Program to print LARGE image in sections automatically
Posted on 2010-11-29
I need to find a program smart enough to analyze a LARGE image, and break it down into printable blocks. It is not good enough just to be able to print the left or right half.
Example, image 48" long by 36" wide, to print on 11 x 17" paper. Accounting for print margins, this means the program must AUTOMATICALLY figure out it takes 4 sheets WIDE 3 sheets LONG to print the image -- then print it so it can be seamed together at FULL SIZE.
This need has existed for over a decade. I have not found a program smart enough to do it. Have you?
Note I emphasized "automatic" above. I can do a poor job with Adobe Photoshop and a day's work per image -- but I am simply NOT going to waste days making up for software inadequacies.
The program needs to be able to do the work, one should NOT have to piece an image manually !! Don't suggest anything where it has to be done manually -- only if you know it can do it automatically.
