Today’s Sunday Secrets comes from Karen of Cobble Hill, BC

She asks about printing.

Her question is

“How do you print a photo so it is larger than one sheet of paper of 8.5×11?”

That is a good question.

I am sure there are many ways to do this such as just going to your local copy center and asking them to print it larger.

However, I will tell you how I do it.

First of all, I will enlarge my photo in Photoshop to the size that I want it.

Photoshop Elements is a smaller version of Photoshop and is much less expensive.

It works just as well for basic photo editing.

Once my photo is the size that I want,

(say, 14×21″ to fit a half sheet of watercolor paper),

I then divide it into sections to fit within the 8.5×11″ paper it will be printed on.

(so for a 14×21″ photo, it is divided into 4 sections of 7×10.5″ each)

This is done with the guidelines from the rulers.

I will then copy and paste each section into a separate image and print.

Once printed, I match up the paper, tape, and transfer.
