How to use Image Grid?

After downloading and starting the tool, drag and drop image files (.jpg and .png) on the application window or use the "Add image" button to add one or more images.

The application places the images on a single canvas and tries to equalize the number of columns and rows while also filling all rows. If you are not happy with the number of columns, repeatedly click the "Rearrange" button.

The "Erase all" button removes all images from the canvas.

When all images are added and you are happy with the layout, click the "Save" button to save the canvas as a single image (.jpg or .png).

This is fantastic - thank you! I've been having the hardest time finding software that will let me arrange/rearrange images in a grid. I'm making a quilt, and with 36 12" blocks it's not practical to lay them out on the floor and rearrange them until I'm happy with the layout, so I've been trying to do it on the computer with photos of the blocks. I kept finding collage software that wouldn't do what I wanted it to do. This is exactly what I needed.

Very good, thanks ;-)

Great when it works! Tends to crash on "Save" with C++ library message :-

"Runtime Error
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way"

I can't see any pattern as to when it crashes, some saves are OK; some crash.

I'm running XP 32 Prof fully updated.

Perhaps you are using too many images and run out of memory?

I don't think so. I have 2.7GB free when I start to add pics. These are jpg format and typically 3.25 to 3.75MB each. Up to about 6 pics seems to generally save OK but 7 or more generally crashes during the save function.(After the program and 6 pics in memory I still have 2.388GB free).
Possibly, and more likely, a memory limitation of the C++ model that you are using?
Whatever the reason your program should handle the problem / exception better than this. Crashing is not an acceptable way to handle exceptions of any type.

It is a 32-bit built, so there is ~2GB address space limit. The program needs to have the pictures unpacked and if they are like 12 megapixel each, that is ~40MB in memory per picture. And then it needs another continuous chunk of memory for the whole picture. 500MB total still looks OK, so who knows... I have uploaded a 64-bit built for you to try. http://download.rw-designer.com/1.1/ImageGrid64.exe

As I said originally I'm using XP32 so I doubt that I can run 64 bit programs.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

user icon Vlasta site administrator on April 11th

You are right, 64-bit Windows is needed for the 64-bit version. In that case there is little I can do except trying to re-write the tool to be more efficient, which would not be easy. Displaying an error message instead of crashing would also be possible, but you still would not be able to join the images.

But it would be more professional and at least then you could give the option to reduce the number of pictures in the grid rather than losing everything.Or better still give a warning during the "edit" stage to say the number of picuters is being exceeded.

Love the rearrange button where you can cycle through layouts.

Please add some "negative" margins, or ability for custom presets,

and default filenames (templates) for easy saving.

Or dont't, it's practically perfect ;-)
