PostPosted: Mon 04 Feb 2013, 10:51    Post subject:  Consolidating jpg images into one file  

What is my best option to do this? I have 13 named jpg files that I would like to put into one file (retaining the names of the jpg files), for easier viewing. What is the best tool to use to do this?

I am using Puppy Linux 5.2.8

I host a radio show and the jpg files represent scanned LP liner notes. At the station we use XP Pro for the operating system. I would love to have all the jpgs in one file so that it is easier to access at the station and also at home on my Puppy driven laptop.

Thanks Semme! I'll see if I can find a pet to install and see what happens.

Do you want to stitch the JPEGs into one large image, or have something like a PDF document with separate pages that you can flip through?

I'd like to try both so that I can see which one I like best. If I go with the PDF option, I have to make sure that I see the names of the jpg files so I can quickly look for the song info when I am doing my show.

Also, where do I get the Imagemagick pet?

Thanks!!

Having given this some thought, you might be better off with an image organizer. Unbeatable for searching..

How much resolution do you need on the images? Could you just import them into a word processing document and add the necessary text underneath each one?

XnView lets you easily create contact sheets in jpg format.
Select your images, then >Create>Contact Sheet

You can run XnView through Wine on Puppy, or on XP.

There's actually a Linux version of XNView, but it can be a little clunky to use, interface-wise. (They also have a Linux version of XNView MP, but I haven't tried it.)

You can download the Linux version of XNView from its homepage, though not in a click-and-install form (the MP version may only be available from their forums, I don't remember), or you can try the Puppy .pet versions found elsewhere on this forum (use this page to search for them).

If you do already have Wine installed, however, the Windows version might actually indeed be a better bet - it's on a 1.9x version, as opposed to the Linux version's 1.7.0.

Correct, the Linux version is not as good as the Win one.

Also, rmcellig, you might want to look at XnView's >Create>Web Page.

Using that, you can get a sort of a contact page + all the links to the individual pictures, all in one.

Having had to proof this for myself, I can say I'm pleased with the results. Outstanding granular control..
