Make a Poster by Printing a Large Image on Multiple Pages | Draw it Too Vlog

Ever wanted to turn one of your photos into a large poster that you can hang on your wall?

In this video I show you how, and all you need is your high-resolution image, Microsoft Excel, paper, scissors, glue, and of course a printer.

Here is the basic method:

1) Open MS Excel and insert your high-resolution image.
2) Change the view mode to “Page View” then stretch your image to the desired size. You’ll be able to see how much paper you will use up if you zoom out.
3) Print it!
4) Cut the excess flaps (the white borders), but not all of them — you’ll want to use some of those flaps for gluing.
5) Glue each page one sheet at a time.

And ta-da! That’s all there is to it!

Of course I go into a lot more detail in the video. Though I do want to mention that you MUST use a large, high-resolution image to keep the poster nice and sharp. Enlarging a small, low-resolution photo will result in a blurry, pixellated poster.

I’d love to see what posters you create with this method. Feel free to post it in the Google+ Community!

Happy drawing,
Ramny
