Adds new pages to the PDF with given image paths.
This is a convenience function. It creates pages (DynaPDF.AppendPage), reads image format (DynaPDF.ReadImageFormat) and resolution (DynaPDF.ReadImageResolution) and places image on page (DynaPDF.InsertImageFile).
Returns number of images added. Because TIFF files can include several images, this count may be higher than the number of file paths.


Create PDF with images:

Set Variable [$pdf; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.New")]
# Set destination path
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "DynaPDF.OpenOutputFile"; $pdf; "/Users/cs/Desktop/test.pdf")]
# Add pages
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "DynaPDF.AppendImagePages"; $pdf; "/Users/cs/Desktop/Auto2.JPG¶/Users/cs/Desktop/Auto4.JPG¶/Users/cs/Desktop/Auto1.JPG"; 300 )]
# Save
Set Variable [$PDFData; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Save"; $pdf; "hello.pdf")]
# Cleanup
