Enlarging and Printing a Photo at Home – the MAC Version
A number of people asked me about enlarging and printing a photo at home with a MAC computer after I posted on this blog about this process on a PC.
I think that I have found a way!
The first step is using a photo program called Photoscape X which is a free download. I tried the Windows version and assume that the MAC version is very similar. I feel that I can say this having watched several videos on this program (MAC version) on YouTube.
Here is what you need to do to resize a photo in Photoscape X:
- Open your photo in Photoscape X in the Editor.
- Choose Edit – Resize. Depending on what measurement system you use you may want to change the sizing to inches from the default millimeters.
- Change the size of your photo to your desired size. Click Apply.
- Save your photo to the original folder. Rename the file if you don’t want to overwrite your original photo!
There are at least 2 options:
This is program is a free download.
It allows you to save your photo as a PDF which can be printed on multiple pages.
Go to the MAC App Store and look for Split Print.
The app costs $8.49. It allows you to print an enlarged photo over multiple pages on your home computer.
Comments welcome! I would love to hear from MAC users about whether this process works for them!
