I am currently using Ubuntu, and am trying to write a book which is very heavy on graphics - a memory book like a high school year book. It is mostly photos, as many as 12 on a page.
I have to make each page with a separate file name as if I make a file with more than say 5 images in it, the program either runs very slowly, erratically or the OS stalls. I save each page completed page 3 ways, once as an odt.file, again as a pdf and then again as a jpeg, so I will have multiple options when it comes time to put it all together.
I bought a better computer with 16gb RAM which seems to help, but I am still seeing some of the slowness and stalling as on my old laptop. It is the worst while using Libre Office Writer, and better with Libre Office Impress. I am hoping to have a book with around 108 pages when I am finished, all of which have to be converted into one large pdf file for the printer.
Anyone have any idea what my problem is and do they have any suggestions on how I can work more efficiently and with fewer stalls? What if I am unable to make one large 108 page document with at least 1000 photos in it? I'd hate to do all this work (thousands of hours) only to not be able to actually get my work printed.
