I have several photos, which I wish to print on a single piece of paper. I have already tried:
convertto combine all images per side. However, now I need to print them two-sided.
convertto combine them into a single PDF for some reason results in each page being extra long, with the top half being blank, and the bottom half containing the image I need. See example of one such page below.
If these were EPS files rather than images, I could combine them into a single file before printing them two-sided. However, this is not an option for image files.
Even combining them into a single TIF file would not allow
lprto print them two-sided.
Naively sending them to
lprtwo files at a time, such as via
lpr -o sides=two-sided-long-edge file1.tif file2.tif
results in them being printed on two separate pages, since the system creates a separate
lprinstance for each of the files.
Note: Conversion packages with a
2 in the middle, such as
tiff2ps, are not available on my system.
