    How can I print an image onto 4 sheets so the assembled sheets make a
    14x20 image using a letterl-size printer?
    Photoshop elements 3, Epson RX-500 AIO printer, Mac G5.
    Thx,

    Quarter the image and print each section.

    Same thing one does for panoramas, except the divisiona are [usually] along
    the width of the pan.

    some printer drivers have this option inthe page layout TAB
    that will automate the process

    if not
    open your image in ps
    change image size to the desired final size

    make guides
    then use the marquee tool to select one quadrant and print that one only
    then select the second and print etc

    OR
    select crop tool
    click left top corner
    crop and print
    then history undo crop
    select bottom left quadrant 8.5 x 11
    this may give more overlap for proper alignment and trimming

    Use Qimage, a specialist printing program which will make large prints
    on multiple sheets of paper. I did a mural on 16 sheets of A4, perfect
    match between sheets.

    Qimage does much more than that. You need to read the writeup.

    Most printer drivers will do this for you without buying additional
    software. Look carefully at the print selection windows and make the correct
    selections to get what you want.

    This works on my Canon printer on CS3 (it should work with Photoshop
    elements becuase it is really a printer function)
    go to the print menu
    go to print set up
    find the psoter menu
    set it up for the size picture you need [print

    Qimage doesn't run on a Mac, so that won't work for me. I don't think my
    printer driver will do that... will investigate further.
