I have a massive image about 980px wide and 3000+px high. I want to print this on multiple A4 sheets of paper, how can I do this?
Apparently this is not supported in IrfanView – there are a few standalone tools that allow for it:
Paint, bizarrely enough:
- Open the image you’d like to print in Paint
- Select: Print -> Page Setup (Vista and 7), or File -> Page Setup (in XP)
- Under Scaling, select Fit to and change the setting to something like “2 by 2 page(s)”
- Click OK
- Print the image from Paint, and make sure to select “All Pages”
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.)
An alternative solution using Irfanview: I divided the picture 'by hand' in separate files, one for every sheet. I selected the part of the picture for one separate sheet, cropped it (Irfanview menu Edit --> Crop selection (Ctrl+Y) ) and saved it as a separate file. It was cumbersome, but it gave me more control and a better end result.
