I've been using GIMP to turn photos of my batreps into a comic book, but it's pretty labor intensive. Can someone recommend a program that does it easily?

Most modern word processors are the equivalent of 80's-90's desktop publishers.
With whatever comes with your computer, you should be able to drag and drop pictures on a page, crop, then resize and position fairly easily.
The trick is to zoom out to two page view, add a few blank pages, then manipulate your pictures. Go back later to add captions, etc.

Powerpoint would do it too, I find it easier to import/copy-n-paste photos to than Word, which seems to want to do weird things to them sometimes.

Thanks, guys. I hadn't thought of using a word processor or Powerpoint. I'll give it a try.

There is comic book generator/creator software out there. Makes it real easy. I don't remember the names or which is most popular though.

I saw a couple for Android, which I don't have.
The nice thing about Photoshop/GIMP is that you can add special effects. You can also save your work as a jpg or png image. But like I said, pretty labor-intensive. Still better than Paint for this sort of stuff.
