Incidentally this was recently requested amongst the comments on
gnomedesktop.org (or was it bugzilla) and I suggested using one of the
many thumbnail browserst that already have this functionality (gThumb has
it I think) but that it would be great if GIMP also had this

take a bunch of thumbnails and create a new image that consits of those
thumbnails layed out in rows and columns much like a photographic contact
sheet that is sometimes provided if you get traditional photographs

The latest version of Adobe Photoshop includes a Thumbnail browser
(methings they felt Paint Shop Pro biting at their heels) so expect to
hear lots of complaints about the GIMP not having a Thumbnail browser
anymore.  Good luck with the GUASH revival, and I encourage anyone who has
ideas on how to make GQView, gThumb, F-spot or any other thumbnail browser
work better with the GIMP.

PS As soon as I get my hands on an evaluation copy of Photoshop I'll be
filing a truckload of enhancements requests including one with many
screenshots of PhotoMerge (and if you dont know what that is yet then I
encourage you to look at the best of the rest and steal ideas for the
Gimp-developer mailing list
