seeking photo-image printing and formatting tools


Can someone recommend tools or applications that make an easy task of formatting a page with multiple photo images -- something like a "contact sheet" or "proof sheet"?

The images might have several different sizes or resolutions and so I'd like to regular-ize or normalize the images prior to printing.
I have been doing this with GIMP and pasting images into a web-page-template. There must be some application or utility designed to make printing image collections in various organized displays.

I have frequent need to put several images onto the same printed page. One situation is before vs. after images. Another situation presents multiple views of the same subject to display unique details. Still another situation presents several images from an event to aid in selection of the best ones to share.

Thanks in advance,
~~~ 0;-Dan

I would look at ImageMagick. I rarely found it worth scripting anything, but you can resize and join with command line and Imagemagick.

When enhancement is required, I never found anything unix to beat gimp.

I'm aware of the ImageMagick suite, but thanks for that reminder.
What I seek is an application or tool that will let me provide some number of image files as input, and then request 3x5 or 5x7 or "contact" images as output, portrait vs. landscape, page margins, etc. The tool would then do the needed crunching to make the pages that I configured.

You are so right about GIMP. I've even converted a few win-dose colleagues to GIMP. First, it was the cost savings over proprietary alternatives. Then they saw that the feature set met or exceeded their own technical needs.

Thanks,

My Linux Mint + Cinnamon workstation has Eye of Gnome as the default image viewer.
I can't speak for other gnomes (sic).
