I cannot say that I have printed a lot of images in the past ten or so years of computing, but I know several businesses and home users who do print out images regularly.
The default options on Windows for printing images fall short on many levels, so that most users prefer to use third party software when it comes to that.
While you can use a program like Picasa for that, at least some may prefer a lightweight alternative to that.
Primg -- which stands for Print Images -- is a lightweight program that uses less than 2 Megabytes of storage space on the hard drive after installation.
The program itself is pretty easy to use. It displays a list of folders on the left of its main interface. All you have to do is browse to the folder containing pictures that you want to print.
All images of the selected folder are displayed as thumbnails by default in the program. The program supports bmp, png, jpeg, tiff and gif files as well as zip and rar files containing images.
Tip: You can increase the size of thumbnails either by increasing the size of the Primg window, or by reducing the number of thumbnail columns.
The thumbnail tab is not only used to display all images found in the selected folder, but can also be used directly to print out all the thumbnails listed here. Thumbnails are aligned on pages automatically, and you may navigate through all pages using the prev and next button on the right of the display. Here you also find an indicator listing the total number of pages.
A click on any thumbnail image loads it in the single and multiple fixed form tab as well. The single tab displays only the selected image, so that you can print it out on its own. You get options to resize and move the image on the page so that it fits before you go ahead and print it.
The multiple fixed form tab on the other hand displays part of an image multiple times on the same page. Here you can change the area that you want displayed on the printout, and change its width and height in the preview before you send it to the printer.
Primg is an easy to use program that provides you with options to quickly print thumbnails of all images found in a particular folder on a computer's hard drive or a single image.
There is no option to remove individual thumbnails from the printout, other than moving the images out of the folder first so that they are not picked up any longer.
The program may not be the most sophisticated one, but it may certainly make life a bit easier for users who print out images occasionally.
