In a recent quest to give my teenage son's room an older kid edge, I've been looking for cool ways to decorate his walls. Gone are the days when a Luke Skywalker poster was a good image for his walls. However, I am not willing to let him spray paint his walls with graffiti in an attempt to show his independence. So one theme we have settled on is a rasta, Ziggy Marley thing. Red, green, and yellow flame-retardant cloth will drape from his ceiling and billow towards the walls. A large Rasta Man image will adorn his main wall.
This is where my input came in to the process. I've long been wanting to print big images, as in several feet across, broken up into several frames. Recently a friend suggested I try Rasterbator
to solve my issues of how to print a large image in several pieces. This site is so easy, even a technically-challenged person such as myself can use it with success.
There is a step-by-step guide on how to upload your images to the site. Once you've accomplished this part, you simply decide how many sheets , and what size, of paper you want to print the image on and then you set rasterbation options such as pixel size and color versus black and white. The program then processes your request and produces a PDF file for your printer. The possibilities with this are absolutely mind-boggling! Not only is it cool enough for a teenager's room, it could be great for just about any wall in the house.
