Looking for good Photo album software...

Anyone know of any good photo album type software that will allow me to print proof type sheets or arrange multiple photos of different sizes on a page so I can print them?

Most will have some meaningful blurb in their pkg-descr files with an URL to screenshots, etc.
 
I've ruled most of those out because they don't have the printing ability that I am really looking for.

The closest I've come to finding anything is gqview, but it bombs out when I try and print mulitple pictures unless I resize all my pictures to 800x600 then it seems to work printing multiple. But it still doesn't give me the ability to put 2 wallet size pictures and a 3x5 on the same print out for example.

I keep thinking this is something I'll have to write myself. I just don't think my wife and daughter are that patient to print out their zoo pictures :)

I guess you could hack something together with plain HTML, using the <img> tag with size options to generate a page with the pics you want. Just a small script which generates the HTML code, inserts the filename of the image between the <img> tags, and press 'print' in your web browser ;)
It'll probably not play nice with aspect ratios, of course.
 
That's a good thought. I was thinking of going down the entire gimp plugin or add on to an existing app like Mirage or gqview, but I think I'll try the HTML route.

I actually had to write a PHP script that dealt with aspect ratio years ago...hopefully I still have it somewhere thanks for thanks idea!
