Creating a collage with FOSS


(Rick Scheibner) #1

I need to create a collage of 4 images and would prefer to use a FOSS application. It doesn’t have to be fancy, I just need it to be I was looking around in digiKam for this feature but can’t find it. Thanks for whatever help you can offer me.

Digicam uses ImageMagick as the back end. Here’s a collage done directly with ImageMagick at the command line:

About as simple as it gets.

Edit: Oops. Scratch that. You meant DigiKam. I don’t know what is the backend for that software.

Thanks, I’m not used to using a command line much (although I’m certain I could learn it).

Work around: After messing around in digiKam, I went to print creator, arranged them close to how I needed them to be, and then output as an image file. It’s not perfect, but it’s good enough for my needs.

You could try PhotoCollage. It’s simple but it works fine and is easy to use.

@Rick Try the G’MIC plugin in GIMP. A forum member was asking about it recently. Don’t mind the CLI part; it actually should be controlled via the GUI. See: GMIC CLI Montage Commands Between Versions.

Certainly can use Gimp and g’mic

Thanks guys, I’ll check those resources out. I’ll look into G’MIC first; I didn’t know it had that feature.

The G’MIC Montage was just what I needed. It took me about 10 minutes to learn how everything works, so it wasn’t too steep of a learning curve. Appreciate the recommendation on that.
