don't know about you guys but in my printer (hp deskjet 930c) setup (the window you get when you're gonna print) has a 'poster printing' in the 'Features' tab. it cuts atomaticly your document.. problem is it's a bit restricting: you can only do a 2*2, 3*3 or 4*4 poster.. an idea for making a bigger poster would be using kayray's cutting technique, but less- like having four huge pieces and printing each as a 4*4 poster...  hope you understood.. i think my explenation was a bit messy.. oops.

how do you stick them up? do you put them in frames?
i love the effect of the watercolours, both pictures look amazing

just a question for quarkiegirl about the rasterbator thing, how exactially does the image turn out, i looked at the gallery and it REALLY blows the pictures up, if i put in an image about the size of a regular piece of paper (8.5x11") would it blow up to be about 10 pages large? if so that would be so awesome!

I stuck them up with pushpins :) You can see them in the top corners of the English Fashions one.    Nope, I didn't frame them but you certainly could if you really love the result and want to preserve it forever!

Have fun,

Kara

quarkiegirl , oh man! that would be soooo cool! my parents might think i'm odd sticking something like that on my wall but oh well.
i want to find out more about it, i wonder if you can choose how big the image turns out. i'm sure they explain it all
thanks again!

I have done this several times on a photocopy machine. It really is not that hard you make a photocopy of the image you want. Then you cut it into equal sized squares or rectangles.(the larger you want it the more squares) Then you put the small squares one at a time into the photo copy machine and enlarge at about 200 or 400% it all depends on the size of paper and the size you want the poster to be. Do this to all the squares and then cut and past them all together! I find that doing it this way is A LOT CHEAPER and you dont have to was all that ink! It is really smart to go to a collage near by because most of the time they want charge you to make photocopies in the library! Cheesy

Thanks!

Now I gotta see if I can use photoshop to uncolor something... Like, I want to scan one of my son's Bionicle comic books,
and then take out all the colors so all that's left is outlines, then blow it up and print it and let him re-color it.  I think he'd get a big kick out of that!   Anyone know how to do that?

That's a toughie.  What I end up doing (and I admit that it's time consuming and sort of not wholly effective) is play with the auto adjust and the auto contrast (I think those are the two - I'm at work so I can't check.  Bah!  Yet again work gets in the way of my craftyness, but anyway....).  Those even out a lot of the scan inconsistancies.  Then I just paint bucket it.  I can usually get some nice big chunks so all it leaves is some detail work.  I'd love to hear how others handle this!

Luckily, comic book art usually has thick black outlines around areas of flat color... so I was thinking maybe using the eyedropper thingie to select a color, and then replacing it with white, leaving the black outlines alone.  But I've never tried it and I'm not sure photoshop will even do something like that. Smiley  Do you know?
