Thread: Sw for printing photos

  1. #1

    Default Sw for printing photos

    Hello, I am looking for the sw to which I can say:

    these 4 photos with this dimensions I want to place to paper A4 and print it.

    GIMP is very sophisticated and Id prefer something much more simple.

    Any idea and recommendation?

    Thank you,

    Martin

    sounds like you are looking for the openSUSE HAL 9000 version...which
    will be standard in version 11.1 (or later)..

    it remains a very sought after upgrade (i, for example, have been
    waiting for it since 1968)...you can read about it here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAL_9000

    but, until SUSE provides that you might TRY OpenOffice.Org Writer:

    pop open Writer (check that it is set to print on A4) click on the
    blank document, then (on the menu) go

    Insert > Picture > From File

    then, in the just opened dialog choose the photo's file name that you
    want to add to the page ..

    once on the page, you can then 'grab' the photo with your left mouse
    button and place it where you want it...and, add more photos....and,
    play with the size...and and and and

    and press F1 to get the Writer's help dialog...then just say (into
    your computer's microphone) "HAL, show me the way to place a border
    around the picture"...and WAIT another 50 years...or, today you can
    just type in 'pictures' and look down the LONG list of instructions
    (which includes 'borders', and 'cropping and zooming' and all kinds
    of neato stuff)..

    when finished i guess all that will be left to say is "HAL, please
    print one copy, delete the document, open a new one, pick the next
    four photos from the same directory, and continue that way until you
    have produced a stack of A4s which include all the photos."

    it will happen, just wait!

    buckesfeld: I didnt see any dialog for multiple printing... although for one picture the dialog is good.

    DenverD: long articel, quite zero information....

    so to use Writer, I am afraid of loosing the quality - the same like MS Word.

    I am looking for sw or dialog where I can say (write, choose - for DenverD) this three photos/files with dimensions 13x9cm print one by one to one page. Nothing else.

    The problem is that if I want to print more photos in such dimensions to one page I must print it eg three times for one page. The Gwenview dialog works for it, I can put one to top, one in the middle, one below. But It doesnt work for four photos ... etc.

    Well goodness! If you want to be a snot about it... I can play!!

    I think Windows has software that will do what you want...

    GIMP is not that difficult to use... do you use PhotoShop? Just about the
    same.

    Qimage says they can do what you want:
    http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage/
    although they want $35 to $90 for it.

    Maybe if you used bigger paper you could get 4 per page?

    =========================

    DigiKam, as suggested by DeltaFlyer44 has an excellent wizard for printing
    multiple photos per page. Pretty slick, select all the photos you want on a
    page, click image -> print wizard, click and drool a few times... voila!
    4 photos on A4, aligned, sized, all automagically.

    AND... it won't LOOSE your quality like OpenOffice might. (Have you tried
    it? Your claims are yet unsubstantiated, it might work wonderfully)
    Remember, OpenOffice is NOT Microsoft's product.

    ==========================

    Oh yeah... we have a sense of humor here, I know I do. (you guys figured out
    what to watch?) It's not all "work" "work" "work". We're pretty good at
    finding solutions to problems... and generally have a decent time doing it.

    I'd seriously recommend Digikam. It will do what you're asking. And won't
    LOOSE any quality in the process.
