There are two scripts here to help you manage the images on your wiki pages. One, is a montage script, basically for an orderly collage. The other is a thumbnailer. They both '''require imagemagick, the ui requires zenity''' ({{{sudo apt-get install imagemagick zenity}}} or use synaptic). The sizes for both scripts are the ones recommended for the wiki.

How to use the scripts

Download the attached script, anywhere you like. If you want to you can place it into your $PATH. Otherwise, just keep it in a handy location. Once you've saved it: right click on the file, and select properties. Navigate to the file permissions tab, and allow executing the file as a program.

Example thumbnail of montage.

Full Size Montage

Montage Maker

Download Montage Maker

To use this script, point it at a directory with the images you wish to collate into one image. After this, choose a filename and location to save your montage.

  • If you have problems with your svg thumbnailing in the montage, prerender a raster (pixel-based) version to place in the directory instead.
  • The script will try to thumbnail everything in the directory, so prepare it properly first.

  • The CLI mode requires first a directory and then the output filename.
  • If you've saved it to the default location with Firefox, you could also run chmod +x ~/Desktop/montagemaker to make it executable

Thumbnailer

Download Thumbnailer

This script will thumbnail all the files you select, appending _thumb to them. There is a configuration section where you can change height, width, appended name, etc, as well as instructions for commenting and uncommenting some features.

  • Be aware that the script by default will render a raster version of the svg with the same name.
  • This will overwrite any prerendered version of the same name.

  • It supports raster and svg images, svg support requires Inkscape

  • To select multiple files, hold the control button while you select them.
  • By default it automatically appends _thumb to the filename.
  • If you've saved it to the default location with Firefox, you could also run chmod +x ~/Desktop/thumbnail to make it executable
