Hi

I've just bought a new printer after not owning for several years.. I seem to remember a program that allowed you to take a photo and blow it up onto several A4 sheets to make a poster size picture (fitting together like a perfect jigsaw).. Is this possible? Do I need a certain type of program or can you do this on any program such as paint.net or other image editor software?

Thanks for any help
Jon

I remember that being part of the vendor software that came with my printer. It was really easy to do using that specialized software. I think the command was "Poster", "Posterize", "Banner" or something like that.

However, you should be able to cut an image into quarters, re-size each quarter (maintaining aspect ratio) using just about any decent graphics editor, and then physically join the pages together. Even MS Paint would work but will require a lot of separate manual steps.

Be sure to scan the original with enough resolution so that when you blow it up to the larger size it will minimize pixelation.


edit-add possible command names

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

My Canon printer driver has an option to do this - you select "Poster Printing" under page layout and then specify how many sheets of paper to use.

Hi,
I have a large .gif, intended to be part of a large display I am compiling. It is about 1.5m long but only the height of an A4 sheet in landscape (if that makes sense). I would like to print it out on A4 pages and then join them together. I thought photoshop woul have a function for this but it seems it is unable to do it. Cope if these objectives, the program Poster Printer -http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/proposter?

Perfect!
