Hi all,

I'm trying to put a bunch of photographs together as a collage. As I do
so, I want to be able to resize and reposition each one repeatedly
until I'm happy with the overall layout. So far what I'm doing is
pasting each image into a new layer, however, this isn't very
satisfactory because the layers are all the full size of the image, so
when I resize them, I can't really see what the effect will be on the
image itself. Similarly, repositioning the layer is a rather hit and
miss way of repositioning the image that it contains.
What should I be doing?

I often use Inkscape for that kind of work; it's vector based so it handles each imported bitmap as an object that can be resized and repositioned at will.

If I have been able to see further, it was only because I stood
