how to make rows of image on one page?
Hi, I have a single image which I want to print 6 to a sheet. Basically 3 rows and 2 columns. I was told in one step how to do this and have forgotten. All i had to do was enter the percentage 200 x 300. Just don't remember which function did this.

thanks for the help

maybe this script IGLO (images grid layout)

http://registry.gimp.org/node/2236

does not have to be different images, the same image can be repeated.

Yes, all sorts of ways of doing this,

Personally, I am not too keen on IGLO, (but it does work) and would use Inkscape.

thanks for the help here...I've installed inkscape and made the tiles i want. The problem I'm having now, is I need this for print. When I try printing the image is huge and basically not fitting on the page. Is there a dpi setting or something to adjust?

A few ways, remember Inkscape is a vector app so dpi does not come in until you convert to a bitmap.

Assuming you used a standard inkscape page size, you could print straight off from Inkscape and there should be a dpi setting in the print dialog. From memory in windows it is the printer driver which allows scaling.

If you 'Save As' and use say png it saves from memory at default 96 dpi. If you saved as a PDF there is a setting for 'rasterization'.

or

A better bet is to 'Export Bitmap' this time no choice, it will be .png. Choose 'Page' and you can set a dpi value which really just governs the pixel dimensions of the image, for a decent print, use 300 dpi.
As a guide that would give a bitmap size for US letter of 2550 x 3300 pix
Open up in Gimp and print from there.
