Is there a program for creating images of keyboard layouts? The program would be able to put a background image on each key but also provide its text. One could do it in Inkscape or such, but it would be nice to get rid any aligning problems, etc.

I wonder if you could use a graphical keyboard editor, then take a screenshot –  Journeyman Geek Mar 29 '13 at 7:54
@JourneymanGeek This does well for creating the initial layout and it is what I actually do. However this doesn't play terribly well with assigning backgrounds to the individual keys, one for each. –  naxa Mar 29 '13 at 9:46

Try this online Keyboard Layout Editor, where you can print your keyboard layout directly from your Web browser to a PDF/image file or just take screenshots therein.

the source code is available at github: github.com/ijprest/keyboard-layout-editor sunaku thanks for great advice! as a side note: please be careful in regarding a website as a 'program'. A website is a software-as-a-service. the only guarantee that it will be available regardless of its curator is that it's open source and free software. You can read the so-called franklin street statement which provides guidelines on how to make a saas program open and free. –  naxa May 21 '14 at 9:19
