One nice way to present images is to create a mosaic effect. Several images are displayed as tiles next to each other, so the users can see many images at once.

The class can generate the mosaic effect in a PDF document that can be printed but using the same algorithm it could eventually generate the same mosaic effect outputting as an image.

The package comes with a nice screenshot of the output so you can see the effect in practice.
