I am on PS, just basic, no illustrator or reader etc. I have an image its 14x11 and I want to print it out and I can only print up to regular print size 8.5 x 11. I do not know how to print the image on mulitiple pages so I can tape together to do a transfer. Any help would be appreciated. My best guess was grids and copy the inner grid but it seems like a lot of steps.

 

thanks for the help

First check your printer software, some printers provide the ability to print tiles for a larger image within their drivers.

 

If there is no such ability then you can use the crop tool, making sure 'delete cropped pixels' is not checked in the options bar.  Crop it into sections and print each (you may want to leave a slight overlap for any printing misalignment - overlap is better than a gap)

when I try to crop, each slice seems to change original size, I am trying now to divide a 12x16 and one of the slices tried to print and its size was over 20 inches. I need the size to stay the same , is there a way to stop it from expanding the image?

thanks

Are you cropping by ratio, or WxHxResolution? You need the latter.

@Rhyannon Photoshop has the capability to tile just not automated.

In your print dialog box, keep your image at 100% size then use the preview window to move the image around to manually tile via the print dialog box. You don't have to crop each section. Just adjust the position in the preview and print.

In that case I would consider using a grid layout first then the crop tool - making sure there is nothing set in the options for the tool (click the clear button above while the crop tool is selected). You can build a grid using View>Guides>Guide Layout. Add a .125" margin on each row and column - this will give you your overlap.

Then just click and drag your crop, print, then undo and keep going.
