How To Print Tiled Images With Microsoft Paint

toggle-button

PaintscaleThe other day I needed to print a large image that I'd download from the internet. Rather than cramming the entire picture onto a single sheet of paper, I wanted to do what's known as a tiled print. This means that the computer prints sections of the image onto multiple sheets, that I can then tape together to make up a large poster.

There are various programs available that can do tiled printing. But I was somewhat surprised to discover that humble Microsoft Paint, which has been part of Windows since the very early days, can do it.

Just load your oversized picture file into Paint, then choose the Print option and then select Page Setup. You'll then be able to choose how many sheets to use, in each dimension. Then just hit the Print button to create your tiled print.
