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.

They are in 300 ppi right now. I will try to scale them down and see if they print faster.
