I tried this software some days ago and it does work as described. It worked fine on my Win 7 PC but for some reason it crashed on my laptop which has Windows Vista installed.
Another great software that i use to convert my images to PDF is this one :
The only option missing in this software is that you can't set margins as in PDFill. Otherwise it's a great application too.
