For some months (on and off) I have been creating a photobook(42 pages)using qimage.

My problem is numbering the pages, I think this may be because some pages have single prints and some have multiple (2-7) prints.

I have tried inserting a template and using text annotation, but this causes some prints on different pages to resize or move.

I was trying to place the odd numbers on the bottom right and even numbers on the bottom left, but would be happy for them to be centred.

I have searched the internet and this forum without any luck, and I know there are book layout programs but I am hoping the print quality will be better from Qimage.

Can you elaborate on exactly what you've done? You should be able to create a layout that does what you want. Just create two pages and add your print sizes/locations on both pages. When done, go to page 1 using the full page editor and right click to "Add floating text". Then starting from a clear (no text) edit box, click "page number" and place your text where you want it on the page (bottom right for odd number). Then go to page 2 and do the same thing but place the page number on the bottom left (for even). Then back on the main window, save the file as a layout by clicking "L" at the bottom before you save. You can then use your layout using "Custom" from the size dropdown and "Layout".

Thanks for the quick reply.

Because I did not want every page the same I did not create the template, I just created the book.

I have had aquick go with your instructions and see how it works. So Thanks for that as well.

I think part of my problem was not creating a template and also trying to add the page numbers afterinserting and re-sizing all the images.the photographs
