Printing Photoshop Storyboards

I'm making storyboards from scanned sketches in photoshop.

I have lettersized documents that I'm printing on a Laserjet printer.

The documents are about 24MBs in size so when I print them it takes forever to print.

How can I print them faster? I'm working on a Apple G5 Powermac and printing to a Laserjet 1200 printer with the basic memory.

What resolution are they in... you only really need 300ppi.

try this... Open the image in PS , then do to:

Help > Resize image > Print > Set the desired size > Set the resolution to whichever level you need (Try 150), Choose image quality.

Then print the file which PS renders.

* I am assuming the images are very big and you are scaling them down. You cannot scale up and keep the image quality!

Hope this helps.
