Working on new images for rotator

We're working on a new script to produce the header images for the blog rotator we are using. I'm writing a fairly generic utility that scans a folder for images and creates the wide transparent image with 2 or 3 images from the folder.

Currently, the spacing is set to the edges and center, but other options are clearly desirable. I was thinking of adding parameters to even spacing, allow for more, narrower, images when space allows and some blurring between sharp edges.

Would like to add import from flickr or general url's features.

It's not hard to spend the whole day playing with this. I have to force myself to keep up on client work.

A nice story begins to emerge when you start loading up all the images.

Doe this look like fun or useful to you? What features would help or would you like to see?
