ok, at this point it seems I've finished the texturization of the 15mm stuff, and I obviously finished 15mm templates as well - at least, for the moment...
what I need at this point is some tips on how to pdf-ize all that stuff, since it's really the first time I've needed to do it;
now, regarding the "save as .pdf" issue of each single image, I've got no real problem, I work under Photoshop and I only need to select pdf as the output format; what I wanted to know is whether I need to use an A4 wide canvas or whatever; you know, when I print my stuff I usually edit it altogheter with photoshop on a canvas that's just as wide as my printer's print area, but since I have to release this stuff for anyone to use under acrobat reader, I wouldn't want to go into size issues;
so, will it be ok if I just save as .pdf a canvas smaller than A4 format (to be sure the content doesn't exceed some printers' print areas)?
or should I use an A4 sized canvas and try to adjust the images inside so that they don't go out the borders?
also, are there any other settings I should know to get this done?
and finally, how can I put the various single-page pdfs I'm gonna have into one single .pdf file?
I know I'm kind of an info beggar, just bear with me if you can, any help will be greatly appreciated!
I usually size my bits and pieces to fit inside a 7x9 square, this is the craftrobo safe region and also means safe printing for a4 or letter size. It does waste some paper however...
If you stick the registration marks on your files for craftrobo, even if you dont want to do gsd files someone else may do it in the future and it makes things much easier for sharing of the gsd files for everyone
For multipage pdfs I've used several different things: ~ a printer pdf software ie the pdf creater appears s a printer and you simply print to it and it spans pages as per normal.
~ Adobe Indesign 4 ( I did more watching than using ), but it's similar to scribus but generates layered pdf's correctly.
~ lastly Scribus which I really like but it doesn't correctly support the generation of layered PDF's which is a bit of a bummer, but it's excellent for standard no layered pdf creation.
Looking forward to the release

ok, I got how to put different pdfs into a single file (luckily my macbook pro's preview feature does it from itself, just drag & drop and that's great! thanks, Daddy Steve... );
now I'd only like to know which settings should I format my pdfs to, as they end up being really really big (IIRC even 20MB per page), is there a compression setting I can input while not losing too much detail?
lastly, as it seems that if I save my .pdfs as they are, then they appear without border altogether on the sheets, I think I'll follow your lead and just open one of Jim's sets, remove all that's inside and put my stuff there, it's quicker I think
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
