HOWTO print multiple photos in one page with Linux

If you need to print photos with conventional printers, one photo per page probably is not always good idea, because it is either too big, or waste too much paper and ink.

Luckily, in Linux there are at least 2 choices:
After select the photos you want to print:

  1. Shotwell: File->Print -> Page Setup.
    And in “Page per side”, you can choose how many photos you want to put in a page.
  2. Gwenview: Plugins -> Images -> Print Assistant -> Select page layout.

    I like gmic, it’s a powerful image tool.

    so I go to gwenview…. get 8 pictures I like…. click next and only the first picture is shown on the next screen. So I click print and only that first image is printed. What am I doing wrong?

      1. After you select Plugins->Images->Print Assistant, a dialog should pop up.
      a) the title of dialog should be “Print Assistant”
      b) a preview of the 8 picture in first page should be shown in the dialog
      2. From 1, clicking “Next” should bring you to crop photo.
      3. From 2, clicking “Finish” should bring you to the printing dialog.

      My Gwenview Version is 4.11.2, hope that helps.

    so shotwell sucks! Do I really need to put my images in shotwell too? the images in the inport screen are too small… I can’t see which ones I want.

      Have you tried gmic, as suggested in earlier comment?

        I got it taken care of…. thanks. Digikam works well. I think it uses the same print assist a gmic but I didn’t know how it works when I tried it wit gmic but I did when I tried it with digikam.
