Update: PeasyGlue v1.8 lets you pick the amount of spacing between images. Note: The program has now moved to /usr/local/bin/peasyglue from /usr/sbin/peasyglue. Make sure that you are running the correct version. Delete the old one if necessary.

Update: Here is a money-saving tip for people who print their own digital photos. If your camera is set at the 4:3 aspect ratio, you can glue two photos together into a 4:6 image that is the exact size for photo paper.

To make this work a bit faster, PeasyGlue v1.6 can now save the glued image as a raw PNM file. This file is readable by PeasyPrint v2.5 and avoids having to temporarily convert the image into a JPEG.

Be aware that PNM files are large. You will probably want to delete them after printing.

-------------------------------------

PeasyGlue is a little app for joining graphic files together into rows or columns. By combining several rows vertically, you can also create a grid of images.

You can select images by using the File Chooser buttons. But it's easier to just drag files directly into the PeasyGlue input boxes. Please note that PeasyGlue can NOT process filenames or paths that contain spaces.

To make a shortcut, drag the file /usr/share/applications/peasyglue.desktop onto the desktop.

PeasyGlue creates some large temporary files, which are normally stored in /tmp. When working with big graphics files, you may run out of space, and gluing will fail. Here is a work-around.

1. Create the hidden file /root/.peasyglue
2. Enter the path of a location with lots of space, like /mnt/home
3. Save the file.
4. PeasyGlue will now use that temporary location instead of /tmp.

rcrsn51,

What a nice, handy, and compact image combiner. (It's very useful to me because I can never remember how to combine images using mtPaint.) Very Happy

I assume the "glued" image could also be saved to a .png instead of .jpg by using "pnmtopng".

Another useful tool in the "Peasy" series, thank you.

Regards,
s

Or I guess that v1.3 could give you that choice. Wink

Are you talking about the name of the output file? The program does NOT automatically add an extension to the filename - you need to include it yourself.

Oh, OK, I get it. Selecting jpg or png sets the file type, it does NOT append that extension. That has to be added by hand . . . . .

I'm much appreciating this new 1.6 update ...
...how could one ever be living without it...? (i'm joking of course Wink )

Updating its french locale ... and wondering about the «Aspect» button ... does it stand for «gluing two photos together into a 4:6 image that is the exact size for photo paper» assuming the photo papers size to be "Letter" size? ( Confused i'm ignoring what size is that paper here in Europe ...);

I've tried using this «Aspect» button after dragged two images.png (4:3 aspect ratio) in the upper fields + defined a file where to save the 4:6 image ...but nothing happened: no /tmp/gluetmp folder created nor any comment in the command line terminal ... Confused Question

...Hmmm!...and ... what if there are more than two photos ... Razz ? Does the new image also be shrinked into the Letter size?

Thanks for any answer!
Cheers, Charlie

You are right - the Aspect button is not well documented. It only works AFTER you have glued some images together.

I wrote it mainly to use with the Pattern feature. Suppose I make a pattern and want to print it on Letter paper using PeasyPrint. And I want it to fill the page.

With PeasyPrint, you can scale the width or height, but not both. It never changes the aspect ratio of the image. So if I want my pattern to fill the page without getting cropped, I need some information in advance about how to place it on the paper.

Printing images on photo paper is not a problem. I can use RPhoto and crop to the exact aspect ratio I need.

I recognize that the Aspect feature is not much value to an A4 user like yourself. Maybe I should remove the confusing Aspect button and only show that information after making a pattern.

I'm curious. In Europe is photo paper still 4x6, or do you buy a metric version?

Bill
