Does anyone know of the application that can be used to print a picture over multiple pages?  This was done by that chick in the Telecom ad a while back - of that big Pohutakawa tree - Any ideas?

Photoshop and alike can allow you to print as Poster format.

And even some printer has built-in preference (during printing setup page at the print) allowing you to choose the paper output.

If you have borderless printer, you can do edge-to-edge printing, otherwise you will have a slim border around the page which you will have to manually trim off.

I have the answer you are looking for!

There is a website you can go to where you upload your image, choose the amount of pages you'd like to spread it over, fiddle with colour settings etc etc and within seconds the site will spit back at you a PDF file ready to print out.

The site is cheekily named Rasterbator and can be found here:

Service is completey free and works a treat. Enjoy!
