A really quick little GUI application for Win/Lin/* that can tile an image into a big image with customizable borders and such. It is intended for printing multiple "wallet" size photos on a 4x6 photo.
Tiler will take an image and generate a new image by tiling it. You can setup how to tile the image and configure things like border size and colors. The goal of this project is to make an easy way to print multiple wallet size photos on a single 4x6.
The reason I wrote this is because we wanted wallet size photos of our daughter, Kailey. We have digital versions of most of our photos and usually just order prints from FutureShop's photo finishing service. However a sheet of 8 wallets costs $5.00 while a 4x6 that, in my opinion, can hold 4 wallet size photos is only $0.50. So the pictures end up being a bit smaller but they are dirt cheap.
The app itself is written in Python and using PIL and wxPython (hence the huge Windows binary size). Using it should be pretty easy. Just try it out and convert some of your images and look at the result.
Tiler also comes with libtile.py. It is a Python script to tile images programmatically. It provides all the same features as the GUI and is rather easy to use. Documentation on using it is provided in the source code.
