How to create a photo index


I have nearly 500 photo and i must choose them carefully before sending them to a printing service via internet.

I would like to create A4 indexes, with let's say 6 colums and 4 rows so 24 thumbnails per page ( and it will be something like 22 pages ), with the file name written below each photo.

What can i use?

Thank you in advance.

I have tried now f-spot that comes with ubuntu 9.10, and it crashes...

Now trying gthumb with 8 photos for sheet, and it allows to print the file name... Let's hope...

I would write a little script to generate some latex... but I'm guessing you would not be so interested in that approach.

If, however you are interested, let me know.

Would be interesting but not now.

Gthumb wastes a lot of paper space. Now trying picasa... Seems to do the job in a better way ( even if i don't like closed source software i really need to do this task and soon ), but it isn't fast either in the print phase... Still waiting, but they are 280 15megapixel photos...

Well, at the end Picasa did the job quite well, i'm happy with the result.
