    Question Contact Sheet with Trim & Random Selection

    Hi all.

    I've got a large image library and would like to make it in to a series of contact sheet desktop wallpapers.

    I have explored but there are two things I can't work out how to do :

    * "Fill" a contact sheet "cell" with the full image (like a centre extract - zoomed in until it fills)
    * Use a random set of photos (as they are named sequentially it make for a boring wallpaper)

    I know that I could to a batch trim for the first, not sure about the latter.

    Maybe some command line magic?

    Cheers!

    You can sort the thumbnails (Shortcut = t) in any order with drag and drop, then select images to create a contact sheet.

    Might be a bit impractical with 10,000+ images...

    Try sorting the thumbnails by size or date.
