Thread: Printing 1 Picture with Multiple Paper

    Default Printing 1 Picture with Multiple Paper

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know how any software that can print 1 photo (single file) in 2 X 2 (= 4 paper) then can join the printed photo to become a single photo? It is like puzzle. It's because normal printer (mine only up to A4 size ) cannot print on any larger than A4 size paper.

    Just wish to have larger printed images.

    Please advice.

    Thank you.

    Display the ruler tool and use the ruler to guide u.

    Otherwise, jus go for large format print. It will look much better than scotch taping 4 pieces of A4s.

    my canon printer has a poster size setting where i can specify A4 as the paper size and than select 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 settings. using 2x2 in setting, i can see the top left quadrant of my photo will be printed in print preview so i assume 4 pcs of A4 will be printed for you to trim and join manually.

    do note that i didn't proceed with the actual printing. i use xnview to preview the photo and launch the printer.

    hope this will help you.

    make your document/image the size of 4 pages that you want

    then in the print dialog box, select tile (depends on the application that you are using)
    normally DTP software will have this option.

    have fun!

    Creating multi-sheet posters from single image: Power print

    Poster images can be printed directly or saved into multiple image files.

    Try The Rasterbator

    No it's not obscene.
