I tried to send you a PM, but you have the ability to receive PM's disabled.
As an alternative to Scribus, unless you are already familiar with Scribus, you might want to give AlbumEasy, which is also free, a try.
I know of many AlbumEasy users that have tried both AlbumEasy and Scribus (with and without the PMGS script), that find the former a far less cumbersome way of creating albums.
On the other hand, to be honest, a fair number of people do not like AlbumEasy at all
AlbumEasy is indeed a great tool. The only reason I am not using it is because it doesn't handle free-form descriptions under the stamps well. So, I need Scribus for that. And I didn't want to use 2 different tools.
If someone has a Mystic template for AlbumEasy, I would love to check it out.
I tried to do something with LaTeX a while back. I got halfway there and then I gave up.
