This Instructables shows you how to make huge posters, with just an image in JPEG format, a computer, printer, and tape.
Let's get to work!
I hope you like my Instructable, don't forget to rate, or comment!
Step 1: Items.
- Scissors (optional)
Step 2: Get your image.
For an example, I am using the Instructables Robot for my poster.
Yes, it is in JPEG format.
Step 3: Go to the website.
If you're too tired/ lazy to click that link, click this link. It will automatically take you to Step 1.
Once you get there, click the "browse" button, and upload your image.
Then, click continue.
Click the little "i" in the top left hand corner of the image to see it full size.
Step 4: Changing stuff around.
Set the thing to Letter (US) if you have letter sized paper (that is the normal one everybody uses.
If you use A4 paper, obviously, click the A4 thing.
Set it to Portrait or Landscape, whichever type you like.
Now, there should be something like this:
< (a number should be here) > pages wide
Example: < 3 > pages wide
Edit your image until you get it the way you want, and then click "Continue".
I decided to make my robot a portrait, 2 pages wide, as I did to my teacher's classroom...
Yes, I set it to A4.
Click continue, then move on.
Step 5: PDF downloading time.
Obviously I'm kidding.
It should say Congratulations, blah blah zakawakacha, and stuff like that.
They should give you a link to a PDF you download that contains your image.
I recommend you check out your image at 100% to see what it will look when printed out, so it will look nice and not all pixelized.
