That's more the performance I'd be hoping for (indeed given the different 
machine specs I'd be hoping for better!).  I'm also using hpijs as the 
driver.    The individual picture filesizes on disk are mostly 1.2Mb, some 

I've just tried setting up a print for a single 1.2Mb image, printing it as 
though it was one of four (9x13cm on A4).   Print quality in the Printer 
Properties dialog is set to 'Photo on Photo Paper'.   It took about 45 
seconds (better than last night, but this was only one image!) to produce a 
51Mb file.

0.7.2, installed from Mandriva LE2005 discs.  Kipi-plugins from the same 
source.   (This whole thing is on a new LE2005 install, so I don't think it's 
any conflict I've set up!). 

I'm just wondering if the version of Print Wizard is wrong.   Looked at the 
Help->About Print Wizard in the dialogue, and it says 

Print Wizard 0.1.0-cvs using KDE3.4.0

and the copyright says 2003-2004.

However if I select 'letter' paper size it does list the Album Collage 
options, which I didn't think were in there until this year.
