The GLOSSY POTM Completed on September 30, 2005
Congratulations to the winner: Hagen von Eitzen
From Bonn, Germany

GLOSSY: TASK DESCRIPTION


I love taking digital pictures, but that nice glossy photo paper is expensive! So when my lovely wife asks for prints of a bunch of pictures, I always try and fit them onto a single piece of paper.

THE SHORT PROBLEM STATEMENT

Of course, I can make each picture bigger or smaller but I still want it to look "natural" so I can't "stretch" them too much, and my wife insists that they are some minimum size. Your POTM task, should you choose to accept it, will be to arrange some pictures to make full use of a sheet of printer paper.

I'll give you the width and height of several pictures. Your program will then tell me how (or if) to modify the size of each and where to place it on the page. The winner will be the one that leaves the least white space on the page - subject of course to all the rules and regulations you'll find in the GLOSSY details

If it sounds interesting, sign up using the Members Section link on the left and start watching the forums for more details, current standings, how to submit your entry, and much discussion among the jolly band of POTM participants!
