As i wrote earlier on this list, i made a modified version of
scribalbum.py in order to automatically produce a photo-book
in 6x9 in size, with full bleed, to be printed using lulu.com services.
It worked perfectly and the printed version is amazing.
The features are:

- auto generation of book, picking pictures from a specified directory
- possibility to auto-rotate pictures according to EXIF information and
to rename them using EXIF date tag (using jhead and exiftran)
- auto positioning and scaling of images, two each page, according to
their orientation
- auto generation of correctly positioned label for each image, using
image name (without extension)

Now my problem is that the script works very well in scribus 1.2.2, but
completely fails in 1.3 cvs. Can someone tell me what has changed in the
API that mess up my design? (seem something changed with
"setScaleImageToFrame" maybe?)
As this is the first time i ever do something similar to a computer
program, i have no idea at all.
thanks in advance.
