Yes, kudos to Andy for the original find. They work quite well, easy to obtain and a great price. Cropper works for me, by the way. One thing that would be nice is if the tools all know your directory. I think the cropper defaults to the directory where the program lives. I have a bunch of suggestion for him but it's a wonderful start!

The tiler is particularly nice. Especially with the overlap and cut marks. The summary page option is great, too. I'd like to see the ability to move the image around within the "cropping frame" to minimize the number of pages something big needs but that's a minor nit.

by the way, to print to a single page using cutepdf, I had to go into advanced and select a huge page size. It seems like to should be an option to autosize the page. Am I missing something obvious here?

edit: I think the cropper problem occurs if you don't check the "fixed folder" box.
