I back up my personal data (photos as well as other files) onto CD and DVD Rom. I have recently taken on the task of creating contact sheets for all my CDs and DVDs. I was using Photoshop 7's built in contact sheet maker, but ran into two issues:

1) It tries to make thumbnails of files that are not JPGs and I cannot find anywhere to tell it to just do JPGs. If it does a thumbnail of some files that are not JPGs, it has crashed Photoshop (and my whole PC) so bad that I had to hard reboot.

2) I print out a contact sheet and have to write the CD Rom or DVD Rom disk # on the contact sheet manually. If there was an option to add a title, I would make the title be the disk # so that I could put all my contact sheets in a binder and when I want to find a certain image, I can just grab that disk and download it.

This all sounds simple enough, but I have searched for other software that does this and have come up with nothing. I tried Picasa which is good, but I cannot get it to index my CD/DVD Rom collection. It was designed for hard drive use. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Joe

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
look for a program called XnView. it makes contact sheets with a number of different image formats. you can add any information you want under each pic, and if i remember right, you can add a title too.

you can also use any color background, adjust the borders / spaces between each image, adjust text color, number of shots per row / column etc...

its a free program, and ive used it before and never had a problem with it.

it also has a number of other features you might find usefull such as batch processing.
