comment Is there a simple program to lay out images on a series of pages for linux?
That's a neat answer, thanks. I did forget about links vs embeds... The only reason I am hesitant to use this method is because I have to do all this quite a lot over the course of the day and I would rather have a streamlined solution. I think I'll try making a simple app that does just this if I have the time to because it will save me a lot of work in the long run.

@mrdwab Yeah, that's what I thought but I will try it again as it might still fit the bill.

Yeah, it applies a transparency to the image when moving and I guess it's not very efficient. The computer I am using it on isn't the best either. So yeah, I'll definitely give scribus another try. Thanks :)

@mrdwab That's a good idea, I'm sure it would be easy enough to script something like that. Might actually do that, thanks!

I do know about scribus, I've used it several times and while I do like it, it is just a bit over the top for what I need. I don't really want a full DTP app with all those features that I would never use but it seems like there are no real alternatives out there. Thanks for your answer!

Scribus is certainly very good and I might end up using it again. I was just hoping for a more basic alternative which didn't have all the extra bells and whistles that I wouldn't be using anyway. Thanks for the answer!

@mrdwab Generally, yeah, the aspect ratios are the same but it is not always the case. There are also instances when I need to have two quarter page graphs and one half page graph on the same page. I'll give scribus another go, it probably does what I want but it just seems to be a bit over the top because I don't need a full desktop publishing suite to do such a simple job. I hope that made sense.

@Lollero It doesn't handle high resolution (3000x2000) images very well and when you have about 20 images of that resolution, it slows down a lot and makes moving them around a pain.

comment Is vectorizing an image copyright theft if the image is not CC/Public domain?
Ah yeah, but then there's also customs to think about. Its good to know that option exists and I'm not desperate anyway!

Thanks for the help, I had no idea that vectorizing was such a big deal before now!
