Create PDF Contact Sheet from a Collection of Magick.NET Images

Oct 25, 2013 at 11:08 PM
Hello,

I am currently working with Magick.NET, and I am really liking it. What I need to do is create a PDF contact sheet in a 2x4 or 2x6 grid per page, on a collectcion of Magick Images, with the File Name as caption. dlemstra, developer of Magick.NET, recommended I install Ghostscript to use it in tandem with Magick.NET in order to do this.

I have created the test Console App .NET project, included both Magick.NET and Ghostscript.NET, created the MagickImageCollection and loaded it with my images. Now I need to know how to output this image collection to a PDF in the aforementioned grid format.

Can you please provide me some insight as to the next step for this? I have searched online for a specific example of this, but all I am finding is how to go in the opposite direction, which is to create images from a PDF file.

Your help will be appreciated.

Hi troyzirk,

At first it was not clear to me what this is about and then i saw your discussion at Magick.NET project (https://magick.codeplex.com/discussions/463602).

What "dlemstra" meant is that you need to download Ghostscript library from the http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html

Ghostscript.NET is just a wrapper around the Ghostscript library. A same as Magick.NET it requires native Ghostscript library installation.

Cheers,
