The right tool?

I'd like to create a simple epub picture book - just a series of jpegs, one per page.

Is Sigil the best tool to do this, or is there something with a smaller learning curve that I should look at?

Hmmm!
Start Sigil
Type Title, Author ... Title page done


In Book Browser
Right click on "Text", Select new. Double-click on the New to open the page.
Click the add picture button, select file

Repeat until done
SaveAs...

Add a little more work to create the TOC:H tags (<h3 title="no visible heading alternate title here"</h3>) (view with F7), Metadata(F8).

Is that too complicated?

Okay, I created a picture book epub. But since the pictures are bigger than 600x600, only a corner of each picture gets displayed. Is there a tag to fit the picture to the page, or do I have to actually resize each picture before I import it?

You should be able to specify the size, directly in the HTML, like this:
Code:
<img src="image.jpg" width="200" height="150">
