I have a few hundreds of images and I'd like to generate a "gallery" out of it. The problem is I'd like to have it in ODT or at least in PDF(or sth that I can print nice to PDF). It will be printed, it should look neutral (it's an grave reference for archaeology paper) each image will have caption. Images have different sizes. What software would you suggest?
Install Imagemagick. Then open a command window or terminal. Assuming all your images are jpegs & they live in the current directory, type:
This will generate thumbnails, 6 to a row, each tile exactly 60x60, with the aspect ratio preserved, so there might be some blank around your image.
Your output might look like:
See this article, "Convert JPG to PDF (or other image formats to PDF)".
The idea behind this article is simple enough : combine an image-viewer software, such the Windows Photo Printing Wizard, Picasa, or IrfanView, together with a virtual PDF printer. You then just print the images you choose to the pdf printer, to generate the gallery as a pdf file.
