How do I do a 2 pages A4 to A3 borderless tile printing seamlessly at the connection line?

It's a Canon TR 150 printer.

I have split the photo in half in Photoshop and printed out both borderless, but of course the connection line is not seemless due to the slight borderless cropping.

What is the best workaround for this?

It's not a problem if I loose a slight amount of the image on the sides, because it will be zoomed anyway, but it must be zoomed in the same amount for both pages so that the connection line will be flush.

This is for transfer for an A3 painting, so the frame boundaries are slighly smaller than A3 so that the painting can be taped on the back. 

Photoshop doesn't have a tile printig + borderless option, it's either / or, and the Canon Easy Print software for the TR 150 doesn't allow me to exclude cropping at the bottom / top of the image for the borderless printing, nor does it have tile printing.

I have used the Canon Easy Print software for printing that's at the software downloads for the TR150.

Basically the task is to print out both borderless at the same zoom ratio, with no cropping at the bottom and top, respectively.

@Chris P. Bacon print with a purposeful overlap in the seam so you can trim out to match.

'...Photoshop doesn't have a tile printig + borderless option, it's either / or,...'

 

Actually, Photoshop has neither of those. Both are functions within the print driver.

 

You could try setting borderless and ensuring expansion is set to none (this is adjustable in an Epson driver, unfortunately I don't have a Canon printer here to check if that is available to you).  However, that would still be subject to variance in the paper alignment between the two prints which is why borderless is often slightly expanded.

 

If you can't get hold of an A3 printer, you may need to make two seams and print three A3 sheets with overlap so you can trim the A4 sheets together.

@davescm while there is no automated tiling you can manually tile the two prints using the print preview screen and the Position settings to manually adjust the print. Change the Height and Width to adjust X and Y.

@kevin stohlmeyer I realise you can position the print in the Photoshop dialogue, but the OP talked about his option being borderless or tiling which the way it appears in the print driver.  In the Epson driver for my P5000 choosing borderless greys out the settings for what Epson call 'Multi-Page' which is effectively a tiling function.

 

The best option is an A3 (or larger) printer.

 

Next best is tiling with an overlap as you stated in your first reply and is easily set up using the dialogue you show.  But to get an A3 print from overlapped A4 sheets will require 3 sheets and therefore two seams.

 

The riskiest is two A4 sheets printed borderless with no bleed outside the paper, then butted together. That is available in the Epson driver but I don't know whether it is in the Canon. It also needs a perfect paper feed or a white edge can show and a fine edge be missed off on the opposite edge.
