I want to view a PDF document that contains images only. Displaying them in m by n is very convenient to compare one with the others. Shortly speaking, how to display m by n pages in Adobe Reader 10?

You really can't. I looked, and tried a couple of popular alternative PDF reader programs, but I could not find anything to do what you want. – KCotreau Jul 12 '11 at 15:41
@KCotreau: OK no problem. I will use LaTeX to create a new PDF document where each page contains 4 pages of the original document. It can be done easily using pdfpages package. :-) – xport Jul 12 '11 at 15:46

It appears that in Adobe Reader and many other PDF viewers the best you can get is 2 by N pages. In Adobe Reader set Page Display as Two Page Scrolling.

Possible workaround: Printing to PDF file Multiple pages per sheet.

In Adobe Reader go to Print, in Page Handling set Page Scaling to Multiple pages per sheet and set desired m by n pages per sheet.

Many PDF printing tools are listed in How to print documents to pdf.
