Convert BMP files to PDF

Hello,

What is the best way to convert BMP files to PDF?

A few days ago someone scanned some documents for me so I can send them to another party via email. I just assumed they'd come back as PDFs but when I opened the folder today, I discovered that all of the scans were saved as bitmap files — at about 24 MB each. The documents are simple black and white (eg tax forms, accounting reports, etc.) but they include a large number of pages and I would really like to avoid rescanning them if possible.

Is there a good way to convert BMP files to PDF and what application would you use?

Hopefully something in Windows 7 or MS Office 2013, etc. will do it.

Thanks
