    I have question about next problem. I have several very big pictures, but
    they look not so good on A3 paper. I want them to put to 2x a3 papers [then
    stick 2 papers together]. Could anyone explain me in some steps how to
    increase picture so i can just print 2x a3 paper and stick it together and
    then its big picture.

    Thanks in advance, Teo

    I greatly apologize, i now saw i typed wrong. I have pictures that are
    bigger then 2xa3 paper, and i would like to decrease them to fit 2xa3 paper
    [so i just stick them together with some type of glue].

    Kinda need desperate and fast this :)

    May try something like.

    1. Print the current photo to whatever size which give the best result. Or
    just print to 4x6

    2. Scan the 4x6 print at good resolution for whatever size you want to

    If the result is still not acceptable then go for option 2

    1. Print the scanned to 8x10 or similar

    2. Using a good DSLR camera ( *not* P&S) tp capture the print, then you
    should have a good photo for pretty large print.

    Or you could draw use the old school method of drawing 1" squares on
    the picture, then use an overhead projector to expand it on a wall to
    the scale you want. That works too.

    Depending on your level.

    Unless it's a line-art, else I would say take to photolab which is easier
    and probably cheaper or about same price for ink and glassy photo papers.

  7. The only change I'd make to those sensible instructions are to resize to
    A2 (or whatever you mean by 2 x A3) FIRST (after saving) before

    Then there's no danger of losing collimation by odd pixel adjustments.
