IDEA: Convert jpeg to printable pdf poster
« on: April 30, 2009, 02:57 PM »
Is this possible? To convert a picture to a pdf file which can be printed on a4 or a3 (specified by user) and with preview function. Something like Rasterbator, but without the dot function. I've this really big image which I like to print on several a3's. A friend of mine can print it, but I have to mail him something, he is not installing software...

SwiftPDF
 (see attachment in previous post)
This is not what I am looking for, this just simply makes a pdf file with images, I want to make a poster from it.

I think Swift PDF does the opposite (nice find though :Thmbsup:) to what Coeluh's looking for (it combines as opposed to splitting)

Coeluh
my only idea is maybe not so quick, but definitely dirty :)-
  • Open jpeg in image editor
  • use guidelines to mark out A4 (or A3) size sections - select each individual section, copy and paste to new file.
  • Save as/print to - PDF

or if you want to enlarge image
mark out e.g. A5 size sections, create new file/PDF, print at A4 (or A3) size using page-scaling in print dialogue box

Join up your prints
Tom

Welcome to the site, Jeremy!  This is quite the old request so not sure the OP is still looking. How did you come across the topic, and what's your relationship to the convert site?

^ and it is not what Coeluh back then was asking for.

The Big Picture (https://www.afterdaw.../the_big_picture.cfm) is.

The default version is adware, but their .msi version is clean and is working fine on my Win 10 desktop.

The download is bundled with sponsored offers to cover some of the costs of maintaining our download servers. If you prefer a non-installer version, please click here ("there") to download the software without the installer.

Seems like wraith removed the spam :up:

FWIW these days poster printing is easy once the PDF is made -- size of image/PDF doesnt matter -- open in Adobe Reader and print as poster, choosing scale and amount of overlap. You can see from the dotted lines how many pages it will print.
