Score 89%
Description:

Fotowall is a fun tool for creating graphics by mixing some of your favorite pictures in a nice and smooth high resolution composition.

Check out the new homepage on:
http://www.enricoros.com/opensource/fotowall/

The interface is intuitive:
- just push the 'help' or 'tutorial' buttons to get started

To build from source (make sure that Qt 4.5+ development packages are installed):
- download
- unpack (tar xjpvf Fotowall-0.9.tar.bz2)
- cd fotowall-0.9
- qmake-qt4 or qmake (this depends on your linux distribution. we depend on Qt 4.5+)
- make
- make install (or "cp fotowall /usr/local/bin")
and to execute, just type "fotowall".

PosteRazor is IN!. Thanks to Alessandro Portale and to the good framework (Qt4, by QtSoftware) we're using, it was possible to merge the 2 stunning Fotowall and PosteRazor opensource projects into 1 useful program!
Good done, opensource ;-)

Many thanks to all the people that contribute to FotoWall, expecially to Tanguy Arnaud and Alessandro Portale.

hello

picturewall is a realy cool application. I like it very much and I want help you.

My girlfriend loves boarders and so I would make some nice boarders for your app. Is there a "design" guide for the boarders?

Thanks

There is a small guide to create borders that I put on my blog : http://geenux.wordpress.com/2010/10/27/create-frames-for-fotowall/
I hope this will be enough to get you started.

I've updated the package to include the translations (to make people's life easier) and finalized the package format (to make packagers happier).

This will work on any recent system with Qt 4.4 (bad), 4.5 (good) or 4.6 (best).

Happy Fotowall!

qmake-qt4 gives me a couple of errors of the form

RCC: Error in 'fotowall.qrc': Cannot find file 'translations/fotowall_pt_BR.qm'

...

RCC: Error in '3rdparty/posterazor/posterazor.qrc': Cannot find file 'de.qm'

and make terminates with

RCC: Error in 'fotowall.qrc': Cannot find file 'translations/fotowall_de.qm'

Please accept my apologies. There were many people asking for removing the ".qm" files from the package, but unfortunately not everybody has the Qt translation tools installed.

Try with a "make ts" followed by "make qm" and see if it works. Also try issuing manually a "lrelease -silent -compress -removeidentical fotowall.pri" command and see what happens.

I'll ship the qm files next times.

Sorry, all your suggestions return errors. Does anybody know what the name of the kubuntu package for these Qt translation tools or where I can get if its not in the usual repositories?

Hi , im having the same problem here...
I use debian lenny on a x86 machine, downloaded de source code and cant compile....
In debian lenny we dont have qt 4.5, the most recent version is qt 4.4.3-1

Ive tried to download the official packages from their webpage, since qt4.5 is not in lenny's repositories...
Downloaded and installed qt 4.5 and the dev tools too, and no luck... this qt thing is not recognized when i try to compile your application...
Anyway, i was hopping that this version (0.8) included support for qt 4.4 like you said in http://www.qt-apps.org/content/show.php?content=71316
and still cant make this run...
Why is the ubuntu version so old, and just for 64 bit machines ? I could try the "old" one if there were a .deb for 32 bit... just consider this as a request.Its just that i would really like to try this application, but i see that like me, but not everybody has access to bleeding edge packages or has the guts to install these considering that if qt 4.5 is in debian sid.
Thank you very much and keep on improving it more and more.
Cheers!

Hi ...
... on 0.6 webcam did not switch off after exit of program ...
... no compile of 0.7.1 on openSuSE 11.1 because qt4.6 required :-( ... any chance for change? Better use older qt for more compatibility :-)

Great job ...

Thanks

We support both Qt 4.5 for 'modern' systems and 4.6 if you want to have extra eye-candy!

Can you try to isolate the problem so we can fix it in the next release? (that is going to be out very soon!)

Hi I'm getting this error. The last version built with no problems, I'm guessing some requirement has changed?

I had the same problem the last day when compiling.
I solved it by :
- removing all .qm files
- downloading .ts files from enrico repository (http://github.com/enricoros/fotowall/tree/master).
I can't see the reason, weird lrelease problem.

We ruined my sister weekend too! I guess she will print posters and stick them everywhere :)

Fixed in 0.6.1.. sorry for the problem, caused by a non-robust 'lrelease' setup.
You can enjoy FW again ;-)
P.S: if you update Qt to 4.5.1 you will get many benefits too!!

Just amazing and stupidly simple (stupidly simple in the best positive way of course) so far that I tried it!!!! :)

I also have a suggestion now that I read about the CD Covers...
One thing I really miss, is that when I burn an audio cd with K3B, then I can`t print a cover with the songs I already burned.

It would be nice if a program (like this one) could read a .k3b audio project file (k3b projects are stored in xml format) and extract the information of the songs in the playlist and print a track list. It could be even configurable. For example to print only the song name and length of the song, or print song name and artist etc.

- Picture will move in 3D (along all axis) in the next version (already implemented in my branch).

- Layouts will be saved in XML instead of the binary format. So, compatibility will not be broken at each version !

- Nice idea for the CD cover. I'll look into this (later, as everybody, time is passing too quick).

- There will be even nicer features, but I'll keep you in abeyance !
