I like it, yes!

I should make it clear I had no hand in programming it, though I did get 
inside the code to work out how to add in other page layouts.

Just to check understanding (as I'm not with you on 'aspect ratio crop') - do 
you mean a resizing which fits the *whole* picture into the available print 
slot (rather than fitting one of the dimensions and leaving some to be 
cropped out to fit the other)?  If so, I'd agree it would be a good

I'd certainly agree with that - but having looked at the code it would take a 
little rewriting to achieve it.  

At present, the paper sizes and layouts for images are hard-coded into the 
program; I don't think it would be too difficult to make the program read a 
configuration file instead.   What might be trickier is working out a 
sensible GUI approach to the creation of custom paper sizes and layouts.

Is Todd reading this list at the moment?
