I have a large photo that is landscape oriented. When I print on one letter size sheet the text is too small to read. And naturally the illustrations are quite small also. There are many illustrations and a lot of text. On landscape mode the pix is 10 inches wide and 6 inches tall. I wish to print the one image on two sheets in portrait mode then physically cut the printed images to form one portrait image on essentially a 17 inch by 11 inch piece of stitched paper. Can COREL DRAW do this?  EXPERTS??

Make a new Letter portrait document, then put your photo in the middle (select the photo, press P). Then go to File->Print Preview

Once there:
1. click on Print Options
2. click on Layout
3. click on Reposition images to and change it to center
4. click on "Print tiled pages"
5. make it 2 horizontal tiles and 1 vertical
6. scale the image to about 165%
7. move it down and right a bit, so it allows for printer's edges.

See the image, and I've attached a PDF with the result. You can print directly to your printer.

Hi,
another idea,
what if you converted it to PDF then printed it out that would span across two pages as a PDF would include several pages?
Look here for tips on saving it to PDF
