start with, you should not use PictureBox...

You can not "convert" an image to pdf. A pdf is a docuemnt format, you can only add an image to a pdf document. You can use iTextSharp for example: http://www.mikesdotnetting.com/Article/87/iTextSharp-Working-with-images[^]

A 5, but... such operation as "convert to PDF" is used in practice, but of course it is something like you say... You may call this expression a figure of speech. :-)

From what I understood, it seems that the image is containing text and you want to convert it to PDF. Is this correct?

If yes, you will need to use the OCR for that. OCR will recognize characters from the image and saves is as PDF. I know a third-party SDK that support OCRing images and save them as PDF. There is an online demo you can try. Here is the link for the demo:
