What I'm Looking for:
I would like to find a tool that I could use on a website I'm bidding on that would allow me to make a pdf out of pictures automatically for people logged into the site.

Details -or- Imagination gone wild:
     * A logged in user would click a button "Upload Pictures"
     * They would upload 4 - 10 -15 pictures
     * A pdf would be made out of the pictures - say 4 per page
     * They would have the opportunity to make a comment on each picture
     * The pdf would be saved on the site under a predefined name.
     * At anytime a logged in user who is at the site could look at / Print  the pdf for the home.

Some Facts:
     * This is a site for a charity that repairs older people's homes.  So each home would have the possibility of a pdf with pictures.
     * Plan on using VB.Net to build the site with SQL Server as the backend.


Thanks in advance for any help - and the laughter that goes with - "You want to do what?"

pdf export can be done using iTextSharp

for the .net interface part ... there is no shurtcut, but writing code. I guess that ajax can make things easier
