That's a very good idea ;-)

Fantastic: that is just THE answer I was looking for!
Thanks a lot for this information.
I'm not interested in the directory by the way, as all the photos of a book
are stored in a specific folder.

If you need to do this a lot, you might consider trying out the script I

I don't think this will be necessary; nor will it be very convenient as I
can move photos from one page to another all along the creating process,
till I'm satisfied with the layout of the whole book.

I'm on Linux.

Thanks for your answer. Thix will make my work much more easier, as I will
be able to check which photo I'm playing all along the work on the book.


PS: for those who would like to work on the GUI improvement, I'd recommend
the grouping of all images info in the same place (Right-Click Info,
Right-Click More Info, Properties Image, Extra Images Management).
