Contactsheet v2.xx
version 2.16 (released 28-nov-2011) and contactsheet smallscreen v2.11
  1. Fixed Bug "type-error" encoutered when working with newer software. This applies also to contactsheet-smallscreen.
version 2.15 (released 25-dec-2010)
  1. Fixed "not reading foreign characters". Now also for Linux users
version 2.14 (released 27-nov-2010)
  1. Fixed "not reading foreign characters".

  3. Pagecounter now equal to filecounter (request G.Sprik)
version 2.13 (released 18-june-2010)
  1. Added several new papers including two bannertypes.
version 2.12 (released 04-jan-2010)
  1. Added option to disable the extension to print. Useful if you wish only a name to the photo. I used it to print a lot of passport photographs (classroom of my child) on a single sheet.
  2. Added French language pack v1.0. Thanks to Hervé for the French translation.
  3. Updated Dutch language pack v1.4.
  4. Updated localization file.
version 2.11 (released 30-oct-2009)
  1. Added .bmp support.
  2. Updated Dutch language pack v1.3.
  3. Updated localization file.
version 2.10 (released 22-sept-2009)
  1. Added simple printing capabilities. You have to experiment with your printer for the best results. Very important: the plugin uses the default Gimp builtin printer driver (will be changed in future releases). Unfortunatly I cannot set any of the parameters (pagesize, margin, etc) you have to set the parameters of your printer first :(. Set margins in your printerdriver to zero and choose your correct papersize.
  2. Added .ps/.eps support. The special .ps/.eps version of contactsheet has been removed. Remember to add ghostview/ghostscript to GIMP if you want to select an .eps/.ps type image otherwise contactsheet refused to work. For this reason selecting "all registered types" in imagetypes will exclude .ep/.eps types of images.
  3. Fixed: "Under certain conditions it was possible that not all possible rows were placed on contactsheet". Problem has been solved.
  4. Code has been partly rewritten.
version 2.06
  1. Fixed: "It is possible that not all possible rows are placed on the contactsheet. These rows are placed on the next contactsheet." A miscalculation has been corrected. It was only visible when a large number of images per row was choosen without the filename option.
  2. Margin round the image can now be changed in tenth of a mm.
  3. Maximum number of images per row has been increased to 256.
  4. Maximum number of rows has been increased to 256.
  5. Maximum number of DPI has been increased to 1000.
version 2.05
  1. A little 'error' (a testlog command has not been set to off) has been corrected, nothing else has been changed. Look for "../tmp/gimp.log" on your system, delete this file.
version 2.04
  1. Fixed: "Set topmargin at least 5 mm otherwise contactsheet page will not be visible." Topmargin can now be as low as possible. It is the user responsebility to take care of the printable margin. For instance my printer (HP CP1700d) the left-right margin should be set at least 5mm otherwise that part of the image wil not be printed.
  2. Fixed: "Textfile (if option is checked) is not emptied wih each batch run so it will grow to infinity. You have to manually empty/delete this file." Textfile is now emptied before information is written.
version 2.03
  1. Margin round the image can now be changed from zero on.
  2. Added "sorted images" as option.
  3. Updated Dutch language pack to v1.2.
  4. Updated localization file.
  5. Fixed: "Files with an extension .j .jp .jpe .p .pc .t .ti .x .xc .pn , will be seen as images. If it is not a imagefile the plugin stops. Remove/move/rename all files with those extensions." It is not longer necessary to remove these files.
version 2.02
  1. Margin round the image can now be changed.
  2. Font size can now be choosen. Be aware that fontsize automatically will be scaled down to fit the image width.
  3. Added .XCF support.
  4. Added a choice to save a text filelist from the printed images with the directory name where the image is located. Useful if you have a lot of images in several directory's. Name is the same as the contactpage name but with the .TXT extension.
  5. Code has partly been rewritten.
version 2.01
  1. Dutch language pack added.
version 2.00
  1. Now possible to make contactsheet of a whole directory including subdirs.
  2. Two radiobuttons replaced by option buttons.
  3. Added several paperformats, including lettersized papers.
  4. Images are sorted in the way the systems sort the images.
  5. Added extension in the filename.
  6. Added support for pcx format.
  7. Added making contactsheets of all registered formats in one batch.
  8. Number of rows is now limited to paperheight (automatic scaled down if necessary).
  9. Images are automatically scaled and symmetrically placed within square minipages.
  10. Contactsheet modified to work also on Gimp version 2.6.
