  • create custom wallpapers from photographs
  • create previews of multiple images for sites like deviant art or for designers' clients
  • create pictures for a printing service that only supports pictures of certain size and the client needs lots of smaller pictures
Screenshots
Installationnone - 100% portable
Using the applicationRun the .exe, drag and drop images, save the result
Uninstallingjust delete the .exe
Known IssuesSince I was working on this 1 hour ago, I am sure, there are issues, but they are not yet known to me.  ohmy

This is great and very useful for me. Thanks.

Just a very minor thing : misspelling of Erase (Rease all), and a suggestion : mouse-over shows individual image name in the status-bar.

Works great and very useful!

I think this will prove very useful to use with a screenshot program that makes it easy to drag and drop images to your program (like my Screenshot Captor -- sorry for the plug!).  Great for producing combination images.

One feature request: Ability to remove individual images.

Thanks for the feedback and thanks for the donation, mouser smiley

I have fixed the typo, but I do not think I have enough time to add the requested features before the deadline. I'll try to have them ready tomorrow, they are not too difficult.

Implemented the requested features. You can now see the image name in status bar and you can drag and drop pictures to swap their positions or to remove them (drag them out to remove).

A nice, simple tool. I hope you'll continue to increase the number of features, i.e. add borders around the photos, control the distance between, etc. smiley

This is awesome, seems like a simple thing but so handy .I am using it to collect my third grader's photos so I can print them out for her science project. Usually what I end up doing is putting them in Word, wasting time resizing them and getting the wrapping properties right. This is instant. I can think of other uses for it, too.

I also agree with JavaJones above that having the option of white borders (margins) between the images would be a plus.  Maybe a standard number, say, 30 pixels.  Or perhaps allow user to choose the actual margin width.

Thanks!

I third it, and I would also like to see an option to fill in space created by non-equally-sized images (which work fine even though this is meant for equally sized images) with "transparent" instead of black.

And it is super useful.

OK, here is a small update - version 1.1 can be downloaded from http://download.rw-designer.com/1.1/ImageGrid.exe

I have added a new button that cycles between 3 margin presets: no margins (default), small margins and large margins.
Another change is that the background color for images of different sizes (and now also for margins) is white rather than black. If you use .png when saving, these areas will remain transparent (as in the original version).

Love the simplicity of the software.

Could it be possible to 1.  Show a delete images button and selecting the images to be deleted with a ctrl key selection, and 2.  have a simple crop function to crop all images to the same size.

You can delete images by dragging them out of the canvas.

Regarding the second request, could you describe the use case, where this feature would be useful?

This is the reason I proposed a crop feature.

As we all know, not all images are the same size and as of now, I believe your software will save the images in the same size as the originals but instead of saving them as a size equal to all others, they may be different sizes and sometimes that does not look good.  That I why I proposed a crop feature.  The crop feature I proposed probably isn't like the others you see in other software.  The crop feature I was talking about will determine the size of the smallest picture in the collage and set the crop box to that specific size.  However, the crop box should be able to be moved on each image for the best end product.

I hope I have not confused you even more.

I guess I understand. Though, I will probably not add that feature, because it is not directly tied to the main functionality and more importantly, it would require a big change of the user interface. I may make another tool specialized for just this.

It is always nice to see when one's software is worth a blog post  Kiss If a DC'er is behind this, they have my thanks.

By the way, I recently had the opportunity to run Image Grid on Wine (on Linux), and it worked perfectly!
