If you have entered this page not through my homepage I prefer that you enter this page through www.sullockenzlin.demon.nl and choose the topic Gimp, but it is not necessary.
This page is divided in the following sections. For fast jumping through this page click on the topic.
An indexprint or contactsheet is an image that traditionally contains the negative images of an entire roll of film. Photographers used such sheets to index prints or as a proof page to decide which prints to enlarge.
Indexprint is a very useful tool to show the contents of a folder, for web design projects and galleries, personal work, or just to have a record of any archive folder in your (external) hard drives. Indexprint let you easily preview and catalog groups of images by displaying a series of (small) images on a single page or multiple pages.
From version 3.20 on indexprint has the possibility to show the exif information 'date and time', 'iso', 'speed', and 'F-number' if exist otherwise 'no exif data' will be printed. From version 3.31 and higher also JPEG XR formats can be printed. From v4 on the interface has been rebuild and also some new features has been added.
For detailed installation notes (windows, Linux) scroll down (also for lineborder 2 and other plugins).
Indexprint (or contactsheet) is a python script that generates an indexprint or contactsheet containing a configurable number of (positive) images. If there are more images than fits on the page, new contactsheets are created. Also, the image name to the images can be printed.
The pictures above are samples how indexprint/contactsheet works. For the default indexprint I have defined only three pictures on a row and three rows. I also wanted the filename including the extension printed. As result all pictures are scaled and centered within there respective minipages.
Besides indexprint/contactsheet function you can use the program also in a creative sense. Put a lot of photos, pictures in a directory, set number of columns and rows very high, and create a "random mosaic picture" with given images.
You can download in the download section the latest version of the indexprint/contactsheet plugin. The plugin placed here is fully functional and free and also published at the GIMP registry. Download and use of the plugin is at your own risk. From time to time the plugin placed on the GIMP registry will be updated with a newer version from this site. See for version 3 and 4 (http://registry.gimp.org/node/24503) and for version 2 (http://registry.gimp.org/node/120).
