Apparently this is not supported in IrfanView – there are a few standalone tools that allow for it:

Yeah, I find it a little odd that such basic functionality isn't supported on irfanview. – meiryo Apr 12 '11 at 15:07
    
Works like a charm in Paint. Thanks! – 8DH Apr 7 at 11:54

Irfan View not out of the box, but possible:

Go to: Options->Export Image Tiles->Set Rows and Columns. Next you can print individual images or in Thumbnails mode.

Yes, this works well. I just confirmed I was able to split a long infographic into 3 by exporting as "1 x 3". – CodeSlayer2010 Mar 31 at 0:41

I use Posterazor all the time. For me, it works for printing large images on different sheets of paper and has features I find useful.

(Disclaimer: I am not associated with the Posterazor product in any way.)

Check your printer driver options. Some printer/copier manufacturers include this functionality out of the box, calling it Poster mode, or some variation thereof.
