PeasyPrint 1.8

Forum member rcrsn51 has created this neat little GUI app for printing PNG/JPG files:

He included the 'gphotofs' utility in his PET, however I took that out and made it as a dependency. I have uploaded the PET to the 'common' repo (2KB):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-common/peasyprint-1.8.pet

...well, that is 2.3KB actually!

I had a need yesterday to print some PNG images in Wary, and I realised it is not so straightforward. Neither Viewnior nor mtPaint can print. The solution was to import the image(s) into some other app, such as Abiword. Rcrsn51 also has peasyPDF which would do it.

Anyway, PeasyPrint makes printing images much more straightforward, and I will include this app in the next Wary/Racy.

mtpaint
I use 'lpr %f' to print from mtpaint. Setup is via file/actions/configure menus, then edit print image command. To print, I run file/actions menus, then print image command.
