Subject description: I need to enlarge picts in several A4 pages
 

Hello. I can't find a way to enlarge images and print them in A4 sheets. I don't see this option in the cups-pdf driver, nor in the hp printer driver I use, nor in the Gimp printing dialog.

Perhaps I'm missing some dialog or option. Have you done this?

I will assume you have done this before with this printer in some other OS.
What is the printer?
Make and model?
What version of Puppy?

Have a look in Menu--->Setup--->CUPS--->Administration--->Your Installed HP Printer--->Administration--->Set Default Options--->Media Size

Or you can open a fresh browser and go to http://localhost:631/admin/ --->Manage Printers--->Your Installed HP Printer--->Administration--->Set Default Options--->Media Size

Is this app what you are looking for? Or do you just want to blow up a picture to fill a whole page? PeasyPrint can do that.

the ImageSlicer which I just discovered, will be a big help. I know school teachers that need this capability often. This should be the program that would do the job posted originally.

very cool.... thanks

Use Scribus, or this one:

Hard to help someone that will not answer back.

Bigpup, have a little bit of patience.

It was you that told me, years ago, shortly after joining the forum:-

Different people have different situations, and take different attitudes towards forums. They live in different time zones. Some can only get on here occasionally, when the occasion presents itself. Some don't want to show their faces very often. Many start threads, find the answer elsewhere, then either forget to thank (or have no intention of thanking) anyone who may have shown an interest in their posts.....or of even marking it as 'solved'.

It takes all sorts. Fernan may yet answer; give him/her time.

-----------------------------------------

@ fernan:-

Is the problem that you can't find print size settings for the printer itself.....or that you aren't sure what software to use (or, how to print from it?)

For settings, the easiest way to find them is to simply enter 'localhost:631' in your browser's address bar. If your printer's installed, it'll show up here under the 'Printers' tab.

Click on it, then on the next page go to the 'Administration' drop-down and select 'Set Default options'. This will set things on the printer itself, which will use those settings unless otherwise instructed.....most graphics apps, or indeed anything that prints, will allow you to specify size. This usually overides the 'default' printer settings.

Or is it the CUPS printer dialog window that's giving the problems?

Isn't that exactly what forums are all about? I don't know of anybody who posts on a forum, asking for help, with the express intention of being at everybody else's beck & call....

Be polite, and courteous, yes. But there has to be 'give & take'.

Perhaps I have a strange attitude toward stuff like this. I certainly don't hold anything against any other member; if I can help somebody with something, I will. I don't care how long it takes... Smile

(I always thought we all of us come on here either for help, or to help. Or simply to chat. I didn't think we were on a 'schedule'..!

If it was a case of you being my employer, and I consistently turned up late for work, I would expect a bollocking (or at the very least, 'pointed' comments). But as it is.....)

Ah, I'm just 'odd', I guess..!

I think that some people are so used to be almost neglected in other 'social media', that they are simply unaware of the extremely short response time in this forum! And, those other media don't exactly promote politeness as a virtue...
