Create a tiled image of many images.

Overview

PhotoTiles creates a tiled photo or PDF of a folder of images, Web page graphics, movie frames or PDF file pages. The array of images can be of various dimensions and sizes. When tiling images in a folder the program can also generate an HTML image map file.

After the program is configured by specifying a few options, simply drag a folder of images or movie file onto the application, or its main window. Or select "PhotoTile Browser URL" to tile the images on the current Web page. After processing is complete you will be prompted to specify the output image format and location.

PhotoTiles initially runs for about ten days without a permanent password.

I REALLY want this to work. Or perhaps i should say, i really want a simple, flexible contact sheet maker. Unfortunately, PhotoTiles has a lot of quirks and some crucial functionality is missing. Drag and Drop _only_ is not a great UI for this type of app where settings are likely to need changing often. Devs seem to have forgotten what a computer is best at: computing. If one wants a 5 x 5 grid of images from a video clip or large folder, it's silly to have to get a frame count and divide by 25 to determine how many frames to skip. An 'In' and 'Out' time based option seems a requirement here also where video frame tiling is an option. Additionally, with video, where every frame will be the same aspect ratio, it's very wasteful of real estate for tiles to remain square. Back on the computing topic, I fail to see why the X and Y offsets, requiring trial and error to get the desired appearance. Should the software not calculate how to align text with the tiles or center the text beneath? And there also seems an inherent need to be able to add some page header text. In the video realm, it choked on WMV files even though i have more than one library installed to read them. For some peculiar reason, forward delete 'Del' key doesn't function properly in input boxes. The "Top to Bottom" tile checkbox oddly defaults to unchecked though it's a rare case that one would want the tiles to be inserted bottom to top. When i DID make a 5 x 5 grid i expected it to come out wrong because the progress counter deceptively stopped at 24. When giving the images and tiles borders, there needs to be some separation between the two rather than image borders overwriting tile borders. The app uses a menu & box instead of a standard OS X font picker; annoying when you have hundreds or thousands. PhotoTiles badly needs the capability to automatically include additional information with each tile. It also attempted to run Firefox, when i was already using a community build (Namoroka). Not a huge thing. But it took an excessive amount of time between my clicking "Okay" in the dialog reporting it couldn't do so, and when i was presented with a second dialog about the contents of the current web page, which it somehow located anyway. Then, when i clicked cancel, PhotoTiles took so long to actually do so (20 seconds or more) that i was beginning to think it had hung. All that aside, it did complete some tasks fairly well. I would like to see this developed to be more sophisticated.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

Hi, I am sorry to have not replied sooner, but this was out of development since October 2010, and I just caught sight if it now. I appreciate your comments and I will try to adopt some of your ideas in future updates. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about the software.
