There used to be a program called posterize or some such. I cannot find it anymore. I'm using a Mac and want to print out Dave Graffam's Spaceport mat as tiles.
I know in Acrobat Reader one of the print options is "Poster", which chops up big images into linked smaller images. I haven't used that function in some time (3 years?) but I believe you need to specify a paper size (like 6") to make the tiles.
I've used both PosteRazor and Adobe Reader. As I seem to recall, PosteRazor took a bit of mucking about to get a good result. Now, when at a Windows PC, I just use GIMP, or Word or LibreOffice to export the image to PDF format and in Adobe Reader, select ''Poster'' as the print option. I still need to use PosteRazor.
lightning: That is good advice but I still wish I could create faster to get all ideas out of my head in time :-)

Papercraft Warrior: The trick is, only projects you should start, are those that you can finish in reasonable time... all others get stuck in their own personal hell.

Coyotepunc: Hopefully tonight I will get some pictures up of Striders with tentacles and my kitbashed 1940s Manchurian building. Hopefully. I might just go to bed.

Vermin King: I think that's why I'm doing so many 'stupid' little projects these days. The projects I want to finish seem to be stuck in their own pocket universe

mproteau: I'm tempted to rename "Paper Realms" to "Glacial Studios" to reflect my pace.

okumarts: Really overwhelmed at work. Marking essays and projects at the end of a semester. I wish I could create stuff faster.

mproteau: 2 of 3 pages of the Local Heroes minis are done! I'm working on some 6" cave walls right now, kinda flip-flopping between the two tasks. Should have the set's cutfiles done tonight, though.

mproteau: Finally! A little success on my cave walls. I like what happened on my desk this morning, and it led me to a few more ideas. Time to work on the grids for the tiles..

mproteau: Good lord I hope I get better at what I'm doing, 'cause it isn't all that good right now! Time to pick up another pack of cardstock to feed to the cutter... lots of failed test builds...
