Go into the tools menu and click "create multi-page file". From there choose PDF as the output format, then select your TIFF file. Set the directory you want to save it to & the filename you want in the appropriate fields, then click "create". If your TIFF file is multipage, the PDF will also be multipage.
You can also combine multiple single page TIFF, multiple different multipage TIFFs, or multiple images of different formats into a single multipage PDF (or TIFF, or a few other formats.

The tools->create multi-page method is the only way to create multipage files, regardless of your source material, any other method will always result in single page files.

Also:

To set the type of compression used in the PDF file:

Tools | Options -- Read/Write -- Write -- PDF

And to view the resulting PDF file:

Tools | Options -- Read/Write -- Read -- EPS/PS/AI/PDF -- Set the DPI to be used for rasterisation.

The default DPI value of 72 may produce poor quality images.

Thank you for your quick response. I tried that but "CREATE" option is disabled. I gave everything which was required. But still i am not able to execute..
One more doubt can we convert multiple files which contains multiple pages at one short from TIFF to PDF ????
I feel because of this reason its not allowing me to execute.. Correct me if i am wrong !!!

Make sure the "insert all pages" option is checked, and that all fields are filled in.

I tested, and you can definitely compile multiple mutlipage TIFFs into a single PDF. Xnview is no capable of converting multiple TIFFs into seperate PDFs in one go, you have to do each one manually, though xnconvert could probably do it in one go.
