    Contact sheet/collage generation soft

    Hi Folks,

    I want to generate the contact sheet from set of jpeg and raw files. I know that Picasa could do it, but I'd like to find open source program that can do the same. While googling I found plugin for Gimp, but it allows only batch processing of all files in the folder, I need to choose photos before. Ideally if software would understand raw formats.

    Thank you.

    Could look at digiKam or F-spot since they are closer to Picasa.

    Hi geneross,
    There's Gnome Photo Printer and PhotoPrint... both under Add/Remove programs. I can't vouch for either since I haven't tried them yet, but it looks like they both do what you are looking for.

    Come to think of it...I may have to give PhotoPrint a try myself!
    It's not a "Bug", it's a "Feature"...

    Thank you.
    Gnome Photo Printer is better suited just for printing.
    photoprint don't want to start complaining on absence of libgutenprint.so.2 8.10 and I'm unable to find this version of library in repos. Have you been successful with PhotoPrint?

    digiKam and f-spot are definitely closer. I didn't found that type of functionality in f-spot and will digiKam, thank you.

    Didn't expect F-spot would, but digiKam has a lot of photo editing capabilities either by default or optional so that would be a good one to look into.

    For all those interested I've put in a request for F-Spot to have this feature: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=603936
