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
