Warning ****untested***

Why not use Scribus, 40 photos?

Make a page 40 image frames and import into each, the photo you want.
Call this an index page, it will "document" the paths to the images.
Save this page as index.sla

Arrange them to suit

Open index.sla and add the number of pages you desire at the end of
the forst page.

Then either copy and paste or cut and paste from the index page to the
other pages.

Now delete the first page and save the remainder under a new name.
