    Photo Printing Software??

    Hello,
    simple question really. Can anyone recommend some decent photo printing software. I have tried Gnome Photo Printer and PhotoPrint.
    Photoprint would be perfect, but for some reason doesn't like my printer.
    Gnome Photo Printer doesn't give me the control I need over layout, or resolution, paper type, etc.
    Shotwell and Gthumb don't seem to have the facility to print multiple photos in one go on a single sheet. So I am kind of stuck.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas??

    Picasa I find is the best - even though its a wine app, it works just find in linux.

    F-Spot has also got the printing abilities.

    I had the same problem in Gnome, no control over printer properties which is a shame as I like the set up options for the prints. Where in Fstop is the setting for the printer properties found? I looked there first and couldn't find anything.

    gThumb can, in fact, print multiple photos on a single page.

    mjc1 I downloaded Gthumb and cannot print at all. When I click on print nothing happens and I can't even find anything in the manual on printing. Please help? It looks like a viewer only.

    Hi,

    If you'd like to give Shotwell another go, 0.9 now supports printing more than one image per page. To do this:

    1. In any area of the application where it's possible to highlight multiple images, do so.
    2. Choose File -> Print....
    3. In the printing dialog, choose Image Settings.
    4. Choose Autosize, and in the drop-down menu, choose one of the multiple-images-per-page options.

    Version 0.9 is available from the Shotwell PPA, or you can get the source from our SVN repository at svn://svn.yorba.org/trunk/shotwell .

    Yorba, I would love to try that version but here is my problem. In order to install the latest Shotwell I need Vala version 0.11.7 and the only vala I found and installed was version 0.10. I am stumped. Can't find that version anywhere and that's the version the terminal tells me I need (Shotwell requires Vala compiler 0.11.7 or greater. You are running 0.10.4.)

    You only need Vala if you're installing from source. You can grab Vala version 0.12 from the vala-team PPA:
