    Multiple photos in one jpeg file

    Is there a simple program that would easily place several pictures on one piece of paper and produce the output in jpeg format e.g. six passport size images on a standard 6in x 4in print from a print shop. I can do it in my DTP program but it will not produce a jpeg file, I have also tried Photoshop Elements but without success.

    Qimage (www.ddisoftware.com) will do this easily.

    Picasa will do it as will the Gimp. Both are free.
    Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand

    My apologies, I don't think Picasa will do what the OP wants - you can print it but I don't think you can produce a jpg file. I misread the OP's request. However Gimp can do it as can Photoshop CS2 (which apparently is free).

    Though Picasa is no longer supported, it will still work. I hope that Google will release the code to the Open Source community; I think it's the best free photo management software I've found and may well be better than many paid for ones as well. This last comment is, of course, off topic.

    Note that, from Gimp 2.8, the native file format is XCF, which is similar to TIFF. To save a file as a JPEG, counter intuitively, you have to export the file rather than use Save As.

    I use the M$ windows 7 paint program with great success.
    The tasks ahead of us, is never so great, as the power behind us.

    Two ways:

    Open the first image file in Preview then save it as a PDF. Open the side bar in Preview and you will see a thumbnail of that first image. Then drag and drop all other image files on top of that thumbnail, the icon will change to a multi-page document icon. Save the PDF file.
    Download and install Imagemagick, for free. Open the Terminal and change to the folder containing your image files. Suppose the images are named in sequence, e.g. scan01.jpg, scan02.jpg, and so on. Then enter the following command: convert scan*.jpg output.pdf. That's it. This method is very fast and convenient, and it often produces smaller PDF files than Preview.
