Image enlargment and printing
Posted on 2006-10-27
We enlarge books for the visually impaired. We have a client who needs 8 1/2 x 11 books enlarged to 17 x 22. We have decided to print half of the 8 1/2 x 11 on the front of an 11 x 17 and the other half on the back of the 11 x 17. We have an hp 5si with a duplexer.
The ideal situation would be to have a software which does the splitting of the images automatically and then prints them out on both sides of the 11 x 17. That's not realistic because it wouldn't know where to split between the text. Instead, we have a software which we use to manually divide the 8 1/2 x 11's into two parts.
To print the (now two) images onto the two sides of the 11 x 17 we have been using Windows picture and fax viewer which sends them together to the printer and they get duplexed. The problem is that Windows picture and fax viewer sometimes cuts off parts of one side of the print. It seems that when the two sides are not close enough in size, Windows uses the same proporting for both sides eventhough it's cutting one off.
What can we do for this.
