This quick tutorial is going to show you a really simple photo collage maker application called PhotoCollage.
Although Ubuntu has fotowall in its repositories, PhotoCollage make things much easier.
PhotoCollage is a free and open source tool written in Python. It assembles the input photographs you give it to generate a big poster. Photos are arranged to fill the whole poster, however you can influence the algorithm to change the final layout. You can also set a custom border between photos, and save the generated image in the resolution you want.
- generate random new layouts until one suits the user
- choose border color and width
- save high-resolution image
- works even with a large number of photos (> 100)
- integrates into the GNOME environment
- available in English and French
