Can you suggest a simple, low memory footprint, Mac application that allows one to place images on a canvas, like on PowerPoint, but nothing else, and export the quick montage?

I dislike opening bulky OpenOffice Impress (in my case) just for the purpose of a quick draft of a montage. Any streamlined solution would suit me even better. Thank you for any ideas.

I’m a little confused…are you trying to make a presentation out of a collection of images? If so, you could…

1) Put all the images into a single folder then run a full-screen slideshow using whatever photo viewer you use (I’m a PC guy, so I’m not quite sure how this works in Mac OS)

2) If you have Adobe Bridge, you can highlight the desired images and export them as a full-screen PDF (in CS5, go to the “OUTPUT” button on the top right of the application bar). In the options options, set 1 row by 1 column, black background, and automatically go into full screen mode (and whatever other options you choose).

The idea is just to put some images side by side and on top of one another and export. No big deal… I’ll just use Impress… thanks.
