|=> My daughter has to create a simple invitation for her 
|=> senior art show in 
|=> high school.  I thought it might be educational for me and 
|=> for her to 
|=> try to do it in latex.  We've already done it in 
|=> OpenOffice.org, but it 
|=> involved a lot of manual dragging of frames here and there 
|=> and took a 
|=> long time to get a less-than-perfect layout.
|=> The invitations are to be approx 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches, laid out 
|=> side-by-side on letter paper, in "2-up" fashion, so they can be cut 
|=> apart into two separate invitations.  So far that's easy.
|=> On the back of the text, there is to be an image of one of 
|=> her pieces of 
|=> artwork. It is supposed to occupy almost all of the back 
|=> side, save for 
|=> a small margin all around.  We scanned one of her B&W 
|=> photos into an 
|=> image file (currently jpg, but we could convert it to just about 
|=> anything.)  The thing I'm finding difficult is centering 
|=> the image so 
|=> that it aligns with the centered text on the front side, so 
|=> that when we 
|=> cut them in two, both text and image will be in the center (in all 
|=> directions) of their respective now-half-sized sheets of paper.
|=> What is the best latex way to do this?  So far, I have 
|=> experimented with 
|=> the booklet package.
|=> Thanks.
