interesting task...

i've googled a bit and found two possible solutions:

- with geeqie allows to create collections (geeqie is the image 
previewer i normally use... so i may be interested in digging into this 
- http://www.sign-el-soft.hu/cgi/ng-xim.en.html
- krename

since i'm not on my home computer i could not test any of those 
solutions... but i will test geeqie as soon as possible.

i could also think of a solution using openoffice (i've created a very 
effective "maquette" builder with oo.org.

so: there are some possible solutions.

in order to give you further advices, i guess i should know more about 
the project (like: how many picture per page?)
