I'm quite sure it can. That script would create a new temporary
directory, then scan all images into it with the specified options
(resolution, format: jpeg or png, etc.). At the end of it, it simply
creates a TeX file that includes all of the pictures on a page each,
then compiles that file into a PDF using pdftex. If I had an hour
right now, and a flatbed on my desk, I would code the whole thing in
sh for you, but I'm afraid I'll have to do it next year.
