Or you can go to File>automate and you can generate a pdf that way too.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "In the menu dialog next to method".

Do you mean Image> Adjustments> Exposure... then click okay?

Yes, I think that is what he meant (it's the only option that makes sense there).

And unless you are working with High Dynamic Range images or floating point data - you probably don't want to be in 32 bit/channel floating point mode.

Chris, Thanks. I think my jpeg image is just too big to convert to PDF (47150px by 31316px).

Yep, that is larger than the 30,000 pixel limit for saving PDF in Photoshop.

Check the document mode and bit depth.
PDF does not support all color modes or bit depths.

Also, PDF has some limits on the document size and won't support anything over 30,000 pixels in either dimension.
