A good photo manager / printing app for Linux?

Postby eduardhc » Sun Oct 22, 2006 12:11

Hi,
¿Is there for Linux any good app, aplet, whatever that allows to print a group of photos at standard photo sizes like 9x13, 10x15, etc... in just one step? I mean, something as simple as the Windows XP Print Wizard: you select a group of photos in Explorer, choose the printer, printer settings, paper layout, and it's done! It takes care of arranging the photos at the desired size on the paper, etc...

I've tried digiKam, F-Spot, etc... But none of them seems to be able to print more than one photo at once. Well, F-Spot can do it, but it prints every photo in a single page, which means a big waste of paper (you could fit 4 9x13 photos in a A-4 sheet).

Or, if it can be done with any of these apps please tell me how!

Best regards,
Eduard

Auto-quoting me from the x86 forum, where I posted the same question and got the same suggestion :D:

I really like Picasa, in fact is what I preferably use in Windows XP. However, I was looking for something more Linux-native, as the Linux Picasa is just the Windows version run over Wine (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Thank you for your suggestion, any way.


Cheers,
Eduard
