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!

The Windows version of Picasa runs under wine (requires X and it's a resource hog).
