I have a folder contains a number of images. I'd like to render a single (large) image that shows image thumbnails, along with the filename.

Can anyone recommend some good software for achieving this?

Adobe Photoshop can do this (is called "Contact sheet" function), but you haven't mentioned if it's OK with commercial software or not. – TFM Jun 25 '10 at 17:29
I don't have Photoshop - freeware is preferable. – Rezzie Jun 25 '10 at 17:36

IrfanView is free and has a "contact sheet" option from the thumbnails dialog.

Thanks - perfect! Didn't know the term "Contact sheet" :-) – Rezzie Jun 25 '10 at 17:47
"Contact sheets" are copies of images on a film, printed on photo paper for a quick overview: – TFM Jun 25 '10 at 19:51
