in reply to 300 images to lay out... RTF or ODT?

not sure understand your question properly...anyway: - resize graphics with image-magick, and embed in ODT with RTF::Writer or such OR - you'd be surprised how much time doing it other ways eats you might be better off just to use a good page layout application instead....e.g. Scribus (PC/Mac/Linux) or Pages 2 (iMac) etc. good luck

    The graphics are at 300 dpi and do not need to be resized for printing. They're about 300 of them too, and laying them out... oui! I've done it before and they can be autoplaced.

    The only problem with Scribus (I've checked) and Pagemaker (Mac/Windows) is that they don't offer mass-layout of graphics. It's a comic book from a webcomic using newspaper-like formatting for the graphics. The layout's rather complicated.

    Thankfully RTF is an open standard.
