ImageMagick montage on 4600 photos running for 36 hours! Alternatives?

Submitted by Roland on Tue, 2011-04-19 07:50

I am trying to create a barcode like the barcode I did for Gastown out of 4600 1 pixel by 720 pixel jpeg photos using the ImageMagick montage command as follows:

montage -geometry +0+0 -tile x1 *.jpg foobarcode.png

It's been running for 36 hours and still hasn't finished, anybody got a faster alternative? Clearly I am "unencumbered by knowledge" :-) when it comes to image processing. My bet is there's another newer open source toolkit that will do this faster.
